I'M FALLING!!!!

 






 
Even though the heat index here in south GA is 105 degrees today and it’s still officially summer, I decided I was going to start FALLing!  That is, I pulled out the FALL décor today.  After all, they already have CHRISTMAS decorations in many of the stores!!!!  (I am SO NOT ready for that!)  I decided I might as well enjoy a month of FALL decorations before I have to pull out the HALLOWEEN trappings.  Then it will be time for about 3 weeks of THANKSGIVING then I’ll pull out the really big guns for the end of Nov. and the month of December.  WHEW!!!!  I’m tired just thinking about it!

 


Have you seen the two and three tiered trays that seem to be the “IN” thing in holiday décor?  I have salivated over all those I see on PINTEREST for awhile, so not too long ago HOBBY LOBBY (love that place!) had theirs on 50% off so I figured that was my SIGN…true, right???  

I had a difficult time deciding between painted metal, galvanized metal, or wood but finally went with a white metal one since so much of my kitchen is white.  I’d really like to have the galvanized or wooden one for FALL holidays, but the white one will look really good with all my gingerbread items for CHRISTMAS.  Maybe HL will have another sale and I will grab another one😊

These are all from Amazon:




So, what do you think of my first time diving into TRAY DECORATING?  I’m sort of proud of it; it actually turned out better than I thought since I am so NOT good at decorating.  The chubby little scarecrow and the squirrel came from Hobby Lobby this year and the “blessed” sign came from $TREE (altered by me), but everything else I already had.  I love the FALL pillow with the LITTLE RED TRUCK.  It came from Dollar General last year. They had some other cute one this year, too.



 
 
Here are a few other tiered trays decorated for FALL…thanks to PINTEREST.




I also pulled out my fall plates and placemats.  The placemats were a gift from my sweet neighbor when she was downsizing to move.  They also came from $TREE but are super quality and well made.  And…they are perfect for a FALL  table.  (Thanks, Lois:)  I bought the plates just a few years ago from Wal Mart but I doubt they are still available.  They are also perfect for fall…a cream color with just a tad of brown around the edges.  (You know what a “tad” is, right?  We southerners sometimes forget we have our own vocabulary, so I’m never sure who understands what I’m talking about!!!)



 

I love this pumpkin soup tureen…but it’s never seen a single drop of soup!  I just thought it was beautiful for decoration and bought it a few years ago at TJMaxx. 



 I love to decorate my porch for the seasons.  Here is my ivy “tree”.  It will look better when I have some real pumpkins to sit beside it. 



 

And here is my rocking chair with a cute  FALL pillow (from Wal Mart last year) and a cute scarecrow  from Hobby Lobby.




 I love holiday flags.  This one is new.  Got it at Dollar General the other day for $1.50!  You know I love a bargain! 



 And here are a few more items that found their way into my FALL decorating frenzy.



 




 



 
Now for a sneak peak at two of the cutest HALLOWEEN items I found today at Dollar General….it’s not that I’m cheap, but when you live in a small town you are excited to have dollar stores cause you don’t have much else!


I just couldn’t resist the gingham check and well, the wine one was just too cute not to get…and it was the last one they had😊

 

Is it just me, or does it bother anybody else that you walk down an aisle in a store these days and you see FALL, HALLOWEEN, AND CHRISTMAS decorations altogether?????????????  Doesn’t each holiday deserve its own special time in the spotlight??

 

I am sooooooooooooooo looking forward to when it is really FALL!  I can barely wait for the cooler weather and my first....

I can taste it now (sort of)!  Do you like PUMPKIN SPICE???  Some do, some don’t, but I’m one who DO!!

  1. Goodness it's hot in your neck of the woods! I can see why you would love to see a bit of fall right about now. Your tray looks beautiful and I love all of your other fall touches, too. I have been going through my old fall posts lately and thinking maybe I should grab a few a pumpkins. Maybe just not yet! ;) Enjoy!

  2. I better go to Pinterest to see what's new and in for this year! I didn't know the tiered trays were so popular. Yours looks fabulous! All your decor looks really cute. I started to decorate today and still have just a few things left to get out. Like you I will be getting my Halloween out on Oct.1st and it's almost as bad as Christmas around here! I love Fall and we've had a few cool days just to tease us. I think this weekend is one of those times and I can't wait! I find lots of fun things at the Dollar store and also Walmart..especially Walmart's pillows. So affordable and cute! Have a good week!

    1. Yaya, I am sooo envious of anyone's cool weather right now. The weather folks here say we might get a "tease" in a week or so but I won't believe it till I "feel" it! I am sooooooo over HOT weather!

  3. What a fun post. You've inspired me to start thinking about a few fall decorations. I may need a trip to Michaels over the weekend. Take care!

    1. Sure wish we had a Michaels close by but nearest one is 70 mi. away and it's not great. Thank goodness there is a Hobby Lobby only about 30 mi. away. Just went over to your blog. Awesome challenge for everyone:)

  6. You ARE ready for fall. You've done a great job decorating for it.
    I'm still enjoying the summer but we don't get hot temperatures very often here. Summer is like one long spring!

  7. I'm not ready for fall up here in the north, but it seems to be coming in with temps in the 50s. But I very much like all your tiered arrangements. I really do need to get a tiered tray!

  9. Fall....my FAVE time of the yr. The only issue I have with it is that it does not stick around near as long as winter and summer!!! Oh my gosh, I love Dollar General but for somethings I even love the Dollar Tree. Why buy things at one store and pay five bucks when you can get the same thing for a buck. Love your tray. I have a two tier metal basket I think I will do up for fall. I love the two and three tier metal trays but I have enough stuff so I am not going to go out and buy one. Yours looks great and so does the rest of your decor. I bought four small pumpkins to put around my candles in the tray on my dining table today...that is my start!!

    1. Thank you so much for the compliments:) In our little town if you don't like $Tree and General Dollar you are mostly out of luck, except for WalMart!!! Our $Tree is not great but better than nothering! And FALL is my favorite too:)

  10. I will have to get started soon! My Fall decorations are in the attic, gotta get motivated and this post helps:) I love the tiered trays, yours is PERFECT! It is nice to have a touch of FALL inside, because it is still HOT/SUMMER outside where I am. I am dreaming of cooler days ahead. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

    1. Since you and I are both GA girls, we know not to expect cool until at least October! Seems our summers just get hotter and hotter!

  11. Girl you DO know how to decorate, and more than just a tad! My daughter has a galvanized three-tier thing and she always makes it look so cute. Yours is awesome. Now I need one! And YES to pumpkin spice! Everything from candles to cookies. xoxo

  13. I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative.
