I love Fall…
Autumn is definitely my favorite season!!! I love when the air starts to get a little crisper in the mornings. Especially if you have had staggering heat for the month of August. I wish September weather would never end. My hubby and I enjoy sitting outside still in the evenings and having a glass of wine in the fresh cool air. Of course my very favorite part of fall is all the beautiful colored leaves. I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than fall on the East Coast and a close second is the beautiful fall we have here on the West Coast.
We just moved back to B.C and we are loving it here. Not all of my stuff has made it here yet, we have one more load coming next weekend. It’s mostly storage stuff …So we have the storage stuff, my husbands garage tools and my sons out side stuff, like his playhouse still to come and find room for :/…So as I was thinking about getting some decorations up for fall I remembered that all my fall, halloween and Christmas decor is still in Edmonton
I have to say that moving to a small town with no major craft stores here (Michael’s)… and with the leaves not changing here yet, decorating was a little challenging I usually have things decorated a little sooner but I have most of it done for now.. thanks giving weekend is when I will buy a few bunches of fall colored flowers to fill the house with. And than after thanks giving weekend we just add our halloween decor to what we have out for fall.
I wanted to make a nice big wreath for the front door with some bush branches and leaves from my yard but I couldn’t find a wreath ring anywhere so it will have to wait for my trip to Kelowna (bigger town with a Michael’s).
Most of what I found to decorate with was either from the dollar store or my local grocery store… cheap!! I like that:))
I got some burlap from Canadian Tire, it comes in small packages for covering your bushes for winter. It was $5. The sign Happy Harvest sign, the fake flower, leaves and the little scare crow were from the dollar store.. GOTTA LOVE THAT!! I had the welcome sign on my entry wall so borrowed it from there.
I made the little “thanks” banner with just some fabric, ribbon and some stick on letters cause my printer is on the fritz. Letter from walmart for 3 dollars and I have the hole alphabet ) The glass pumpkin are from dollar store…
Baby pumpkins were $1.50 each at grocery store and I used mason jars I had and fill them with flowers my hubby got me last weekend.
These wreaths were $10 at walmart.. they are a great size for my french doors.
I don’t think I spent over $75 dollars. My large pumpkins were the most expensive thing I bought at $8 a pumpkin … and of course today I saw them for $5.
Happy Fall and Happy Thanks giving to all you Canadian enjoying thanks giving in October !!
