Fall Living Room

Do you know what is weird? I hardly ever go to Target. I always forget about it and I guess I am just a Walmart girl! I did happen to go to Target a couple of weeks ago though and found these cute white candle holders. They were only $5 and $4 so I grabbed them and it wasn't until a week or so later that I thought about what I could do with them. I remembered those pumpkins that I bought at Oops and thought they would fit perfectly.

Well, they were a little too small so I just stuck some fake leaves under them to fill the space.

I put one of my favorite fall arrangements on our end table.

This is a bad picture but I took out the green apples and put an assortment of pumpkins in the dough bowl on our coffee table.

On Cody's beloved CD stand there is an arrangement and a small white pumpkin from Oops.

The fun thing is that closer to Halloween I can just turn the pumpkin around to see the black cat.

On the hearth I put my white pumpkins on the candlesticks and then closer to Halloween I'll turn them around too:

I also stuck some leaves under these to give them a little more color.

That is all I have done this year in the way of fall decorations. It might look like a lot to some of you but for me it is simple compared to last year. Since I really scaled back this year I don't think I will get tired of it so fast and I can save all my energy for Christmas! :)

Love all those pumpkins! I haven't gotten my autumn stuff out yet. I have to convince my husband to go up to the attic to drag it down. I won't go up there if you paid me. Spiders. *shivers*

Is "gotten" a word? That totally looks wrong. : )

Lauren said...

Random you would post about Target today. Well, not ABOUT target, but you know...I saw your mom at target today. She's so sweet. When we walked off, my husband reminded me that she might not have known who I was. I mean, I know she knew she knew me somehow. So, tell her it was me--I should have told her. Anyway, she was so sweet, and she was in the baby section! =) I know she is so excited! Hope you are feeling good.

Cari said...

Well these are great which is of course what all of your decor is! I can't wait to see what you do for Christmas!

Darlene said...

I LOVE it!! It looks so good. I am a Target girl all the way but the closest one is about an hour drive away. So, I have to settle for Walmart BUT the great news is that they are re-modeling ours and when I went in there the other day it is looking WONDERFUL....reminds me of a Target...YAYAAYAYAY!!!!

CRICKET said...

You are so creative!

Lisa Bowman said...

Love all your decorations and paint colors! I have a question- how do your store all your decorations-they all look brand new. I use the plastic totes but find some items still look bad when I unpack them- any secrets?

Jennifer said...

Love your fall touches! Beautiful!!

Richella said...

It all looks beautiful!

I'm so glad to hear you say that you're a WalMart girl. I love both WalMart and Target. I've heard so many people say "Oh, I just hate WalMart" and it makes me sad. I know a little about the Walton family and how incredibly generous they are. WalMart isn't a perfect corporation, I know, but I do think the Waltons are good people and that they really care about what they're doing. So I'm happy to shop at WalMart, and I'm always happy with the great deals I find there!
