Show and Tell Friday

It's time for Show and Tell Friday. If you would like to participate, drop over to Kelli's at There's No Place Like Home.

Last weekend the boys and I went to a local store that deals exclusively in gifts and seasonal decor items. We enjoy browsing and picking up a little something here and there to make our homes a little more colorful. This store is reasonably priced and they have a Christmas section all year 'round.


Many of my readers know that I like scarecrows. I guess you can tell by the background and header here that they are one of my favorite autumn things. Well, lo and behold this little store had a scarecrow ready for hanging. I thought it would look great hanging outside of my door for the autumn season. I love it!

After we left there, we went to the dollar store and picked up some autumn leaves, a box of pumpkin candles that we will share with others, a ceramic pumpkin that I thought was delightful and a little scarecrow sitting on a bale of artificial straw with a cob of corn and a black-eyed susan beside him. I also bought some of these things for the boys to give their mother. She was delighted.

I bought several of the pumpkins on a piece of binder twin that I will hang along my porch to give it an autumn look. The boys and I plan on going to a local farm where they sell fruit all year round to pick up some gourds, some Indian corn, some cornstalks and a bale or two of hay. Then we will add spider webs and make the place look a little spooky for Halloween.

I hope you enjoyed my show and tell this week. Be sure to click on the link to Kelli's blog and visit others who participate in Show and Tell Friday. I'm sure there will be many autumn decorating ideas this week. Enjoy! ~Blessings, Mary~

  2. Building memories with the boys is what it is all about. I too like scarecrows. I remember how fun they were to make when I was a kid.
    Still very busy with little time to cruise the blogs, but I did want to stop by and say thanks for your visits and your kind words.

    Take care and have a great weekend.

  4. Scarecrows are really neat! I love the homemade ones. I believe up in Bucks Co (PA) they have a contest each year.

  6. I"m sorry I can't do S&T officially any more, since many people can't log on any more. Sad. But I'm glad to have the friends who can!

    I got that same ceramic pumpkin this week - I really like it!

  10. Such a cute scarecrow!
    We got one last year- for outside...he got a little mildew on him from being exposed to the rain but he's still nice enough to put out again. I really need to start my fall decorating soon! But today was our first cool day in a long time...on Tuesday it was 90!

    It sounds like such a fun shopping for all the decor.
    So nice that you and your grandsons do so much together...I think that's wonderful!
    Hugs,

  11. I am just getting into decorating and it's taking awhile. You, on the other hand, seem to have a natural flair. Very nice! I imagine having a hot cup of tea at your place in the fall. Warm and inviting!

  12. Very nice decoration ! We don't think about automn here (Belgium) yet and there is absolutely nothing in the stores. I think it will start in October. We haven't finished summer yet, although this year it was very cold and rainy.

  18. Hi Mary,

    What lovely finds for Autumn decorating. I got out my autumn wreath, and the harvest dolls out. I also have a scare crow that my DIL bought for me last year. Been too busy here to do much decorating so far. But soon!

    Thank you for the directions on setting up the "follow this blog," etc. Hopefully, I can work on it this weekend.

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

    Hugs,
