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~
