Fall/Halloween Decor

RHONDI at ROSE COLORED GLASSES
is having an AUTUMN PARTY

Just wanted to share my fall/halloween decor in my dining room, I know it's early for Halloween, so I tried to keep it more along the "fall" lines...but YOU KNOW it's soooo hard for a crafty girl to not be able to decorate according to the next holiday especially one as fun as Halloween!! I would also like to add that I got everything for the cheap, either at thrift stores or the Dollar Tree. The most expensive thing was the tablecloth that I bought for $5 at my favorite thrift store.

EEEEK! I can't wait to put more stuff up! My husband has laid down the law and said I'm not allowed to put up anything really "halloween" untill October *sits in corner and pouts* But I think this will do for now.

Hi Amy
I love the look of the little black birds perched everywhere. The other day a flock of a couple hundred blackbirds was passing by and decided to stop in our backyard. That was a little sacry! Thanks for joining the party.
Hugs, Rhondi

Hello,
I enjoyed looking at your fall decor! You have found some wonderful things to decorate with and at bargain prices. That is wonderful. The black crows top your pumpkins and other autumn pretties perfectly. Sending autumn blessings your way. Vicki

Great thrifty fall decor ideas. Dollar Tree, 99 Cent Only, Walmart & Target are great for finding cheaper things to decorate with. Not to mention thrift stores. I got me one of those Target Dollar Spot $2.50 twig pumpkins as well. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment. And I enjoyed looking over your blog as well. You have lots of crafty ideas.

Our husbands must be related - mine is fine with the fall decorating, but did one of those heavy sighs that husbands are so good at, when I tried to put out the Halloween decorations. He reminded me that Halloween is still over 5 weeks away (me: yes, dear - what's your point?) LOL
So, my Halloween decorations are still in the attic - maybe I'll try again NEXT week!! :)
You have a such a lovely home and a keen eye for decorating! Great blog, BTW!!!

Those black birds creep me out when I see them in the stores, but you made them look like a great part of your decor.
