fall around the house

i'm trying to make the most of summer leaving me...and that terrible winter that is so quickly approaching.  yikes!!

what always makes a lady feel better (chocolate)...a pretty house! so I spent $5 on a few little things, and spread them around...


i love this little lady...i change her goodies out each season. (ps...the rusty bucket is from grandma e's farm...the piece of tape says, "DE"...love it)

i love this hurricane jar...found it a few years ago at TJ Maxx for $7...new seasons roll around and the contents change accordingly!  fun!

all the inside doors on the first floor of the house have these little guys...they are actually candle rings (which makes them super inexpensive)...add some pretty ribbon and hang them and viola!


the front door...i love this little guy.


and of course, what's a new season without a new family picture...and with our little jada being official and all...it was soooo necessary!

I really like your hurricane jar. I've been wanting one just like that but haven't seen any around. I once saw the Barefoot Contessa fill hers with coffee beans and then a candle. The hot candle made the aroma of the beans spread around the room. I love the smell of coffee beans!

You have a beautiful family!

You are very creative. I love all of your ideas! I did get a few things out but my splurge this month was to have my house cleaned today in prep for my husbands surgery. It was a real treat and blessing for us! I have a few pieces like your hurricane jar and love to fill them too! Thanks for posting your new decor!

What interesting finds...I don't look forward to winter, but I have to admit I love the colors of autumn.

Very Nice.....now come do mine. :) I keep thinking I will put up all my fall decor and then it snowed and I started thinking Christmas. So I'm trying to get back into the fall mood.

I love the family picture! What a beautiful family.

Do you do Jada's hair? If you do, (I think I once read a post that said you do) would you be willing to do a how to post on your favorite hair style? My girls need something new and I'm at a loss.
