We are having a great fall week end in Eastern New Mexico!
I found some treasures at the yard sales Saturday.....
Eastern New Mexico is being blessed with another rainy day....we need all the rain we can get in this dry area. H went out early this morning and picked some peppers....bell and hot......so, we've decided to stay dry inside and do a little cooking. After cooking for a family for many years, empty nesters find it hard to cook for two. I say....why fight it.....cook like I always did!
It was slim pickin's at the yard and estate sales this past weekend. Yard sales are a LOT of work and I guess not many wanted to do that on Labor Day weekend.....lol!
I thought you might enjoy seeing the "inside story" at one of the estate sales I went to.
Tiered stands are going to be a popular fall decorating staple, but have you checked out the price tag on them? Maybe I don't know the right place to buy one, but I couldn't find any for less than $50.
What's a girl on a decorating budget to do? Make her own of course!
Although we are a few weeks away from the official start of fall, I usually get in the fall spirit around the first of September. I had picked up a neutral tree at a yard sale last weekend and it gave me just the motivation I needed to start my fall decorating. The fact that the stores are full of fall decor may have influenced me a little too....lol!
I unpacked a tote of shabby chic pumpkins to decorate the kitchen in a fall theme, but I still have a few more totes to unpack before I am ready to do any more fall decorating. I wanted to have a pumpkin in my fall tablescape tonight, so I had to come up with an alternative until I get back to the studio to unpack those fall totes.
I love the look of a simple and easy pumpkin made by forming a circle of tea cups on a plate and putting a dried pumpkin stem in the center....easy peasy!
