Easy Fall Decorations

Handy Boy has been anxious to put up our fall and Halloween decorations. Since the first "official" day of fall is coming up, and it's been getting cooler outside, I told him that we could. To make things look less cluttered, after I took out our fall decorations, we tucked away some of our "everyday" decorations into storage. Those items will come back out again after New Year's.

I like to put up small groupings in the kitchen and the living room. The glass jar is something that we found in an antique store recently. It's dark colored glass, with a slight red tint to it. Rob said that his grandmother used to have a jar just like this.
 
Here are the shelves in the kitchen. We bought them ages ago in TJ Maxx. After Thanksgiving, I put Christmas decorations on them. Before I put the fall things up, I had displays of other items; but I was never satisfied with how things looked, so I never took a picture of them. ;-)


I bought these two scarecrows this year. Aren't they cute? I love scarecrows. I feel like I can leave them up past Halloween and through Thanksgiving. I purchased these decorations over time at craft fairs, yard sales or on sale at retail stores.

Even Handy Boy decorated his room. I give him little things to put on top of his dresser. He is so cute, arranging and re-arranging things. I found the little "Boo" skeleton and the little scarecrow at Michael's this year.

So, who is ready for fall? It got down into the 30s last night here in New England...brrrr!

Yes, that's Handy Boy's usual piggy bank. :-) I bought it for him a few years ago, I love actual "piggy" banks!

Very fun! We decorate for fall, too. I love it and the kids INSIST on it. I tell them that we have to wait until after the 1st day of fall (probably the weekend after), just to keep the excitement down around here (or maybe I am in denial that it is getting SO CHILLY here and that summer is really gone . . . ) We are excited for this weekend! A short heat-wave for a few days, then back to seasonal temps! :)

Cute stuff! We like to just decorate for fall so the stuff can hang around for longer. We keep it to mostly scarecrows, pumpkins, gourds, etc. No need to buy Halloween stuff and Thanksgiving stuff!

Great pics..I love a post with lots of pics.

Stop over and visit sometime at Free 2 Be Frugal.

Very pretty! I especially have my eye on that first twiggy wreath. What is it about wreaths that make me take a 2nd look?!? Sweet!
