Fall Has Begun…

Fall has definitely begun in our household. I never decorate for fall or Halloween, I usually leave that up to my sister, who, (I think) goes overboard. This year, however, will be a different story. Why, you ask. Well, because I painted my kitchen cabinets black and didn’t visualize how that would look against my orange/terra cotta walls. Black + Orange = Halloween! For this reason, I have been inspired to really go all out and decorate for the season. I over-shopped this weekend and spent almost $150 on seasonal decor at Kohl’s. I wanted to get it all because they had it all on sale for 50% off but then I went to Stein Mart and T.J. Maxx today and they had cuter stuff cheaper. So now I will have to go over everything that I dont really want from Kohl’s and return it so I can go get more cuter stuff elsewhere. That’s what I get for not shopping around first and I hate returning stuff.

Oh, and this is the first time in a long time that I have used rub ons, lol. I found the most awesome rub-ons for the walls. I may be way behind on what is “in” in the home decor world and scrapbooking but I just could not pass this up. I thought the sayings were so cute. I hope it doesn’t make my house look outdated. Actually, I dont care if it does, I love it! Pic below!

At any rate, here is a sneek peek at my formal dining room. I LOVE those apothecary jars I found and they came filled with the pumpkins, gotta love that! I don’t normally use a tablecloth for my table because I love the beautiful wood but I noticed that Blake is starting to bang around with toys more often and I thought I had better cover it for protection and for the whole decor thing, lol.
