It's Done...Fall Decor Inside...I Promise.-

I keep adding and adding more Fall Decor inside and it's all YOUR fault fellow bloggers.  I keep reading and get more great ideas and I have to stop now.  It's become an obsession and I have to move on, right?  Ahem...

Which means...I have yet ANOTHER Fall post to do now!!  Let me take you on my journey of Fall Decor throughout the house in pictures...some you've seen...some that are new.  I just love Dollar Tree.  (hint hint)
I took a metal tray that I had and placed it under an already existing piece on the sofa table in the formal living area.  I went to Dollar Tree and purchased the different colored pumpkins, etc and a couple of stems of Fall leaves.  I decided to have all the pumpkin things on one side and place the leaves on the other side.  Grouping the pumpkins together caused me to have to use less pumpkins and it sort of pops out more than the usual of just placing the pumpkins all the way around and inserting leaves in between.  The pumpkin table runner seems to pop more now with all the colors in the centerpiece.

I wasn't completely happy with this area and I added the raffia ribbon to each sconce.  It just seemed to perk things up on this table.  Remember the so-called sconces are from Dollar Tree...a glass candle holder and vase that were glued together!

Then while I was wandering down the aisles of Dollar Tree, I found this resin container.  What to do with it?  That was my first thought and then I remembered the pumpkins that were in my cart.  The larger one fit perfect.  It looked really blah like...but I figured I could come up with something.  Once the raffia ribbon was out...I knew what I wanted to do.  Just a small touch made a huge difference.  This was added to a table in the family room.  Can we say Dollar Tree?  $2.00?!

I bought this plaque last weekend at the rummage sale I went to.  $.50.  Nice touch on the dining room table.  It says, "In Everything Give Thanks" appropriate for the table. there are my added touches.  I'm going to take you back through the inside home Fall decor that I've done this year.

Here's the centerpiece that is on the breakfast room table.  This entire thing cost me under $5 this year.  I already had the candle holders...found them last year for $1 and I had the crocheted runner.  I'll give you a little tidbit of information about plastic placemats.  They tend to get extremely bent out of shape in storage.  I tossed them in the dryer for just a minute or two and they were back to a nice flat placemat.

Here's another peek at the fireplace....
Here's a pic with the added white lights.

Several different angles of the formal dining room all dressed up!
