Show & Tell: Fall Stuff

I was kind of in a dilemma where to put my fall stuff since the empty fish tank I was using as a shelf was broke. Hubby has promised to make me a large shelf to go here to hold photos and pretties. BUT that hasn't happened yet. And fall was fast approaching.


Then I remembered the end table between my couches is made for displaying things. So, behold the Autumn-ness...
(Sorry about the blurry pics), I bought two little scarecrows, one of me one for the hub's.

Last year I spread these jeweled pumpkins out, but this year came up with putting them in my 'harvest jar' (which I stuff all kinds of 'found' things in. There is a jeweled pumpkin for each grandchild. Next is the only family picture in the living room, while I wait on the 'shelf'. See the little witch shoes? So cute.


A black tin candle holder witches hat, pumpkin, and red basset finish it out. Love the way this basset's (found at goodwill for the hubs) color goes so well with the autumn stuff.


TaDa!! I'm officially ready now!!
I am SO enjoying the cooler weather!!
We will be trick-or-treating with the grands in their neighborhood, and I'm thinking of taking my puppy.
I just have decide what puppy will be wearing:)

Have a great weekend!!!!
Go to My Romantic Home for more Show and Tell today:)

Very nice displays, though I'll admit I like the basset hound, I have half a one! Very pretty.

Love the pumpkins & gords in the jar! What a great idea. I have so many & they do get kind of strung all over! I may borrow your idea. I still need to go get the buckets of fall decor out of the storage unit. You are so ahead of me. Isn't Trick or Treating with the "GRANDS" fun. I love it. We always have 5 & it's a hoor. Have a great weekend.

What great fall decor. I love how you took things into your own hands and made do with what you have.

The jar is terrific!
