A Fall Vignette that Didn't Cost a Penny!

While I absolutely love holiday decorating ... thanks to a minimal budget, I love *free* holiday decorating even more!  That's why I was happy to have created a vignette on our sofa table in the great room with things I already had on hand.

Whether it's with a bowl of *seasonal* autumnal goodies, filled with faux pumpkins I've gathered over the years ...

or an inexpensive plate from Wal-Mart's BHG line that I scooped up last year (and, happy to say that they're at Wal-Mart again this year, too).

After spending time perched on the bookcase in our sitting room last Fall, this fella (from Michael's) came back for a return appearance ...

and, a lantern, once filled with nautical rope during the Summer months, now has faux leaves in its place ...

with a Fall *crown* made out of picks and leftover ribbon from last year.

Sparkly, little crows, complete with witches' hats, flew on out of our Fall bins and over to branches I recently snatched from the woods, 

annnd, a metal hammered bucket, filled with holiday pillows last year, became a comfy resting spot for a few faux pumpkins this year!  

All of these things came together to create this:


Now let's see if I can get away with spending zero dollars finishing the mantel on our porch!  Wish me luck!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Looks fabulous. I love it. What a great vignette and isn't it fun to just shop the house and our stash to find a whole new vignette. Hugs, Marty

sooo pretty becca! i had the husband get all my "stuff" out of the attic this afternoon b/c he's working this weekend....but Ms. Taylor is spending the night tomorrow night and we're going to "decorate" and season my chalkboard wall. i thought i had only 2 bins of fall decor but he kept handing me bins and bags...where did all this crap come from?!?! Oh, that would be me! every year i say i'm going to go through everything and get rid of stuff but apparently i never do.

have a great weekend sweet friend!

Your Fall decor looks beautiful Becca...especially against your neutral paint. It really stands out! Have a great weekend.

Becca, I just love your fall décor so much and I love when it doesn't cost anything!!! Your home is always perfection.

It all looks so pretty, Becca! It's amazing how different some of the old "tried and true" things can look when simply placed in a new location or combined with different elements. I haven't purchased much of anything this year. I think The Man might have a coronary if I added one more box of anything to my already burgeoning collection of Fall bins!

This is so pretty, Becca! I love the BHG decor at Wally World, too; and, I love free stuff even! Nothing like using things that you already have; and you truly have the knack for making it all look fabulous!
