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 ...
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!
