Been working on my "Fall Tree"...

Last year I got the idea to do a Fall I just got the tree out and used some
a couple of leaf garlands wrapped around it, bought some of the orange Halloween lights
at Big Lots wrapped those around it...and ...liked what I saw although I'm still trying to
figure out what I want to do around the bottom of it...I have used material before this time
I might use some "fake" hay or pumpkins...still pondering...

this year I went with a friend to Garden Ridge and they had some birds on their
Christmas aisle and I thought with the colors of the birds I could use them on my fall
tree...clipped them and ....liked the way it looked...

and back in August during a church picnic noticed alot of fallen pine cones on the
ground collected those and little did I know at the time how good they would look
on my fall tree!

here's a closer view.............

I just love this little tree ...bless it's little heart it goes up this time of year Sept/Oct
and won't be taken down until after Valentine's Day ...decorating it for Christmas,
Winter, Valentine's Day and Easter :)

I needed a tree topper so I opted for some fall ribbon...if you have any comments
or suggestions please let me know I would love to hear them!

Have a Blessed Day!!!

My Goodwill finds...

I look at these net lights every year they come out in the store during the holidays so
this was my chance to try them for $1.50....

I'm trying to collect prelit villages "here and there" I just love to plug things in!
and for $6.00....can't beat it!!!

I think I got this frame for 50 cents...

and this ceramic dish...seems like it's been at my house once already (LOL!)
I use it for my facial cleansing soap...50 cents

and here's the collection that I got on that day...I just love to find a good bargain!
I hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for stopping by! and please leave
me a comment if you'd like.

God Bless!
