Fall is my favorite time of year. There are so many things to love about fall. One of my favorite things is decorating for it. I have put away everything that is summer and replaced with fall things. The first thing I did was get a new doormat from Target for the back door. That combined with these rust colored mums and a pretty wreath I already had made a fresh look for the season. For our mailbox I used an iron scarecrow. It's hard to see in the picture but it's there! I took the summer cushions off the furniture and replaced with a couple of fall pillows.

Now for the inside, I use the same decorations each year but try to find new ways to use them. I bought these cute little owls at Dollar Tree to tuck in different places. In my Peter's pottery bowl,
 I used some acorns I recently found on a trip to Michael's and a couple of felt pumpkins from Target dollar section. I will use this bowl all the way to Thanksgiving. Another favorite thing of mine is getting fall magazines in the mail. Makes for great reading in the carpool line at the schools!

I have not used my fall garland in a few years but decided to use it this year. I tucked a few pumpkins and owls here and there.

Hot chocolate time and my pretty mugs!

Ok this picture has nothing to do with fall but it cracks me up. This particular day Matt got on purple and got to pick a prize out of the treasure chest in his class. He picked this gross set of teeth. David picked him up that day and he couldn't wait to run to David and smile big. Life with boys! I love it!

Happy fall decorating!

Okay, as usual, I am now depressed. I have gotten out a few of my things but of course it looks nothing like your cute house! Everything looks awesome. Matt, those teeth look like candy corn!!!!
Happy fall!
