Fall Decorating, Weekend Finds & More........

Hello, Its Monday!! :)
First, I want to post a pic of my beginnings at fall decorating.
I started dragging some things out of storage on friday.
The top of the tv armoire is done.
There is still a bunch I need to go through and decide whether or not I am keeping .
I couldn't believe that I had as much fall stuff ; as I do christmas.

I went to just a couple yard sales this weekend. I really wasnt in the mood but knew if
I didnt stop , then I would regret it on Monday.

I picked up these books for 25 cents. the hummingbird book( which is a little blurred in the pic) has beautiful watercolor pics in it. I didnt realize there were so many different kinds of hummingbirds. :).
The flea market finds book is awesome! Lots of great ideas for those t2t finds.
The book on building sheds and other buildings has great info.
I had looked at it online before.

Some more goodies.
the table mat ( 25 cents) is going in a thrift store swap that I am in.
the basket - 50 cents
small basket 10 cents
hardback book 25 cents
old bear pattern - freebie!!
white cotton sugar bag( in bottom of pic) was $1.00
large (4 yard)piece of cream flannel.) also, $1.00!

We got my dad's deck sealed.
Also came home and did mine. Sunday morning I was watering flowers, got the deck wet and slipped off the step. Stupid me!! I got a big 'ol bruise on my leg and I feel stiff. :(

Look! Look!

  1. Your fall decor looks great! I'll probably hold up and start after labor day weekend. I know it will be hard for me...

    Great garage sale finds! I'm in love with that basket!

  2. They say that Halloween comes in second for the most decorations these days, after Christmas, of course :) So you're right on track!

    Everything looks great!

    You sure do find a lot of great yard sale finds in your area. I rarely find Prims but I guess I really don't hit too many sales either! LOL I just stay away and save my money and space! LOL

    Have a great rest of your day!

  3. Hey Kim!!! I haven't gotten out anything yet, but I am hoping to this week.

    Great finds this weekend I especially love the basket. No I wasn't in Berling this weekend to go to Zincks. It is on my list though. LOL. I have a whole list started of places I want to go when my kids go back to school. Most of them are fabric stores between home and Berlin. Did you know there is a thrift store in Berlin too??? Another place for me to visit.


  4. Oh I hope your ok!! Stupid steps they always get in the way!!lol...I love your fall decor. I thought fall was starting here, I saw some trees on Saturday that were already changed but then today it got really warm!! So who knows!!LOL
    You found some really great things at your yard sales, I went to a few but didn't find much at all!! Have a great day!~Wendy

  5. Thank you SO much for the blog award! You made my day! :)
