You all know I have a love for thrift stores, it's the whole treasure hunting thing.
Well this particular day happened to be "stuff an entire bag of clothes for $4.00" day. My thoughts were, "This could be FUN!" I found a ton of great clothes for my 5, 9 and 11 year old. I honestly can't imagine buying clothes full price for my kids. (They just grow out of them or ruin them within a month or two!) If I don't buy their clothes at the thrift store, it's at Target for 70% off. I promise, they have cute clothes and don't look like rag a muffins. Promise.
Anyway, I ran across this Pottery Barn Burlap table decor thing while shopping at the thrift store.
I wondered if it could be labeled as a head covering just somehow and I could stick it in my clothing bag. (Maybe???)
The sweet older lady at the cashier just looked at me and said, No, she didn't think I could call it a head covering.....BUT instead of ringing it up at $5.00 (which I wasn't going to pay, I mean HEY I just stuffed 50.00 worth of clothes in my bag for 4.00!) she rang it up for 2.00. I love that particular cashier. I'll always wait in her line even if it means double the time.
I picked up these pumpkin plates on an earlier date but they are so cute and fall like I had to show you again. Added to that collection is now a .50 pear jar......can it get any cuter???? Each plate cost .75 cents.
So here is what I did with my $2.00 thrift store find. I bought a few squash at a little fruit stand.
A few weeks ago (as my weekly readers know!) I found this iron bowl at a garage sale for 6.00. I had fun playing around with it on the table, but may move it outside on the steps too!
I LOVE the color orange!
I just "dolled" up the bowl with the pumpkin and pinecones.
OH and check out this BEAUTIFUL rustic box Katrina from Bunches and Bits made from leftover pieces of her fence! I want an old fence to take apart!!!
HAPPY FALL EVERYONE!!!!
What's your favorite way to decorate for fall??? Do you like the "harvest" part or the scary Halloween decor? :-) Or both!
