My Fall Decor Home Tour

We're falling into fall here at the Garrett Homestead. Here's how I've been decorating. Let's start in the kitchen.
This mirror was a new addition since last fall, so this year I wanted to hang my wreath over it. I love the  layering. 
Here's my island:
I put these pumpkins on a some candle holders I was no longer using. 
Even Joey was impressed! Ha!
Behold the plate rack! ;)
Remember, I found the rack at a thrift store for $4 and the toil plates at another thrift store for $6 total.
Here, I added a pumpkin to a side table. 
These scarecrows made their way to the bathroom...
Putting candy corn in this cherub dish added some whimsy to the table. P.S. The cherub/fish piece was purchased at a garage sale for just $3! The lamp? $10 at an antique store. Frame? .50 cents at a yard sale.
I'll post pictures of the outside as soon as it's all ready. Right now, we're still planting mums and adding pumpkins. 

Thought For the Day: It's not Autumn until you get out the fall decor!

This week, I'll be linking up with:
 and 2805

Well, my friend, I like your about me statement about believing in prayer and carbs! I also believe in lifting up people instead of tearing them down. Being a positive person! Being humorous, as I would have shot myself loooong before now if I had no sense of humor. ;-)

I don't decorate for the seasons as it's just too much trouble for this ol' lady anymore. We're lucky to get the lights up (hubs' duty) and to have a tree since we're empty nesters. Plus orange isn't a favorite color for me and it doesn't go with the pink in my house. :-)

Nice to meet you, sugar! But your home is gorgeous! Going to peruse your blog some more and add you to my Google Reader.

Everything looks fallish and festive. I have to agree that it's definitely here. I, for one, am ready!
