Fall Entry
This is what greets our guests when they enter our home this autumn season. I just love dressing up this little tree every month (holiday). I have pictures of several different ones I've done in the past if you want to look in my archives. If you have a tree like this (you know, a small lit tree that you put on your porch at Christmas) I would encourage you to get it out and have some fun decorating it now. It is such a simple and enjoyable way to usher in the beautiful Fall season.
Guess what? Everything on here, with the exception of the tree) I got from my local Dollar Tree store!!! They have absolutely gorgeous autumnal ribbon, leaf garland, pumpkins and gourds to choose from! I was there just today and noticed they also had all of their beautiful Christmas ribbon, etc.. out. If the budget allows, now would be the time to pick those up because they have such a beautiful array of Christmas items to choose from. Next pay period I have budgeted in a trip to pick up ribbons, wrapping paper, etc. Remember, try to plan ahead, it will save you money and time in the long run!

*For those of you who asked about the celebration plate in the last post, here's the info:

It's called the "Dress Me Up" plate and it's made by Southern Living. I got mine off of Ebay several years ago and absolutely love it! I just checked Ebay and they still have some for those that are interested. Here's the link.
