Apology and Fall Decor

Alright, I have to apologize for not posting in over a month! School started up and, as it's my senior year, I've been pretty busy. I have a few projects I'm working on now, that I can't wait to share with you all, but for now I thought I'd show off my fall decorations. They aren't necessarily finished (They might not ever be, I tend to just keep messing and messing :P ) but I want to show you what I have now:

The tree is sort of my re-imagining of an idea I got off the Better Homes and Gardens website. It was SUPER simply. I got the tree branch from my yard and the fake leaves at the dollar store. All I had to do was cut them apart (they came in pairs of two) and hot glue them where I wanted them. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, it's sort of the "center piece" of my fall decor.

The table center piece, also inspired by the Better Homes and Gardens website.

The welcome "sign" is a BP knock-off which I realize is hanging too far above that tiny shelf. ;)

This is another BP knock-off. This corner is not really finished. I intend on replacing the pine cones with a candle and hanging two other "lanterns".

Here's a couple shots of the overall effect of the kitchen decor:

The majority of this stuff was just purchased from the dollar store for super, super cheap. The rest of it was stuff I already had lying around that I just tweaked for the season.

I'll probably end up doing another Fall decor post before the end of the season, because I got quite a bit more I'd like to do, but that is all for now.

Thanks so much for reading and subscribing!
