Yucky Weather=Yucky Photos...

I wanted to share some photos of my fall decor- but the weather is just blechy (which equals awful light in my house).  I have decided to share them anyway... 

Well, here is what you see when you first walk into my house.  
-tall candle holder in the back- $2.00 from Hobby Lobby
-tall vanilla candle-gift
-copper colored double 5x7 photo frame- $3.00 at walmart with $1.00 Target paper inside
-smaller copper frame-$2.00 Target clearance
-candle covered with a strip of burlap-$5.00 from Michaels
-sparkly pumpkin-$.75 at Goodwill

Then, here is my newest .99 basket filled with potpouri from Walmart $5.00

Here is my other display in the living room- I know it is busy!  I like it though-

-Halloween candle holders- .99 each
-statues from Hobby Lobby- $1-$3

-tall "spooky" tree- free from yard sale- sprinkled some moss around the bottom and modge-podged some of the paper from the Target $1.00 pack I bought.  I am looking for things to add to the top to make it more "spooky".  

Then, there is the kitchen....
When you first walk in you see: 
- photo of my kitties- free from Walgreens, .99 holder and free frame
-huge glass bowl- gift (with limes, ivy, and grapes inside for now- $2.00 off local craigslist site)
-bell jar-from the $5.00 grab bag sale I posted previously about
-silver tray w/ spray paint -.50 with .25 ghost and .99 holder (all from Goodwill)
-Candle w/ burlap wrapped around it

On the other side of the sink...
-free paper towel dispenser I painted brown
-plate from grab bag sale painted brown w/ more of the Target paper on .75 holder from a Texas thrift store.  
-the moss ball display on the left is possibly changing- I can't decide if I like the candle holder with it (trying to decide before I paint it).  

Here is my veggie storage area... I painted a bucket that had been given to me at work and painted scroll work on the front.  Did the same thing to the knife set from Ikea and then bought the black basket at Goodwill for .99

Here is my dryer... I am not very happy with it yet- still looking for things to add.  Trying to decide if I should paint the lamp, recover the shade, and I am not sure what to do with the candle holders... I am open to suggestions.    I think that the candle holders are perhaps too tall....

and do you remember the pitiful pink tissue dispenser I found recently?  Here it is again, but rehabbed and refabbed :)   Perfect for holding my dryer sheets.  

I hope you enjoyed this small Fall tour of my house :)  Have a wonderful weekend!
