Still, Fall-ing for Junk...

I must admit, I love Fall...there is something so inviting about it. I can almost smell the Pumpkin Spice Lattes. And with that comes fall decorating...I can't wait! I have just a few mums to take the place of summer plants that are "no longer with us"...
For inspiration, I took a peek back at a post I did last year on JunkMarket Style. Mind if I share it with you?

A bicycle basket, a few gourds and my house numbers welcomed my guests...

A crusty old lawnmover and a few more gourds...

I apologize for my sad looking mums...I have to admit, they'd been neglected. It got cold fast last here in MN and I kind of forgot about them...just a few days earlier my sweet hubby said "Man those are some "Hardy Mums"...ooops!!!

I got this chippy, rusty stand at a barn sale for cheap and this wooden bucket at the French Flea...a perfect "marriage" in my book. There is a base on this stand buried in the rock. I think it would make a nice wine bucket on my deck as well...nice to have options...

A dead summer plant, a pumpkin and a couple of cool metal pieces and we were good to go!

Well anyway, that's what I did last year...I'll be sure to post pictures when I'm done this year.  I PROMISE to take much better care of my mums this time around...or atleast take pictures earlier ;)
When do you start your fall decorating?  Or are you already done???  Can't wait to see what everbody comes up with...
Take care!


  1. Hi Laurel!

    Sorry to put this in comments, however I can't locate your email. Could you please email me back? I could help you abit with the blog request if you wish. :)


  2. I usually don't do any fall decorating outside but I love your's. I'm too cheap to pay $10 or more for a pumpkin and this year, the puppy would just chew everything to bits!

    So Laurel, do you think we'll be standing side-by-side at JB, not knowing it and eyeing the same piece of junk? Hope you find everything you want (notice I didn't say need?)!

  3. Love the fall decor, especially the push mower. I hope you have a great time at the Bonanza! Lezlee
