Loving my fall collection!

So a few days ago I showed you a picture that I brought in from another room of my house that reminds me of fall, well I finally got around to decorating my den. Again, it's only looking fall inside. Here in Texas, we hit 90 for the last 2 days, crazy weather, I'm so done! Come on fall!!!
This is probably my favorite room of my house, it's filled with the things I love. See my new green chairs, a great find from Target! I have fabric for pillows, BUT haven't gotten them made yet and I have plans for another coffee table, soon I hope!
 My name is Laura and I have an addiction to pumpkins, raise your hand if you have the same weakness! Come a little closer and check them out.
I love this pic, it could be a card!
 and another, just love them, especially my sweet little fairy to watch over them all!

Here is a tip to remember when decorating! This wall is huge, this large picture is the perfect scale to cover the wall and if you notice I covered the ends of the wall with a totally different type of art and a vase of sticks. This vignette is full of colors, layers, textures. It is interesting to the eye, making you want to come closer and take a look. I think those things, (color, layer, texture, etc) are key to decorating!
oh and I love acorns too!
and scarecrows! I guess I should have titled this  Loving All Things Fall! What about you, do you have a growing collection of fall decor??? I'm partying over at Savvy Southern Style & Beth's Home Stories A2Z, come check out all the great tips!

Dollar store pumpkins

I love the pumpkins at the dollar store, why because they only cost a dollar! But, also because they are the right size and you can do so much with them. Check out my topiary.
 I spray painted the black ones and added polka dots, the one in the middle I used that new spray paint made by Krylon called Glitter Blast. If you haven't used it be warned, when it says blast that is exactly what it does!

And this one is for fall, brown and orange pumpkins were glittered with the Glitter Blast. These have a wooden dowel going all the way thru them, super simple and so fun!
And this one has a fish net hose on it with some black leaves and a little orange sparkle fabric from Walmart. Has anyone noticed that Walmart has fabric again! I'm lovin that! That's it, run to your local Dollar store and pick up some pumpkins and get your craft on!
