Dollar Stores: Autumn Deco Ideas

Great thing about catalogs (like Pottery Barn); is free inspiration.  Last fall's issue showed glass jars of votive candles with twine wrapped leaves on the outside~~I decided to buy those $1.00 candles and do some copy~cat decorating~~

Used some jute wrapped around a big pillar candle with glass hurricane shade:
found some more pretty leaves and fall picks to play with too~~

Last year I bought this huge pine~cone candle at the resale shop for under $2.00~~
today I bought the smaller restaurant platter at Catholic Charities; loving the brown stripe and layering it with a bigger platter that is "fallish" looking~~

Bought this vintage Halloween pumpkin last year for only $7.00~~still lights up! ~~you can barely make out the cat in this photo right beneath the pumpkin~~

I like seeing a bit of autumn in each room of the house; sometimes it's just really plain and simple: a small candle with pinecones in a bowl.  Are you loving this time of the year?

I'm joining these parties:
