Fall Decorating Part 2...


Melissa at The Inspired Room is hosting Fall Nesting Week.

I couldn't get enough of that Fall ribbon. It's all over my house now. I decided to make a couple of small swags with it. I bought these little picks from HL and tide on the ribbon. For some reason I'm really into decorating my lamps. Not sure why.




I also changed out my photo's to my favorite Fall pic's of the kids. This was not hard to do. I already had the pictures in the frames. I also have Christmas and Easter pictures in there too.








Next week I'm going to share my scare-a-crows. Don't you love that name...scare-a-crow. I suppose they couldn't think up a better name. It's sort of like calling bleach...kill-a-germ or a vacuum...suck-up-dirt. Why didn't they call it garden caretaker or Bob. Okay, now I understand. ;-)

I LOVE your decorated lamps and I remembered you said in another post that you switched your pictures out seasonally with the others kept in the frame - great idea!! I can't wait to see your scare - a -crow!!!

You creative crafty women just chap my hide! Where do you come up with these brilliant ideas? I would never think to decorate the lamp shades...but look how AWESOME they look!!! And the idea of putting seasonal pictures of your family in the frames....well that's just genius. And completely annoying that I never thought of that!

I can't wait to break out the photo of my little man from last year decked out in his lion costume.

This year his father get's to pick..he will be a race car driver.
At 2!
I am thinking turtle but alas, it's daddy's turn to pick.

Your children’s fall pictures are so cute! Love the elegant touch to your lamps. Your home is looking welcoming. Darn, lol everyone is making this reluctant lady start to feel its time to get ready for fall. I always hate to see Summer end...
I need to go hunt for our Fall Stuff and see what needs some rejuvenating.
Thanks for getting me inspired, Beth

I love the fact that you change your framed photographs seasonally! I've got a great one of the kids playing in the leaves last year. I'm off to go display it!

You know, I've been thinking my lamps needed some fall bling, too. I was leaning towards something like a tassel, but I love the ribbon garland. Looks so pretty.

Looking forward to meeting Bob! :)

Oh, I just LOVE the lampshade idea...and guess what??? I'm gonna "borrow" it for my own home! :) Great inspiration! ~Rhonda

sheila said...

okay, love the lamp garlands...that is such a new idea...I've never seen it before :)

I'd, um, "borrow, your idea but since my cats would launch themselves onto the lamps and garlands and mayhem would ensue, I'll just admire yours :)

...and love the photos...

(scarecrows kinda freak me out...like clowns...but I'll be brave & come see your next post)

duchess said...

I think the lamps look wonderful and I love that you change the photos to match the seasons.
Very nice.

Marie said...

I love your lamps! They look so pretty all gussied up for fall! :o) AND! I started putting 'summer-esque" pictures of my kids in the living room this summer... to tie into my "summer theme." Would you know it never occured to me to bring out some fall ones? lol I love that idea.
