Thinking ahead to Fall!

Today, I was out running errands and came across a yard sale. Woot Woot.  My first yard sale in over 2 years!!! When we lived in Cranberry Twp. there were community yard sales every week from May to August!
I had to turn around and go check it out. She had some really nice things, but this lantern caught my eye and for only $4. I wasn’t sure what or where I was going to use it, but I never pass up a bargain.

I have this timer candle that I bought at JoAnn Fabrics a couple years ago with a 60% off coupon.  It’s a large one and I haven’t seen any this size since then.  It has the fake flame that moves around that makes it look so real..and I do love the timer that comes on for about 6 hrs.  I had it in a vintage chicken waterer that I bought several years ago at an Antique Mall..for only $12.

So the candle went into the lantern, now what do I put in the chicken waterer?  Then I remembered some dried corn my hubby keeps in the shed for the squirrels and chipmunks.  I did see a Pinterest photo of corn in a large glass gallon jar, so that was my inspiration.  I put some rose hips in the bottom.
I’ve had this rusty star garland for years…it was a yard sale find too.

I found this red mason jar at Goodwill for 99 cents and the flowers are from the Dollar Tree!
They have these cute sprays with cotton balls and feathers!

I’m not trying to rush the season, but one thing just led to another…but you have to agree sunflowers are used for August decorating!   ??

Oh, and I also bought these witches shoes for $1.  They are so cute!

Hope you are inspired to be looking for thrift store or yard sale items!

Looking forward to fall ?? and everything pumpkin! ?
