you remember my dollar store spring vignette? Well, of course I had to change it up a bit for fall:
october 2010 006 1


My Dollar Tree doesn’t sell this size of frame ^ anymore and I’m so sad I didn’t buy 20. I did have an extra though, so I just darkened it with some leftover stain and followed the same process of printing it out and then taking it to the copy shop to enlarge it to an 11X17. {see here}
october 2010 014 1 this is a real nest that was abandoned when all the construction was going on down in the basement. We filled it with mini pumpkins I’ve had for a few years from Target clearance. I couldn’t find any little white pumpkins for the life of me, so I spray painted some orange ones heirloom white.

the letter balls were at Michael’s in their dollar bins, pumpkins are from class field trips to the pumpkin patch, and the picture frame with my girls I got from my mom forever ago. october 2010 011 1 Happy Wednesday~

  1. Great vignette. Love your sign and the saying is wonderful. The wire stand with the pumpkins and the children's picture is fabulous. I also really like the little box with the nest and pumpkins. Just enough and not too much. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  2. I missed the whole dollar aisle at Michael's last night when I was there. I realized it after I got home and I was so made at myself. I was so consumed with the other stuff I bought and I really only went in there for one thing! I'll have to go back because I really like those letter balls you got. They have ceramic ones at Pier 1 and I think they are pretty expensive for one ball, so forget them.

  6. Me again. . . just for fun. . .

    You know the work of this poet:

    The morns are meeker than they were,
    The nuts are getting brown;
    The berry's cheek is plumper,
    The rose is out of town.

    The maple wears a gayer scarf,
    The field a scarlet gown.
    Lest I should be old-fashioned,
    I'll put a trinket on.

  15. Love the whole look! I especially like how you incorporated the nest. I love nests, but have only used them (artificial) ones in spring. Love the idea of using them with other seasons as well. Do you have to do anything to a real nest before bringing it into your home? You know, making sure it's free of any potential tiny critters??? Thanks for sharing . . . great inspiration.

  19. Looks amazing!

    I think I have the very same cake pedestal but I never use mine since I can never figure out what to do with it. Your display is perfect. You've inspired me to dig mine out and play with it. Thanks!

  20. I personally don't celebrate Halloween, but when those parts come out for Thanksgiving, I'll love it! :-) I'll be interested to see how you change it out. I love the box, too.

    I also loved your Spring vignette. Thanks for sharing how you did the printing of the sayings, too.

    And Richella--thanks for the Dickinson!

    Happy Thursday!
