Fall fun weekend

This weekend was one of the first weekends that really felt like fall, 70's cool and breezy, perfect weather! The family and I went to the pumpkin patch and found some neat pumpkins. I love looking through all the different pumpkins, so many shapes, sizes and colors! I could just keep picking them...but then I would go home broke.
There was this huge tree with rocking chairs and a swing under it, I could have sat there for hours. Perfect day.

After the pumpkin patch we headed to an antique mall. I found some pieces that I decided to bring on home with me!  Here are some of the things that I got.

 My hubby found this clock...$10.00! I couldn't belive it was so cheep! Love it!

I found this burlap bag, not sure yet what I will use it for but $6 wasn't bad. I am sure I will find some project for it.

 This is a little plate saucer, that was $3.00.  I really liked the picture on it. 

I saw this picture and really liked the color in the tree. It reminds me of the New England states in the fall. So for $6.00 it was coming home with me.
Lastly is the cheese board and cloche. I painted it as soon as I got home. I did one coat of Old White and then I mixed some old white with my chalk board paint and did a coat of that. Sanded it down and that was that. I like the color it turned out. Might have to use it on something else as well!

Well that was what I did this weekend. I used some of my new things to do some fall decorating. I will post about that in a little bit.
Hope ya'll are having a good week!
