Small fall changes

I said I would probably end up changing some stuff in my fall decor...and I did. I was in Walmart today and saw some really nice flower bushels for $5.00. I love fresh flowers so I picked some up and decided to use them with my new glass jar from the flea market. I like this arrangement much better for the dinning room table....what do you think? Which one looks better?

I used a scrap piece of muslin fabric I had to place it all on.

I LOVE favorite!  Not bad for $5.00

My dinning room from the back door. It's an open kitchen dinning area.

I made this little arrangement with the old apple picking crate I got. I think this will find it's way outside soon.

 This is a small arrangement I made on the kitchen counter. I filled my ironstone tureen with some pine cones and acorns. I put out my sunflower plate and a ceramic pumpkin.

We'll see if I change anything else later on...I'll let ya know if I do! 



  1. I love walmart flowers!!! I picked up 2 bunches of sunflowers last week too. Your dining room is gorgeous, I can't wait to see more of your blog!

  2. I'm such a dork I meant more of your posts....
    in a sense I guess thats the same thing. :)

    have a good night!

  3. Hi Rachel,
    I like the changes! The Sunflowers are a wonderful pop of yellow. Your apple crate is such a fun universal piece. You asked about my spiders on my pumpkins. It is a meshy garland I bought 4 or 5 years ago at Interior Elements. All of the Utah stores have gone out of business. Have a nice day tomorrow.

  4. I love sunflowers! I just planted a bunch in my raised garden. I like the blue vase on the table.
    You have a beautiful home Rachel!
    Enjoy your day~Sue

  5. Hi Rachel,

    I can't make a choice, I like this one too! I Love that oval chalkboard in the background, very nice... Your fall decor is beautiful!
    Have a great day!
    All the Best,

  6. ¡Hola guapa!, las flores muy bonitas, me gusta la decoración.
    feliz semana.

  7. Hi Rachel,
    We didn't add the knobs. After we moved in maintenance came through adding them to everyone's kitchens. Our homes are or were brand new 4 years ago. The only room we have painted is my daughter's room.
    I'm too scared to paint now, I just know if I do it we'll get orders. LOL

    Have a good night!

  8. I love your vignettes. The apple crate is my favorite, I love the old things like that.
    Love the fresh flowers on your table, too!


  9. Those flowers are so pretty and you did a great job arranging them. I love sunflowers, my Dad was in the army for 20 years, we travelled the world, I have 4 kids, I love the fall, I love you know anyone who has these things in common? lol I came through your comment and read your profile and the only difference is I DO like to wear red lol. So glad you found me so that I could find you! Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my bench swing. I am following you now too.


  10. I guess I should clarify...I came through your comment through blogger to your profile..does that make sense? I'm tired...

  11. Michele, thanks for your nice comment about the dining room :) I guess it's the same thing too lol

    Sue thank you for your sweet comment :) Is this the time of year to plant sunflowers? I have always wanted to but am afraid they would die.

    @ Ricardo,gracias por tu comentario amable.

    Thanks Jessica :)

  12. Love your dining room wall with the "Bon Appetit" on the wall......I have that over a doorway in my home too. Thx for stopping by my blog......I am now a new follwer of yours too. If you are ever up in the Atlanta area, pls stop in and say "hi" at the store.

  13. @ Lynn, thanks for your comment, My hubby put the sign up for me, I think he did a pretty good job ;) We love to take day trips up to Atlanta, I will pop in and say hi one of those times :) Thanks for becoming a follower as well!

  19. @ Michele, That's nice that they added them. I wish I could add some. I know what you mean, the longer we live here the more hesitant I feel about painting anything else. That's nice that your homes are pretty new and they are made of brick. Ours are new but they are siding. I really like brick!
