Fall finds. . . .

A few weeks ago I was at my sweet sisters house for dinner. She, like the rest of us is ready for fall to be here. So much so that she had already brought out some of her fall decor. Before I left her house, she gave me some of the fall foliage and ribbon that she was not going to use, see I told you she was sweet.

 About a week ago I found these cute guys at Walgreens for just $1 each. As I was paying for them, the cashier says to me, "this guy is kinda of ugly" talking about the scarecrow. My response to her was, "Well I think he is cute."  to which she just made a gruff sound and continued to frown. She is an older lady and kind of grumpy ): maybe it was just to early for her, after all I was there just before 8 a.m. after taking my kids to school.

Then last week while I was out doing a little shopping, I got these cute pumpkins from Belk's.
 When I saw them, I knew that they would be perfect on my mantle. Then I looked at the price, they were $20 each. So as I started to walk away, I saw the sign. 50% off, then along with that I also had a coupon for 10% off my purchase. So I ended up paying less than $20 for both of them.

Speaking of coupons, I also had a coupon for Yankee Candle where I could buy any regularly priced large jar candle and get another one FREE! I got the Pumpkin Buttercream and it smells so good. I also got the Home For The Holidays candle.
I am so ready for fall to be here. I just love the cooler weather and really just everything that fall brings with it.
