Decking the Halls with Fall Ya'll

Wow, someone's been busy getting ready for Open House, counting down the days until Saturday, October 4th. Look at all these great fall pieces, perfect to dress your favorite rooms for the holidays ahead.

This beautiful arrangement would be perfect to fill the front of a fireplace while the weather is still on the warm side.

Old mantels have so many uses and can actually give you the feel of a real fireplace. Just add a multi stand of candles or old gas heater.

While all of these pieces are inviting, I just love the rusted candle holder at the top of the photo, it would make the ideal centerpiece over a mantel and then work your way out on either side with great fall finds. It could even be attached to an old shutter or architectural piece first to give it more depth.

A great idea for your front porch to welcome guests
Lots of Pumpkins

Scented candles and potpourri

This big bunch of mums look great against this old door, another great outdoor look for the fall.
Haunting displays, the old oval frame with only it's glass give a creepy ghostly appearance.

Wendy and the gang are getting the store ready for their annual Fall Open House, Saturday October 4th. She came by the Plum Tree yesterday to tell me about what they are planning and to show me some of the new things she bought. She also brought me the most beautiful gift of a bracelet from a line of jewelry she will be selling at Ms. Wendy's. This line is very one of a kind and is beautifully handcrafted, take a peek below to see some of the pieces she will be featuring.

I can tell by the photos that Wendy and her dealers have been working hard at getting the store ready for Open House so mark your calenders for Saturday, October 4th.

Handcrafted bracelets created from vintage coins and watches, all one of a kind.
