Decorating for Fall, Guest Blogger Post


Happy Autumn! I would love to show you how I decorate for Fall with some of my favorite flea market finds!

Pumpkins certainly have a place when it comes to Fall decorating, but you can achieve a beautiful look spending no money at all by just gathering up a few key flea market treasures from around your home.

Bits of nature from your own yard complete the look. Here's what I did...


This old, rusty birdcage is one of my very favorite flea market finds...with candles placed inside it, it makes the perfect centerpiece.

I have a collection of petite white pitchers which I love to use both on their own and filled with flowers. As the garden begins to slow down in the Fall, and flowers are not as abundant, these darling pitchers are perfect for holding small bunches of whatever you still have blooming and readily available...


And don't forget those wonderful vintage books you can scoop up at any flea market for a bargain...they come in handy in so many decorating situations. Their aged and weathered appearance add beauty to any vignette...



So hit the backyard and then gather up your favorite flea market treasures and create a fresh seasonal look that works for your own home! Happy decorating!!

I'm a big fan of Tracey so glad to find her fall decor here. Which is absolutely stunning and especially coz of the variety of colors. Not just orange pumpkin.

J'adore everything about it.

Beautiful, as always.

It's easy purchasing decorations. The challenge is taking what you have around the house, adding a little mother nature to come up with a really unique table scape.

Those of us who are in danger of hoarding..should find it easy to find stuff. It is the "putting together" that is a little more tricky.

Thanks for the inspiration, because that is where I find difficulty.

Collecting is the easy part, remembering where you put it and doing it are the hard parts!
