the weather is HOT but it is fall around here...


I am definetely ready for some cooler weather...amen?! So, I thought if I started putting out my fall decorations, it might encourage some cooler weather! I love love living in Florida, but one thing I wish we had were four seasons, leaves changing & crisp air. Anyway...here are some pictures of what I have done around here to make it fall-like at our house. These frames had old pictures in them that I didn't like anymore, so I took the glass and picture out and painted the frames with some leftover acrylic paint I had laying around. The big one is a brown/bronze color and the middle one took about 5 colors to get it right!
This idea I absolutely LOVE but cannot take ownership for at all! I got the idea from The Joys of Home blog. The black berries wreaths are from the dollar store and started out as Christmas wreaths until I gave them a few sprays of black spray paint to give them a spooky look for Halloween.
The frame is from the dollar store as well...that's right...$1.00!!! I was supposed to print out the "BOO" letters but my printer ran out of black ink today and you know me...I couldn't wait. So, I just got out my paint pens and printed the letters myself.

You have an absolutely gorgeous front door(s)!!! And the fall decor makes it look spectacular!
I love the way your candle rings and BOO look. You did a great job printing it by hand. Love it!
I'm a big fan of empty frames too. Thanks for inviting me over to come see.

Very cute decorations! I like the frames and think that the boo turned out cute handmade. I went to the dollar store this weekend and came up empty handed on the frames. Guess I should shop my house and see if I can find something that would work.

What fun decorations. I know how you feel about really wanting the cooler weather. I started decorating for fall, and it did get cooler here. I think if you decorate like it, it will come.
