fall inspiration...

I've been so inspired by all the wonderful fall goodness I've been seeing lately...


And since some of you thought I was rushing Christmas a bit...


I started pulling out the fall things I purchased last year at Michael's after season sale at 70% off.  I usually hate to store things a full year but at such a great discount it's hard to resist.


I found a couple of new things at 50% off to add to the pile.
Just seeing it all gathered together really gets the creative juices flowing...


Wait till you see what I have planned for these three tiered pumpkins...


And these twig pumpkins and berry sprigs...


I did splurge on this Graphic 45 - Halloween in Wonderland - paper...

Isn't it scrumptious...



I just love these paper mache stars I covered in scrapbook paper and distressed...


Oh...the possibilities are endless!


Are you inspired yet?

Happy Creating,
Patty

You got some great things on sale. That is wonderful!!! Seeing all your stuff makes me want to get all my fall things out. I love decorating for fall. And I really enjoy fall baking too. Love & blessings from NC!

Boy you do have some nice fall things! I love to decorate for fall. I'm still not feeling it because of the heat I guess, but when I do, I really get excited!

Look at all that yumminess. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I want to start some too and have been waiting for it to cool down some so it feels more like fall and this week has been a little cooler and less humidity. Thanks for always leaving sweet comments I do appreciate them. Christine is a special needs teacher. She and my daughter had thought about going into party planning together in the past, but I guess it got put aside.

I'm feeling very inspired after seeing all of your fall treasures. Don't you just love rediscovering what you bought last year. I know you will have fun being creative and I look forward to seeing your creations.

Look at all that great stuff! That's the way to shop!

It's still way too hot and humid for me to think about fall other than to wish it was fall!

You hit the jackpot at Michaels. I love that store and Hobby Lobby. And Joann's and Barnes and Nobel. Guess that makes 4 instead of just 2 stores.

I can't wait to see what you create with your goodies. I don't have much of a creative gene so I am normally found borrowing an idea from someone else.

Take care-
Cindy

Wow. You did some serious damage at Michael's last year! Can't wait to see what you do with everything.

Diane said...

Wonderful goodies...not only am I inspired by it all...I am jealous...I want it...LOL...but really can't wait to see what you do with it all, my "stuff" is coming out this weekend, my sister and I are doing a craft show in my home on the 25th of Sept, so then it will all have to be put away, but then I can clean and focus on Halloween...wow it sure sneaks up fast!!

NanaDiana said...

Wow! What a treasure trove of goodies! I love those beautiful Fall things. It makes me anxious to get my stuff out and...I'm waiting! I always make myself wait until after Labor Day...even though it sometimes feels Fallish long before that in this area.

I LOVE the scrapbooking paper. That is one road I have never taken-scrapbooking that is! I am afraid that it would be highly addictive for me....and I don't think I can afford one more hobby! lol

Oh- And I LOVE those twig pumpkins! Diana
