Instagram is almost like a blog onto it’s own. It is so easy to keep in my groove and share pics here and there…..I am an insta-lover fo sur:) Last weekend I pulled out some fall decorations (from the depth of the boxes in my basement….that’s another show for another day.) I can’t find some of my things that I used last year….but I got my hands on most of my favorite things. It is a fun challenge to fit our old decorations into a new space….I had fun putting it all together. I thought I would share with you here in case you aren’t on instagram. FYI: I didn’t buy one new thing that you see in these pics….just shopped the house and got stuff from my fall boxes:)

I used the same wreath from a few years ago. It has held up great! Find out how to make your own super large wreath for little cash here….I placed that on the door using my secret invisible door hanger. An upside down command hook on the inside of the door…wrapped some floral wire around it and hung the wreath on the outside. Easy!!

I lied….I did buy one thing. This plum sprig was on sale at Potterybarn and I knew it would look fabulous in my white pitcher. Just one sprig is all I needed….I love the how it looks against the wall. The old iron gate piece has been used several times before…. (check here) I found it years ago at Architectural Salvage. The wheat wreath was from Michael’s a few years back….
