Too Early To Decorate For Fall??

Hi Everyone!

Just a couple of quick things I wanted to share.

1st off, yesterday I was looking through a cabinet and found I sack I stuck in there last year and had forgotten about it.

Do you ever do this…

Buy a seasonal item on clearance after you have already packed up your decorations, so you just stick it somewhere??

How many of you forget that you did it, then are so excited to come across it later??

That is how I am.

When I found a sack of bittersweet twigs and garland I was so excited.

Eeek! I forgot about this!!! :)

I have been wanting to start on some fall inside decorating but kept telling myself it was too early.

When I found this sack, I thought…

Oh, What the heck!! LOL!!

So I did a little Fall tweaking in my kitchen.

I went and got a few more Fall things and set up these little displays on my sink and stove.

This is on my stove board…

I couldn’t decide which one I liked better.


Here is what I put on my sink board.

While you are here I also wanted to show off my wonderful win from Sandy @ Olde Country Cupboard.

I recently was one of her lucky winners and my prize was this adorable Prim Christmas Journal.

Tammy looks great, makes me want to go dig all my fall things out. The colors of fall are so pretty.

Hi, Tammy ~ it's your home so you can put up fall when you want, right? That's what I always figure. I've been working on lots of new prims for fall & it is sure has me in the mood. It's hard for me to put them in the craft room when they are finished. I will probably bring out some things toward the end of the month. Have a great weekend.

I am so ready for Fall or at least the fall temps, I just can't stand it.

Finding lost packages is like giving yourself a little gift. Especially if the receipt isn't in the bag! LOL Stay cool!

Love your "fall decorating"! I can't wait either, I so love to decorate for fall. It's such a long season and so many varieties of themes. And of course the COLORS - love the colors of Autumn. It is looking very nice around your home. Congrats on what you have won. Don't forget to hop on over to my blog and enter to win the Santa. Blessings ~Sara

Great display. I love fall and all it's color and decor.....but we have barely had any summer here yet so I can't bring myself to Fall thoughts just yet.

Hi there~ I do that all the time, drives me crazy when I find something after the holiday is over, but then it is a nice surprise for the next year I guess. I am ready for fall decor, I am trying to hold off until September..but who says right? :)

Dawn Buie said...

I love when we find things that we put away and forgot about .. You know what though I think we find them at the right times! I love your pumpkins and how you have them on display!

Ann said...

hi Tam, What a funny question! It's never to early to start fall decorating . I left my pumpkin & tree that I bought from Wanda at Gatherings out and i got them near the beginning of July! Love your new decorations - and yes, I too love it when I buy something and put it away and discover it the next year. ~Ann

Penny said...

Yes, I am always sticking things away -- and then totally forgetting about them! Sometimes they're found in time for the season -- sometimes they stay hidden for a couple of years!!

Am getting ready to move soon, so I should be finding treasures here and there as I go through closets/cabinets/drawers!!

Felicia said...

Love your fall decorating Tammy, it's very pretty. I like to use bittersweet too. I still have some in one of my basket's from last year yet.

Hi Tammy,

Glad to know I am not the only one who finds "packages" from a season or two ago. It is like going shopping without leaving the house.

Would love to know where to find some bittersweet like that??

Seems like fall is in the air everywhere. I love the acorns as a bowl filler. What a great surprise to find. p.s.- I love those bears. They have such personality. Good Job. -Steph-

I love the fat pumpkin in the bowl. If it would make it feel like Fall, I would be decorating, big time! It was 116 degrees today! October is looking pretty good, right now!

Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

I like to wait until there is a chill in the air, but I must confess, I have been in the mood for orange berries and harvest type crafts!

Lynn said...

Hi Tammy,
I love your fall decorations. I am also in love with your stove board and your sink board. I am going to try to talk my hubby into making those for my kitchen. I have also been enjoying the pictures of your home on Prim Pals. Your home is simply beautiful.

I truly try to make myself wait until after Labor Day...cuz this crow needs rules or it'd be Halloween year round....But I do have a few things here and there that I've picked up and it's so not worth putting them away for a month - or stashing them and running the risk of forgetting about this for a year or more! ;o) Speaking of which....I think I have some acorns I stashed a couple of seasons ago...better go on a treasure hunt!! Love your journal from Sandy - I was lucky enough to win one too and will post it soon hopefully!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
