Every year I buy a little something here and a little something there and add it to my fall decoration box. I’m building my supply selection very slowly, but also very cost effectively. Neither do I spend a large amount of money all at once, nor do I buy things that I don’t like or won’t use because I’m being very selective with what I purchase.

My favorite place to look is the DOLLAR GENERAL. It’s true.

Last year I bought several spools of fall-colored cloth ribbon on clearance at the end of the fall season. This year I scored a couple of $1 packages of shimmery silk leaves in a variety of fall colors from olive green to gold to eggplant to deep red. The leaves were just what I needed to make-over my dollar store wall art! (I’ll show you later.)

Other things I scored at the DG this year:

  • A little pumpkin about 6 inches tall that says “Give thanks to God”
  • A free-standing 4 inch ‘plate’ that reads “Welcome Fall” (Yes! Welcome! Please come in!!)
  • A cute little cornucopia (you could see that in my first day of school pics)
  • A little package of pumpkins and squash – little ones, 2-3 inches in diameter, so cute.

I’ve just started getting things decorated but it’s already starting to look a little bit like fall around here. Now if it would only start FEELING like fall as well! 😉

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
