Fall Bargains

I've really been wanting a fall flag for the front yard. I finally made a trip to AC Moore and found this one on sale, of course. I like the colors and the cardinal, the state bird of Virginia. It won't stay up for long before I replace it with my VT flag.

These came from a yard sale a few weeks ago. The two of them together were only a quarter. They look a bit ragged, but I think that just adds to their charm.

Both of these tablets were just a dollar each at Joanns. Since I still don't know how to use my Cricut, I bought these with the idea of using them to make a banner. If that doesn't happen, I'll just write my dear hubby notes on them. hehehe

I need to get my Halloween tote out of the attic so I can start decorating. It's just been so hot around here that I haven't felt like fall was on its way at all. Now that football season has started, perhaps I can get in the fall spirit. (I did pack up my beach decorations last week.)

What fall bargains have you found?

I have noticed that lots of my American friends are getting really excited about the arrival of Autumn (Fall) and the cooler weather. I suppose it's because it's been SO hot over there for you this year. Here in England, we can't believe that it's almost Autumn already, because we've hardly had any summer! :(

Oh, the candy corn is adorable. I'm sure you can turn that into a garland, even if you have to put some lightweight cardboard on the back to make it more firm. Looks like you'll have a very decorated home this season.

Last week, I kind of went crazy at Hobby Lobby and Michael's buying florals and some wood things to paint for fall, Thanksgiving, and Halloween.

Thanks for visitng my blog today!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't know how to operate a Cricut. Of course that might be partly due to the fact that I don't OWN a Cricut. But if/when I do, I don't know if I'll be able to operate such a complicated device. I've never even sent a text... EVER! Yes, I'm that awesome.

Love your finds. Can't wait to see more.
