More Free Fall for Ya'll

Today turned out to be a most beautiful fall day.   We probably won't have many more of those in our neck of the woods.   The sunshine was gorgeous!   That's what gave me the idea to snap a few more pictures of my fall decorations. 

I don't go overboard in decorating for fall, but I do like for the house to be warm, cozy and inviting in the fall.

As you can see in the pictures below,  I like to use natural things and things that I dont have to store away come the last of November and the first of December.  It makes getting ready for Christmas so much easier.   Most of all I like to decorate with free stuff;  things I already have or, like I said, natural elements from the yard.

Anyway, here's a few fall vignettes I hope you enjoy.

These green things grow in abundance on some trees that line our church driveway.  I ddon't know what they're called.  I think I heard someone actually call them some kind of an orange???  I don't know?   
My husband is not too fond of them because of the mess they make when 
cars drive over them and smash them.  I only like them because they're cool to decorate with and, you got it, they're free!
This wowonderful plaid tote was given to me for speaking at a ladies retreat last
weekend.  What a nice gift!  I love it!  I just tied a animal print scarf around the handle.  I read of ths trend (plaid and animal print together) for fashion, so I thought it would work in decorating as well!

A plaque given to me by my daughter A few years ago that I like to use in the
fall and some gourds.  This is in the hutch.
