Welcome to Seasonal Sundays. I imagine that you, like me, probably have a ton of Fall décor, but I’m always looking for a way to spruce up what I have and give it a new look. I don’t want to go out and buy a ton of new things, just a couple of touches here and there. Well, this season’s fav theme has to be OWLS. I’ve seen them everywhere and decided they were clearly the addition I needed to kick my Fall decorations up a notch.
I found this little guy at Target this summer in the $2.50 section. What ever happened to the Dollar section?
I filled him with some fresh potpourri and placed him in my entryway.
I’m so happy that Trader Joe’s opened near my home. They have great prices on plants. This orchid, for $12.99, helped bring my entryway to Fall. If you’re looking for more ideas, HERE is last year’s entryway arrangement. This year’s is a bit more casual.
Did you see the touch of my helper, Baci, in the prior photo? She’s one of our two Bedlington Terriers.
This guy flew in from The Christmas Tree Shop (could not resist at $9.99). He’s welcoming you before you even get in the door. Right now he’s flying solo, but as it begins to feel a bit more like autumn, pumpkins and gourds will surround him.
This fellow is a lot bigger than he looks – a healthy 10 inches. I’m not exactly sure where he’s going to nest, but I’m sure it will be with some mercury glass pumpkins.
Love this little pitcher also found at The Christmas Tree Shop. I’m in the midst of conjuring up what tablescape he will land on.
How cute are these little friends found at Pier One? They were $5. for the pair and then on sale for I think $4. And they will no doubt find themselves in a tablescape as well.
But perhaps my favorite is this vintage owl, unearthed from my Mom’s decos of the 60s. Yes, owls were big back then too! Loving him in my dining room! You can see more of the dining room HERE.
Looking forward to seeing how you’re readying your home for the Fall. Have you made any new purchases. I hadn’t realized just how many owls I had purchased until I started putting this post together. Hmmm…hope I didn’t over do it. They are all so different. I think once they are scattered about my home, they will nest in perfectly.
