Welcome to this week’s edition of Cottage on Bunker Hill Weekly! This is my weekly online magazine where I get to share a little behind the scenes with you, new things on the blog, great finds I have found during the week, and my favorite ideas and projects from my friends around the web.
What’s New This Week
Yes, it’s Summer and still gorgeous and warm out but I’m obsessed with all things Fall here! I’ve been working on so many Fall projects and ideas…wait until you see them all!!
One project that you will see later this week (if everything goes right!!) is a Pottery Barn dupe that I’ve been excited to try! When I first saw the PB terra cotta pumpkins in their Halloween Shop last month I knew I wanted to try a knockoff version…they are so cute but pricey! I also had a feeling they were going to be the “it” item for Halloween and Fall. Here they are:

My project was a little delayed this week, You have to see how my ceramic pumpkins arrived that I planned to transform!! So sad, as soon as I picked up the box and heard the jingle, I knew it was a pumpkin-pocalypse inside!!!!
I’m always looking for decent kitchen towels and really don’t want to spend a fortune on them. Walmart has a new line of Better Homes & Gardens towels that are super cute and of nice quality too. I loved the grain sack striped ones!! In my area, it says store pick up only on walmart.com but you can check them out for yourself online here.
I have a good dupe for you!!
There is nothing that I love more than finding a good dupe for a pricey item, it’s the best!! Let me show you what I found for half the price of the Pottery Barn version…
The Pottery Barn Burgandy Eucalyptus Bundle is $29.50 and the Target bunch is $15!! The Target eucalyptus is also preserved leaves and it’s a really big bunch…I was psyched with how full it is!! I can’t wait to pop it in a vase!!
This Week On The Blog…
Target is just killing it this Fall with all their pretty new things…and they are super affordable too! I’m all about saving a few bucks but still having a beautiful home!!
I just got the pumpkin candle, the dark rattan pumpkin, & a few of their ceramic pumpkins, and the woven corn bundle. I loved the quality of everything except the corn bundle…it’s cute but I’m not sure if it’s $15 cute.
