What’s New This Week
I just love a bargain!! This week I found dupes for a few of the most popular Fall decor items from my favorite high-end catalog retailers. You won’t believe how close my budget finds are to the pricey ones!!

High/Low FALL FINDS
I have wanted to copycat the Pottery Barn terracotta pumpkins from the moment I laid eyes on them at the end of July! At the time I couldn’t find any pumpkins anywhere online to make them…but I just had a feeling they were going to be super popular for Fall. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m in love with my little cuties!
They were pretty easy to make too and I’ve seen pumpkins in all the stores now that you could use to make them.
Trending This Week
Not only is this garland beautiful and full of natural goodness…it’s pretty quick to put together! I used a magnolia garland as a base, then added fresh eucalyptus (you could totally use artificial!), dried hydrangeas, and some pretty dried orange picks from Michael’s. Perfect for a little extra pretty over a kitchen window or across the top of a mirror.
As much as I love the coastal touches and brighter colors of fresh flowers that I have in my home all Summer long as soon as I spot that first maple tree with its leaves starting to turn orange I’m ready to bring a little bit of cozy into our home!! I shared all my favorite ways to get your home ready for Fall.
Everyone must be in the baking mood while the fresh blueberries are still around! For my New England readers, remember the famous blueberry muffins sold at the bakeries at Jordan Marsh Department Stores…this recipe will take you back! For the rest of you, they are just yummy blueberry muffins!!
