A thrifting adventure in Cape May and the Irish Fall Festival in Wildwood

I had a great weekend, How was yours? I hope you took it easy and enjoyed life a bit!
I found a really neat  rusty wire basket thrifting in Cape May. Only 5 bucks! I bought it home and have finally started my Fall decorating. Gotta love those dollar store pumpkins and ghourds.

I can never bring myself to do it until the actual start of Fall. I'm not one of those end of August Fall decorators. I actually enjoy the dog days of August and squeeze out the very last drop of summer here in  the Northeastern USA.

 I figure the rain, cold, snow, and wetness will be here to stay for more than long enough when it does arrive.

And a Fall garland I am working on from found acorns and twine..

You can't get much thriftier than free.

 My chippy old rusty, vintage wall pocket, will get some new pumpkin colored mums too.

When is it that you begin your Fall decorating?

There is a big Fall festival every year at this time to celebrate the arrival of Fall down in North Wildwood NJ. 
It can get a bit crazy but is always fun


And this festival is what always gets me started with the Fall decor... And my absolute favorite has to be the 2 little white pumpkins!

 I picked them up from the dollar store. Wish they had more than 2. Just the touch the entry table needs without changing the rest of the decor.
I got lots more to do to catch up around here.  Summer straglers are coming out and Mums are going in my chippy old mexican pots,

I kinda like the fall decorating , so I will be doing a little more.

It's the winter that I don't like... not one little bit.

Have a great week ladies.

  2. Eileen, that is such a great basket, and it looks so pretty filled with Fall gourds. laurie

  3. I saw the words "Cape May" and had to stop by... I spent my summers in Cape May and mom went to HS there... such a sweet little town! If you saw the B&B "Angel of the Sea" ,, when it was one house (they cut it in two) it was were my grand parents lived many years ago!
    Thanks for sharing, made me smile!

  4. Your little white pumpkins are so fabulous! I'm jealous ;o) Nice find.

    Happy Fall to you!!!
