Window Shopping Wednesday ~ Pumpkins With A Twist

It’s a brand new day and another Window Shopping Wednesday! Yesterday, I actually went out shopping for fabric. I’ve gotten a wild hair and decided to make some changes to my bedroom. Anyways…no luck with the fabric…but I did find my inspiration for WSW!

As you know, Hancock Fabrics has all your sewing needs plus a bit of home decor. They always have a good selection of seasonal decor too. Another good thing about Hancock Fabrics is that most of the time, it’s on sale. Yesterday, all the seasonal decor was 30% off.

One thing that I’ve noticed this year is the trend of the non-traditional pumpkin. I use these unique pumpkin baskets every year. Gone are the days of the fake plastic pumpkin! Embrace the pumpkin of many textures…Look at the great pattern found on the green one on the left! The multitude of textures found in these raffia pumpkins are awesome! Texture is very important in your decor. It brings interest into your space.

They range in price from $9.99 to $24.99, based on size, but don’t forget that they were 30% off!

The raffia pumpkins are definitely nontraditional. I love the rich colors! The deep, warm tones will give your fall decor a new, updated look. They would look beautiful with navy, yellow, or even red. Think about your home decor and choose Fall items that will give you the look you want, to express the season, but will also complement your existing decor. Sometimes, orange is not the answer.

Greenery is always welcome! I love the size and shape of this topiary. It is $39.99. The good thing about this piece is that you can use it for your Fall decor and then use it the rest of the year! This would look awesome amid some baskets filled with pumpkins and gourds.

Here are a couple of other topiary that include some pinecones and green apples. They are not my favorite, but could work in the right setting. Check out the pumpkins make of twigs! Personally, I don’t care for the glitter on top, but the fact that it’s made from twigs is really cool.

Another trend that is hot right now…burlap! The burlap pumpkins below can give your home a classic Fall look, with the update of the burlap. They provide a more “country” look, but I don’t think you need to only have that style in your home to be able to use them. The detail is excellent. They also range in price from $9.99 to $24.99.

Okay…these next guys are not pumpkins, but they are cute! Aren’t they awesome? Owls are everywhere! They are entirely made from twigs, leaves and other natural materials.  Their eyes are very interesting. I’m not 100% sure, but I think they were around $12.99 each. (Sorry, but I can’t remember.) These owls could be used for Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving!

I encourage you to take advantage of the current trends and use some of this new, unique Fall decor in your home. Some of it could make for some great DIYs! Check out Google and Pinterest…there are some great ideas and tutorials out there! If you’d rather not DIY, head to Hancock Fabrics. They have some great Fall decor that will fit your decorating needs, at a good price!

Window Shopping Wednesday! IKEA Style!!

I’ve gotta say it…I love IKEA! I do not get to go there often, so when I do…I love it!

This past weekend, my son moved into his dorm at college. While I hate to see him go, I couldn’t help but be a little giddy, because there’s an IKEA just a few miles away! So as soon as we had him settled, off I went! I emerged about 2 1/2 hours later…

Window Shopping Wednesday

It’s Window Shopping Wednesday once more and this week I paid a visit to my local Pier1.

The one thing I love about Pier1 is the abundance of color that embraces you as you walk through the door! If you do not like color, then you are definitely in the wrong place.

One specific trend caught my eye…a trend that we’ve all seen a lot of lately. Since it’s been so popular, I thought I’d give you Pier1’s take on it!

“Window Shopping Wednesday” Begins!

Ok, so today I had an epiphany while wandering around HomeGoods. I was returning the glass bowls (that did not get the most votes)…and not needing to spend any more money, I decided to do a “walk through”…you know…just to see if I stumble across anything that I MUST have…

Then it dawned on me!…I should do this weekly! (I really don’t need another reason to shop, but…oh well!)

So “Window Shopping Wednesday” has begun!! Every Wednesday, I will highlight products that I’ve discovered that week. I’ll let you know colors, prices and where to get them. We’ll also discuss where and how you can use them.

I know today is officially Thursday, but “Window Shopping Thursday” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue!

Let’s get started…

While in HomeGoods, my wandering eyes discovered an unusually large selection of chairs. Big chairs, little chairs, cushy chairs, stiff chairs, ugly chairs and pretty chairs.

Here are my picks…
