Decorating Delimma

100_2029 100_2031 All of the fall decorating items have been brought in...have started and completed some vignettes...well, I may do some more tweaking as time goes on.

However, as you can tell from these two pictures...things are not a stand still for the mantel. I have stuff there...not real pleased...don't know what I want...just sort of stumped at this time. Don't want to spend anymore money on "stuff". Perhaps I will get an inspiration as time goes on.

Did find the crows I wanted at Dollar Tree this morning. I want to suspend them above my scarecrows. Now as to how I am going to pull this off...time will tell.

I had better get myself in gear and finish off this mad woman Pottery Barn copycat... now who am I kidding...all of these arrangements will definitely be "Amelia Originals"... but first, a nap.zzzzzzzz.

I seem to just keep putting things here and there till finally I like how it looks. I can't wait to see your Amelia Originals!!!!!

Marilyn said...

I can't wait to see it when you get it all done. It will be beautiful. You'll figure out those crows.

Such pretty colors. :)

And I'm so sleepy I can't keep my eyes open. (It's only 10:43 a.m. here.)


Stacey said...

I bet it will all be adorable. I like the pieces you've collected to put together.

Hazel said...

I still like that white pumpkin ,how ever you arrange it , it will be beautiful as always .

Jen said...

You're pretty darn I know it will be pleasing to the eye. Hope your nap was good. ;)

I love all your "stuff" and you have arranged the coffee table perfectly! for the mantle, just go into your fabric stash, pick out a nice one, drape the mantle and build from there, put boxes or upside down bowls to prop some thngs higher...and viola, you're done!

Michelle said...

Whatever you come up with , it will be beautiful. Good start!
be blessed,

It is so hard to get things to look the way you want them. I am always changing something. The mantel is a hard spot for me to figure out. Good luck on doing the framed pumpkin! I just cut it in half and hot glued it to scrapbook paper in a frame. I left the glass out. Sooooo easy!

"Amelia's Style" is Fabulous! :) I have the problem this year of trying to put out too much. I have the things from last year, and have gotten new ideas from blogland I want to try, but I'm afraid I'm getting too "fall cluttered" fast! LOL! Oh me! :)

Can't wait to see what you do with your crows and I hope you'll post pics of your other fall vignettes soon! Hope you have a great weekend! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

PS..I still like the white pumpkins too! I put them out, right or wrong! LOL!

I'll be anxious to see the finished project too.
I wish I were more creative. If I did something like this everyone would SO know I put it together. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always nice to meet a new blogger and very nice to meet another Oklahoman!

Have a great day,

I also put out a few things this morning. I love the base for a candle, and then add the decorations you pictured...crows would go fine too!

I am sure you will play with it until you get it right. Love the colors and pieces you have chosen so far though. I am constantly moving things around.
