Fall Finds...And Share Your Creations Party Tomorrow!

I have been shopping for fall items over the last few weeks. Hobby Lobby has the cutest items and best prices...when they are on sale. I do not buy ANYTHING unless it's on sale! They had alot of fall 40 and 50% off last week. This week their add does not include alot of fall. Although... wood, polyresin, pottery, glass and ceramics are on sale and that does include fall! You have to watch for that. Sometimes there are no signs above the seasonal items. I hope you all have a Hobby Lobby where you are...I don't know what I would do without it!




Here are some items I bought at Hobby Lobby last week. I am going to decorate the iron shelf on the patio this year, so I thought the cute scarecrow, birdhouse, and Harvest sign would be cute out there with some real pumpkins. Not sure where the candle holders and ceramic pumpkins will go yet, either in the kitchen or living room...I'll just have to play with them. I am also going to do my mantle...I am actually going to attempt an oil painting of fall trees. I did say attempt, I haven't painted in a long time...if it turns out bad, I'll have to think of something else. I will also be making myself a pumpkin arrangement and some other things to set around. Fall is definitely on my brain!





Just a reminder that my first "Share Your Creations" party is tomorrow. I will have the linky tool up tonight. I hope you will join in! You can link any creations you would like to share. It can be an item, a room you have created, a piece of furniture you have painted, jewelry...etc. It's wide open! If you are sharing an item you have listed on Etsy you are welcome to add your link!

Cute stuff! I just went to the Hobby Lobby in Little Rock yesterday and they did not have the things you purchased! :( I guess that means I have to go again next week! Poor me!

Hobby Lobby is my favorite for buying not only craft items but seasonal items too. I worked in the fabric department for a year as department manager and all the girls would bring clearenced items to me before putting them on the shelf. I would have quit a collection at times. Daughter kept telling me I should work for a pay check not crat items and quilting material.
