My one piece of advice about decorating living rooms is...
KEEP A FISH BOWL ON YOUR COFFEE TABLE!
It makes your living room look so good and you can change what is inside the fish bowl when ever you want. I even change my fish bowl for birthday parties!

Decorating Ideas for Fall
My Front Porch Lookin' In
Our dining room is our most used room so decorating this beautiful hutch we have in it only seems right.
I'll start at the bottom shelf.
I have this huge circle of wood that I luckly got when my boyfriend decided to make his own bathroom sink counter for our house in New Hampshire. He gave me the part he cut out and did't need for his project. Unfortunately it has drips of gloss going down the side but I don't mind, I usually have the edges covered with ribbon.
I put this great glass pumpkin and a glass letter H on top of a place mat that is the perfect size to cover enough of the wood.
I added some fake hay into these cute mini candy corn bottles I made. I have similar decor like this for sale locally so if you love them check it out here.
I love my front porch. I always try to decorate it the best I can despite it being small it always looks really cute (until my kids leave their stuff all over it)
While decorating for fall you can NEVER have enough fake leaves! I spread them all over the house. I get the kind on the vine from Dollar Tree and Walmarat has whole bags of loose ones for .97 cents
These look really cute and don't make a lot of annoying noise. They are fairly easy to make but a bit time consuming they way I make them.
I use whatever I have as far as the ring that the cans hang from. Be creative, you can use wreaths but my go to item for this is the ring inside a old lamp shade. I usually get my lamp shades at goodwill and you can find some lampshades that are crazy shapes besides just a circle. I used a square lamp shade on this wind chime.
If you love this item but just dont have the time to do it yourself I have a few of these for sale.

It's pretty basic stuff from the dollar store and goodwill but its all very cute when put together.
I filled the bottom of these hand me down vases with a mix of beans which were pretty inexpensive at Aldis, I bought a few different kinds and mixed them myself. Beans are a great thing to use during fall, I also use corn kernels as well. Plop some fake leaves inside and these were looking pretty cute.
Decorating my home for fall has got to be one of my favorite things to do! I love all the colors that come with fall and best of all... my house gets outrageously FULL of foxes! and who wouldn't love that? I got this cute fox at big lots at the end of season last year for like $3!!
There is not much to my little kitchen so this will be short and sweet.
This is the little shelf above my sink. Im not sure why I have this NEED to decorate over my sink but I do. When we moved into this house I was freaking out because there was no shelf above the sink (these are the kinds of things I freak out about) so I bought this one from Family Dollar for about $10 and it was perfect for all my little decorations.
The top shelf has this cute fence right in the middle with some old oil lamps on either side (sorry they are not in the picture, I don't know whats wrong with me or why I didn't get them in the picture) I just put a few cute things on the fence. Cool bottle, cool old candle holder and a cute picture of my kids sitting in a pile of pumpkins.
Here is another great little table I have on my porch that I aranged all this stuff on. This cool cage like thing came from Goodwill along with the really cute mini tin tub.
I added a cool looking bottle filled with corn kernels and some fake sun flowers from Dollar Tree. I filled up the bottom of the cage with white rocks (also from dollar tree) just because I felt like it needed more.
Make a Tin Can Wind Chime
A well placed place mat and doily does wonders to accent your fish bowl. I change the place mat for different holidays/ seasons.
Here's a full picture of the hutch! doesn't she look beautiful?!
The Wagon Wheel
Mason jar lights are something I love having around the house because they are so pretty all lit up (im a big fan of stuff that glows)
If you like this jar you can find one like it here.
My antique wagon wheel is seriously the pride and joy of the outside of our house. A friend of ours gave it to me and it sits perfectly in the space on our porch between the house and the porch rails.
I wrapped my wheel in white Christmas lights (because I love the way white Christmas lights look at night even when it's not Christmas)
Over the lights I wrapped some fall leaf garland, of which I did not have enough of this year (it was used on something else and never got replaced) but I decorated very late this year so I just added a pumpkin to the mix and called it a day.
I am a big fan of using large glass containers in my decorating. It makes everything so much easier because I just change them out for each holiday or season and this makes dollar store items look like so much more. I am constantly looking for different looking ones at goodwill. sometimes you can find them there for like $2!
I filled the bottom of the containers with the mix of beans from Aldis and added a few cute things in.
I think corn stalks on front porches look amazing. I attempted to grow corn this year in our garden until it died.... BUT on the bright side I got a few free bushels of corn stalks out of the deal so that's good.
Mine are not as good as the ones you buy from a farm stand but they were free, I grew them, they are great in my book.
I have no idea where this guy came from, maybe he was my mother in laws... I'm not sure but regardless I think hes adorable. I absolutely LOVE old, kinda ugly, very 80's retro stuff like this.
Just remember if you come across a great old wreath like this in good condition take it home, clean it up and love it... I think hes great, some of my friends will say otherwise (it's fine, they don't know anything)
The pumpkins are real. I bought them in a huge bag at BJ's with all different kinds of pumpkins in it. It was a pretty good deal. Only about $6 for the whole huge bag.
If you find yourself in the position I am in with limited space you need to use the space you have to its fullest potential.
I have a small pallet table in the corner of my porch where I have stacked planters with a few small plants in them. I only plant a few small plants in each pot so I have room to but a few cute things into them. Doing this really stretches a small amount of decorations into something much bigger and noticeable.
Most of this stuff was bought at goodwill, the Dollar store, or was a Nanny hand me down. It doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg to have a adorable house!
The Living room
I filled my fish bowl for fall with a small candle and a mix of pine cones, fake gourds and fake leaves.
Very inexpensive and easy to put together and it makes your living room look great.
