I didn't buy or make a single new thing- I just opened up the storage tub from previous years and put out the things that I still like and still look fresh. (Some stuff from the tub went in the trash)
The patchwork pumpkins wall hanging was sewn by my mom.
This is our first year to own the hutch_we found it at our favorite thrift store this year and it was fun to decorate.
I have a really nice Thankful banner made by Debby and will put it on the mantle when it gets closer to Thanksgiving.
I like to have seasonal things out, I think they make a room look more cheerful. But I am just not going to do anything elaborate, I've decided everything for a holiday needs to be easy to put out and it all needs to store away in a single storage tub.
