Fall Decorating and Allium

Well I FINALLY got my fall decorations up so I'll share some with you today.  Here's my new/old ladder with a garland and a few other goodies.
I had these tiny, unfinished frames I bought at the thrift store. There were five per package and they were 80 cents a package so I couldn't pass them up. All I did was give them a coat of flat, black spray paint and covered the inserts with fall fabric scraps I already had.  I also had the 3-D letter stickers so those were used to spell out the word "Autumn".  I think I may keep these up for Christmas and just change out the inserts.
This is a dried Allium plant.  A friend of mine grew them this summer and was going to throw them out.  Thankfully her husband stopped her and said, "I bet Lauren would find something to do with these." -- he was SO right! This one found its way onto my ladder!
Two more of the Allium ended up in my porch display.  I just draped a piece of fall fabric I had, over the chair.  Then I added a garland, my wooden pumpkins and of course, the Allium 'skeletons'.  A potted mum replaced the Impatiens.  

Now my house is beginning to match up with the definite chill in the air!
