Hi everyone! It’s finally fall in Georgia!! It was actually cold this morning – yippee! I feel so energized! I’ve felt like an exclamation point all day~giggle!

Well I promised I’d show what I found in the garbage so here they are. First, my wonderful husband dragged this perfectly good french door out of a neighbor’s trash.
The hinges are all rusted but otherwise it’s in perfect condition. Not one pane of glass is broken and it’s a nice heavy door. I have a stash of windows and doors that I’ve been saving because one day I’m going to build myself a little greenhouse made out of salvaged windows and doors. OR maybe I’ll use this one in the garden somewhere – wouldn’t that be cute – a door to nowhere or somewhere!
This is a wooden valance from the thrift store. When I saw it I thought it would look so cute in my daughter’s bedroom. I was going to paint it apple green because her bedroom is blue and apple green. Brought it home and it didn’t fit! Tried it in all the windows, even the smaller bathroom one….didn’t fit! So I was moaning to my daughter about how I have no place for it and she said “Mommy why don’t you try it over a door?” That girl is brilliant if I do say so myself!
How cute is that! We tried it on all the doorways and decided this one in the kitchen was best.
Another place to decorate! Think of the possibilities!
I shopped my house and have my “ode to the rooster” display up there right now.
Anyway, I’m just thrilled with it! You can’t beat free!
I hope you all are having a lovely day – I so enjoyed being out in the garden today and not sweating! More fall decorating on Thursday – I started fluffing up my screened porch for fall because we can finally eat outside without fainting from the heat!
