Welcome back to our Fall Fun Series! I thought I'd share my meager bit of pumpkin themed decor with you guys today. :)
I'm not very artistic about where we put our decor, and I'm rather limited on surfaces deco can go. If there's one complaint I have about our home, it's that the multitude of windows and doors seem to be in all the wrong places. Also, the walls are cement so hanging stuff isn't really a thing. I get by with tape and command hooks.
The cute wooden name plate is something my mom made for us. It interlinks Michael and I's names by our last name. Back home, she has a matching one that matches me and my immediate family members together with my maiden name. The Alpha Outpost wooden 6-pack holder is from a lootcrate style box that Michael gets every month. From what I understand, it's a "manly" box. Michael just read this over my shoulder and said in a pseudo-haughty way, "It's a tacti-cool box." It has things like metal drink (beer) cozies, lighters, and knives. In any case, I stole this since I thought it looked nice with our little nook he have going on. :)
We don't have many pumpkins, but what we do have makes me happy. Between our pumpkin-leaf on the bookshelf and this little nook of the living room, I feel very happy with our beginning to decor.
If you're new to the series and my blog, this is my first year actively decorating for a season. Up until now, we've either not had the funds or I've simply not cared enough about decorating to spend the money on making our home seasonally appropriate. So, enjoy watching this house slowly come together... that is, until we PCS again! :)
