Mr Bones!

So, I finally put up the fall stuff.

It was chilly and rainy yesterday so it was perfect for decorating and cooking.
I quickly made some taco soup-(that 2 of my 3 children did not eat )
& then went downstairs for the halloween crap!
I have so much decor that I have to store it under the stairs. I know that I am not the only one who does this.
I couldn't put anything out that was remotely spooky-except for this.
I couldn't help myself.

I stopped at the dollar store for a second and I saw these bags of bones.

the skulls were in a pkg.

the arm bones were in a seprate bag. At least I think that they are arm bones.

I thought that my kids would love this.

I was right, and my husband got a kick out of it as well.

I love thes glass jars-this one was a $1 at goodwill.

I wanted to put candy in it-but my children would have ate it all. (and mom too-at least I tell the truth)

So-bones it was.

I also shoved my cute cloth pumpkins in this basket with some leaves.

I can say they are cute cause I didn't make them.

My very talented MIL did.

I love them cause they can stay up till the christmas trees come out!

I am hoping that little MIL plug will entice her to give me the chicken runner! :)

I also found this little cheese dome for $1.00-and the little gourds in it-they were at the dollar store as well.

I so scored at Dollar Tree yesterday!

I havn't been there in forever-maybe I should go more often?

Probably better if I stay away!

You know what I really like? Your teapot lamp! So cute!

How cute! fall decorations have got to be my favorite

Okay! Your DI has better stuff than mine. Seriously!!!! I go in there sometimes and there is nothing. Cute stuff though.

I'm not going to that class anymore. My friend forbid me from going on my 30th birthday, so let's go out another night. I'll call you tommorrow.

Hi, Tausha.

Jill sent me your blog because she said she invited you to a meet and greet I'm doing. I would love to have you join us!

I love all your fall stuff. You are very talented. I do Christmas, and that's it. Sometimes, I don't even want to decorate for Christmas!

I will be following your blog. Hope to meet you soon.

I have those bones too... hmm should I make some man of mine go back in the attic to get them back down now that I know what to do with them?... wow that was a long run on sentence! Thanks for the idea!

Tasha you are so cute to say you FINALLY put up your decorations when I haven't even thought about mine!
It all looks very darling!!!

Heather said...

I saw those bones at the dollar store and wanted to get them, but just wasn't sure what to do with them. Now I know!!! I love it!

Yeah! You are a sweetheart!
Will you delete the other one too:)
The Mr. Bones Jar is pretty cool. My grandson, Sam would get a kick out of that one! I too scored at Dollar Tree and found great stuff today. Can't beat a dollar!
I missed the covered cheese dome though. Everything looks so nice and ready for Fall.
Is your tooth pain better? I felt bad for you.
Have a great weekend!

AJ said...

Ohh! I like those bones:)

Nikki said...

Cute bones! I have started going to the DT and have been surprised with the cute finds.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that gets excited about good deals on boring household items.

Marie said...

Beautiful fall decorations. Even the jar of bones! Which, by the way, is a great idea!!

Susie Harris said...

Cute cute cute! I love your fall stuff! That glass jar for $1 was a steal!

Thanks for stopping by to visit, nice to meet you! I agree...there's nothing better than a bargain!

I love your jar 'o bones! That is too cute! Our Dollar Tree didn't have any of the cool gourds. Maybe they were sold out from Bloggers. ha!

JenG said...

Love them bones, them bones, them bones.... CUTE

Joy said...

I bought a lot of those same items at DT. Funny how it's just a dollar and then you get up to the register and twenty dollars later....
I think my boys are going to love the bones too. I'm waiting until Oct. before I put those out.

meg duerksen said...

you look ready for fall!
i can't bear to get one thing out yet. i still want summer. the most decorating i do for fall is the outside pumpkins and mums.
now christmas...i go big. so i have no energy left for the rest of the year.

nice to meet you!
where did you see my bathroom pics..i'm curious. :)

Shannon said...

I love all your fall stuff so far!! Those bones are awesome! I need to get on over to the Dollar Tree now!

I love your before and afters in the previous post too!

Leeann said...

Okay, the bones...gotta copy that idea. Hilarious!

Kristi said...

I haven't got my fall out yet. Still waiting for the mess of getting new floors installed to be over with. Though hubby is talking about painting, so I might have to wait even longer

Rachel said...

I love the jar o' bones! And thanks now I have that Mr. Bones song in my head. Great!


Sharla said...

I found your blog from Meg's - I am SO going to have to try and get me and my boys some bones. They would love those!
