but then i realized that since fall kind of snuck up on me, i hadn't decorated at all. not one bit. no pumpkins, no apple-related items, no dead cornstalks tied together on the front porch, no leaf wreaths, nothing. but right now, all my decorating stuff's in storage and though a scavenger hunt sounds fun, a scavenger hunt through boxes in a dirty basement with a toddler in tow does not. time for a little imagination.
when i was at target the other day and everyone in my house had a cold, i bought a bunch of boxes of tissues. one of them had a cool orange owl on it to match my orange bathroom. and because everyone had a cold, the box was quickly emptied. i spied the box, unfolded, in my paper recycling pile.
a quick search around the house yielded one of those "invisible" frames that just has glass in the front and nothing around the outside. i think i bought it as part of a two-pack at the dollar store a while back.
so, cut out owl from tissue box. stick in frame. done. if i had some cool patterned orange scrapbook paper, i'd have put that behind the owl in the frame. but as it is, i think it makes a nice bookcase decoration. what do you think?
