{ Best Target Dollar Spot Fall Decor }

Happy Monday! I wanted to pop on here quickly  today & share some finds from Target to add to your fall decor!! A few simple  essential items to add that cozy October  fall feel is all you need..A lot of these items are from the dollar  spot...which to me is a plus!! I chose to style them in our kitchen  window,  because I love keeping that area fresh & to be honest the dining  room was chaotic  with the new table  today..more on that later { I'm  so excited to share our $30 table} with you guys!! Anyways come gather some essential  fall item inspiration  in this cozy fresh little  kitchen window  of ours...



1. Wood Recipe Cards

 These cute apple & pumpkin pie wood hanging recipe cards were a whopping  $1 each. They're  cute, practical & super affordable!


2. Acorn  Spice Soap Set

These Mrs Meyers  soap set collections have become so popular  in the last five or so years. I started buying them because I  love the cozy clean look of them paired together  & they smell fresh!! This new acorn set is my favorite!! Perfect blend of spice...They're  less than $4 each too.

3. Cake stand holder

I chose to use this classic staples as a soap  /sink display, but it's  cute classic  & for $3 can be used anywhere  just about!


4. Mini White Pumpkins

These little  white pumpkins were also $1 each & I actually  got them last year..but I DID see similar ones this year. I like that they're  small & the brass stem gives a fresh but still modern cottage feel. I simply stuck them in the white gravy bowls with greenery. 

5. Candles

I was so excited to spot those black glass jar candles  with the cork tops in the dollar spot!! AND the best part?? They're  BONFIRE scented..eek!! It's  my favorite  scent but so hard to find..For $3 or $5 they're  so worth it. The chunky cork top adds warmth & the sleek black jar is perfect for any style! 



 

The simplest four items can add that much fall charm to any space this season isn't that great?!. Fresh clean scented soaps, mini pumpkins, cake stand  & some recipe  cards..Cozy at its  best!!
• Do you love the Target Dollar spot? What's  your favorite  fall item  this year?

{ Cozy Halloween Decor Inspiration }

Hey pals & welcome back to TQS! Sorry I've been a little mia since we got back from our northern Michigan anniversary getaway on Sunday! When we were driving home on Sunday I started to feel a cold coming on..Mark had the snuffles the day before but was okay { thankfully}, so I didn't think much of it. I should have known though, I always pick up what someone has 2fold...I'm glad I got it & not him, because he has no spleen from a bad accident years ago. Anyways by Monday I was really under the weather & couldn't hear out of my left ear. I immediately called for antibiotics as I already suffer from vertigo & didn't want to chance it...Well after all that I'm on the mend & ready to share some good ole spooky Halloween inspiration! Want to hear something crazy? I've been blogging for over 6 years & have only blogged 2 Halloween posts...TWO!! I'm honestly not into Halloween, but my readers are & why not try it. I blogged our fireplace HERE    & today I'm sharing some  looks from others' Halloween looks in different parts of their homes! I hope you enjoy...Don't get scared now....

 


 


 


 


 


 


 




I hope you enjoyed these inspiring accounts/ feeds! I picked my favorites that stopped me while scrolling!

Happy Thursday!

{ Our 10th Year of Marriage }

Happy Thursday, pals!! Wow 10 y e a r s! I'm sitting here in the Jeep cozied in watching the fall colors on the trees while Mark's driving & reflecting on the past 12 years together & 10 married. It's been a wild time with so many ups & downs as well. We've been through so much from dealing loss of a parent/ family members, new family, adoptions, surgeries & just life .But together we're still here & much in love. 
I can remember this day 10 years ago & almost every detail down to putting on my dress & seeing Mark's face as I was walking down the isle! I thought it'd be fun to do a little "recap" about us..If you're interested♡


Fun FAQS About us:

We decided to have a little impromptu 10 year anniversary photoshoot up on Carp Lake in northern Michigan..Although so windy, we managed to pick some cute purple flowers..or maybe they were weeds ha. Another fun fact: Mark proposed on Christmas eve 2008 in front of my entire family under the Christmas tree! 


I would take 10 candid shots over staged any day.. Mark was trying to get me to laugh & he moved the chair back fast & I hysterically started laughing.. I mean he's the best blog hubby ever haha.


YES!! Hundred times over..I would always choose yes!.. Ask me again when he's bugging me haha just kidding!

 

Birch trees are one of my favorites & my aunts property was littered in them!! 

 

From meeting at age 9 { he lived next to my aunts best friend} to 16 meeting back up to 19 dating & 21 getting married, your arms are where I most feel content! I struggle with anxiety, but he can always calm my mind & soul. No marriage is perfect but I'd say we're pretty close. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this fun little flashback today with us & learned a little more about our silliness!! 

HAPPY THURSDAY

{ Easiest Pumpkin Display for Indoors or Outdoors }

Happy Tuesday pals & welcome back to TQS from northern Michigan!! If you've been following on my social media outlets you'd know we're up north celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary { September 26th }. We are so blessed to have a cottage in west Michigan to go & unwind, enjoy great food, lakes & antique!! We will be up here for 5.5 days & a few locations...One thing I've noticed is the abundance of pumpkins up here compared to the city or "down state". It got me thinking about how to share an EASY + AFFORDABLE & COZY way to display pumpkins both inside & out....Here's the simplest way:...Keep reading below!


BUCKET FULL OF PUMPKINS!

 

So, let me explain a little more in depth..I wanted to share something to display pumpkins for the season for any home or style & that's doable for both inside & outside!!

DISPLAY IDEAS:

.Baskets
.Galvanized Buckets
. Hampers
.Crocks
.Picnic Baskets
.Firewood pals


I chose to use this firewood pal because it added that vintage charm & fall feeling..Plus it fit quite a bit of pumpkins!!
I just piled in the larger faux cream ones & them staggered the smaller ones effortlessly!

 

INDOOR + OUTDOOR:


This pumpkin display idea can be used both indoors or outdoors on patios & porches. 
When using outdoors be sure to use faux plastic or real, not burlap or cotton/ fabrics!


I hope you loved this simple & mostly VERSATILE seasonal decor idea for your home! I'm sorry it's a bit short, I'm actually in the jeep way up in northern Michigan on my 10 year anniversary. Okay, off to enjoy!

HAPPY TUESDAY!

{ Keep your Mums Alive Easily }

It's that time of the year again where mums are popping up on every corner market stand, nursery & even the grocery stores!! If you've been a longtime TQS blog reader you'd know I'm not the greatest at keeping real plants alive..just being completely honest! This year while at our local nursery ~Steinkopf~ I talked to one of the young guys I always bug to help me when I need props & this year Mark urged me to ask him how to keep these mums going...SO GLAD I DID!! He gave me some super simple, but helpful tips & I had to share...


 

We picked up four mums this year! Simple, & at $8 a pop it was efficient too. We chose bold oranges & reds! 

 

1. Water every two days!

 Not too much, not too little.


2.  They LOVE sun! 

Keep them full of that sunny goodness.


3. Water Gently!

Broken stems will not come back on most mums as he stated. 

 

4. Cut off dead or broken stems!

Mum stems that are broke usually will not come back. 


 

I hope these super simple  tips help your fall mums flourish! I should mention these are the tips for outdoor mums in their original pots! Now, what's YOUR FAVORITE MUM COLOR??

{ New Fall Mantel Picture }

So little random fact about me? I love old cozy paintings, prints etc....It's one of my first items I look for when we frequent antique shops, vendors, flea markets & so on. The other day I stopped in at a little shop I used to vend at to kill some time & anxiety! If you didn't know, tomorrow { Tuesday} I go for a brain CT scan. Something I never thought I'd be writing about or having to explain. I'm extremely scared not to mention I physically don't feel well from what's going on { praying it's just vertigo }. Anyways, to keep my mind off of things I stopped in at our local little shop not thinking I'd spot my dream piece!!!! You all know I loveee me some vintage East coast colonial style decor..Well, I now that the coziest piece above our living room mantel!!

 

First I'm so sorry this post is so short, & secondly the quality! I love to use natural lighting BUT M i c h i g a n..haha. I couldn't wait to show you this stunner though!!  I paired it with some appropriate white metal lanterns, simple pumpkin or two & cottonstems for that classic fall colonial feel!! 
The crock & sprigs of greenery add that fresh & vintage style paired as one. 



I just love the simplicity of this old colonial farmhouse. It looks like some straight out of Maine..In fact I think I took a photo of a home similar while vacationing..YES MY MAINE OBSESSION IS REAL haha.



I wish I could have captured the detail a bit better..The rustic creased paper, imperfections , rustic charm & then some, and for only $20..no typo!!


What are some of your favorite things to collect? 

Happy Tuesday!

{ Vibrant Vintage Fall Porch }

Ahhhh my favorite post of autumn or fall.. THE PORCH!! Which do you say? I actually prefer saying autumn haha..it just sounds more New England-ish. You guys know I love autumn on the East coast up by Maine, Connecticut, Vermont etc.. The warm fresh colors, crisp air & vintage wood colonial homes are like nothing else. Anyways, that was kind of my inspiration for this  year's front porch, BUT with a slight spin!!! I decided I wanted to add a touch of  Halloween to it as well. Not the plastic, glittery /gory kind { if you like that, awesome} but more of the Hocus Pocus vintage Salem town it's filmed in! I'm going to stop gabbing & just let you take a look...


 

We replaced the wood planks first off! I'm actually surprised they last two years in the Michigan elements with just an overhang!! We had more leftover, so fresh warm wood planks it was!! The second thing was the focal point & that's the gorgeous red mums!! I got these for $7.99 each at our local nursery & they're so pretty!! Red ones are my fav & paired with the freshly painted garage they add that much more charm♡.



 

As you can see I'm pretty obsessed with these SUPER simple Halloween prints, so I moved them out to the fall porch potting bench!! I love the black frames, red mums , soft white pumpkins + gourds together!! 

 


 

The copper tools, metal garden plaque & watering can added to this cozy space!!

 
I pulled the vintage red wagon  out at the last minute & I'm glad I did!! It adds that rusty vintage antique charm I crave &+storage for the pumpkins & old galvanized buckets!!


So I have to ask- What are your favorite color mums? I hope you  loved this freshened up fall porch & barn garage!!  Do I dare say I love the color red bahaha.

HAPPY THURSDAY!
