I had planned on writing a post about some of the old architecture in Texarkana but once I’d gotten there to take photographs it was crazy busy. Unbeknownst to me they were having a parade in downtown to celebrate the Four States Fair today. So instead of my planned post I had to improvise.
As I was headed to TJ Maxx to pick up a platter to replace the one from previous mantle pictures I decided to stop to see what Kirkland’s had. (I learned the hard way that it’s not a good idea to nail a hole in the wall without taking the platter down first.)
Kirkland’s had a huge selection of fall decor. Lots of orange, brown, gold, and glitter everywhere. Here was my inspiration! I immediately started stocking up on all kinds of good stuff.
And here it is! Please ignore the terrible wall color(s)…..I’ve yet to find the right gray!
Kirkland’s had some really cute banners. I ended up choosing the one that says “Harvest” and hung it right on the mantle.

I also got some mini jute pumpkins in orange and natural, glitter coated acorns, pinecones, and the CUTEST burlap chevron pumpkin!

Orange Jute Mini Pumpkins, Shiny Pumpkins, and Glitter Acorns from Kirkland’s. These were piled in a white porcelain serving bowl and placed on my coffee table.
After spending way too much money and time in Kirkland’s I headed over to TJ Maxx to see if I could find a replacement platter for the one I broke. Got lucky because they had another just like I had. I also picked up a handblown glass pumpkin and a table runner. The glass pumpkin was paired with a few of the items I picked up at Kirkland’s and placed on the metal side table between my arm chairs. Oh yeah….I also got a yellow throw too while at TJ Maxx.

Last stop from the day was a quick run to Hobby Lobby to pick up some floral stems for my dining room table arrangement.
This arrangement was made with seven different floral stems and three white sunflower picks all from Hobby Lobby. I also added the burlap chevron pumpkin I found at Kirkland’s and filled in a bit with some of the acorns and pinecones. Table runner from TJ Maxx.
Below are a few more pictures of the various items I picked up today. I’ll try to let you know below each picture where I purchased each item.
