Some Fall Decorating and New Layout with My Memories Suite software

I got some fall decorating done on our porch.  I really like scarecrows for the fall season because it can go from September until Thanksgiving.  
I made this many years ago & still love it!  The scarecrow was one of my fav things to paint!
I made this about 3 years ago.  I got the tin basket on clearance.
 I don't think I have shared pictures of our dining room in our new home yet.  The chandelier has got to go!  Still looking for one we really like.  Here is our room all decorated for fall...
Here's our Craigslist table & chairs!  Napkins on the window valance.
The china cabinet that my Dad made my Mom.  The framed prints are now roosters.
The scarf is a Real Deals find ($2.49), as is the plate! The chicken is a clearance item & the teapot, from an antique mall, which I got on my travels in September, with handpainting from a fellow crafter of mine many years ago.
In our family room, we have a double doored cabinet (another Craigslist find) to hold my hubby's many Coke collectibles.  Above it is our family picture wall.
That is the sum of my fall decorating.  I have a plastic bin of fall decor sitting in my garage at this very minute that I can't get to.  So I used what I had & added a couple of discount items.  Now Christmas will be another story!!

I wanted to share another layout I did with the My Memories Suite software.  
Summer fun at the Oregon Coast!

Loved seeing all your Fall decorations. When I looked at your cabinet I thought one of my roosters got away from our home. Your wreath is lovely and your kitchen is awesome! BTW, I like that chandelier! Hugs, Gayle.

Hello dear Cindy,
You have a lovely home! The hutch that your Dad made your Mom is beautiful. And you know...we could revamp that chandelier! ;) I love your decorations. The wreath on your front door is too cute! I love scare crows too.
Thanks for sharing with us!
Hugs, Sonya

I loved all your Fall decorating, but I've got to tell you, your Coca-Cola collection caught my eye! We collect Vintage Coke treasures and our office is filled with all of it! I would love for you to link up Thursday (actually it starts tonight) to It’s a Party!
