Fall wreath and other odds and ends

I had a great weekend! Saturday Aries and I went thrifting! Lets just say we are bad influences on eachother and spent waaaaaaaay too much money! But it was all worth it! I found some great things and can't wait to transform them! We also went to the dollarstore and Michael's (My first time there!) Now that place could be dangerous! hahahahah. Anyway I picked up some stuff to make a fall wreath. (4 from dollarstore with the acorns and the 4 wheat ones from Michael's and they were 50% off)

I put it all together and made this. I think however, it needs something more. It looks a little empty.
I have been busy crafting through the week as well but haven't had a chance to post anything new. Let's see.
Here is my $2.99 stool very orange. with gold glitter in it! hahahahah 
I wrapped it in burlap and spray painted the legs. love!
I got this beauty for .99! As well as this:

Spray painted them black and white....
love! (I also love the beautiful picture Mike's sister painted of our house)
I had this guy sitting in my living room and spray painted it as well....
And I found this at the dollarstore and thought of Ben right away. hahahah So I painted over that, and stenciled his name on it, and now it sits above his bed.
I am very happy with all the transformations and have more stuff to work on this week.
I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing weekend!
