Fall Natural Decor: Price Match Game

With Halloween over, it will soon be time to pack up my spooky Halloween decorations and replace them with less ghoulish autumn and winter decor.  I've come across some great fall and winter decor accents online and it's time to play another round of my price match game!  If you're not familiar, from time to time I seek out  very similar furniture and decor items in multiple stores and then match them up to see if the cheaper items can be distinguished from their pricier counterparts (check out the lighting fixtures and bedroom furniture comparisons for more fun).

First, up birch tree bark candles.  The warm fire from these rustic natural looking birch candles is sure to make you feel cozy.

Next, tree branch wall art prints.  For less than you think, you can add these modern tree branch art prints to your home.

Lastly, some more candles.  It's hard to tell these gourds and pumpkins are actually candles.

Wow, that is pretty cool. I love finding the almost same thing but cheaper. I do that with clothes.
