Glorious weekend here! Hope you had a wonderful fall weekend where you live. We laid low for the most part. I am getting ready for the annual Say No to the Dress party that I host every October. I have found some hilarious vintage dresses this year….should be a bunch of laughs per the usual…..If you haven’t a clue about what I am referring to check out this post. Searching for some fun new recipes to try out…do you have any fall favorites? Do tell…..
Too many frickin pillows….seriously the pillows are going to take over our house. I was in a desperate need to clean up and declutter this week and these random pillows almost made their way to Goodwill. Instead, I came up with another purpose for them on the front porch. If you don’t have any random pillows laying around…and you want to make some of these for your front porch, check the local garage sales this weekend—I am sure you will find something that will be good enough to recover for the porch.
Oh my…blogland is a blaze with Christmas already….I’m not quite there yet. There are a few commitments I have that require me to post Holiday ideas earlier than I would like….but for the most part I try to live in the current season…and right now it is all turkey talk. I love Thanksgiving….it has always been a favorite holiday in our house. I partnered up this holiday season with Diamond Nuts to come up with some unique ways to craft with the whole nuts. I will be posting a few more this month. All of them are great kid activities when you have extra kiddos in the house. A fun way to spend a little bit of time together:)
This Votive candle would be so pretty dressed up on a Thanksgiving table. Make several and place them down the table….scatter a few pumpkins and squashes, whole cheastnuts…some dried leaves…and your table is done!
A few years back my friend Brittany made up the cutest chalkboard pumpkins. She painted a chevron pattern all around the sides and then in the middle she painted a large chalkboard oval that you could write fun Halloween messages on. It was a big hit at her kiddos fall festival.
That was my inspiration for my fall porch this year. I grabbed a few pumpkins and some black and white paint and went to town! These polka dots are so easy the novice crafter can do it….I promise! You just need the right size brush….if you can spin a top….then you can paint perfect polka dots. Easy!
Hey hey…happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s that time of year where we have a ton of extra candy in the house….send me some will power would you? My friends at Hershey’s sent a ginormous box of candy asking me to share with you a fun Halloween craft idea. Of course my kids think that I must realllllly be important now—since Hershey sent me candy…#ornot.
