Wow friends, it has been AWHILE! I had to re train myself on how to blog! Is anybody still here? I know that I hear from some of you on instagram and facebook….hope others are still here:) I hope to blog a bit more often, now that life is settling a bit.
We have had a cray cray 2018—let’s just say we are looking forward to this winter and turning the calendar page to 2019. I know that you come here to finding inspiration….so I thought I would give you a bit of fall goodness today. Even though temperatures are still in the 90’s….I decided to pull some fall things out and re arrange them a bit. I got a couple of new things at Homegood’s—but everything else was from other parts of the house. It is a simple mantle—but I like it that way.
I wanted to show you how you can create something similar in your home—just by layering a few things at a time.
I started with a wreath that I have had a long time. I actually shared this several years back (how to make a full wreath for not a lot of cash:) Next, I placed one tall wheat and a smaller one (both found at Homegood’s) on the left side, and I balanced that with a lantern I took from the Dining Room. Then I added in some smaller items like a couple of framed pictures of my kiddos (when they were little, sigh), some fake apples (that totally look real), a piece of pottery from the kitchen, and some old books from the library.
I placed this old window (that has been everywhere in our house) and I secured a wheat wreath with floral wire….
All the colors of fall….nice and cozy…I added in a few flameless candles as well:) See me on instagram and I will share that this week:)
I hope that gives you a few ideas for your own mantle. Kentucky friends, I added a few fall inspired watercolor pillows in the Etsy shop….. Stop by to see! If you have a minute, my peanut started a blog….go show her some love! http://emilysclaire.blogspot.com/
This recipe caught my eye (and tummy;) last weekend while reading my Food network magazine. The tang of Key Lime is a welcome flavor after a heavy meal. Something bite size, creamy, tangy, and sweet…all in a little perfect white chocolate dipped ball:) I thought I would share the recipe with you since they were a hit in my house;) If you are going to a cookie exchange this year, these would be easy to double. Plan a bit ahead just for the chill time….

Hi all! Hope you had a great weekend and start of December. I shared some of these photos a few weeks back on instagram but I wanted to pop in and share them on the blog too. I created some lovely DIY flower arrangements with just a few items from my local grocery store. These came together really quick and much easier than I thought they would. I thought that you may like a few of these tips in you were planning to decorate for any holiday parties.

Hi all! Christmas is coming!! We started to decorate a bit this weekend…It was fun to pull the decorations out and see where they will fit in this house. We seem to have a lot more space to put things…which I love:) Our front room will have our main Christmas tree and we put up a smaller tree (that we scored at Home Depot for $30!) in our family room. I wanted to pop in and share how we decorated it (and when I say “we”, I mean I;)

Hey y’all! Wanted to pop in and just finish off the posts that I was doing about Jack’s graduation party. I have told you that I was helping to put together some decorations for my nephew’s High School graduation this year. It has been so much fun finding unique projects on Pinterest and through other bloggers. I shared with you a few weeks back the Hat Card Box that I made. I also shared the chalkboard and I wanted to give you an idea of what else was going to go on the tables and a few other unique ideas that you might like to use for your own graduation celebrations.
