Craft of the Week: 6 Great Fall Wreaths



Hi there, how was your weekend? We had a really nice one. Got some work done in the kitchen (yay!), went to church, got a jump on the laundry, took a hike with the kids, and even squeezed in a movie courtesy of the babysitting services of my brother-in-law and niece. We saw This Is Where I Leave You, and, while it won't crack our Top 20, it was worth the price of the tickets. Quirky, kinda sad, but good dialogue and some touching moments. So...on to another week!

I'm a sucker for a great fall wreath, aren't you? I can never decide which one I like best! Here are six I've pinned recently that made me go, "OOOOOOO, I love that!" I recently pulled out all of my dead annuals and spruced up the front porch with some mums and a huge coleus I had out back. Now I'm totally in the mood for a new wreath!

Retail Therapy Thursday: Fave Fall Finds

Hey, hey! As evidenced from my posts earlier this week, I've finally succumbed to fall. You got me, Pinterest! I held out for as long as I could, but the weather is feeling nippy and I'm ready to don my boots and cute scarf and go get something hot and pumpkin-spiced. Wouldn't it be nice to also have a wad of cash in my purse to buy everything I'm showing you today? A girl can dream...and while I'm at it, let's hope for a nice, long autumn and none of the white stuff until Dec. 24, k?

So here ya go...some drool-worthy, fall finds from three of my favorite places to shop: Pier 1, West Elm and Target.

Fall Decorating Ideas for the Whole House

Hello! How are my dear friends and followers today? I've been working on getting out all of my fall stuff the past few days and just thought I'd jump on to share some of the ways I'm decorating for fall around the house this year. It's so much fun to cozy up the house for autumn...but it can be tricky, too. Do you put out your Halloween stuff now, or wait a few weeks? And then do you turn around and change things again for Thanksgiving? I don't know how you feel, but that's way too much time and money invested by my book. I keep things basically the same for the whole season until Christmas, but I do change the wreath on the front door to be more Halloween-ish for a short while, and I put out my spooky crow and lantern, too. When trick-or-treating is over, everything goes back the way it was because it works for Turkey Day, too.

So anyhoo, here's my mantel this year...and in years past:
