Yesterday I did a wrap up of our Thanksgiving dinner and decor, but I wanted to share how I put together the hanging centerpiece before I move on to all things Christmas. There are no rules here. I mixed yard clippings with rhinestones and mercury glass with mason jars… it all worked together. I explained […]
Thanksgiving Wrap Up: Dinner, Decor and the Thanksgiving Table
Nothing makes me happier than having friends and family around during the holidays. The more, the merrier! (And I love, love, love how my Thanksgiving table turned out.!) Painted pumpkins, greenery from the yard and candles made it gorgeous.
A transitional floral arrangement: Fall into Winter Centerpiece.
Even though stores are ready for Christmas in July, I can’t bring myself to put up a single decoration before December 1st. This easy centerpiece helps me transition from fall to winter.
Easy pedestal pumpkin for Thanksgiving.

Tree Bark Candle Holders: An easy DIY project

Easy Damask Pumpkin using trashed craft supplies.
I had left over strips of paper from another project, so I took a little Mod Podge and covered a pumpkin with it. I love how it turned out!
Going Batty: Making over a bare wall for Halloween.
I have a wall in my dining room that is under-done 11 months of the year… but not in October. Grant loves to help me with the placement of the bats. (We like to make them look like they’re swarming towards a corner of the room.) This couldn’t be easier. Cut some bat shapes out […]
