Once Halloween is over, you can paint your real pumpkins and add a touch of bling to create elegant pumpkins for Thanksgiving. Why toss all of those orange pumpkins? Add a little paint, ribbon and some sparkle to create something beautiful.
Pumpkins. It might be a sickness that I have. (Is Pumpkinitis a thing…?) The only thing that might be better than an awesome pumpkin or two would be awesome pumpkins stacked into a topiary. I searched Hometalk and put together a little round up of some super examples of pumpkin topiaries that are sure […]
OK, so if Jack Skellington is the Pumpkin King, I wondered what the Pumpkin Queen might look like…. So I decided to make a pumpkin with a crown on it. My BFF loves Halloween as much as I do, so I thought I’d make a pumpkin for her. With a crown. Because who wouldn’t want […]
I just boxed up the last of the Halloween decor and now I am thinking about ideas for our Thanksgiving table decor. We host Thanksgiving each year, and I think last year’s decor might have been my favorite: I loved the hanging centerpiece and the white, beribboned pumpkins with just a touch of bling. A […]
Do you love those cinnamon scented pine-cones that are sold this time of year? (In a house full of stinky boys, I am a big fan of yummy air fresheners!) I love them and want them on display, but I like mixing them up with other fall elements. Popping those pine-cones into a big tarnished […]

I had the cutest little spring time weathervane. It was a running rabbit and I just loved it. You’re noticing the past tense? Had. Was. Loved. That poor guy had and accident and got broken. Since I am a pack-rat/potential project supply hoarder, I held on to the base of the weathervane… just in […]
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 […]
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.
