I pray your day is blessed with all good things and you are surrounded with family, friends, and love.
So I have all these random thoughts throughout the day. Thoughts that I think would make good blog posts. And so as I’m working almost round the clock on wholesale pillow orders I compose those blog posts in my mind. I add in witty phrases her and philosophical thought there.
And oh, if those words could just flow straight from my brain to my blog you, my readers, would be so well entertained and steeped in knowledge you wouldn’t be able to stand it.
It’s been a whirlwind of life and business around here the past couple weeks. I spend my days working every single minute to create pillows to fill orders, stopping only to do what has to be done – like pick up my daughter from school and throw a bit of food on the table occasionally to keep everyone from starving. It’s crazy crazy busy, but such a blessing too.
Today I’m going to share how a vintage desk drawer becomes fall decor.
I have this uncle. He’s a really great guy and he has this love-of-junk gene that he inherited from his dad. His Dad was my Grandpa. My Grandpa loved old junk. He collected it, saved it, stock-piled it, and I’m sure he had grand plans in his head for what all he was going to create with it. Grandpa didn’t ever get all his junk used up and I now have some of that junk and am very happy to have it – I call it ‘junque’.
My uncle inherited that gene and has accumulated a pile of junk himself – I call his ‘junque’ too cause it’s some seriously drool-worthy junk. And like his Dad (my Grandpa) he hasn’t fixed up, or created stuff with all of his piles he’s accumulated.
Yep, you read that title correctly. I’ve created a Duct Tape Pennant Banner. The medium of choice for this months Project Challenge was Duct Tape. And I had grandiose plans for an ah-mAY-zing duct tape project. I even bought my duct tape months ago when I saw a roll of red, white, and blue Union Jack print duct tape. But, alas. My duct tape roll went missing. Abduction charges have been placed on my youngest daughter 😀
Time for another Dose of Diy and today I’m going to show you how to create a fall centerpiece and just how easy it is to do! You don’t have to buy a bunch of new stuff, you don’t have to buy an expensive flower arrangement (although those are lots of fun too ) and you don’t need to stress over it. I seriously created a few different centerpieces in just a few minutes. It took longer to photograph them all than it did to create them!
Have I ever got a fun post to share with you today!
It’s been hard to wait and not post too early! I love my photos, I had fun with the photo shoot and fall is just so much fun. So beautiful and wonderful and amazing. And my little garden shed in my back yard was the perfect backdrop for a Fall Picnic.
utumn leaves, sticks from the yard, a waning succulent, a few sprigs from a berry bush. A vintage bedspring vase. Filled to the brim with Autumn’s Offerings.
I love bringing outdoor elements into my home for decor. It makes for a quick, easy, and cheap refresh of my home and adds seasonal decor without breaking the bank.
This month the Junk Visionaries blog group category was ‘using outdoor elements’. Just my style
I love fluffing our home and the change of seasons provides the perfect reason to change out some decor and freshen things up! Joining up with blog friends for a Fall Home Tour 2015 kicked me in gear to get it done this year too! I had fun, buying a few pumpkins, a white mum, some broom corn, a decorative cabbage, and a tiny pumpkin decorated with miniature succulents.
