Things have shifted a bit for me, as those dreaded school years have slipped into a distant memory. Fall has quickly become my new fav time of year. The weather is starting to cool off, but not as chilly as winter....perfect for fuzzy scarves, thick socks & tall boots...hot chocolate & warm apple pies....crackling fires & cozy blankets.

Also of course, Halloween, Thanksgiving......and my birthday ;-)
I've gotten some fall-ish touches up around the house...can't wait to add more fun decor, as we get closer to Thanksgiving, when we'll be hosting a yummy traditional turkey dinner for the very first time...hope we don't burn the main dish, eek!
Anyway - in addition to my burlap wreath, button pumpkin & mod podged frame...I have added:
- a fabric pumpkin that I made from an old linen tie bag, stuffing, a stick from outside and fake fall colored leaves.
- a centerpiece that I created for about $5.... $1 glass container from Walmart, $1 bag of mini cinnamon-scented pine cones, $1 bag of mini plastic pumpkins, $1 cream/brown/green fake flowers, & $1 bunch of greenery....all from Michael's!!
- a "Spooky" sign hanging on our screen door and a "BOO!" porcelain pumpkin with fall leaves on our outdoor shelf, both from the dollar store (sometimes buying it pre-made is cheaper than DIY!)
- and a scrapbook paper bunting banner, that I hung up around my little cube at work.
OH...and really quick...on that note of being inspired, I created my very first 'subway-style' art for this time of year using Picnic...cannot wait to frame this & put it up somewhere! Download your own copy here!
