Fall is Finally In the Air
Hello! I'm Vicky....do you remember me? LOL! I've been so busy recently and can't believe it's been two weeks since my last post. I miss blogging and hope to carve out time to post more soon. Until then, I'll share a few things from the past couple weeks. I finally decorated for fall this past week and am enjoying the warm colors. Check out my cute new squirrel plates I found at Wal Mart to add to my tablescaping stash. Aren't they adorable?
Let me share some of my decor. Here's the tag & twig banner I made last year. I still love it!
In the living room, I placed a few decorations here and there.
Since time has been limited lately, I just printed this banner and made it two-sided so I could enjoy it from the living and dining room. I added a fall leaf garland to the shelf above. Simple, but pretty!
The bookshelves have a few pumpkins and fall leaves scattered about.
The buffet also got a few fall decorations.....
as did the shelf.
I made a fall snack mix to give out to some of my teacher friends at school...:)
It was so tasty....rice Chex cereal, butter snap waffle pretzels, candy corn, candy corn M&M's and white chocolate.
I did just a tiny bit of thrifting yesterday. I had a Dr appointment and ran to the Goodwill after to look for something for an upcoming project. Anywho, I stumbled upon this beautiful solid wood coffee table for $29.99. It is super sturdy and I love the drawer.
I opened the drawer in the store and saw this inside and knew it cost far more than $29.99 new. I found one just like it online for $158! I would say I got a great deal! It is like new...just a couple tiny scuff marks. And, I love the black, so no paint job needed!
I also found this wall planter. I love these plastic resin pieces. This one will get a paint job and will be used on my new porch. Speaking of that new porch I've been dreaming of for years, we are planning to start building it in December. I am so excited! I have big plans for it and already have lots of decorative items I've been collecting for a few years.
After my Dr appointment yesterday, the hubby and I went to Home Depot and bought a new heater. We do not have central heat/air and since we remodeled, we did not want to put a gas heater back in the house, so we decided to try one of these for now. I love it! I really love the fact that I can turn the "fire and flames" on without the heater part. It's very cozy...:)
I enjoyed looking at it last night while enjoying this.....brown sugar, pecan pound cake. Homemade by my Aunt Loretta....toasted with a little butter on top and a cup of hot chocolate. We've finally been having some cooler temperatures and I take advantage when we do.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the last two weekends. Both full of family, fun, and laughs. I am blessed.
Hope life is treating you well. Have a wonderful week.
Oh...be sure to check in this week if you are interested in participating in my Christmas Ornament Exchange this year. I will be posting information this week.
Until next time.....
