Hi, all (yes, I'm talking to all 2 of you!),
I'm having fun trying to figure out how to make my blog "cooler", so I'm going to try playing around with posting pictures. So, here goes nothing...
My favorite season is fall. I love the changing of leaves, the cooler temps, the smell of cider...I pretty much love anything associated with this time of year! Today, I decided to break out some of my fall decorations. Here is something I threw together for a simple and inexpensive centerpiece for my dining room table.
I have held onto this hurricane shade for years, thinking that I would someday have a use for it. Well, friends, that day has come. Here is the plain Jane shade:
Then, you add a taper candle and holder that you purchase at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!
Now, that makes me even more excited for fall to come. While I'm working on getting the hang of posting pictures, these next two are for my friend Jeanne. I bought a tassel from Susie Harris. She has the sweetest blog with the most wonderful projects to do. Anyway, I fell in love with her and her tassels and had to buy one! So, I did. Here is my tassel. Her name is "Miss Fancy", and no, I didn't name her. Susie did! She was great to buy from, and the packaging was amazing with handcrafted tags and a handwritten thank you note. So sweet. So, I shared my love of the tassel with Jeanne, and she now owns one from the Nester, another fabulous tasseller (is that a word?). I love me some tassels, and I WILL learn how to make them. You just wait!!
Here is Miss Fancy...she is hanging in our master bedroom in all her robin's egg blue and chocolate brown glory!
Now, for the two of you reading, could you give me some advice? I have this picture frame a friend gave me two Christmases ago, but I want to use it for something besides pictures. The three openings are 3x3 each, so they don't allow for very large items. I was thinking of using something with scrapbook papers or embellishments. Any suggestions? Take a looksie. Then, drop me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks!
One more thing...I have decided not to use our whole names on this blog in order to protect the kids from any yucky people who may be lingering out there in cyberspace. Since our initials spell out a portion of the alphabet (J, K, L, M, and N), I decided I will call us by those instead of our names. Thanks for understanding!
Thanks for dropping in!
