Fall Mantel 2019

I hope you all are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I’ve been busy with family but things are winding down now. Yesterday I was in the kitchen and heard a loud crash! The Harvest sign, fall arch and glass votive holders came crashing down! 😳 It scared the cats to death and they stayed under the bed for about two hours. Poor things! The hanger on the back of the sign had come loose. I went to Pier 1 imports yesterday and bought new votive holders and they actually look better than the ones I had. So it all worked out I guess and everything is put back together. I think I am done decorating for now until I do the outside. 

Also, I will be listing new fall items tonight and they will ship tomorrow before my mom and I leave for Dallas. I’m hoping to bring home lots of fall and Christmas materials to work with! I’ll share pice while I’m there.

Fall Kitchen Table


I’m back! 
I really need to stay on track with my blog! I’m just figuring out how to post on my blog from my phone. 😳 I know...I should have figured it out a long time ago! I do everything from my phone now so it will be a lot easier to post now. 

Have you started thinking about your fall decorating yet? It’s still early, but I’m almost done! 🍁

I made this centerpiece at 2 a.m. Ha! I’m a night owl. The melamine plates are from Marshall’s, the napkins are from Kohl’s and candle holder is from Pier1 Imports. The base of the centerpiece is a wreath and I added some pumpkins, greenery, and extra berries to it. I like to reuse my floral items from year to year in different ways. I’ve got one more arrangement to make for the kitchen island then I’m done! I won’t start decorating outside just yet...More pics to come!

Jesus is the reason for the season wreath


As the holiday season approaches let's try to remember the real reason for the season! I have sold several of these wreaths and have orders for more. 

 Are you decorating yet? I'm just getting started and am behind but it will eventually get done. I will share pics here soon! 

Have a great week!

Fall Dining Room Centerpiece

Oh how I love the colors of fall! I made this centerpiece full of pumpkins and hydrangeas and remembered I had the mosaic globe stashed in one of my closets! Ha! It fit perfectly in the center of the arrangement. Do you have seasonal decor stashed all over your house or is it just me? 

I hope you are having a wonderful October!

A Little Fall in the Entryway

I found this fence with the lights in Dallas several weeks ago. I set the fence down in a basket and added the pumpkins, berries and leaves around the bottom. It needed a little something so I added the gather sign on the fence. It is different, but turned out really neat! I hope you are having a great start to the fall months!

Fall In The Kitchen

Happy first day of October! I always think of Oct. 1 as the first day of fall. It starts to cool off about this time every year and it's also my birthday and those are coming around too fast! Ha!
I wanted to share a little bit of my fall kitchen with you today. I found the cute pumpkin spice sign at Michael's and added a little arrangement to the top. Isn't that scarecrow wall hanging adorable? I found I found it years ago and still love it. The island is also decked out with pumpkins and vines. Love this time of the year!
