A Box full of FALL...

Have a told you how much I LOVE fall?? I do :)

I bought this cool metal box at Antiques Downtown last week while I was working.

LOVE the writing...

...and the numbers on the slots.

I just added some button magnets and a favorite fall and my "favorites".

And "balanced" a few knob holders.

My box full of FALL.  
I have a feeling you'll be seeing this cool old box again...I am in love.  Is that weird??

Fall Mantel 2013...just can't wait any longer...

I LOVE fall...and whenever I can, I like to decorate with natural fall elements.  Real leaves, fresh picked pumpkins and gourds.

I've been waiting "patiently" for the leaves to change around my house.

Last year at this time I was out there "harvesting" until my arms were full for centerpieces for a women's event at church.

Yesterday I finally gave in and gathered the few that I could find and clipped them here...

...and there.

Can you tell the pumpkins and gourds are "faux"?  I grabbed them while shopping for groceries the other day.  I'm thinking when I can get my hands on some real ones I will mix them in.  Who knows, might make my fall decorating a little more "frugal" in the future??

We added these license plates this fall...that big space has always bothered me, but I never had the "right thing" to hang there.

My husband and I will celebrate our 13th anniversary on Oct. I added a favorite photo for fun.  "Personal touch" :)
Thanks for the "visit"...
I'll be sharing more fall SOON!!

Enjoy your day!

A Couple More Drawer Shelves...and a "coffee station" gone crazy!!

It all started with a couple more drawer shelves...

...and turned into a coffee station gone CRAZY :)

I had my husband help me hang and couple more shelves today...

It started innocently enough...

A couple of drawers on the wall...add a metal pan and a cabbage slicer for photos.

Throw in a bottomless crate, a couple of clocks and some blue bottles and pitchers.
But it still needed "something"...

...enter a couple of license plates and a cool yardstick...MILK, CREAM, EGGS...perfect :)

And then the thought..."I've always wanted a "Coffee Station".

And then of course those little built in shelves needed a "tweaking" to coordinate.

Coffee time?

Or are you a "tea person"?

Remember my little K-cup stand?

Not coffee time?  Just close it up...

Does that ever happen to you??  "Snowball effect"?  I'm kinda "famous" for it at my house.  My husband's exact words were "Whoa, that's a lot".  He'll get used to it...and then I'll start "tweaking" again!!

Re-purposing for FALL...revisiting...

I love fall and I LOVE's a little peek back at some things I've made in past years...

So that's a few "blasts from the pasts".  
I haven't done too much for here for fall...yet.  I'm hoping to change that today.  I may have to run out for a pumpkin spice latte for "inspiration"??

Thanks for stopping by!

Chat soon,

Great Day for a Garden Party...Birthday

We held on to summer here for 1 more weekend.

My littlest charmer has a late August birthday and she wanted a "Garden Party".  Since the end of summer fills up with last minute getaways and end of summer projects we decided to wait until after school started.

The girls had fun decorating party hats...

I found a couple of tutorials on Pinterest...check them out HERE and HERE.  And of course "tweaked" them a bit to fit our style/party theme.

They ate "buggy" food... of "flower-like" place settings.

Even the utensils came in a little bouquets :)

And of course a little "dirt" pudding for dessert.

Not much "junk" at this party...but I did use layers of vintage tablecloths.  Also, blue jars and rubber boots for vases.

Even a few butterflies flying in the chandelier.

And of course the "parting gifts" buckets.

 I think a good time was had by all :)

Sorry, I didn't feel I should post pictures of their lovely little you get the "buggy" faces...also quite cute :)

OK, now on to FAVORITE!

PS...Thanks so very much for your sweet thoughts and prayers for my dad.  He is STILL in the hospital and we continue to  pray for comfort and healing as well as strength and patience for my mom.

Thanks for your patience with me here.  I know my posts lately have been random and few.  I hope to be back to creating soon!!
