Pretty Autumn Vignettes

I'm kind of in love with this white and cream scene.  LOVE the hydrangea!  So autumn. 
Another pale color scheme for fall.  I love the metallic pumpkins and the antique look of everything!  So pretty and elegant! 
Lovely little place setting.  I especially love the little branch laid across the plate.  Love the use of pumpkins, too.  Pumpkins are my favorite fall accessory. 
Lovely fall vase fillers.  I love the ring of leaves tied around that small one with twine!  Cute idea.  Love the layered look in the large one, too. 
The terracotta pots in this set get me every time!  I love the warmth they bring into this white kitchen!  Loving those bright flowers, and the urn filled with gourds.  And pies just speak of autumn to me.

Halloween Costumes

Here's a collection of costume ideas from my archives.
cutest little cherub. 
love the headdress!! 
Curious George and company - The Man in the Yellow Hat and a banana - this is a really cute idea for the whole family!
And here's a really easy monkey costume!!

Thought this was a cute idea - just cut out the bottom of a laundry basket and fill it with bubbles! Bubble Bath. 

Cute little octopus. 
Another great family idea - Peter Pan and company - Cap'n hook and Tinkerbell.  I think Wendy, Mr. Smee and Tigerlilly would be great additions as well. 
Love this robin hood costume!! 
And super fun Where the Wild Things Are little boy.

Thread Ball Pumpkin

I'm not exactly sure what these balls of thread are called, but I think this is a super cute and easy idea!  Just stick a stick in the center of it, wrap some twine around to create the pumpkin "stripes" and attach a leaf and some curly wire to the top.  Voila!  Pumpkin!  I think it would be super cute with a ball of yarn as well.  Love fun and easy ideas like this!

Beautiful Fall

It's here. 
That most beautiful time of the year.
When the world turns into gold. 
And I fall in love all over again.
Time to enjoy the cooler weather.
Time to go for a drive.
Time to soak in the vibrant light. 
Time to step outside
And take walks in the beautiful glow. 
When everything feels cozy. 
And we are reminded of earth's bounty. 
Time to enjoy.

"Fall" Pumpkin

This is seriously adorable.  And here's how you make one of your very own: 
Start with a fake pumpkin. 
Tape off the stem. 
Then, stick some 3D stickers on the pumpkin.  
Spray paint the whole thing in a color of your choice. 
And then, she made it super cute by adding some burlap flowers. 
LOVE these!!  I might wanna make a necklace using some burlap. :)
Talk about adorable!!!  And I'm also in love with the dried hydrangeas in that bowl and the tall vase full of tiny pumpkins and pinecones!!
Seriously - how cute!  Visit {Shanty 2 Chic} for all the details and for more fun ideas.

Cutest Garbage Ever!

Yep, this is a garbage.  Amazing, right!?  I want one!!! 
Apparently, she bought this thing, but I've never seen one for sale anywhere, so I'm thinking I might need to have hubby make one for me at some point.  It looks simple enough.  In fact, you could probably just purchase a cabinet and change the direction the door opens!  Then, just add a stand at the bottom for the garbage can to rest on.  Love this idea! 
Seriously, have you ever seen a cuter garbage!? 
I mean, you can even decorate it!!  I love it!  Visit {Gail's Decorative Touch} for more info and great ideas!
