Dollar Tree

I saw some friends on Instagram talking about making some fall bouquets from faux flowers from the Dollar Tree, so I of course had to go check out the flowers there and this is what I came up with. 


I was pleasantly surprised at how it came out!


My purchase from Sweet Annie’s open house, a sweet little fall gathering.


Have to share a little funny that happened today.  Rusty and I went out to eat at Raising Cane’s. They asked Rusty for his name after he placed our order.  Pretty soon we hear, “Rustic, your order is ready….Rustic.”    I guess you could say he’s a little rustic, lol!

Happy Fall

Hello to the first day of Fall!


Hubby got my scarecrow out and we found us some pumpkins so I think we’re good to go!



I’ve had this fiber optic scarecrow for years and he still works. Every year I plug it in thinking it won’t work but he hasn’t failed me yet!

Sunday Funday


First, I'm going to give you the "sugar coated" post and then I'm going to give you the "reality" post. Sugar coated post--I've told my hubby many times how I would like some cornstalks to decorate with. Today he tells me he is going to put some up for me. What a sweetheart, he's always willing to make my "wants" come true, bless his heart! Ok, now here's the reality post--Hubby tells me he's going to put some cornstalks up for me so I excitedly go out to help him. It's right in the sun and it's hotter than hot. He's a fussin, cussin and sweatin the whole time! He's complaining that he is going to have to go without lunch because it's about time for the game (Vikings) to start! I'm out there rolling with laughter cause he can say the funniest things when he's mad! The neighbors probably thought we were crazy. But in all honesty, he really is a sweetheart and one of the reasons I love this guy so much is he is constantly making me laugh! He really does always try to make my "wants" come true even if he's not always crazy about some of them, lol!

Owl Makeover

I purchased the bigger owl last year and I just love him! I had this smaller owl and he was red, white and blue.


I wish I would have thought to take a before picture but I guess I was in such a hurry to transform him I forgot all about taking a picture. Anyway, he kind of looked like this one only his eyes were bright red and his body was navy blue.


So I thought why not paint him to resemble the one I had, so that is what I did and now I love him too!  It’s amazing what a little paint will do!

A Little More Fall…

Went to a Chalk Couture party. Never had heard of that before, but it was a lot of fun. I made the Pumpkin Spice sign you see hanging here.


Love my letterboard! As always, it’s the little things that I get so excited about, hehe!

Asher decided to add a little fall touch of his own to the coffee table. Feel free to replicate his idea!


Awhile back I found this cute bag at Michaels at 80% off so it was $5.00.  Their flowers were 50% off I believe.  I shopped around and found some pretty ones but they were pretty pricey even at 50% off so I put them back and kept looking. Found some for $6 and some were even $1.49 so 50% off of that I could handle.


This time of year I also enjoy burning candles! My favorite scents are baking or coffee smells. Mmmmmm, they smell so good. This is what I am currently burning…


Interesting name I know, but to be honest with you, I do like nuts in my banana bread! Smile

Fall Decorating

I love to decorate for fall. I love this time of year, the feeling in the air, and the beautiful colors that autumn brings. It just has one big fault and that’s that it doesn’t last long enough!  Jasper always likes to get in on the decorating too!



Found my battery operated candle.


Got my little Scentsy Prairie pitcher warmer going!





It’s a lot of work bringing everything out, I even had to take breaks!! Never thought I would see the day where I would ask myself, “Do I really want to bring that out, I’ll just have to put it back.”  I do enjoy it all once it’s done though, so it is worth it. Have you decorated yet? 

Fall Blessings,
