A little treat for the trickers...

Since we are living in our first home, we will get trick or treaters for the first time this weekend! I wanted to decorate a little bit for them.... So here is what I did today!

I bought these supplies at Michael's...

A plain black wreath, chipboard pumpkins, 2 Halloween ornaments
and some ribbon to hang the wreath!
Total cost: $12

So I could make this!

Fall Decor

Fall has FINALLY arrived at our house....

We spent some time today at our local Farmer's Market & loaded up the car

with a HUGE yellow mum, 3 pumpkins and 1 perfect hay bale!

So, we started with the yard.... and got a lot accomplished.

Step 1. Remove the Sweet Potato Vines that have so beautifully

taken over our flower beds- CHECK



Step 2. Add a touch of Fall to the yard- CHECK

Step 3. Plant gorgeous monkey grass in the beds to stick around

until the spring returns- Coming tomorrow, I hope :)

Check back soon for the monkey grass pictures! Happy Fall & have fun decorating!

New Living Room Charis

So, I was flipping through the pages of a People Magazine today and imagine my surprise when I read that I have the "knock off" chair in Tori Spelling's living room! She is so cute & now I know I must have OK taste... If she can have something close to mine, then I am doing alright! Right?!?

In her living room, she has these beautiful golden chairs.... very much like these chairs that are in my living room. :)
