Fall decorating

So I finally got some of my fall decor out and set up. I found this idea on another blog, of course I read so many of them that I can't remember where I saw it. But here's my version...


and here's a pic of my collection of keeps growing as I find more unique ones everyday.

Weekend baking

I decided to try out some cookies I've been drooling over for a few weeks. I got the recipe here...

Here's how mine came out...


They are DELICIOUS! I had to make myself go to bed last night so I would stop eating them! I brought them to work and have so far resisted them. But I'm sure by the time those 3 pm munchies hit I'll attack what is left.

Fall wreath

So I got another project (almost) off my to do list.

In the midst of all my decor/craft blog reading, I stumbled upon a bunch of fall wreaths and decided our new house needed a fall wreath. So I went to my home away from home (Hobby Lobby) and picked up these things...


And this is how it turned out...




I haven't decided which end is up so I was trying to get some different shots of it.

I hot glued everything to the wreath. I think I'll use some ribbon to hang it on the door. I bought the raffia and wire and I didn't even end up using them.

wreath = $2 (orig $3.99, 1/2 off)
flowers = $10 (orig $19.99, 1/2 off)
yellow babys breath thingys = $3.50 (orig $6.99, 1/2 off)

I looked at some wreaths at HL while I was getting all this and they were priced at $50-$70!
