Sometimes "life" happens and you just have to roll with it. I had such good intentions and high hopes to get that night stand done and linked up to the Roadkill Rescue Party. Ummmm yeah, that didn't happen...obviously. The kiddos got sick last night so I had to abandon the project halfway through. But stay tuned for the before and after reveal. I'm not making any promises of what day it will be done, but it WILL get done. Just let me finish cleaning poop and vomit first.
In the midst of all the craziness, I had to run an errand to my mom's house. And what did she have on her table? A beautiful fall arrangement.... a bundle of wheat and some gorgeous pumpkins and gourds. On August 31st people! Let me just tell you...I love this woman who birthed me. Everything good and creative and beautiful that is in me, came from her! And apparently I get my early holiday decorating enthusiasm from her. I come by it honestly. So, as soon as I got home I had to add a few fall touches to my decor. I only put out 2 of my 23 white pumpkins. I didn't want to go overboard or anything...you know?
Inside my birdcage I put a vintage glass cake stand with a pumpkin, a furry green pinecone, and some gorgeous shells my dad gave me. Next to the birdcage is a ceramic pumpkin that I found at the thrift store last week. And since it is September the first and I am a crazy holiday decorating fool...I will continue to put out my fall decor this week. Next up is my front door wreath. I made it last year, but I have more little goodies to add to it. Look for it later this week. Squash, and feathers, and pumpkins...oh my!
