In honor of the first day of fall I bought a garland of fall leaves from a local thrift store. I have big plans for this little $2.oo purchased. Stayed tuned to find out what these plans are!!
I have been spending a lot of time obsessing over reading different decorating/crafting blogs. I came across this cute little idea that I knew I needed in my life. Only bad thing… I have looked at so many blogs, I can’t link to it because now I can’t find it!** As soon as I saw it I knew I had all the materials. It was so easy that I did it Sunday night. At 10:00. I am a night person, I can’t help it.
This was so easy to make and it was pretty fun. I had to stop by Joann’s to get some paper when I got off work today. I wanted a light soft green, but after putting it together it didn’t look right. Jason thought it had the look of a dollar bill! so after getting the boys from school, I tried again and I love the look the yellow and red has. I normally would not have chosen that, but I’m glad I went out on a limb. Fred chose the location it should go and it works perfectly.
**I found the link, and think if you take a little trip over to Little Miss Momma you will enjoy her blog as much as I do. Hurry go look!
I do not consider myself a decor guru, but I do know what I like and what I do not. The problem is most things that I see fall somewhere in between. I absolutely refuse to spend money or time on something that is almost or close to what I want. I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to things in my home, I guess. I want what I want. Period. So, because of this I have a lot of bare walls in my home, patiently waiting for the perfect thing to pop out and get me. Most of the time I am completely content with this attitude. Other times it drives me insane. We have lived in this house 2 1/2 years and the wall above our bed still sits blank. It’s starting to get on my nerves. I have an idea:
The only problem, I don’t know what pictures to choose. What theme? I have a few ideas, but I’m not sure. It has to be something both Jason and I like and want to look at. Something that makes us both feel calm and comfortable. Nothing to busy, that gives me a headache. Preferably no predominately orange, red, or yellow. Those colors make me annoyed. That cuts down the possiblities by, well, a LOT! So I’ve spending a lot of time searching different websites trying to get ideas. Somewhere along the way I decided we also need a new comforter. This choice also plans on killing me. I plan on posting some of the ideas I come across here. If you can think of anything, feel free to help me out!!
