Since Halloween has ended and my sweet little “boo” is out, I felt I needed a little “thanks” to decorate my door before all of the Christmas decorations come out! With a quick and easy little homemade bunting, I was able to spice up my felt yarn wreath.
I cut out a few triangles, wrote/cut out the word “thanks” onto some leftover felt, glued them onto my triangles, and then strung them along some embroidery thread.
The bunting totally doesn’t match my wreath,…but I think it was a sweet quick fix before the Christmas decorations take over our home! And it’s pretty cute.
Just a little “thanks”…to enjoy (and remind me!) every time I walk through our front door.
I know these guys are all over the internet,… but I had to share mine!
LOVED creating the different flowers,…it got addicting!
Such a fun, easy, and simple craft… so satisfying!
Thanksgiving Day was fun,..
Fun to set the table.
Fun to make place cards for each guest (excuse the two napkins at Grandma’s place, I was trying to figure out where to place them and I’m completely indecisive…)
Fun to create special place mats for the little girls…
Fun to see the cousins together.
Fun to cook and fun to eat!
I’m SO jealous of Jen’s cute garage sale finds! Check them out! The west coast needs some yard sales like these!
I wish I could say I’m a great garage sale shopper, but I’m not. The truth is that I can rarely get out of the house in time to find the best stuff at a garage sale. By the time I’m ready, I figure most of the good stuff is gone, so I just don’t go. But one day I saw a sign in the neighborhood and decided to act on it. The sign mentioned something about antiques and that piqued my interest. Jeff and I followed the signs around the neighborhood and finally came upon a treasure.
It was a lady who used to own an antique store selling a ton of items in her front yard. There were some nice, expensive pieces, but I had my eyes on the cheapos.
So I found these 3 vintagey items and made my way to the seller hoping I could get a deal. The lady was oohing and ahhing over Graham. She even asked to hold him. And I of course thought I could do a little negotiating. That’s why God gave us cute babies, right? She wouldn’t budge much. I guess I was a little inexperienced with the whole bargaining thing, and she could probably tell. How could she not go down on her prices when I was letting her, a complete stranger, hold my baby?
- Not sure what this was supposed to be, but I use it to hold magazines.
- I still got a deal (or so I thought), and now I have a few cool pieces to add to my home. I could really get into this whole garage sale thing if I always found stuff like this!
