Fall Wreath

Here is the fall wreath inspired by Thrifty Decor Chick. I auditioned it inside the house on a few different walls but liked it best on the front door. That front door is what sold me on this house. It is an 8 foot door (standard doors are 7 feet). The front porch is at an angle and makes it difficult for decorating. Plus I like to decorate very symetrically and the porch is just not even on both sides. Any ways, hope to add more deocrations to the front porch and post soon.

Thrifty Finds

These are two of my most recent thrifty finds. The top one I got for $2.50 and the bottom one for 50 cents. Chaching!

I was thinking of putting some small pumpkins in the top one and some qtips or cotton balls in the bottom one and using it for the bathroom. Not very original I know. Any suggestions?

Wait til you see my next post with pics from a wreath i made. Inspired from Thrifty Decor Chick.

Ooh, it's hard to photograph glass.


Gotta love these rub-on letters

I've been eyeing these rub-on letters. Seems they are everywhere. But I found some at my local Hobby Lobby store and purchased them this weekend. I think it took longer to open the package then to apply the lettering. Hoping to add some more family pictures to this wall (hint, hint Kari, Jenny and Mom). Oh, this is in the foyer of our home. It is the first thing you see when you walk enter. Most of the frames I purchased either at garage sales or thrift stores and spray painted them black. I especially love the center one. It was one of those frames that has a mat with 50 openings! Seriously? Who has a whole bunch of 2" photos? So I purchased the larger mat 16x20 with an 8x10 opening and I LOVE IT!!! I think I've spent maybe $20 on all of the frames/mats/paint and new lettering. Pretty impressive if I might say so myself.
