Welcome Fall



Hello again, before I get started I have to tell you about my weekend. Initially, I had planned to start my "welcome fall project." I had a list of things I wanted to tackle; like wash windows, pressure wash the sidewalk, and revamp some old wreaths. Now you know that didn't happen, right. Saturday I woke up to the sound of hissing water.We had a leak in the bathroom wall. ugh! Hubby turned the water off , but he couldn't fix the problem until late that evening. He had to work. So what did I do Saturday, absolutely nothing. Sunday was a no go as well, it rained all day long. So, what's a girl to do?... I turned lemons into lemonade and I tackled the projects I could do inside.


I really wanted new wreaths this fall, but you know me; I didn't want to spend any money. So I decided to re-purpose some old wreaths I had in the attic. Here's what I did. I removed all the floral stems from the wreath pictured above, to the wreath in the picture below. 


I really like this wreath but it's kinda sparse, so I beefed it up by adding the floral stems I removed from wreath 1 onto this wreath. Assembly was very simple, I placed the stems where I thought they would look best and adhered them with floral wire. Then I made the bow.



These are the florals that were removed from the wreath in pic 1. I had to retire the berries that were closest to the ribbon. (see above)
Can you guess why? LOL


Drum Roll Please!!!! Here is the finished product. Now I can scratch 1 thing off my Fall to do list. Happy Fall Yall!!!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
