In a Fall kinda mood....

Hi Bloggerettes!

I've been in a fall kinda mood, how about you?   The weather has been so nice with cool nights and mornings.  It's great sleeping without the A/C!  There is just something about the feel of fall that makes you want to get out the orange!

Since I've been in a fall mood, I decided to whip up a few burlap wreaths that are kinda fall like.

Even gave the front porch a touch of fall.

I also whipped up a pillow...



I picked up these fabulous chippy, shabby shutters while in West Virginia.  They were a dark green, so I dry brushed them with a white piant and I like how they look....

I found this adorable wooden stool at an antique shop.  It's so darn cute.  Check out the little plaque that says, "Junk Dealer."


Okee, dokee.....that's it for now.
So get out there and make, create, build, sew, cook, paint, repurpose, write, fill up your booth, give lots of hugs and I love you's, photograph something and find something and share it with us!

~~hugs~~
Sissie

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Sissie, you have such a great ability to find great things and make great things. You really are a very talented lady. Everything you come up with always looks well thought out and well made, such as the wreaths and pillows. I saw the post of your sister's home and I think talent must be a family trait. She has decorated her home in a lovely, cozy style that I love.------Shannon
