In a post a little while back I wrote about some things I'd like to try. And me and my girl made it happen. Well, one of the things.....fall leaves. I usually enjoy trying to add a handmade thing around the house here and there to make the holidays special, and I was getting a little bummed that it hadn't happened yet. So last night after we had a cleaning frenzy (did I mention we're hosting Thanksgiving?), we got our craft on. And I love our leaves! To recap, they were made from melting crayons between wax paper.
I love how each one it different, just like in nature. We hung some above our table, and put a few above our door.
I also really wanted to put a gratitude wall somewhere. Something where when the mood stuck we could put a note of something we're grateful for. I had lots of cute and creative ideas of how to do it, but in the end I just went for easy and bought some fallish color post-its. Wah-la.....
Alright, well I think that's it for any new fall or thanksgiving decor. But since I'm at it, here's a new little area in my house. Well, not totally new, but I've added a few new treasures. It makes me happy!
|I got these at a little store in Santa Barbara. Wish I remembered the name, but aren't they cute?!|
