Hey y'all...we hope that you had a wonderful, long weekend. We are so glad that we had the opportunity to relax at the lake. We ate good food, shared a few special bevs, went on some wild boat rides and most importantly shared a great weekend together.
Jennifer and I even had a little bit of time to create a couple of fall projects. As you know, this is our favorite season. Can we sing out a giant "Woop Woop" as today is the day Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte? Yes, we are those people!
Now, back to business...Being that we were together it was so fun to plan out our crafts, decor and recipes for Fall. Hold onto your hats because we have a lot of fun things in store for y'all!...
I saw someone else post a similar burlap wreath. I was shopping at Walmart and thought, I can do this... I must admit you can buy premade ones for almost the same price, but who wants that?!?All supplies were bought at Walmart. And took about an hour to put it all together.
At the side of my front door there is a wooden panel that has three framed out sections. I have always thought they looked like picture frames but they didn't have anything in them. Early in the summer I decided to fill those panels with something pretty and decorative.

I do a lot of Facebook Live videos and I like to ask my viewers what they would like to see. This fall wreath with a scarecrow was a request from a viewer like you! If there is something you would like to see, let me know! I decided to find
I have always done a lot of entertaining at home but have never had a proper bar. Which meant I was always digging through cupboards to find my bar supplies when friends were over...and not always finding what I was looking for.I finally decided to get a fold up bar cabinet that would give me easy access to everything when I needed it, but not take up much room when I didn't. The problem was that all of the cabinets I liked were really expensive.
We’ve been talking about building a pallet tiki bar for a LONG time. We had this perfect empty spot in our back yard under a palm tree that was just screaming for a bar! My husband dubbed it the TreeKee bar instead of the Tiki Bar since we planned to use the tree as part of the actual bar. Confused? Don’t be. Keep reading to find out how we did it.Step 1 – Measure and map out the area…We played around with a layout and decided we were going to use 2 pallets in the front to make the actual bar area. Each pallet is 4 ft wide which would make it 8 ft across. We felt this would comfortably seat 4 bar stools. We knew we'd need at least 6 posts to hold up the pallets and the roof. As for the roof we planned to put one on, but the tree branches would remain on the roof as part of the ‘tiki look’.
We love recycling something unexpected and making things for our fairy garden. Like this little bridge.

The last 2 times we've been to the beach near my house, we've found a TON of washed up sand dollars. All different sizes. Some as small as a nickel and some much larger. However, the little ones are so delicate that lots of them broke before we got them home. I hated the thought of throwing them all away so I searched the internet for ideas on what to do with broken shells and saw some cute ideas that inspired me. Here is what I came up with...
Storage is an ever-present conversation with my husband in relation to my sewing room - I am rather an untidy person so having enough storage so I can put everything away is a goal. Having moved home I am keen to fit out my sewing room with upcycled items, a) to reduce my resource impact on the earth b) it is cheaper! I spotted this dilapidated sideboard on Facebook selling page for $7, one of the doors needed reattaching and the black gloss paint was peeling, but it fits perfectly between my desk and the wall.
