I posted this morning about how I used a felted sweater that I found at a thrift store to make this adorable headband for Lady V. The rest of that sweater became a fall wreath for my front door. I really like the rustic look of the grapevine wreath, twine and wool. It definitely perks up our entry way and makes things look all cozy & fall-like!

My daughter is obsessed with all things crafty. There isn’t a package of glitter glue she has met that she hasn’t fallen in love with.

I admit that I am really not one that gets that excited about Valentine’s Day. I am also pretty anti-store-bought cards. But, the mantle was in desperate need of some love, so this is what I came up with. Our fireplace used to be really nasty red brick, until one late night my poor husband finally caved and agreed to get out the white paint. Days later (he was not amused) it was finally a beautiful white! The mantle is a beam from my husbands grandparents barn on their farm. It was saved when the barn was burned down and I love the history of it, and the look of course. Continue reading
