More Touches of Fall
Yesterday afternoon I headed to our Dollar Tree to see what autumn/harvest/fall decorations I could find. I not only got myself some new pumpkins, but I also got my girls some too. I love them and I loved the price!
Aren't these just too cute! A perfect touch for our small guest bathroom.
The next three are on our dining room buffet; I love them because they are plastic, though you can't tell by looking at them.
Many of you will recognize this craft from Pinterest; I got together with close friends for our monthly craft group and made two. I loved making them and think they would be a fun project for kiddos that are very skilled at crafts. I did find it was hard to get the circles to line up perfectly, but I think they are still cute!
Here is the larger one; they can be made in three sizes but since my hubby was just getting home when I was finishing number two, I choose not to make the smallest one.
This last photo is of a painting my father-in-law painted almost 30 yrs ago. He was a gifted artist and this was a new technique he used-somehow using wax with the paint. We got this painting last spring, when we were clearing out the family home. I love it here,especially during this season.
Our week has been so busy with getting all the house repairs done from the hail storm in August and dealing with our insurance company. Will I be thankful when the work is all finished! This afternoon, I get my mammogram and next week my bone density scan. The following week, I meet with my doctor for my annual-can we say fun, seriously, I've gotten to where I really dislike going to the doctor. After my mammo this afternoon, we take my car in for an oil change. Tonight we will be gathering for dessert to celebrate the three birthdays.
I hope you have a great day and find things to be thankful for.
