Move over fall....Winter here we come!

 We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at our house this year, and I really would like to decorate for Christmas after that. The kids have already started bugging about getting the tree up.
I am seriously thinking about it, but we just have so much going on right now.
I did put out a few things so far.
 I think they are more winter decorations then say Christmas.

Our tree will be going where the ladder is this year. I think I may leave the crates but not sure how much room we will have.
My dear hubby cut up some tree stumps for me and sliced up a small log that
I put in a glass jar.
He is having a lot of fun decorating the house with me.

This week I am sharing on
Marty's blog for 191st Inspire me Tuesday.

Rustic bench and Star from hubby and daughter

Looks like my 8 year old daughter is a lot more like her Daddy then I thought.
She spent the weekend outside with him in the garage working on some projects for me.
I showed him my Pottery Barn catalog and the sweet bench from WI logs. Sure is a beauty, but for 700.00, I can pass!
So the two went out to the garage and brought me back this in a matter of hours!!
I love it so much and I am so proud of my daughter. She put so much love and dedication into this
project, just like her Daddy!!
She even thought of a name for their workshop,
Maddy and Daddy's Workshop!!
So cute!!
I love these guys so much!!
They also made for me the Star that I adored from the PB catalog as well. 

Be sure to pop over and say hello to Marty at
For her 190th Inspire me Tuesday!!
Wow!!! Thank you Marty!!

DIY growth chart and a cutie!

My little guy helped me show off the DIY growth chart we made this weekend.
It was super easy and the best part is I can move it around where ever we want.
We bought a 1x 6x 6 board from Lowes, stained it and marked it. I used the cricut for perfect numbers.
It was just under 10.00 in total.
We also made the knock off PB sawhorse table by putting together some stools and adding some wood boards I stained in Early American stain.  This is also can easily be moved around if need be.

I am in the process of doing faux butcherblock counters in my kitchen. I was hoping to have them done by Thanksgiving, but just not sure about that time frame now.
Wish me luck!
