Just for fun

 I wish I had amazing photography skills
knew everything was to know about editing pictures.

 But I don't!
Everything I do,
at home or on my blog
Is just for fun!
Takes me away from reality and gives me something to focus my energy on!
Because what would life be
if we didn't know how to have fun!

 I thought I would pop on over to my blog and post a few pictures.
Since I love fall so much, I have been busy crafting and decorating my home!
 Old Time Pottery had these sweet burlap pumpkins and mason jar for only 1.99!
Such a great deal!
And here is a small corner in the family room that is just so cozy and comfy!
Especially at night with a warm and snug blanket and candles all around!
Fall is so much fun!!

Wood wall on a budget and mini baking center

We wanted to do something different in the living wall.
We hiave high ceilings and this space really needing something to make it pop!
Hubby and I bought furring strips from Lowes for about 1.30 a piece, stained and
nailed the boards to the wall.
All this for under 30.00 !!
It is also where our Christmas tree usually goes. I know it is going to look great this year!

I also created a little baking station while I was up late one night!

Where do you get your inspiration from?
Blogs? Magazines? Pinterest?

I have always enjoyed reading blogs.
There are so many great one out there with
so many tips and tutorials.
I am always coming up with a honey do list for my guy!

Shanty to Chic

Is a great source of inspiration for me!
In fact here is my version of the wine rack they recently featured on their blog!
It looks amazing and I am so happy with it!
I even used the printables they have on the blog!
It was easy and fun to make!

Hubby put a new frame my old chalkboard and it looks great too!!

I have been wanted a lantern in my kitchen so hubs made this one for me for 6.00.
It looks great in the kitchen!!
This picture doesn't do it justice!!

Much of my inspiration has been from blogs and I am so happy with the end

Christmas Home Tour

 Just wanted to share a few more pictures of our home at Christmas time.
I love the handmade stockings my grandmothers dear friend made for my whole family.
Nothing like home made!!

 My little guy loves the camera. I got lucky and was able to get this pic of him next to the family tree.

 The adorable Christmas plates were a Walmart find. Just under 2.00 they are a great deal!

                                      Hot cocoa is great! Just not when it is 80 degrees outside!

               A few gingerbread men snuck into the kitchen this year again.
They are just so cute and cheery!!

Thank you for stopping by to visit.

Christmas in the den

Here are a few snapshots of some of my Christmas decor.We love this time of year!
Although it is hot in the south, the leaves are now falling.
There is always so much to do with the kids.
 We have visited a local musuem all decorated for Christmas, saw Santa, and this weekend we plan on
going to our towns Christmas on Main Street, and take the kids on a train ride through the park to Santa's workshop.
We are so excited about the holidays!!

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.
You can pop over and say hello to Marty right here
