Is anyone else ready? Fall is just around the corner. While it is still Summer I can't help but wish for Fall to come soon. Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler weather and all the warm colors. I probably won't start decorating until September but I was thinking about when I used to do craft shows. One of my best all time sellers were my pumpkin arrangements. Here is the one that I kept for myself.
I remember when you used to be able to get the styrofoam pumpkins at Hobby Lobby. One year I scored big when I walked in the store there was a shopping cart full of them. The sign said 5 cents each. They had a few dents in them and they were all missing their stems. That didn't bother me. When I make these I cut off the top and just stick flowers into the styrofoam. So of course I snatched the cart up and ended up paying under $2 for all of them.
Here is another Fall arrangement that is one of my favorites that I did a few years ago.
Today we are getting the outside of the covered deck area painted and I am changing the color of the deck boards this weekend. I am hoping that I will get everything done so I can get the furniture back on and start using the deck for the first time this season. I will also be cleaning the patio below the deck and getting that furniture back in place.
And of course we are still working on the master bathroom. Sometimes it is hard to get my husband to work it. We are at the stage of putting the backer board around the tub area and there are many angles to have to try to cut. The shower area is ready to be tiled but I would like to do it all at the same time. Oh well just as long as it is done by Thanksgiving so I can get the tub out of the dining room.
