Am I the only one who hasn’t started finished her fall decorating yet?
I was starting to think I wasn’t going to have a new fall wreath on our front door at all this year.
And to make it even better they were having a 50 cent sale on hats, mitts, and scarves. Yay! Yay!
The timing could not have been more perfect.
It smells fantastic, sort of like cherry candy… and those pumpkin seed thingies really do look like pumpkin seeds.
I also used this lovely scarf in my repurposed owl fall door decor project.
On Friday I took a ME day. (And no I wasn’t playing hooky, lol… it was a vacation day off work). ME stands for Mine Entirely. Woo hoo!! The whole day… all to myself!
Now that I had this fabulous scarf I was on a mission to get my wreath done.
I wrapped the scarf around this $1 wreath that I already had… and then I sat and drank a cup of tea while looking out the window… and then I sat with Leo on my lap while looking out the window.
Apparently I love looking out the window while thinking about what to do next. My wreath needed a little something more, but it had to be something simple.
Well, nothing came to me so I hung it on my craft room door, decided I would think about it tomorrow, and went to play with other projects.
Then I went to the Salvation Army thrift store on Saturday and found this large bag of raffia for $2. Another Yay!!!
And here’s what I came up with to finish off the wreath.
I made a very simple bow out of the raffia, tied it to the wreath using a piece of raffia, tucked some faux leaves in behind, and added a few faux berries.
And my new fall wreath is done. A final Yay!!
Sometimes, for reasons totally unknown to me, fate decides to shine on me… putting me in the just the right place at just the right time to find just the right things.
I hope fate shines on you today, thanks so much for reading!
