I have probably mentioned 109 times on this blog alone that I love the fall. I really really love it. As you can see, I have added my Fall To-Do List on the sidebar. Yes, I am a total nerd. I might add that I am amazed at myself for being able to add check marks and change the color of font using html code. I know, I know, I am a computer genius. Whatever.
About a week ago, I wrote a post about my recent house projects with pictures, captions, diy instructions, the whole nine. It's gone. I have no idea where the hell it went. So, I will have to recreate that one at some other time. In the mean time, I thought I would add a photo of one of my "Fall-y" projects to my I-Love-Fall post.
For those of you who read my now missing "Recent Projects" post (maybe 2 of you), I am sorry for repeating myself here. We recently went to Stew Leonard's and bought 4 pumpkins, 3 pretty mums, 2 cornstalks, 1 bail of hay and a partridge in a pear tree (I know, wrong season but it sounded good!) all for under $60! Oh Stewy, I love you. A pumpkin stand down the street from our house is selling pumpkins for $45 each! Who in their right mind would do that? Sorry if I am offending anyone here.
So, I decorated my front steps with all of this amazingly pretty fall stuff and I peek at it every 5 minutes. I know it's a litte weird but this kind of stuff makes me feel good. Moving on.
I also needed a wreath for the front door. I went to Michael's Arts and Craft store and picked up one of those plain stick looking wreaths and some foliage garland. I wrapped the garland around the wreath and secured it with some garbage bag twisties and that was that.
I also hung a "J" in the center of it with some fishing line. The "J" itself is actually pretty cool because D and I did some painting, crackling and antiquing to it and close up it looks very authentic. When we are done with the wreath, I am going to display it in the house.
Anyway, here is the finished product. I think I am going to sit on the front steps with a cup of hot cider and stuff my face with a cider donut from Plasko Farms. That way I can be in my fall heaven and check off 2 of my fall festive to-do items.
Happy Fall, Fall Lovers!
