F is for Fall...

It's also for Ferguson :)
I made this candy corn F door hanging today from a plain wood letter from Hobby Lobby.
I already had the paint and on hand, the letter itself was about $9, and the flower was 3 for $1.  $10 bucks ain't bad if I do say so myself!
When the season changes, I'll just break out the paint again and have a new theme for my letter.

The Dollar Isle does it again!

I'm over due for some updates around here, so I'm just going to jump back in like it hasn't been over a year and a half since I've posted. 

While making a quick stop into Target the other day, those tricky retailers got me with the impulse section. The Dollar Isle had sucked me in! But how can you feel guilty for spending a buck?

Here are my "splurge" purchases.
That $5 spent was well worth it! It got me excited about fall and motivated to do some decorating.
So my hallway went from that, to this.

And I also got a little Pintresting project done.
I used some scraps left over from a project I was working on in Grady's room.
I did a quick coat of paint in orange that I had around the house and found a branch in the back yard to cut down and hot glue to the boards for stems.
I didn't like the orange by itself so I rubbed the edges with some brown paint.
Finishing touches with some ribbon and raffia.
