Hello Friends! It’s been so hard to hold my excitement for a day of the week + and I know it’s crazy + but why are people so damn happy about that day [I’m one of those people]. I’ll tell you why + time to unplug + to spend extra hours with your family + to rest and relax + to tackle house projects + or to just do nothing. Last weekend I did nothing + and I wanted to hit a thrift store but that didn’t happen + and maybe that was for the best because I got everything else done.
This week has been filled with meetings + and rain … but we did have a little break in the weather [even though it was hot and muggy]. Sunlight for me is a gift from above because that means I get to take pictures. I have a lighting kit but that’s so much trouble. If anyone were to ask me … “What The One Thing You Need for a Great Photo”… my answer to would always be natural lighting + and a good lens. I got to take a few of my dolly’s [yes my other hobby] + and some extra pictures for Instagram. Here is this past week in my rear view …
I’m also excited to hit Michaels this weekend to get some paint + and look at their blanket yarn. I have this idea in my head that I want to hand-make most of my Holiday gifts this year + but that’s a whole other post. I finally got around to finishing my painted dipped frames [see above] + and now I want to make some ombre pinecones + I just have to figure out the colors I want to use. Looking to work on some fall DIY’s this weekend … check these out to get you started.
1. Boho Hanging Ring + The Sorry Girls
2. Pastel Pumpkin Faces + The House That Lars Built
3. Fall Chalk Board Sign + I Heart Naptime
4. Fall Leave Garland + The Sweet Occassion
5. Pumpkin Spice Syrup + Ernest Home Co.
Next week is the beginning of October where I’m starting my own “31 Days of Halloween”. My mid-week and DIY post will mostly focus on all the fun DIY’s and good eats for the season. I hope everyone has had a good end to the week + and I want to thank you for stopping by today. Whether you spent 3 minutes or 20 … I appreciate the love. Don’t forget to “like” + “comment” + and “follow”. — Peace —
