Friday Ramblings

This week has been busy. Honestly since school started I can say that every week has been busy. Yes, we are down from 4 kids to 2 but neither one of them are driving yet. We are missing our extra drivers that are away at college. 😉  We really do limit their activities, but between school, church, and their one or extra-curriculars we are just going all the time. We have become very intentional about making time for rest, and that has helped a lot. We are hoping to even fit in a date night this weekend!

Long story short, I don’t have a project to share with you today. So, instead I’m going to share a few random things from this week. Sorry in advance for the iphone pics.  😎

The Making of a Fall Mantel

I must confess that my mantel décor has stayed exactly the same since late winter/early spring. Once the Christmas decorations came down, it actually stood blank for quite some time…  😳

Then finally I couldn’t stand the blankness any longer so I threw a few spring-ish things up there. Keeping very neutral and basic knowing in my heart that it might very well be that way for a while. And, I was right. Here is where is stood a week ago.

Bringing Wood Bowls Back to Life

Hey there friends! Hope you are doing awesome! Things have been crazy as usual around here. Fall semester = all the activities. Each week it seems a new thing is added to the agenda, which can leave this mama a bit frazzled. We keep busy, but really do try our best to not be too busy. And, we definitely intentionally take time to rest! Think about it, do you do that? Your body and your brain craves it. Give yourself (and your family) permission to sit. and. do. nothing. for a few hours one afternoon. You won’t regret it I promise! Ok, encouragement and challenge given, let’s move on to today’s topic – thrifted wood bowls.

A couple of weeks ago while thrifting I stumbled across some wood bowls.

Setting the Table for Fall

I’m still working on getting our house all ready for fall. I’m not sure why I’m dragging my feet, I LOVE fall! I think my project list keeps calling my name ahead of decorating. 😉 As I was looking through posts from last year, I realized that I never shared our Thanksgiving table from last year. Again, probably because right before Thanksgiving I was knee-deep in an ORC makeover.

So, I thought why not share it now! In case maybe you are starting to think in the direction of Thanksgiving or maybe you are just looking for ideas for a fall centerpiece.
