It’s November friends! How did that happen?? Well, I guess it’s time to start thinking about how I might set the table for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner! I almost always change up the napkins, and more often than not I make them myself. Over the years I’ve had mostly solid napkins, but I thought this year I might try something different. I have really come to love using drop cloths as an inexpensive fabric. I have made several tablecloths over the years, so I figured it would make a great napkin as well.
Oh my goodness friends!! How are you? I had no intention of being away for so long, but man. Life. I have decided to start subbing at our church preschool this year. So, that has caused me to change up my home schedule a bit, and I am still adjusting.
I had planned to have this post ready for you last week, but when I got ready to make the wreath and photograph it, everything went south. I could not find my wire (which apparently I had given to my mom an accident), and then my camera battery was dead. womp, womp
So, here I am, a week later sharing a super easy project with you! A simple fall hoop wreath. I hope you like it enough to run out and get some supplies to make your own!!
Hey there! I hope your week is going well so far! Have you ever been in a place where you look at something and you’re just tired of it? It’s been fine for forever, but today, not so much. Ya, that’s kind of where I’ve been with the curb appeal, or rather lack there of, of our home. We have been working hard on the inside for a while now, but the outside has been pretty much ignored. Kept up, but not changed.
Hey friends!! I hope you enjoyed your extra-long weekend! My daughter was home from college so that made my weekend awesome!! I don’t know about you, but I have been in a bit of a funk watching all of the news from Houston. The devastation is truly unreal. If you are from that area or have people you know from there, know that our prayers are with you as you process this and work through the rebuilding. Much love to you Texas. I also put my oldest on a plane last week to head back to Boston for his SENIOR year of college. Honestly, it seems like yesterday that we were moving him in for the first time. I’m so proud of him, and thankful for all the opportunities God has blessed him with over the last three years, but it’s never easy to say goodbye. I needed a distraction, so when I got home from the airport I dove into a craft.
I’m back today to share with you how I upholstered the top of our 2×4 farmhouse style bench! I have always wanted to try tufted upholstery, but was a little intimidated by the look. I decided to give it a go on something small – our new bench. It was definitely a two-person project (at least the actual upholster part), but it wasn’t as hard as I thought it might be.
