DIY No Sew Fabric Pumpkins {and what’s coming soon}

Hey there y’all!! Last week I had the crafting bug. Every once in a while…ok all the time, I get the urge to make something with my hands. I had been itching to make some sweater pumpkins that I had been seeing everywhere, so I headed to the thrift store. I found a sweater that I thought would work and a really cool plaid skirt. The skirt was actually cute, but didn’t fit – but the fabric was awesome! 😉 I brought them home and gathered a few more supplies and got started.

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.

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.
