I am in between quarters in school right now and enjoying my break from the books this week. I studied very hard last quarter and came away with an A ! Thank you God! I really couldn't have done it without His continued guidance and support. HE is the One who is carrying me through this new journey I am on! Studying and retaining information at my age isn't as easy as it used to be! It is a constant struggle and I have to keep my face in the books constantly just to keep my head above water!
I am very happy for the needed break and have been having fun this week pulling out all of the decor for Fall. I don't have very much, and what I DO have will probably get moved around a bit before I am happy with it, but it has been fun to look at my old favorites, and new things that I have acquired from my trips to the thrift store.
I found this beautiful vase while at the Goodwill a few weeks ago and knew that I wanted to fill it with Sunflowers. Faux flowers fit into my lifestyle better at this time - this adds a little dash of color by my front door!
This little vignette sits atop a table in our entry way. ALL items were thrift store finds. I filled the glass candle holder with black and northern beans to add some color (an idea I learned from a crafty blogger friend) and stuck a candle inside.
I fell in love with this little guy - it looks dusty - but it isn't - I may have to paint this all one color because I am not sure if I LIKE the faux dusty look :-)
This tray is another great new find from the Goodwill. I love it! Just added some pinecones and candles - instant warmth!
I LOVE to decorate my home on a budget - why pay full price when you can make it look warm and homey for half the amount that you see in the stores and big name catalogs? It has become a hobby of mine to try to make my house a home for less - which THEN gives me more money that I can spend on my kiddos. Works for me!
It has been fun visiting all of your blogs this week! I look forward to getting caught up with you all and thank you for stopping by to visit - I enjoy getting to know each and every one of you and consider you all friends!
Blessings to you,
