That's one spooky tree!

This project was so much fun! Susie posted about this project on her blog and I knew I had to make one too. We took the kids out to a nearby park for a nature walk to find a 'spooky' branch for our tree. It was a beautiful day and a fun little adventure for us all. I had all the items I needed on hand for this project except for the crows (Dollar Store) and the branch (nature trail :) . The little lanterns were from the dollar bin at Target last year, I just spray painted them black. Love 'em! For specific steps on how to do this project be sure to check out Susie's blog. She's a very talented person. Love so many of her ideas!

Fall is in the air....

And I couldn't be more excited! I like apparently many fellow bloggers LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fall. It's my absolute favorite time of year.
I love so much about fall; fall clothes, fall colors, the smell of burning leaves, KU football season, Halloween, crisp evenings, yummy cold weather foods, cozy cable knit throws, pumpkins, mums, cute jackets. I could go on and on but I'll spare you. :)

I have started some fall decorating and thought I'd share with you. As always everything is a work in progress!
My latest unbelievable Target clearance deal is the big silver lantern you see in the first picture. I've been ogling them for months now and just the other day I found 2 (the only two left) marked down to 5.98. Yes, that's right girls, only 5.98! They were originally 30.00 and they are absolutely GORGEOUS!
