Happy Fall



Hi everyone!!!! Sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately. Getting three teenage boys back into the swing of school, homework, and waking up at 6:00am has proven to be a bit more than I could handle. Anyone have a xanax?



It feels like Fall! I've caught the fall decorating bug and am buzzing around changing everything for the coming season. I wanted to share my recycled Pumpkin Topiary with you all. It's been around for 3 Autumns and I think this may be it's last. The excessive use of hot glue is finally showing. I fluffed it up with a few new fall picks, a bit more moss and gave it a go. We will see if it will weather the Fall wind storms. I may be chasing after it in my bunny slippers at 6:30 in the morning. The neighbors can only hope.



I hope everyone is enjoying the new school year and hopefully you can feel the promise of Fall in the tiny bit of crispness in the air.

Wow, your topiary is really pretty despite its age! I love the urn you have it in. Welcome back!

Love that topiary. I so want to make 2 of these for my front entry area. I just need to find some urns. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Hi Aimee! I know what you mean about school. I thought life would calm down with the start of school for us, but it's just the opposite!

Love your topiary. That's a great idea. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying the lone urn I saw on clearance the other day!

Welcome back Aimee! You've been missed so much! Love your topiary, I wouldn't have known it's age if you hadn't told *smiles* I wonder if after this season if you could try painting the pumpkins white? would that hide the hot glue marks? Although to be honest I couldn't see them, I think it's gorgeous. *smiles*

Very pretty topiary! I've been wanting to make a couple for the front porch, but still haven't gotten around to it.
Glad to see that you're back!

Heidi said...

Hooray, you're back! I've missed your posts.

Love the topiary! I never made one but this year I found a black plastic urn at a thrift so I'm thinking maybe this may be the year to make the attempt. Yours is inspiring!
