v. Fall-ify

Thank you for all of your kind words on my previous post.
I am up doing laundry and had started this post Friday.
Seems silly to care about wreaths and pumpkins, but at the same time I love
making my home festive for us, and once we get over summer leaving, we really embrace fall.

And kids God love 'em, they don't let you dwell too long!

On this gorgeous afternoon, we ran up and down the sledding hill {major cardio!}, played in the leaves, and just spent time in nature, perfect!  Tomorrow is supposed to be the same weather-wise, and a great time to...

v. Fall-ify
an effort to spruce up the place with pumpkins collected, artwork created, 
a new craft here-and-there to celebrate this truly gorgeous time of year.

{a new wreath}
Fabric strips and a few rolled fabric and felt flowers on a floral wreath form

{pumpkin topiaries}
Just love cinderella pumpkins, last year I had 3 pumpkins piled {see last picture below}, and used
rebar cut to size and hammered it through the pumpkins...with our warmer weather and wanting
the pumpkins to last longer this time around I piled 2 high without rebar.  Once the hole in the pumpkin is made, countdown to rotting begins, yuck!  Hope they'll last longer this way...still pretty I think!

{chalkboard pumpkins}
These were a hit last year, just spray with chalkboard spray paint, dry, spray again and done!

Our home is sans fireplace/mantel so this area gets the special treatment  All done with things we already owned and in about 5 minutes before bedtime!  Just a few changes can make a big difference.  Yes I could add more, but those costumes need to get done sometime right?!

{favorite purchased decoration}
This little pumpkin patch sign purchased at Home Goods, 7 pumpkins, it was meant to be!

{first apple stamping and pumpkin faces}
love 'em!!

{last year}
Can't believe how much my five cute pun'kins have grown!!

Now, on to costumes and all things circus, only 1 week to go, eek!!
