Happy Friday Eve and Mid-September all. I still have to look at the calendar to be reminded that it's Fall here in the desert because it's 97 degrees as I write this and I'm dreaming of when I can wear boots and sweaters.
Got the post-surgical all clear to resume whatever I feel up to including driving so I ventured out solo the other day for the first time in five weeks and of course where did I go? Dollar Tree! I was itching to see what cute Halloween stuff they had to play with and wasn't disappointed. I'm on the hunt for a Halloween tree to decorate this year and got some very cool ornaments to use when I find the right one. I'm sure by the next time I go they'll be knee deep in Christmas!
Before we get that far ahead though, let's take a look at some of the great ideas from last week's party!
Can you ever have too many pumpkins on display this time of year? Especially Glitter Pumpkins like these from A Life of Balance? Now's the time to pick up those faux pumpkins before they're gone.
I've seen some fashion ads featuring painted jeans and they can of course get pricey. Being DIYers though, of course our first thought is "How can I do that?" and Love My Little Cottage has got us covered with a tutorial. How cute are these?
Look at this fabulous Coffee Table from A Life Unfolding made from...wait for it...a vintage CHICKEN CRATE! I love it. And on wheels!
Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box is back with another spectacular Fall cookie idea. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Rake Cookies that look 3D!
Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week and thanks to everyone who linked up!
