THE TALE OF 2 LITTLE PUMPKINS + A HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU

a stylish little lady
dear people of the blog ...

i went thrifting this week with a friend and came home with 2 pumpkins.  granted i did not need them, nor was i on the hunt for pumpkins but what can i say, i got suckered in only because they were new with tags + dirt cheap.  not to mention, i don't really have any fall decor (and admittedly am not a fan of the stuff you find at the craft store). my husband thinks i'm anti traditional and there may be some truth to that.  so these work for me ... their not orange, you can't carve them, and they will last for years to come since they're made from twine and rope.  now the question becomes ... where to put them?  they have been moved around and are currently resting on the floor. the dog thought they were new toys but quickly realized pumpkins just aren't fun or worth the time.

so this concludes the tale of 2 orphan pumpkins that found a home and will have a happy holiday even if they are just on the floor.

happy weekend from me and my pumpkins.
enjoy yourselves.
and take a little time to love on those who love you best!

EASILY MADE FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY ... A MOSS WREATH

hello friends.  today's post is brought to you by my need to find an easy design for our front door that was not only welcoming but added a bit of interest.  my solution ... a wreath made of moss.  i like this wreath because it is low maintenance, simple, and a bit eclectic with all the little dangles.  it's a perfect modern take on traditional decor as it is a little unexpected with a bit of whimsy. you'll just need a few things to create one of your own ....

moss ( i used live, but the artificial or preserved works too)
styrofoam florist wreath
floral U pins
twine + clip for hanging (or whatever you like)

just take your moss and pin into place all around your wreath until it is completely covered (and there is no evidence of the foam showing). that's it!

ps//if you are using live moss, i usually give mine a spritz of water once a week.  it will turn a dark green when wet and once it dries, it will be a silvery gray. also, if you want to add a bit of color, you could easily mix in some fall berries or leaves.



EAT ... WEAR ... MAKE ... LOVE ...

camping anyone?

this little collection is inspired by cooler temps, the smell of a burning fire, and cozy sleeping bags. nothing beats a warm meal (or beverage) cooked over the fire while wearing a fleece hoodie. and after dinner, you can snuggle up in that tent and make yourself some branch weavings.  seriously, these are the makings for a great weekend!

well hello there wednesday.

may you be a good day for us all and may cooler days be upon us because i have boots to wear ... sweaters to cuddle up in ... and beanies + scarves that need to know just how much i love them. and speaking of boots ... you can see how i restyled the pair i'm wearing here. in the meantime, this floral kimono layered over a simple t will do just fine.

have a great day friends.

peace to your heart.
