For some reason, it feels like this past year flew by in unusual swiftness. It seems like we barely had summer. I'm not normally a big fan of summer, but this year it left too quickly even for me. I think it's because last winter was unusually cold and LONG for Texas.
But here we are, fall again, and I DO love fall. :)
I've been cooking chili, baking all kinds of goodies, lighting candles, wearing my fuzzy socks. Because that's what fall is all about. :)
I needed new fall wreaths this year, so I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and grabbed a few things (either 50% off, or with the 40% coupon of course!) and whipped up a couple.
This one is my favorite:
I got a cheap straw wreath, a roll of printed burlap ribbon, and found an awesome fall stem of flowers. Wrapped the wreath in the burlap, tied the stem of flowers on with yarn, and I was done. Couldn't have been simpler, but I love how it turned out.
That was my first welcome to fall. Now I'm busy trying to make fall feel very much at home so it will stay around for a long, long time this year. ;)
Have a happy, blessed fall, full of cozy, yummy goodness! :)
