What Day is it?

In case you didn’t know, today is the official “FIRST DAY OF FALL”

My cute daughter, Kylee left this sentiment on my chalkboard the other day.  Simple, but says it all.

I just finished making my second coffee filter wreath.  I have seen these for a year or so and always wanted to make one.

All it took was for two of my bff’s, Joyce and her sister Kathy to make one.  After seeing theirs, I only wanted one ever more. lol!  You know, keeping up with the ‘Jones’ and such.

Deciding what to embellish it with is the funnest part.

My hairdressers daughter, Sierra picked up this wide burlap ribbon for me.  I have used it a ton.  LOVE it!

I had a necklace with three keys dangling down, a little ribbon, some golden pom-poms, and a glittery leaf ornament I bought at Target after Christmas for $1.

Put it together, and the adorning was done.

I also just finished my Fall calendar.

There it is, that first day of Fall

If you have followed me for a while, you know then that I am an Advent Addict!

It all started with a Halloween one last year.  From there, oh mama you can only imagine.

Oh well, if it makes me happy what the heck.  One can never have too many calendars.  hee-hee!

Leaving with a “Happy Fall Y’all!”

Your calendar is beautiful! I've never seen one made like that! But I have a collage frame...that magnets will stick to! I wonder if I could make something like this! WOW! ♥

Oh I just love your calenders! I have yet to find a Christmas one that I like and you have given me the idea to just make one myself!
