Michael & I are blessed to have an attached Carport with a huge 12x24 room. In the past year it has turned into a catch all and Michael's "shabby" Office. That is all about to change (thank goodness) as we decided to divide the room into an Office for Michael and a Craft/Storage room for me. The next few months are going to be exciting and a great experience for us to share with you guys our remodel. Here is the 1st of many projects:
|Michael & Paw Paw Working Hard|

|3rd Trip to Lowes Picking out Trim|
Total Cost so Far- $250

Michael seems to think that I might be turning into a Can Hoarder. I have around 50 cans, all different shapes and sizes. You never know when you might need one and if not I always Recycle them. So I came up with this, to get him off my back and to make something Cute.

Besides Spring, Fall is my favorite time of the year. With the cooler weather and great Autumn colors, whats not to love. I usually wait to decorate the house for Christmas(around the 1st of November), but since the Girls are older I figured it was time to start Decorating for Fall. This being my 1st year, I don't have a lot to work with. So I'm having to buy a lot of Fall things and of course making a few as well.
(Found this Owl @ Kirklands)
|Pumpkins & Spice Candles |
(New Fall Table Cloth Coming Soon!)
(I'm Working on an Awesome Wreath)
Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend and get outside to enjoy the cool Weather!
