On looking back...

 (Dundee the horse- Princess #1's very  favorite!)

 "Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone;
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering." -unknown

Happy Monday!

"a beautiful butterfly"!

The content of these photos may cause sudden uncontrollable cravings,
and may also cause irrational behavior, such as (but not limited to)
denying you have any possible idea what happened to all the candy.

Please tell me I'm not the only who is affected this way when these beloved
little pumpkins make their annual debut!

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!

Feelin' a little Fall...

so I decided to make a little wreath...

beginning with one of my favorite things!- fabric scraps!

I created a few "fall-looking"  flowers and leaves...

then simply wrapped a straw wreath form with burlap...
created a large burlap ruffle and hot glued to the wreath, then 
created a smaller ruffle and glued on top of the larger ruffle...

attached my "fall flowers" ...

 looped a chocolate brown ribbon around the top, tied a simple bow, 
then hung on the front door...

and now the house is starting to "feel a little Fall"!
How about you?
Are you feelin' a little Fall too?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Many Blessings!
