Decorating for the season~

I made them!! I saw these on a blog, Bienville maybe?, and couldn't wait to see if I could it, too! So easy and so quick. Both frames have stands so it makes hanging them a bit difficult, but to tell you the truth, I didn't look before getting them on sale at Hobby Lobby!
Scrapbook paper, sticker letters, and black frames ~ super easy!
Here's an update on the master in the apartment. I haven't decided yet on curtain holders but really like the way they'll look. Nope, we don't have a curtain over the big window yet. I hope to have those on by the time John's on midnight shift and needs to sleep during the day~
In the kitchen is this odd corner cabinet. There are not many cabinets, at ALL, in this kitchen but I've been pleasantly surprised how easy it has been to bring in only what's needed. I didn't realize we cook with far less than what we own. Of course, we store dinnerware on plate holders and we've turned the 'storm closet' into a grand pantry! Guess I'll have to tell the upstairs neighbors to quit whining and sit amongst the beans if they need to use the room during a tornado warning. That or go back upstairs~
I found these vinyl letters at Hobby Lobby and love them!! Only thing is, the walls are all textured and they don't stick very well. The dot over the 'i' in Faith has already dropped and been lost. I'm thinking I'll trace around the lettering and paint them myself. Johnny said 'no way'. Hmm, we'll see.
Got the table changed out, too. I let go of several dinner sets when we moved and haven't missed any of them yet. Just change out the linens and I'm good to go. I still have another set of dinnerware in the garage to use during the holidays. The candlesticks came from CrackerBarrel~
Now I think I want to make some conucopias to hang on the back of the chairs. Does anyone have an easy idea? I've never made one, but seen them hanging by ribbon. I'll have to do some searching~
Just another area of the living room~
And THIS!!! I was so excited when Jenny noticed this at a local store, Carol Brooks, in downtown Prattville. I had to have it for John and he loved it. You choose the number of openings in a frame, then you choose from various snapshots items that form the alphabet. While going through the letters, Jen and I never saw a duplicate! It's so unique!! This isn't the best photo in the world, but you get the idea~
Hope you're having a good start to the week~
and may it only get better!

First of all, the new blog layout is great! Your fall decorations look super. And the Halloween framed pics you made are toooo cool! I love the words that are on the wall in the kitchen. I have some in my breakfast room now. I ordered them from WiseDecor and they were quite pricey. Did you get a good price on the ones from Hobby Lobby?

I love the new look!

Where in Hobby lobby did you get the letters on the wall? I recently saw these at my moms..... my moms says "We may not always have it together..... but together we have it all" she got hers at a party kinda like a partylite party but it was with these letter things that rub onto the wall.... I have been wanting some so badly...
