Friday Fun! {Fall decor....Book give away}

Hey sweet friends! It's Friday!! Whoohoo!! Do y'all have big plans this weekend or are you just hanging out at home and chillin' out? We are headed up to NC in the morning for a half marathon--which I have not trained for! I am not practicing what I preach with being prepared. So, I will be treating this race as just a fun long run with a few hundred new friends. 

Earlier this week, I posted a book give away here.  And today, I want to announce the winner....and it is {drum roll please!!}....Tilara Monroe. Yay! I will be contacting you to get your address and zip that fabulous book that will soooo touch your heart early next week. Congratulations!

A while back, I discovered two bloggers that I am following regularly. And, I found them through a dear friend of mine, Paige. I invite you to read her posts here. She is just an amazing girl. Period. One of the cool things about blogging is the new and creative ideas that others share. Being somewhat of a craft person---yes, I would much rather be creating with fabric and paint and glue guns than creating a marvelous supper for the family. I am more than happy to help clean up the marvelous supper afterwards, but would love a personal chef that loves to cook. I digress....

So, as I was saying, these two bloggers that I am following are really amazing. Tara, writes at Between You and Me. Y'all, she has created this darlin' wreath that you can buy for hundreds elsewhere! And, like her, I can't pay hundreds for a wreath either. My husband would think I had lost my mind!! So....we create and craft! As I told her, it will take me weeks to get started on this project. But....I DO have my supplies ready. See....

So if you hop over to her link, you can see the step-by-step of making this adorable piece for your a fraction of what you would pay if you ordered it.

Another sweet gal and artist is Sasha, at Lemonade Makin' Mama. Sasha has some lovely prints that I thought would go nicely in our home. So, I ordered a couple. I got this one in yesterday, and have just fallen in love with it.

Is that just not precious? So glad that there are so many talented gals out there who share their talents with us.  Make sure to visit these sweet ladies over the weekend. You won't be disappointed.

Finally, I wanted to share with you my fall sideboard. I still have a few more things that I would like to do to it....hoping it will be finished this weekend.

Love this glass jar (Hobby Lobby). I purchased the burlap ribbon and rosette ( half price, thank you very much!) from HL as well. Found a few crepe/crape (not sure how Southern Living spells this!) myrtle branches in the back yard and voila! Easy and natural for the entrance to our home. Would love to hear what your fall favorites are shaping up to be.

Sweet blessings,
