Every Wednesday in September This Blessed Nest is hosting a Fall Festival. Today I decided to participate, because I love fall. I am also linking to the 3rd. Annual Fall Nesting Party over at The Inspired Room. Never thought I would be saying this, but I am almost looking forward to summer leaving. Yes, me, the person who waited all year for summer is glad to see her leave.
Will I never be happy?
Summer and I are at odds since she tried to kill me this year. Seriously, it’s been an extremely difficult year for allergies and asthma and I may just do a happy dance when everything is frozen.
Remind me I said that in January.
I still refuse to mention the four letter “S” word. *S–W*
Ok, back to happy thoughts and all things fall. I pulled out my fall decorations, consisting of one white pumpkin and a bunch of fake berries.
I go all out, don’t I?
Then I went to the dollar store. I can see you’re all hanging on the edge of your seats now. Let me explain. I stole an idea for making glass holders from someone’s lovely blog, but I CANNOT, for the life of me, remember what blog. That’s very bad.
If it was your blog, please speak up and I’ll be sure to include a link. I apologize from the depths of my blackened, thieving soul.
Well, here’s what I did. I bought 3 glass candle holders and 3 hurricane top things and hot-glued them together. That’s it! I plan to fill them with candy corn, candy pumpkins, and candy eyeballs. Hopefully I can find candy eyeballs, because my fall season will not be complete without them.
Those baby pumpkins also came from the dollar store. That’s it! The extent of my decor consists of empty hot-glued glass and a few fake pumpkins. I’m glad this is only the first day of September. I still have time to redeem myself with Mums (not mothers Debra ;-)) and a few leaves scattered around.
