Burlap and Moss Wall Hanging

I wish you could meet my Anna Belle.

My sweet middle child.

With her red hair, hazel green eyes and natural athletic ability,

she somehow turned up every recessive gene that was available. 🙂

And, somewhere along the way my sweet Anna Belle has grown up.

She is starting middle school in just a couple of days…

So, as we were driving home from orientation

and, as I was asking her how she thought she was going to

like her new school,

somehow the conversation turned to college.

{Seriously, I am struggling with the fact that she is in middle school, 

so I bring up college?!}

And, although we weren’t talking scholarships,

this random thought came out of her sweet mouth.

“Mom,  I really want to get a scholarship to college.  And, I’m gonna be very disappointed if I don’t get one.  But, I’m gonna have to get it for something else besides being smart.  I’m sure I’ll think of something!?”

Wow, middle school should be fun…

So, onto today’s project.

Moss in Brass Containers

Moss in Brass Containers

When I was a little girl and someone asked me what my favorite color was. . .

my answer was ALWAYS the same. . .


I had a beautiful pink room.

Complete with the pink canopy bed from Sears.

 Santa brought it to me when I was 8.

I’ll never forget that Christmas.

We always opened one present on Christmas Eve.

I happened to pick the box that held my new Miss Piggy sheets. . .

Which had me in a quandry most of the night.

What if Santa didn’t bring the new canopy bed I had asked for?

What would I do with those sheets?

But, my fears of having to return those amazing sheets

all dissolved when I walked down the stairs on Christmas morning

and there under the tree was a picture of my new canopy bed!

(Which was in a box in the garage.)

How to Make a Moss Bird

I never knew that I wanted an old door. . .

until, I found blog world.

I have been on the hunt for months now.

So, you can imagine my excitement when I happened upon a yard sale last weekend

that was selling doors from a 100+ year old house!

My 13 year old daughter bought one too –

with her own money.

She follows a lot of you gals in blog world as well!

Once I got it home, I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do with it?

DIY Vintage Light Cover Terrariums

I have a fairly green thumb when it comes to outdoor plants.

But, I am the Grim Reaper of indoor plants.

Most greenery that makes it into my house comes by way of

fake moss,

fake grasses,

and anything else of the fake variety.

I have seen terrariums.

And, admired them.

Fall Foyer

I had great plans today of getting my front porch ready for fall.

I was going to buy pumpkins and mums.

I was going to give my front porch a good cleaning.

I had no idea it was supposed to rain ALL DAY!

I never watch the weather.

Oh well.

Maybe tomorrow?

So, today I will share some more fall decorations from my foyer.
