Fall Foyer Decorations

Here is my recent decorating project for the entrance foyer table. Fall happens to be one of my favorite seasons. I think it's the colors that always make my heart sing. Mellow yellow, muted orange, rusty brown and the crisp, cooler weather. Although I have this table decorated and the stairwell picture up, I still needs some work.  I plan on painting my inside front door a shade of gray and buy a new entrance rug. Of course, this area will always be revolving for the seasons, but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

The recent new additions, the small wreath and pumpkin were a Hobby Lobby purchase.  Oh my, I love that store! The ceramic owl I had in one of my rooms upstairs. I printed a new Fall freebie and placed it in the frame. I'll place the link for that below. The metal pumpkin and floral arrangement is from Kirkland Home.

This photo below is a piece of metal artwork I saw as I was headed out of Hobby Lobby. It was one of those, "That's just what I've been looking for" moments. I have seen other artwork I loved, but was really looking for something different and without any color and large enough to fill the space. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this area is a 2 story foyer.  This picture is 34" around and I think it lends the the space nicely.

That's about it for today.  I have really been trying to get back to card making. Unfortunately, I fail at that everyday. I never thought I would get into this funk. Hopefully, I'll get in the mood soon so at least Christmas cards get made!

Have a wonderful and CRAFTY day!

Some new Signs /A new Cricut project

I recently added these 2 signs to our new home. Although I love both of them, the Biscuits and Gravy is the one I have in my kitchen. It puts a SMILE on my face every time I read it.  My husband loves biscuits, but I LOVE biscuits and sausage gravy.  I was introduced to this culinary treat when we moved to Lynchburg, VA in 1990. I still will order these when I go out for breakfast. I especially love Cracker Barrels.  How about you? Are biscuits something you enjoy?

The project above was designed by my daughter while she was here on Monday.  She wanted a sign for her little guy Kempton to hold for a back to school picture. She chose what she wanted and I just sized and cut them out on the Cricut Explore.  I think it came out adorable.

Well, I'm off for right now.  We are in the midst of some home warranty repairs, so the house is a little crazy right now.  Have a blessed and CRAFTY day!

My New Foyer Table

Several weeks ago my sweet son-in-law made this Foyer table for me.  It is a design from Anna White that she so graciously supplies plans to follow on her website. He nailed it! Thanks Matt...

I'm in the process of decorating it, so it's still a work in progress.  I actually just used things that I had except the greenery. I have a few more ideas rolling around in my head of what I will add, but haven't found just the right ones. Of course this probably will always revolve.  I tend to do that with my accessories. How about you? As I say to my husband, tchotchkes
are always cheaper then hard case items.  I don't think he believes it, though!

Have a wonderful day. If you have a special room or entry you would like to share I would love to see it.

Stay CRAFTY my friends.
