I had to work today. So let's just say not a lot got done. But I did throw together some fall decor for the inside of my home.
Now keep in mind a couple things here. First I've never decorated the inside of my home for fall. Before I found blogland I didn't realize you were even supposed to. I'm amazed at the things you people do...I mean come on....who has matching plates enough to feed 8 people??? Center pieces??? Umm....in my house we call that "food". There are days my self esteem would be in the toilet (and not a clean one I might add) if it weren't for this one simple fact. I've decided...that my duty to all of blogland...is to be "THAT WOMAN" ... you know the one...the gal who makes you all feel good about yourselves. The one where you can point and snicker and say to yourself..."I may not be perfect....but at least I'm not HER"! So on that note. I'm going to present to you my valiant attempt on fall decor. And no...none of it is home made, recreated from something and became something else...or will inspire you to hit the "copy to my files" key. Remember now....I am here to boost your ego and make you feel superior!
Nikkicrumpet presents........... STICKS & ROCKS
I'll admit it's not very "fallish" but it was my first attempt.
Nikkicrumpet presents.........SOMETHING EDIBLE THIS WAY COMES.
Did you notice that it's just candy in a cheap glass pumpkin? Because I was trying to camouflage that fact by adding some fake bittersweet....I thought it gave it just a hint of panache'
Nikkicrumpet presents............MY FIRST CLOCHE...WHATEVER THE HECK A CLOCHE IS!
Before I came to blogland I'd never heard of a cloche...I'm still not sure I'm even spelling it correctly. But I figured if I wanted to fit in here I needed to get me one of these. I gotta admit I think they are pretty fine looking filled with little treasures.
Nikkicrumpet presents.....Island decor that doesn't consist of mail & other extraneous junk my hubby drops there no matter how many dang times I threaten his life!
So there you have it...and that's as good as it's gonna get this year. I'm hoping that some of your creative ways will rub off on me over the next 12 months. And by next year I'll be a "Fall Diva" like you all! And if the earth tips on it's axis and all the planets align...I might even buy a set of matching dishes!
I had several people ask about the spray paint gadget...Here's a picture of this little treasure...$7 at the Home Depot...and it's MONEY WELL SPENT! it fits any spray can...it clips on and off easy as can be...and you don't have to clean it after each use. Now that's my kind of tool!!
