About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Fall Decorating Continued....

   Decorating is still going on at my house!  It's just so fun!  Today I put together a ton of ribbons to make a swag for the living room mantle.  I adore ribbons and I think the swag is a nice addition to the room.  Can you believe there are no pumpkins here??

Oh, here is one!  I bought this scarecrow years ago when Jeff and I were first married.  He was on the clearance table and leaned a bit (he still needs to be propped up) but I just thought he needed to be a part of our home.:-)

   Another pumpkin!  This one is from my Mom.:-)
   Look, there are some more.  Don't they just make you happy?  Chubby lumps of love is what I call them....  Have you started your Fall decorating yet?

Lori - your home and decorations are so beautiful! You put me to shame. Maybe once both girls are in school I'll actually buy some decorations for fall. I love all your pumpkins!

Hey Lori,
That swag is adorable!!!You JUST put that together? That would have taken me a while!
Man, that pumpkin by the scarecrow is huge! I love how you have pictures, books and pumpkins all over the place-It makes your home very inviting and full of love. (warm and cozy)
I guess I better get busy and get my house in the "fall" mode!

I love your ribbon swag. Great idea and it looks very effective. I will have to try that. I love swags.


Linda said...

I've seen these beautiful swags around and now I think I'm going to have to make one for myself. Did you tie the ribbon on to a long piece of ribbon, string? What is a good length to cut the ribbons into?

Your swag is beautiful!
