Love the candy corn decor. Did you make that? If so, how?

See you at MNO!!!

BUNTING. Why haven't I made it yet? Do you use spray starch on yours? Do you make your own?

Aimee said...

you haven't made a bunting b/c you are too busy making gorgeous quilts :) I have to have all these quick and easy projects to keep my sewing happy :) This is just JoAnn ecofelt (4 for $1) that I cut in the shape of a bunting flag and just sewed the white on the orange and the yellow on the orange...with the pre-packaged 3 yards of white double fold bias tape top-stitched across the top....easy...had it done in 2 hours.

Oh yeah. I'm making some candy corn streamers. We are hosting a Halloween drop in, so I will decorate with that and serve candy corn, too. So cute. Thanks for sharing the idea. :)

So cute! I love that porch!

As for me, the sprucing I'm doing is simply having a massive yard sale on Saturday and getting rid of clutter!

Those coasters would make great hot pads if enlarged--thanks for the idea--will have to try out!

The coasters are too cute! I have put fall decorations out. Ceramic pumpkins, leaves garland on my mantle. Fall candles. A yellow mum out on the front porch. Then making yummy pumpkin recipes that make my house smell good. :)

That candy corn garland is so cute! I didn't realize that you had four boys like Laurel. I had three of the little darlings myself. They're like little puppies the way they roll around on the grass. God made them different, that's for sure!
