Sometimes, I like to think that I'm pretty crafty. If you don't believe me, just ask me and I will tell you! Ha! Over the weekend, I decided that I wanted to add a little bit of Fall flair to my house. While I was near Michael's on Friday, I stopped by and got some foam pumpkins. Then I went to Wal-Mart and picked up some of my favorite colored mums. There is something about these flowers that just scream Fall to me. I went home and did the followings:
2 large foam (or real) pumpkins
2 potted mums (medium size)
box cutter or other tool to cut the foam
Flip back over and slide the mums down in the pumpkins. Display wherever you need a little bit of flair.
I am very happy with the way these turned out. I think I might have seen them somewhere on Pinterest. Someone else told me that they saw them on the cover of Southern Living magazine. I'm not sure where I got the idea, but I'm very happy that I did get it. I like that I can leave these out straight through Thanksgiving. Hmm, looks like I need to start planning my Christmas craftiness!
Tonight, we were able to dodge the forecasted raindrops and go for a walk. It was a slower paced 3 miles, but we still got some movement in, which is most important. I also did some Yoga/Pilates work before I went to bed. I haven't been sleeping well, so I really need to get back into this routine again. I'm hoping that I can get to do some yoga/pilates at least 4 or 5 days a week. Wish me luck!
So long for today...
