Elegant Pottery Barn Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape

I am so excited because Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, is less than two weeks away! I love it because it's one of the few times that I get to have my extended family all together around one table. And while I am not hosting this year, I have set a smaller, more intimate but still elegant table for my immediate family since that's who I will actually be with on Thanksgiving Day.

Pottery Barn Inspired DIY Galvanized Jack-o'-Lantern

I'm still enjoying a little Halloween DIY-ing here but this one will be my last for this year. It was inspired by a galvanized Jack-o'-lantern that I spied at Pottery Barn...but theirs was $40. :-( It actually went on sale but with no shipping allowed (?) and was not available anywhere near me. My only choice...create my own. And I have to say that mine cost absolutely nothing since I already had everything in my stash!

Halloween Cookie Jar Makeover

I have a fun makeover to share today...but it didn't really start out to be anything along those lines! I'm going to be honest here. I've spent the last few years trying on now-stylish muted colors for fall but I have to confess that I have missed the bright colors. So this year I have been embracing  traditional jack-o'lanterns, black cats, bats and orange and black for Halloween....and loving it!

Halloween Mantel with DIY Mantel Scarf

I am always excited to share my projects with you but this one is really special! I have been eyeing Halloween mantel scarves for two years and I have honestly debated about just ordering one. But I knew I wanted one to custom fit my mantel plus I was not sure what the fabric would look like in person. Sooo....I finally bit the bullet and made my own! And...I LOVE it!
