A Crafty Weekend

I finally did some Fall decorating this weekend! As I mentioned I was going to do in my previous post.

My Ma & I went shopping Saturday to get all of our supplies. Which ended up looking like this....

It was madness! We were in Michaels for about an hour! We went to Joanns Fabric Friday night but they were fresh out of everything we needed. We did some more shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond on Saturday. Where I got some new throw pillows for our new couch! Which I am pretty excited about. I can't wait to move into our new place.

this is the back of my Moms van! Ha! Looks like we were Black Friday shopping!

The shopping got a little out of control as you can see! & this was before we even went grocery shopping!
If we don't know how to do anything else WE CAN SHOP YALL. :)

Here is the start of my wreath I've been working on. Made of burlap and cream/gold colored "deco mesh" (the fancy term for mesh looking ribbon). & I'm going to add some big flowers to it! I can't wait to finish it!

Another Fall project I was working on...

The Pinterest Version

My version

I think mine is pretty close to the Pinterest version! What do you think?! It was super easy. I got the mason jars, sunflowers, floral foam to stick the flowers in, and the moss to hide the flower stems from the Dollar Tree. The Dollar Tree yall! Where everything is $1. Can't beat it. Then I got the little stems with berrys, gold spray paint and the twine I tied around the jars from Michaels. All of their Fall floral stuff was on sale.
Crafting with my Ma was so much fun! I love it!

My hubs was gone all weekend to go hunting in GA. I miss him when he's gone. But obviously I know how to keep myself busy! Ha! But I love when he sends me pictures like this...

One of the peanut fields at the farm where his hunting club is...
I wish I lived on a farm like this... I would just go walk around outside everyday and enjoy the view. I am definitely a southern girl at heart. :)

What did you do this weekend? Have you been crafting too?


  1. Fall shopping - so much fun. I think your version looks just as good, if not better than the Pinterest version. :)
