Monday and Time for You're The Star Party

Monday and You're The Star Party

Happy Monday and welcome to the party. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good, although I am still dealing with my vertigo. It just doesn't want to go away.  

The weather has been so nice and I was able to put down some mulch in the beds I cleaned last week. 
I also, started to work on sanding some wood for a picnic table that my BIL gave me. I had to stop often and rest. 

Have a fabulous week ahead.

Happy Thursday. I hope your week is going well. Mine is good, although I have had another vertigo attack. I really hate these. You can't do much, especially reading and being on the computer. Hopefully, after 4 days, it will be better today. 

Despite the vertigo, I am participating in an Autumn Tray tour. 
I hope you can stop by and maybe find some inspiration.

Creating an Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree Items

Creating an Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree Items

With fall here, there are so many items that can be used to create an autumn tray for your home. Sometimes these items can come from things you already have, from your yard, from the Dollar Tree or a combination of these. My Autumn tray is a combination. 

If you are coming over from The Antiqued Journey, thank you.

I am so happy to be joining Katherine, from Katherine’s Corner for a delightful event, an, “Autumn on a tray tour”.

We have so many wonderful bloggers that are participating. 
 They have all created beautiful inspirations for adding seasonal charm to your home. Please click over to the next blog on the tour, and keep clicking through the tour. Please pin and leave comments, we all love them!


For my Autumn tray, I found this light up pumpkin at the Dollar Tree. I thought it would be great for Halloween, but then realized that I wanted this tray to stay out all fall. That meant it had to change a little.

Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree items. Share NOW. #falltray #autumntray #falldecor #eclecticredbarn

First off, I removed the black netting. It was still not right. The stem was black. 

Autumn Tray with Dollar Tree items. Share NOW. #falltray #autumntray #falldecor #eclecticredbarn

So I decided to wrap twine around the stem to fit in with the rest of my tray.

I found the ribbon at the Dollar Tree and made a couple of bows.

I had bought the pumpkin and leaf sprig at Hobby Lobby on sale. I already had the metal acorns, but you could use real ones or store bought ones. You could also use small pine cones.

I found the burlap leaves at the the Dollar Tree.

I also had the red and yellow leaf candles and some berries to put in the center. 

I am sure you can find similar items to create a tray of your own. The great thing about fall, is that you will find so many great items that you can use to create your own Autumn tray.

Happy Thursday! We are finally experiencing fall here in central Florida. The days are around 82 degrees and the nights are going down to the low 60's.  That may not seem like fall to you, but after such extreme hot temps that we had, this feels like fall and I love it.

We don't have "fall foliage" here, but my son has been sending some fall foliage pictures from Vermont. He gets to enjoy fall foliage on his property.

Heartfelt Thanks and a Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome dear friends. First I want to thank all of your for your kind wishes and concerns during Ian. We are so thankful that we had no damage or flooding. 

I know some of you have family here in Florida. I hope they are all safe and well. 

What a storm. Listening to the wind was so scary. You just wanted it to stop. Fortunately, this week has seen cooler temps and no rain which will help many. We still have thousands of homes without power, although it gets better every day. 

Once again, thank you for your thoughtfulness! 

On to the party!

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy Monday! It's a new week and I am glad that last week is over. Ian came into Florida and we will all remember that devastation it caused. It will be weeks before they will know the extent of the damage but from the news, it has been unbelievable. I feel so bad for all of those in Fort Meyers and Sanibel and the other towns that were devastated by this storm. 

Here in central Florida, we experienced lots of rain and wind but nothing compared to those on the west coast. We still are having flooding issues.

Our home had no damage. Lots of downed branches and leaves. Our yard was almost completely littered with debris and we lost power for 4 days but we were blessed. 

Prayers go out to all of those who were not so fortunate. My God be with you through this difficult time.

Post Ian and Happiness Is Homemade Party

Post Ian and Happiness Is Homemade Party

Ian has left Florida and has delivered such destruction. We were very lucky, no damage to our house or our family homes. Our power went out Wednesday evening and it finally came back on tonight. 

We had a lot of debris and branches in the yard.  We filled up 30 garbage cans and then I stopped counting. I love having over an acre of land, but the last two days, I would have liked less land. After two days of racking and dumping, the yard is finally back to normal. I wish I could say the same for me. I have blisters on top of blisters and I am exhausted. 

At least we have our home. I can't imagine all of those whose homes were destroyed. It was difficult to watch all of the devastation. It seemed like it was going to be  rather quiet season for hurricanes. You just never know.

Happy October and can I say it please… I am so Happy I live in a World with Octobers. What a fun month, Fall has started, Canadian Thanksgiving and yes Halloween. And the start of Q4 for all the bloggers. OMG what a month. Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Ready For October.

This is my month, I love hosting for October,. All the other months my amazing co-hosts share their favs. This month, A Labour of Life gets to share her love of Fall, Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween, for this Canadian it is an amazing time of year. Today, I celebrate Fall in all its glory. Muted Pumpkins, Rustic Decor and all the things to sip and savour. Come show us what you are working on.

Happy Thursday. Well, I am preparing my party before Ian gets here and we loose power. So far , we have had some rain and a little wind, but it is coming. 

I feel sorry for all of those that are more affected than we might be. At least I hope that is the scenario. We have been watching for so long, I wish it would move faster to get it over with. Oh well, please be safe. My prayers are coming your way.

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Happy Monday. I hope you had an awesome weekend. Ours was good although Ian is very much on our minds. We are hoping it goes west but latest scenario shows it heading east. That means a lot of rain and wind for Florida and my area. I hope everyone who is in Florida is safe.

Have a great week ahead.

Ghost Garland and Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade  Party

 Happy Sunday.  I hope you are having a great weekend. Ours is a little up in the air. Hurricane Ian is certainly on the minds of us here in Florida. We are waiting to see where it is actually going to go. 

We spent yesterday getting things shored up, bought water and hubby filled up the propane tanks and the gasoline cans. 

I do hope Ian shifts west but we will see. Be safe all of you that are in Florida and surrounding areas.

If you missed last week's party, you can check it out here.

I made this ghost garland from wooden ghosts I got at the Dollar Tree. You can see how I made it here.

Happy Thursday and welcome to fall. Can you believe it is the first day of fall? Are you ready? I am looking forward to fall decorating and cooler weather. 

I did get some of my decorations down from the attic, but not all of it. While I was sorting through my decorations, I decided to do something with some wooden ghosts that I found at the Dollar Tree. 
I hope you check it out. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Dollar Tree Ghost Garland

Dollar Tree Ghost Garland

You can find so many great Halloween items at Dollar Tree as many of you know. I have been finding great items that I can use for decor. This is my second project that I have made from inexpensive items from the Dollar Tree. My first one was about Bats, Branches and Bows that I shared. You can see that project here


When I bought the bats, I also bought some wooden ghosts. I decided to make a garland using them.

Ghost garland. Share NOW. #ghosts, #Halloween, #garland, #dollartree, #craft

This garland looks great with my Bat Tree. 
Ghost garland. Share NOW. #ghosts, #Halloween, #garland, #dollartree, #craft

How to make this garland:

- one package of wooden ghosts (8 per package)
- black felt
- glue 
- black/white twine
- white paint

I placed the wooden ghosts on some foil on a cookie sheet and then painted them with white paint. You could do this with a brush or spray paint them. Use whatever you have.

Ghost garland. Share NOW. #ghosts, #Halloween, #garland, #dollartree, #craft

I painted both sides of the wooden ghosts. Once they were dried, I added some black felt so the eyes would stay out. I cut a piece that would cover the eyes and the mouth. You can use black paper or foam core that they have at the Dollar Tree. 

Ghost garland. Share NOW. #ghosts, #Halloween, #garland, #dollartree, #craft

The black really makes the eyes and mouth pop.

Once all of the felt was on, I used some black/white twine that I got at the Dollar Tree. If you can't find black/white twine, you can use regular twine or plain black.

Ghost garland. Share NOW. #ghosts, #Halloween, #garland, #dollartree, #craft

I just threaded the twine through the hole in the top of the ghost and then hung them on my window that is in my dining room.

First Day of Fall and Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome to Fall. Oops, the first day of fall is actually, Thursday not Wednesday. Sorry!  Can you believe that fall is here? I am looking forward to it. I actually got my fall decorations down and started to decorate. 

I wish it felt  like fall, but hopefully one of these days. I must admit, we have had a few cooler days. 

I would like to share a story about my granddaughter. She is a freshman in high school. She was chosen to be on the junior lacrosse team and was doing quite well until last Saturday when she got hit with a stick in the face.

My son, scooped her up and headed to the emergency room.  He said she was a trooper through it all. 
I won't share her picture, but she busted her lip, has a broken nose, along with several other cuts. I felt so bad for her.

Your prayers are welcomed. 

On to the party!
