Moving into Fall...

Two posts in one's been raining a lot thanks to Tropical Storm Hermine, so I haven't been out much other that to take the kids to and from school.

Texas is super hot and we rarely have a big change of mostly feels like Summer and Sort-of Summer. Once school officially starts, I start to think about Fall. I am honestly in no hurry to get everything in HARVEST-order since it is still 95+ degrees outside, so a little bit everyday is my goal.

Here is my project for the day. I made the glasses early in the morning and while they dried, I started the wreath.
Yep beans, hot glue, and spray paint. :)

What tedious work this is, but it was made so much more enjoyable by the fact that I worked on it while watching my FAVE movie, It's Complicated. It honestly took the whole movie to complete it. But I like it. And I plan on changing the color and the ribbon with each holiday.

Of course, there is no way I will show a picture of my front porch, since as of yet...there is no decor other than this wreath. Beaded pumpkins to come.
