Fall Happenings

It is fall at Casa de Johnson!

Friday night, Bonnie came over and we made fall wreaths. I'm very excited because this was my first endeavor with making a wreath. If I had my CAMERA CHARGER, ugh, I could upload a picture of it. For now, I'll have to steal my iPhone photo from Facebook...

Thank goodness for Hobby Lobby! We each bought a blank wooden wreath, then went through the floral and fall decor and picked out what we wanted. I think it turned out alright for my first rodeo :)

Then Saturday, we were having the youth over for a movie night, so I pulled out the fall decor and got busy! I added a leaf garland to the top of our TV unit, along with a small scarecrow. I created a couple of centerpieces using fall items:
-I used fall leaves and a candle
-I put fall flowers w/Spanish moss in a pitcher

I also bought a couple of a-dorable wooden pumpkins for the living room. Nate and I went to Hobby Lobby again last night, but nothing tickled our fancy (except two gorgeous XL wall sconces for our dining room... now we need an XL piece of art)!

Hopefully, again, I find my camera charger soon so I can continue uploads! I'm off to clean... maybe, eat lunch (leftover Olive Garden, yum), and create a couple of fall items that I saw on this blog: The CSI project. They did fall projects this week, and many of them were drool-worthy!

Have a great weekend everyone! Tonight we are going to my school's Fall Gala (an adult dinner and silent auction, band/dance that raises money for the school). It should be pretty swanky. We'll see if I get pictures!
