OURSTORY

Headed north.

8:49 PM

Happy holidays friends! Are you as excited for the holiday season as I am? Tomorrow we head north for the holiday, where we will be greeted by lots of wonderful family. We are Oregon bound. What do your holidays look like this year? Will you be sticking around or traveling? It is a traveling kind of year for us. Come Christmas we are off to Hawaii through the New Year to be with Will's family. I have a feeling it is going to be a very different Christmas than I grew up with. No snow, in fact no cold what-so-ever. I am excited, but I am curious, without the snow and chill, will it still feel like Christmas? We will see!

On a side note, what holiday dish are you looking forward to the most? For me, it's got to be the mashed potatoes and of course dessert! Delish. The bountiful snacking isn't bad either ;)

Happy Thanksgiving (a little early).

D.I.Y Fall Wreath

10:58 AM

'Tis the season for a new fall wreath.

Tutorial may be found here. How lovely are the mustard yellow roses completely covering Katie's wreath? These felt roses are easy and quick to make, but you'd never know from the look of them.



In case you are wondering, here is what you will need:
-1 grape vine wreath base
-felt
-scissors
-ink pen
-hot glue gun
-glue sticks
-ribbon or fabric scraps to hang your wreath
-and…a little patience


Do give this project a try. I love my new fall wreath. It is quite pleasing to return home, welcomed by the pumpkins on my porch, my tea cup bird feeder (which by the way, the birds love), and now this sweet homey wreath. Not to mention the crisp cool air. Fall is truly here. ♥
