2. Fall Subway Art Printable from Kristin at A Simply Klassic Home.
I loved this fall printable which I found while blog-hopping last night...maybe it's the "pumpkin spice latte" part that subliminally caught my attention!
And here's how I used it in my dining room hutch...
Thank you so much, Kristin, for the printable...and the inspiration.
3. Spiders in my stockings.
This idea came from Shirley at Sweet Romantic Notions. Thanks to her comment on my Halloween stocking post, I really do have spiders in my stockings now (guess it's a step up from ants in my pants!).
Shirley wrote, "These stockings are so wild..I love them..and I would fill them with all sorts of Halloween things from spiders to candy corn!" Well, Shirley, you were right...that big old spider I picked up at the dollar store after reading your comment is just the finishing touch this project needed.
4. Orange watering can from Debra at Common Ground.
Here's Debra's version...my inspiration photo...I just love the unexpected pop of orange amongst all the white on her porch...
And mine. As you can see, it is a work in progress...
And finally, just to let you know that there really is a 30-year-old "Gourmet Group"...here we are in 1982. I'm in the green sweater and my sister, Nancy, is in the lavender jacket. Sadly, we've lost two members of our group, but we haven't lost the tradition of monthly dinners together. Good friends...getting together through life's ups and downs for 30 years...what could be better than that? (Maybe I'll take some photos tonight and you'll see that we haven't aged a bit in 29 years!)
So this is a big thank you to all of you for continually inspiring me with your amazing ideas...you ladies ROCK! Now I'd better get down to the kitchen and see how dinner's coming along...
