All That Glitters Is Gold

After seeing some of Martha's glittered pumpkins, I wanted to try some for myself. Last year, near the end of fall, I got a few ceramic pumpkins on sale (90% off) at Hobby Lobby. They have just been waiting for the perfect project. So, I got out my Martha glitter and got to work. And yes, you do have to use the Martha Stewart glitter. I couldn't quite understand how Martha could make her glitter so special, but she does. It is so airy, like powder and just has more sparkle.

This project is pretty easy, but somewhat time consuming and very messy. All you have to do is spread glue or Mod Podge on the pumpkin(s) evenly then sprinkle on the glitter. I did my pumpkins section by section for a smooth application. Let them dry for a little while -I let mine dry over night. Just be prepared, the glitter gets everywhere. But, in the end you'll have pretty little pumpkins to add to your fall decor.

Happy Fall!


It's not quite fall, but Labor Day weekend marks the start of my fall decorating. Jamie got the plastic tubs down from the attic and I started putting out the pumpkins. I've still got quite a lot to do, but here's a little peek.

Are you ready for fall? I am. I just love this time of year! I'm also excited to see all the decor from other bloggers and get new ideas for some crafts to try.

Friday's Favorite

Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you and hope you have a great day!!!

Get excited, it's Friday! There is nothing like a Friday during football season here in Auburn. The town is all a buzz and everywhere you look people are sporting their orange and blue. Final preparations are being made before the big day on Saturday. Well, we're ready! We've got the vehicles loaded and coolers filled. Here's our checklist: generator, tv, coolers, tents, chairs, tailgating box (that's right, we've got a box (on wheels) filled with all of our weekly essentials), tables, and don't forget the cute orange and blue serving pieces. Our weekly schedule has been executed well. Now all we have to do is go cheer on our Tigers!

Happy Friday and War Eagle!!!

Sister See

I missed last week's post from Sister's house, but here's what she's been up to-trying to figure out paint colors for her kitchen, living room, guest bathroom and laundry room. Plus, she's getting her kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity cabinets painted. She had a hard time making a decision, as you can see.

But, she's finally narrowed it down. The painting should start any day now! It is going to be such a change. We're really excited!!! I can't wait for the final results.

Stay tuned for more from Sister's!
