Skeletons in my Hutch!


Dollar store spider watching over the guest!
I know, it is not a Halloween or fall saying, but I like this one!
and Love my chalkboard!


This Bouquet is from our beautiful fall nature!
A cute story about how I got them.  My husband went for a walk
and I asked him to pick up some fall leaves from the ground for me.
You see I had a leaf craft, I wanted to do!

When he came home he had an arm full of branches
with beautiful fall leaves!!!!

I didn't ask any questions,  just smiled and told
him that was more than I expected

I know this is my 3rd Fall and or Halloween
Post, love this time of Year!

Enjoy your Fall and Be Safe on Halloween!
Keep Warm, we have had our first snow storm!

Indian Corn Fall Decor DIY


                                I love Indian Corn !!!!

I use to have a friend grow them for me!
This year I did purchase them.  You can find them in the
fall at most grocery stores in the produce department!
I just tied knots in twine and left loops to carry the corn!

We have a stucco home, so I did not want to make a hole,
especially with the hub wondering how I would put
them outdoors!
So, I did find a place to hang them from the light
fixture.  If their is a will there is a WAY!

Take care and enjoy your Fall!

Shabby Redo Dresser to TV Table keeper

My husband said," keep this one," he saw a vision!
He saw something I didn't for us  Yes, I found the piece
and knew the slight curved front, unusual knobs, and legs well
 would make a good redo!
I was wanting a longer and just the right one for our TV
BUT he was so sure on this one, so now we are happily enjoying it!

This is an excellant easy stripper!
You might not be able to tell by the picture,
but the legs were painted thick gold!
I wanted the natural wood to stain.

I searched for a while for just the right knobs to add.  The small curved square ones!
I spray painted all knobs black and poly coated them.
Now what shall I put in all those drawers, YES! :)

More Pussy Willow Decor Or is it Cat Tail Tutorial

Hello, I hope all is fine, I have been busy working on a Rental we have.  One month of repairs, cleaning, and painting!
  Being a Landlord is good
when the rent comes in, but Hell when most move!
This could be a post all in itself, but not fun to share!
Now, on to the Pussy Willow, or Cat Tails which most
call them!  I am use to calling them, and like, Pussy Willow!
 So I will be plantically
Wonderful to use in spring and summer flower arrangements.
Free, if they are near you?
They do last a long time.
In the Spring they pop up everywhere around my area.
Our bike trails go all around them.
I did a post last fall  but wanted to share a tip
I learned since then.  After paint spraying them, they still
will dry out and most will crack open to seed
like the picture below!
This Year's Pussy Willow Fall Decor is yes, with pussy willow's
again, but different and added the birds!

OK these are cat tails, but Sheba was trying to play and tear off the tips!
Most difficult, since she won't leave me alone to do my project!
And the garage was Too Hot!

I used this product to coat them before painting!
it does dry with some crackle look, fine with me!

I also did some with diluted Elmer's glue, which is less expensive
and a smooth finish!  Personal preference!

Just sprayed some with orange and black spray paint, I am
saving some for a Xmas Idea.  I will post that closer to Xmas!
Love those Pussy Willows

If you have cats, you know how hard it is to get a picture
without them!

This is where I get mine!  We have wildlife Marsh's and Cat Tail
Fields.  I am fascinated by these plants!  Nature is there
for us in abundance!

Wishing you a Great Fall !

Laundry Dryer Lint DIY

What do Butt Wipes and Dryer Lint Have In Common?

Nothing really, just trying to get your attention!  I don't know about you but I do not want a trash can in my laundry room, especially because there is not a space for it!  I am always pulling lint from the lint trap and going to the closest point, which is right across the hall, into the bathroom to throw away the unsightly clump of lint.  This is my quest bathroom, so it is not that pleasant to look at, even though I do empty the trash can often!  Hey maybe there is a common ground on the lint and butt wipe!??
Well one day, when one of my Baby wipe containers, or Butt wipe container depending on your household, was empty I thought of a idea.  I am sure there are a lot of ideas to store items in these!

 Why not put one on my dryer? YES,  pop open the top and push in that lint and it's even out of sight too! Works for the old dryer sheets too!  I really like mine and maybe it could work for you.  Have I gone Butt crazy? 
I just painted over the label and
marked Lint!
Easy Easy!

Yes, that is Kitties Butt!   She is adding to my story!

Just pop in and close the lid!   Simple things like that make me happy!

I do want to mention that their are some talents out there that use this
stuff!  I do like to keep things  and reuse, but I will be tossing mine!

Interesting check below!
