Autumn Vignettes & Giveaway

The other day I had one of those days... My kids refused to sleep through the night, I had an exam that day, and my truck was giving me problems. The kind of problems where the wheels set on fire when you're driving. Not fun.

Thankfully the girls were not with me when that happened and I was able to put out the fire using table salt!

But that night, when I was so exhausted, that's when my creativity randomly kicked in and I started decorating my house for fall.

I added some lentils to some jars (just like Heidi did here) and a few decorative gourds for colour.

I updated some artwork to hang in the living room. I'm not sure why I feel like these vintage maps are autumnish, but to me they are!

I made these metallic pumpkins by spray painting decorative pumpkins with silver spray paint. 

I feel like I can cuddle up with my blanket and a good cup of coffee and enjoy my house now!

And now for the moment we've all been waiting for .. drumroll please. A giveaway! Yes, thanks to our wonderful readers, we have 100 "likes" on Facebook!
