Rainy Days Means an Inside Project


Second items go into
the basket for the give away

These are the second items that went into the basket for the give away. Can any of you figure what they are? Aren't they happy? I think any of you would enjoy using them. ;-))
With the rains coming down and a bit on the gloomy side inside, what better way to add a bit of brightness than to hang a beautiful Fall wreath. I shopped the house and all the old boxes and put together a new fall wreath. The other one was looking a bit on the shabby side. Bad blogger (slapping hands) I didn't take before pictures. You have to trust me on this one, it was looking "very" shabby. This one is so much better. :-)) Nice and full , perfect for the back door to welcome all of you inside.
The sunflowers I've had for years, another perfect touch to go with all my fall decor. A bit of yellow gold tipped with red. Just my colors. :-))
A new wreath calls for a new bow. I purchased the ribbon a few weeks ago at Hobby Lobby while it was half price. A gorgeous shade of brown and a touch of gold.
And lots of pretty loops. :-))Here's a shot with the back door closed.
And a shot with the door open once again, A view into the laundry room and a wee bit of decor seen through the wreath. :-))
I'm so glad you stopped by today. I've sure enjoyed having you. I'm anxious to see if any of you guessed the next goodie that went into the basket.
hugs ~lynne~

You ladies put me to shame in the crafting and decorating department! I really, really love this wreath. The colors and the flowers are so beautiful. I have a thing about sunflowers in decorating, I love them. I think those are note cards or recipe cards of some sort. Hope today is a good one for you! Cindy

very nice lynne,
I have seen wreaths like that for over 30 bucks!
Good recycling skills here!
I love when you can reuse something & love it even more.

Oh the wreath is just gorgeous, and you do make the prettiest bows. I am still trying to learn that art. It is really hard. I think what went into the basket is some wonderful note cards. Hugs, Marty

Hi Dear Lynne! Oh, your wreath is so beautiful! You certainly have done a great job. Are those little recipe cards peeking through the fallen leaves? :)

Beautiful re-do on the wreath! The ribbon is gorgeous! (While cleaning out a store room, I FOUND most of my ribbon... I found enough to open a store! What was I thinking?!?)

I'm a very bad fall decorator this year - I've only put a few things out. I need to work on this or the holiday decorations may be skimpy too. ☺ diane
