Romantic Autumn Decorating {a look back}

Those of you who have followed me for a long time know that I am a romantic at heart. And for years, "romantic" was my only style of decorating. I loved anything frilly, girly, vintage, white, and pretty. Even though my style has evolved to be more rustic, eclectic and bohemian, I still enjoy looking back at pretty vignettes from years past. Today, I am sharing some romantic fall decor with you in another installment of my {a look back} series.
First, we are heading back to 2007. Josh and I were in the process, that fall, of moving from our one bedroom apartment to a two bedroom townhouse.

Vintage Thread Ball Mini Pumpkins

I am excited to be participating with so many talented bloggers this week in the Festival of Fall hosted by The Everyday Home blog! I am sharing a super easy diy craft that you can make in an afternoon and reuse year after year: mini faux pumpkins made from vintage thread balls.
This project is so easy! All you will need are some vintage thread balls (that you can usually find at thrift stores or antique shops), some small sticks found outside, and green sheet mossor excelsior wood shred (*affiliate links).

Halloween Burlap and Scrap Fabric Ghost Family

Halloween will be here before we know it. Time to get those spooky decorations out or make your own! My mom and I made this family of friendly ghosts (to replicate my husband, myself and our two little ones), in one afternoon, back in 2012. This is a no-sew project...hooray! I know how everyone loves those.

I am sharing how we did it today as part of my {a look back} series. We made these right after my son Owen was born, when I wasn't doing much blogging. I love giving you "a look back" at these projects now and hope that you enjoy them as well.

Vintage Eclectic Gallery Wall

Do you love gallery walls as much as I do? I can't get enough of them, and find myself creating them all over my house. A few months ago, I shared one that I created in my art studio, over on Jennifer Rizzo's blog. Today, I am sharing it with all of you...my lovely readers! You know I love you, right?

I hope you enjoy this little peek into my art studio (let me just preface this by saying the rest of it is nowhere near done, ha! Someday...right?) And if you read this post, I mentioned that I will eventually be turning this room into my children's shared bedroom, at which time I will have to say goodbye to this gallery wall {insert my sad face here}. But, those are the things you gotta do sometimes when you live in a small house. And I will get to enjoy it until then...
There are so many great posts out there about planning out your gallery wall, how to arrange it just so, and step by step tutorials for putting it together. I think those are awesome.
