Look what I made!


I love finding a good deal, and today when I ran in to Hobby Lobby to buy one $2.00 clay pot, I couldn't resist heading over to check out their fall items when I saw a sign that said they were all on sale for 80% off. I love clearance shopping! I found this super cute basket and filled it with some little pumpkins and goards and a couple of sprigs for color. I know nothing about decorating, but I thought it turned out pretty nice. The kids have been warned excessively about not touching, so we'll see how long that lasts. Isaac already tried taking a bite out of one of the vegetables and left huge teeth marks, which prompted a severe tongue-lashing--I hope it sunk in.



Sareny picked out this little sparkly pumpkin, which really didn't fit in with the theme of my basket but I got it anyway and figured it could go on a table. She thinks it is hers, and I was trying to take her picture holding her pumpkin when I got the following shot. I missed the pumpkin, but she looked awfully cute.

So now our house looks a little more festive for the fall.

That turned out really cute! I'll have to try to copy it. Such cute little kiddies. Silly Igits. Sareny looks really cute in her dress and pigtails.

"Hope it sunk in" I love the wordplay!

Very festive vegetables, with two adorable tots!

Your cute basket arrangement is perfect and I love it! And soeday you will actually treasure those teeth marks. It seems to me I found a couple of teeth marks in one of my fake veggies recently....I honestly don't know if it was Isaac or Joshie, since they had both been here. You just turn it over and hope no one is the wiser. The kids are adorable in the pics!

Good tip on Hobby Lobby! I have been complaining about how I don't have any fall decorations, but now I have no excuse! Your basket turned out super cute.
