Well it's here. FALL has arrived but it really doesn't feel like where I live, it is still in the 80's but I can't wait for it to cool down so we can wear our Fall clothes and decorate for the season. Here are some inspiration photos to get you all in the mood!
Well it's that time again, Back to school is here... I am sad to leave Summer behind but ready for the new school year. I am ready for some schedules a little or really a lot of football and new beginnings but not ready for homework and packing lunches!! Ready or not here comes 2012-2013!!!
I decided to try a little mod podge treatment on an old terra cotta pot the other day and it turned out pretty cute! I took a few pictures along the way. It is sooo easy to do this transfer, don't be surprised if you see all of my pots outside turn into pots like this!
1st I painted the pot with a Martha Stewart paint in "Tailors Chalk". I did this very quickly and not to neatly but I thought it didn't really matter, a plant will be in it, right?

Then I found a french graphic I liked on the "Graphics Fairy" blog and used a matte finish Mod Podge to adhere it to the pot
I let it dry overnight and then used a little water to peel off the paper and voila it turned out great!
I really like it even with some sand and a candle in it.
Try this technique it is really easy and looks great!
Well, yesterday I got inspired to do a few 4th of July decorations in our family room. Of course I didn't want to spend any money on this because it will probably be up for a week or so. So I went outside and cut some flowers from the backyard and then went to my scrap booking drawer and found some blue and red scrapbook paper along with some ribbon. I went into the kitchen and pulled out some pitchers, I just happen to have a red one and had to decide which white one I wanted to use and then through it all together. It is definitely festive and I hope it will help make the holiday a fun one!
A family shot on our last night of vacation. We are in Philadelphia, PA at a Philly's game. Guess what? We had a rain out. I ( being from California) have never experienced a rain/thunderstorm like that before EVER!
That in itself was so exciting but we didn't even sit in a seat or see a ball pitched. Oh well, it was a blast anyway. We still ate cheese-steaks and bought souvenirs...
I think we are looking a little HOT and SWEATY but with smiles on our faces!
