24hrs till Autumn!

I have no patience, I'm always jumping the gun. I'm sure you knew that, I mean I do have a Halloween blog, in SEPTEMBER. LOL

Anyway tomorrow is the first day of AUTUMN. WHOOO WHOOO.

In honor of Autumn falling upon us so quickly, I've made these cute little flower decor boxes. I've seen them at Walmart for $5 and then I saw someone on another blog make them as well. I can't remember who you are, so if it's you let me know and I'll share the love, right here in this post!!

What do you get when you combined the following ingredients + Black Acrylic Paint and a Paint Brush?

(all items you see were purchased for a $1. No the whole lot wasn't a dollar, each item was $1)

Answer:

A fall decorative flower box.




As per usual, they always look so much better in person then on camera. I just have a crappy blackberry cell phone!!

Not bad though for my first time working with fake flowers, even better, making anything like this at all. TOOOT TOOOT TOOOT (me tooting my own horn).

Autumn, as we call it, is my favourite time of year too. I collect roses, before they are fully open, and dry them. Red ones are especially beautiful as they turn out almost black, a really dark red, and white ones turn out a dark cream colour. They look gorgeous in an arrangement for Autumn. I also have a Red Maple tree, and the leaves are just beautiful.

Thanks for clarifying, I was confused what toot was. Just kidding! I love it, looks so cute, even with your crappy cell phone.

Hey Lisa,

The Office comes on Thursday nights, Army Wives comes on Sunday nights at 9 my time..not sure what time it would be for you, you might just want to check local listings if you don't have another show that comes on Sunday nights!

Melissa said...

What a cute project... I wish I had more time to do stuff like that!!

BTW- thanks for the warning... I will probably still come by and read it though, as I know you would like for lots of people to hear about your mom (as I do)!!
And I know what you mean.... my 2 WORST months are June (my mom's birth month) and January (her death month)!!!

Melissa said...

Oh and I took your blog button.... it is too cute; who did that for you? i think I need a "redo"

Future Mama said...

I looove fall too!! And that's a nice decoration you have there! I can't make ANYTHING!

Loving your blog! Stopping by from MBC (even though I'm not a mom, so I hope they don't kick me out) to say hello! You have an adorable blog :) I'm a Future Baby Makin' Machine, trying to prepare to become a mommy! Hope you'll share your wisdom with me!

Kristin said...

It's time for me to bust out the Fall decorations!!

Mama Mel said...

I LOVE Fall decorations! :)

Glad you received the monkey! That was fast! They told me up to 5 days... glad they were wrong (for the better)! ;)

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...
