Give a girl some ribbon...

and it becomes the gift that keeps on giving.


You might remember the pretty ribbon FawnDear had tied my prize with, and you might've noticed that it made an appearance tied to the little witch hat sign on this post...well, it's found yet another new home.


Here's our entryway topiary decorated for Fall:



with dollar store bittersweet vines and a pretty bow...


Close up of ribbon...


I've got Azorean beef stew simmering in the crockpot (has cinnamon & all spice in it...delicious), and Li just baked some chocolate chip cookies...it almost feels like fall around here...almost.

Thank you to Restyled Home for inspiring me to get out there and decorate my urn!

That looks so nice. My front doorway has no decorations at all. I need to channel my inner Martha and get busy.

Look at you being all Martha Stewart-y! Way to keep you using the decorations. It looks terrific!

Mmmm. Chocolate chip cookies. Sounds better than my Reese's cups. What's in Azorean Beef Stew? I've never heard of it, but then again I'm not a big cook. lol.

Oh Natalie,

You just totally made my Day! Seriously, you did. I love that the ribbon is still giving. Thank you for sharing.

Natalie said...

Awww, thank you! :)

Click on the words and it'll bring you to the recipe I followed. My house smells soooo good right now.

And the temps are dropping tonight so we picked up wood and s'mores fixins, hooray!

That plant is so cute!

The stew doesn't sound so good. But thanks to the link to the blog, cause maybe there are some other crock things that I might like.

Oh my! I have a pot of chili on and turtle cookies in the oven. (However, we have an inch of snow on the ground.) Do great minds think alike, or what? :) That berry vine is from the dollar store? I'm gonna have to run out. How nice!

Hey there!! That topiary is awesome! Love it. I can't believe that is dollar store berry stuff.

Natalie said...

It's from several years ago...I used it back in MA to decorate my chandeliers and I've been down here for 3 already...maybe 5 years old?
