It's been raining which makes it easier to stay inside and create:
|Rain on window looking out at Fall Foliage|
I'm adding to my rustic ornaments for the farm tree...making felt owls and reindeer and a burlap tree skirt.
Plus I want to make some of these burlap snowflakes Gail over at Purple Hues and Me makes. Pop on over to see how she does it here. I'm going to use white burlap for mine and glitter them up.
While you're there, check out her super cute owls, like this one. I need some. :-)
I'm on the look out for twig balls also. Not sure how much they will cost...I might end up making some using burlap and twine like my cone Christmas trees:

I picked up this paper mâché reindeer. He is going to get covered in Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer book pages .... I won't tear up the real book. Instead I will photo copy them. I will use the same technique I used on my book page pumpkin. I need to find another one…
And I'm making one of these wreaths here from Virginia at LiveLovelyDIY. I bought a bunch of ornaments from Wal-Mart in blues and silvers:
|Not using the grapevine wreath…instead I have a styrofoam form|
Other than that, I am working on my ornament for the blog land ornament exchange and putting together a gift box. Mine came in already from Colorado. I'll be sharing that soon and linking up with Vicky so we can see what others also got.
Have you started decorating for Christmas yet?
Enjoy your Thanksgiving. I will leave you with pictures of our Fall foliage at the farm - it's been a good leaf year here for a change.
