Farmhouse Fall and Studio Progress

With the wedding just around the corner, I've been busy making lists and working on those last minute projects. We're pretty much ready but I'm afraid of leaving something at home that I'll my dress. Ha.

We're meeting with Megan and Dylan tonight to go over everything to see what still needs to be done but I'm feeling pretty good about it all.
Today will be my last post before the wedding, so I'm going to take a detour and actually share some Fall around the farmhouse. I took most of these pictures before the wedding stuff invaded the house.😊

Thanksgiving sign on the mantel - perfect with leaf garland and a string of lights:

This pillow from Stein Mart has a softer feel - Love the big green pumpkin behind the 2 orange ones:

Remember the kitchen towels and placemats I found? Here they are made up into pillows. The fox and squirrel make me smile:

And the Sunflower ones turned out beautifully! Sunflowers say &qu…

Repurposing Bits and Pieces for Wedding Signs

Well, we are now less than three weeks from the wedding. Hard to believe, right? I feel like I have so much to share but today I will stick to a couple. My friends gave Megan a shower - they did a great job decorating and all.

She got lots of nice gifts - she was excited to get nice stuff to replace all the old college housewares. :)

A friend had an old crib that no longer worked so she asked me if I wanted it. Of course, I said yes! I instantly knew what I'd do with the pieces.

But first, I needed to paint the arrow signs and entry sign onto old fence pickets. I sanded the wood just enough to get a smooth enough surface for lettering, then painted the arrow pickets white.

Next, I laid out a stencil and traced my words. Then I started painting.


All the rails got a good coat of chalk paint.

Someone Hand Me A Hankie

The wedding is just a month away, y'all! And we are up to our eyeballs in projects:

Paper flowers

Wildflower seed packets to toss

Yard games

And so many other bits and pieces of planning:

We strung up lights outside.

We talked about where the directional arrows and signs needed to go.
I checked the length of the string to see if I had enough to string along the path. There is.

We stood on the hill Monday with the Bluetooth speaker and played music to see if it would work. It did.

We had Bruce drive the truck to the drop off place to see if the noise of the truck drowned out the music. It didn't.

I stood next to Megan talking about the big day and I started crying. Drat it. My mom was a crier. It always embarrassed me. I swore I wouldn't be one. And yet here I was, tears running down my face. Mom, your legacy lives on. 😂
Can someone hand me a hankie? I think I need a pretty one for the big day.
