An outdoor fall yard tour
Since our likely last heat wave has yet again broken, my mountain ash tree is reminding me that fall is right around the corner. The orange berries are nearly ready to drop, which means it turns into a local feeding frenzy for the birds! Not ideal since my picture window is near. So once again, it’s time to think of things that will keep the birds from my window. Any ideas on what works?
All about Ikea slipcovered sofas
And fall. I guess. All I find myself wanting to do is clean everything before thinking of the next season. Do you go through that too? In fact, I think I’m going to pull off all the sofa slipcovers and get them washed up today as it’s a good windy day to dry them on the line! Hmm… this may be a good day to get a Part 3 on my Ikea slipcovered sofas story, and that is how I maintain the covers…
Upcycled Fall ideas
Plus, this just may encourage me to decorate for fall and get a few fall projects on the go too… we can hope!
This was yet another busy week offline, so I once again forgave myself for this season I currently am in, and will simply raise my hot coffee up to your own projects you brought over this fine, creative weekend. Thank-you. Once again.
So let’s check out some fab features from last week’s party…

How to hand paint furniture
This beautiful side table is not decorated with a transfer. This beautiful koi image is hand painted and this tutorial takes you every step of the way so you can give it a whirl too! Isn’t it so calming?
Make outdoor solar light illuminaries from bottles
Being that most stock plastic beverage bottles for recycling, here’s how to turn them into whimsical solar light luminaries to decorate your garden with! Oh how I’d bet they look spectacular lit up at night through those colored stones!
Craft easy and adorable pom pom gnomes
Since most have seen yarn turn into pom poms, here’s a tutorial that takes it one step further, creating these darling gnomes with the cutest tall hats! Goodness these are sweet, and would look super festive if hung as Christmas tree ornaments as well! Where would you hang them?
Painted hex barn quilt on reclaimed wood
Well now, the idea of reclaimed wood and paint to create this pretty and rustic barn quilt fragment certainly caught my attention! Adore how it’s easy to customize with colors or size. Fun piece that could be used for decor or is, or perhaps add a few hooks to hang up your keys!
Fabric door pocket envelopes for storage or wrap
Because you likely have a few favorite fabric scraps you don’t wish to part with, pull them into action with these pretty hanging door pockets, shaped like envelopes. How cool! These would make wonderful gift wrap too!
