It's Fall Y'all

It was another perfect fall weekend. We went apple picking, which is always a favorite. My four year old has been begging to go. We now have an over abundance of apples, so it is time for apple pie and apple crisp and applesauce. I also love that the kids can just grab an apple from the bowl and if they don't finish it, which is most of the time, I don't even care. Plus a bunch of the apples are smaller, just perfect for the kids.  I love fall, it just needs to last longer.

I have been tweaking my fall mantle, I just wasn't happy with it. Actually I am just sick of the picture hanging over the mantle. It is too dark and is going against my plans of lightening things up around here. So for now it goes into the basement.

Here is my updated fall mantle:

Much better and brighter. Here is how I made the chevron picture and I will show you what I used to make the chalkboard this week. It was something I had on hand because I was too lazy busy to go to the store.

Here is a before and after shot. Just switching out the artwork make a huge difference. Of course now I have a empty shelf on the the other side of the room, but I will worry about that later.

I made these little velvet pumpkins last year, pre blogging. I loved them and got a little carried away, I made a bunch of them. Maybe this year I will make some bigger ones.
