I have recently discovered Caitlin's blog, Southern Curls and Pearls, and I am obsessed, y'all! She has the most darling taste and is just gorgeous. While scrolling through old posts, I discovered a DIY project from a site called Shop Sweet Things. You can check out the project here. I thought this was a super cute and easy project so I headed to Target to buy supplies. I hit a snag when I couldn't find the small black dots so I decided to use what I already had, which was black paint from my pumpkin painting craft. The end result didn't turn out quite as cute as the original, but it'll work! :) 

I've been loving using Polyvore to create outfits lately. Here's my newest Polyvore creation and today's outfit, which features my newest favorite color combination of blue and green. 

While recently reading through my favorite blogs, I learned about the most darling etsy shop called Amanda Catherine Designs. She has gorgeous prints that I can't wait to get my hands on, but what caught my eye were the pencil sets. After scrolling through the entire shop, I decided on the Gentle Reminders Set and the Paris Set. These charming pencils are sure to make lesson planning a little more fun :)

I spent my Sunday painting pumpkins. I have seen such cute pumpkin painting ideas here lately, so I thought I'd give it a go. It was such fun! I had to quit because I ran out of pumpkins so I may just have to pick some more up and have another painting party next week. :)

I saw this neat idea in the October issue of HGTV magazine (I have recently discovered this magazine and WOW! Love it!!). It was super easy to recreate and adds a nice little detail to my black and white pumpkin. 

Isn't this sign adorable? My crafty Mom made this :) 

Of course Reese had to be involved every step of the way :)

Reese loves this cat, but it sometimes annoys her, which is what's happening here.

And here.

Isn't fall fun? :)

I spent the weekend gathering mums and pumpkins. While it might not feel like autumn here in Alabama, I'm more than ready to sip apple cider and watch Hocus Pocus. :)
Happy October!
