My kids made boats at Home Depot in the beginning of the month. I commandeer one of the boats, and added some peg doll pilgrims and Indians I made.

The morning after Halloween I was ready to purge/ clean. I wanted all the costumes packed, all the leaves tracked in from trick or treating gone. Apparently I got a little ambitious. By lunch all the Halloween specific decorations were gone and leaving only fall decor in which the pilgrims and Indians were added to. Turns out I was down a wreath. I hung my fall wreath from last year outside and made a new one for my wine rack.
I wanted it easy so I used my old school sizzix to cut out mini felt leaves. I wish I had dies with larger leaves but I do like the mini aspect. I also decides I wanted a mum garden on my wreath since in effort to save money this year I didn't buy fall flowers for my planter pots outside.
Of course I found thanksgiving subway art to match.

My family gets a kick out of me dressing up. So this year, I decided to be an owl. Hedwig to be exact. Thanks to pinterest it was real easy costume, and took about $1 worth of felt. I basted (large sewing stitch) the feathers onto the collar and the sleeves of a white shirt. I used this template.
