I went shopping yesterday to take advantage of all the sales on fall decorations. I found eight round place mats to go with the turkey plates I bought at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago. The fall floral picks I bought at Jo Ann's. Underneath the plates are a few pieces of paper I will use to make place cards. We only have a small gathering for Thanksgiving but I like making place cards anyway.

Again, I was inspired by a blog. Again, I have no idea who to give credit to for this pumpkin inspiration. I must confess, I read a lot of blogs, I mean a lot of blogs! I do know that after I read the post I went to my local dollar store and bought six pumpkins. That was in early September and could be the reason I have no idea where this idea came from. I do know that these will be on our Thanksgiving table.

I made a few apple clippies, this time I thought they would make nice notepaper holders. I am sure Miss Lavoie can use them. I am finishing up the paint cans. I am still stealing glass jars from the recycle bin. This was a pizza sauce jar. I am going to buy a few mason jars because as hard as I try I can not get the pickle scent out of the pickle jar.

A few months ago I came across a blogger that had papered her tea bags. I do not remember the blog, if anyone does know the blog or if it is yours, please let me know. I always like to give credit for what inspires me. The blogger wrote little notes on the tea bags. They were so cute. It would be nice to fill a jar with tea bags and give it to a friend.

Have a wonderful weekend. I will be watching the games and maybe being a little creative. Fall weather arrived yesterday and I am not very happy. There is nothing I can do about the weather so I will be positive and enjoy everything Fall has to offer. Okay, I want sunshine, warm summer nights, green trees, sandals, eating outside...

I just wanted to share a picture of the curtain I made this morning. I can not believe I actually finished a project, really finished a project. I do not like the cream ribbon bows that much, but that is not a major issue. I can sew two fabric ribbons later today. I have been wanting to make a fabric covered shade for this window. All you need to make one is a cheap vinyl shade, fabric and fusible webbing. That will be a project for next week.

Last week I saw so many cute Halloween decorations at TJ Maxx. There was a small pillow with a black cat on it that caught my attention. I always think, I could make that. When I get home I usually forget, so I went right to Michael's and bought a piece of felt. It did take a few days but this is my version of what I saw. I made it so it could go on a doorknob. However, all my doors are painted white so it did not photograph that well on any door in the house. Believe me I tried!

I am not sure why I stamped the flower on the post card image but it sure does make the tag colorful. I used a lot of scraps to make these tags...always a good thing. Buttons are certainly a good thing.
I had a lot of fun making these. They were "no brainers". They would look great tied on the small brown gift bags I know I bought a few months ago. Where did I put them....

I would have never picked out these colors for myself, even though I like them very much. The pillow goes great on the couch in the living room. I may just have to make another for myself.
