Inspirational Fall Decor

October already!  I am loving the fall weather here in Colorado, since it finally decided come, it just makes me happy. :)

I recently read one of my favorite books...again, it must be for the 5th or 6th time.  It is called "The Witch of Blackbird Pond".  In it the main character mentions the exciting feeling at the start of each new is sort of thrilling...ahh I love that story...Oh, sorry- I am rambling!  But doesn't fall make you want to just curl up and read a book?!

Speaking of fall, my friend Denyse from Glitter Glue and Paint has invited me to be a part of her creative team where we share some of our seasonal projects, and you guessed it, we are sharing some of our fall Decor!

Succulent Planters from Light Fixtures

Hello again!  I am back with another fun repurposed project for you today!

You know I love to be thrifty and repurpose, and so do my friends (my friends that live by me, cause you are also my friends)...which is why this project was possible.  My friend Leslie gave me her old bathroom light fixtures when I went to pick up some jewelry from her, she is amazing and has beautiful affordable jewelry that she makes...oh wait, I am getting off subject...right.  Light fixtures.

These light fixtures intrigued me, well the curved glass did, and I kept pondering on them each time I passed by in the garage...what to do with them?  Hmmm.  I eventually came up with today's project, Succulent Planters from Light Fixtures!
Don't throw out that light fixture, use the glass to create beautiful succulent planters for your home, full tutorial at MyLove2Create.
Ok, I guess technically it is Succulent Planters made from light fixture glass, but it was just easier to say light fixtures, so I went with it.

Now let me tell you another fun thing, not only am I sharing a repurposed project today, but 7 of my awesome DIY friends are sharing repurposed projects too, it's your lucky day!

DIY Triptych Frame

After my kids being in school for a full week things are calming down.  Of course we are into cross country season and that makes our weekends crazy and fun filled...and I love it!

It has been a long time since I have had a chance to get back into regular blogging, I felt a real need to focus on my family and not stress about projects or blogging until my kids were back in school.

The moments and the memories we create in our home far outlast any project or post, and my kids are growing so much faster than I ever could have imagined possible.  I have been trying my best to make the most of it, even if there are moments of tearing my hair know, with six kids life isn't always peaches and cream.  Right?  Unless you have a secret to share???  I am all ears!

Just know I am here, and have big plans for the future to be better and share more.  More projects and more of me.  What?!  I know, just what you wanted!  :) Muah ha ha ha!!

But enough rambling...I am loving my latest project that is seriously so fun and versatile.  It makes me giddy.  A DIY Triptych Frame.
Not only is this DIY Triptych Frame from MyLove2Create easy to build but it makes a huge statement in the home, with endless possibilities of displaying art, family photos, and even seasonal art.  This is a must do project to fill a large blank wall too!

Rustic Ironman Medal Display

In my Updated Corner Shelf post I mentioned that we went to Disneyland as a family, well that isn't all we did. :)

We started our trip in Northern California so my husband could do his 4th Ironman Triathlon, which he got to complete with his brother.  Yay!!  It is always an amazing experience to watch these athletes pushing themselves to the limit, a true test of mental and physical endurance.  I have nothing but admiration and respect for every single one.  They inspire me.

So I thought I would make a Rustic Ironman Medal Display for my husband. 
I am loving this easy way to display Ironman medals, but it would also work for ANY type of medal collection!  This is a great gift idea too!

Updated Corner Shelf

Holy Guac!  I have been gone for a while, and I have missed you, my awesome readers!

After I attend the Haven Conference, that I mentioned I was at in my Floating Night Stand Post, we left on a two week family vacation.  It was amazingly fun and a much needed treat for our kids (and for me and my husband too), as we ended it with 5 days in Disneyland! Yay! :)

This week has been a relax and recover week, and it was much needed also.  Ha ha!  So, I thought I would share with you my Updated Corner Shelf that I posted earlier this year on My Repurposed Life...since I have been, you know, relaxing and recovering.
I love how this Updated Corner Shelf was transformed with simple touches like raised stencil decals, trim, and paint.
