October In Review

Oh. My. Goodness. Am I the only one that can’t believe it’s November 1st???

It’s officially time to start decorating for Christmas… I’ve been busy planning for it for weeks… I just can’t believe it’s already here!

Anyways, here’s October in review, just in case you missed anything!

I started off the month with our Chalkboard Sign Pole… I can’t wait to change it up for Christmas!

And even though I’m already getting everything out to decorate for Christmas, I’ve still got amazing plans for our Thanksgiving table. One of the things I can’t wait to use, is my denim leaves!

And I ended the month showing you how we’re preparing for winter… We installed window inslulator kits and they couldn’t have been easier to put up!

Here’s to November!

Lovely comments so far...

  1. I am SO glad you do these re-caps. So many times I forget about printing out a post, for inspiration, and then can’t find it. These re-caps give those of us who suffer from Senior Moments, a second chance. :-)

    Love, love your kitchen!!!
