Fall is my favorite season! I could actually say that about all the seasons, but fall really might just win by a nose... I did fall in love in the fall :) I love fall colors, and smells, and food!

Football is also my favorite sport, so the fact that it's starts in the fall is lovely too. We got to go to a Louisville game for Britton's Birthday. We tailgated and everything. It was a blast!

Have you ever seen a lemon drumstick case? Our other dear friend Joe had his birthday in September. He is currently the drummer in a band called the lemonwedges. I couldn't resist using the lemon fabric. I finally mailed his birthday present this week! I am such a slacker about mailing things on time. I finish them and then they sit waiting to go to the post office. Silly me! He should have gotten it- and I hope he likes it. Happy belated birthday Joe!

I am thankful for the joy that I get from being creative and productive. I had such a fun day.

Not dead :)

I haven't died, just been busy living and crafting. My sister, Kristy, has been kindly reminding me for awhile that I should update. :) I have quite a few things to post... it's been months! sorry. I have been busy making the chateau a home. I am loving having our space. I definitely have more projects going at a time now that I have the space...

This was an early September project that has been almost finished since mid-September.... keywords- almost! Sorry Casey! One of my great friends "got" this teris blanket for his birthday... Except I haven't quite finished it.... It is granny squares that are stitched together in their 4s and then together. I need to put this in a more prominent place so I quit skipping over it. Each square is about 4 inches and its 10 squares wide by 16 squares high... So about 40x64. Should keep him warm- if I can get it done.

This is my baby ironing board. The cover was sad and pathetic and so I recovered it using my pillow sham from my dorm room bedding. I loved it and figured putting it someplace I see frequently would bring me more happiness than it hiding in the closet.

I am also going to try to post things I am thankful for... So today I am very thankful for my husband. I am thankful that our self-esteem is found not in ourselves, and that we know where true love and security is found. (can you tell it was an interesting evening)

Visit Deux-

Welcome back :)
Kelly asked for me to clarify, so hope this helps, My spaces are now highlighted with boxes :)
This is the living room on the wall across from the doorway is the couch. I am thinking of painting this wall.

Moving clockwise is the chaise, and a table, my new favorite garage sale chair that will be re-done when I can choose a fabric.

On the opposite wall from the Couch is the entertainment center (it is next to the door).

And on the right is a small bookcase/Roxy the goldfish. and the doorway to "the studio".

The studio should be the dining room, but we only have a kitchen table so it is my space for now! :) I am loving it. I feel so organized and inspired I love the lighting from the huge windows too.

Toward the bathroom and bedroom is the "bonus room" or 2nd bedroom. It is the game room and lives up to its title. Britton has every old school gaming system except a few and this is home to his massive collection. Now that he's finally got most things put away there is room for the futon we are getting, so it will be possible to use it for company, when necessary.

Back through the dining room is the kitchen. It has a huge empty wall that i am scheming to fix... (I think it might need Casey, who I recommended come visit me next month.

Ps. These are ribbon and button bookmarks that a girl from work and I made. They turned out really cute! I love the taxi, treasure map, and patriotic ones the most!
