I am so excited about the new wreath that I just
made bought from Homesense. Can you believe that before today I didn't own a single fall decoration?!?! I have some spooky Halloween decorations but no cozy-fall-type-stuff.
My excuse? Back-to-work craziness. Every late summer/fall since we've owned our house has been all-consumed by back-to-school frenzy. By the time I'm settled into a routine the fall decor has all been sold and the stores are overflowing with Christmas stuff. Slow down, people, slow down!!!
I made a real effort to stop in at Homesense after work yesterday. Oh my goodness I forgot that shopping can cure all of your woes. For a little while, anyway.
I'm not usually a fan of faux greenery but I went down the wreath aisle anyway. I'm so glad I did because I came home with the cutest wreath ever. It's also my very first fall decor item. (The first but not the last, muh ha ha ha!) AND, it was only $14.99.
Now that the front door is taken care of, I think I'm going to bring a stash of coupons to Michaels tonight to see if I can find the supplies to make my own wreath for the side door. It will be my first one. I'm excited! If it's ugly I can always put it on the back door where no-one will see it. ;)
Have you started decorating for fall yet??? I feel like I'm behind!
