A few little things...

First, congrats to Cara Hall for winning the butterfly teepee!  As a reminder they are just $15 and make a fun Christmas gift!  A question was asked about dimensions...Kallee said folded up they are about 5 feet high, but very easy to store.  They comfortably fit two to three children inside.

Next, my friend Charlie made this darling Halloween wreath I had to share.  These wreaths are fairly simple and can be done for almost any holiday with the right color tulle!  She bought a wire wreath frame from Roberts (not very expensive) and black and gold tulle (I'm guessing 1-2 yards per color).  Loop the tulle around the frame and measure out how long you want each piece to be.  I'm sure it's easiest to get all your tulle pieces cut before tying.  Just loop pieces around once and tie so the ends are even.  For the full wreath make sure your pieces are pushed right up against each other.  Charlie also wrapped cute ribbon around the frame and added the sign.  Love it Charlie!  Thanks for sharing!

Lastly, I had to give mention to my friend Karin who used tips from the blog to make her own headboard!  Turned out great Karin!  And she found the same great mirror Lisa has in her front room from Hobby Lobby!  If you have completed a project from tips on our blog send us a picture!  We love to see the results!

Took a stroll through Taipan yesterday and they have SO MANY fun things right now...Halloween, Christmas and your everyday decor is there.  Stop in and use your 25 percent off coupon...if you aren't getting them, make sure to sign up in store to receive their mailers!
