Frugal and Easy Fall DIY Decorating

Fall has arrived. Well, kind of.  The mornings feel like fall here, but by the afternoon it is summer again!  I waited, until two weeks into September, to start decorating for fall. I just couldn’t help it!  As we move into October, I will for sure be adding more decor, namely to the front porch.  However, for now the wreath is on the door, and I resurrected some past fall decorations and added a few others to our living space. {Read More}

But not this one! {Read More}

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ReadySetGro #CollectiveBias My daughter started some flower seeds in a “fairy garden” she had received in her Easter basket.  It is one of those little plastic greenhouses that you decorate on the outside, and then plant the seeds to grow them until they are mature enough to plant in the flower bed.
