what outside looks like

i made this wreath. i'd give a tutorial but i think it's pretty self explanatory. i'm still labeling this post in the diy/tutorial category though. i had all the supplies for this in my craft collection except for the wreath. and i'm not sure that is a good or bad thing. i could spend hours walking down every aisle in hobby lobby (which eventually converts to $$$$$). no wonder it's called "creative center", it really gets my creative juices flowing. i think it kinda makes me a bad mom too because the other day that is where trudy spent her afternoon nap. in the cart. while i mosied around. i think i might (finally) post pictures of the actual rooms in our house. i'm just trying to make a cameroonian hat for a wall and then all should be good. i tried the tutorial on design sponge but it did not work (which was really sad). so we shall see how it turns out, i just love anything with texture. i do not consider myself to be a professional decorator at all, however i love making each room a place that is calm, pretty and "barnesy".

apparently i like design sponge projects... see my first wreath here. and has anyone ever noticed that twine smells EXACTLY like cow manure? like E-X-A-C-T-L-Y. as soon as i pulled it out of my box the house smelled like my grandma's farm. linked up here.

I love it, Brittany! The colors and textures are so fun. Wreaths are my favorite. When we own a home someday I want to have all sorts of wreaths for all of the different seasons. And I'm all for you posting pictures of the actual rooms. You have such great taste!

Kelly said...

I agree. I love your taste. Also, you may have been reading my mind cuz I have been browsing for weeks now for the perfect wreath. I L.O.V.E. this one.

Ok I just caught up on your last few posts, and I just have to say, I love everything about the Barnes' especially the incredibly adorable, darling, cute little Trudy Barnes! Can't wait to see her in real life so I can kiss her all over!

I love the fall colors. We currently have no wreath on our door, so this will for sure be on my things to make list:)
