A little fall and a project

Okay Melissa is having a Fall Nesting Week at the Inspired Room so I thought I would join in I hope I did all the linking right lol

I am so ready for fall! I have a little bit of stuff out but I need to get in the dreaded laundry room and dig out everything. If I could just get rid of this headache I have had all week I might have it all done. I can't wait to get my pumpkins and mums. Here's the top of my computer cabinet turned scrapbook cabinet in the corner of my family room.

Here's my basket I made from my front porch I showed it once before but here it is again.

I have to show you one more thing I thought I would try my hand at making a tassel for my kitchen so I used my salt and pepper chicken and rooster from the family dollar they were a dollar for the set so it it didn't turn out I wasn't out to much. But I love them and they look so cute in the kitchen. So what do you think?

Sorry the chicken is so dark its the same colors as the rooster.
Have a wonderful day:) Go check everyone else out!!

I couldn't stop laughing as I read your blog. I first spotted the Longaberger baskets on the top of your computer cabinet. I sell those wonderful things. Then as I scrolled farther down I found Brutus. We are also huge OSU fans and have a massive Brutus in our front yard!

Those tassels look awesome! I made one, but it doesn't look nearly as good as yours. I also love your fall basket arrangement. I have got to get busy with my fall decorating!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for the kind comments! Your basket arrangement is fabulous and I absolutely adore your tassle! It is so pretty! I'm just starting to make tassles and it is so much fun isn't it? Love the ribbon loops at the bottom of yours! :) ~Rhonda

Sorry off the topic at hand... Those tassels are darling!! I want lessons!!

Oh and one last thing...
