Crochet Addict!

It all started with a hat I ordered off Etsy for our new bambino and has transitioned into a full on obsession with crocheting!

What a fun craft to get into.  All you need is your yarn and a hook.  It's easy to start up and stop at any time, which is fantastic for a mom with a little 4 year old that pulls your attention away from anything you attempt to do that doesn't involve them.  In 2 days I have crocheted 2 button scarfs and it couldn't have been more relaxing, fun, easy (well once I got the hang of it), and rewarding!  It is so neat to see that you created something so intricate with just a hook, ball of yarn and your hands!

Now all I want to do is learn new stitches and different things to make!   Crocheting and knitting have endless project possibilities.  Not only can you make items for yourself, family, friends, and baby, but you can make awesome items for your home too, and I am not talking about blankets and tea cosies here folks!  Check out these amazing crocheted and knitted items for your home which are simply stunning!  I wonder what my next project will be...

Decorating with Pumpkins

Wow...has it ever been a long time since I updated our blog.  The reason is not because I don't care, it's because we are expecting our second child, and the past few months have been pretty rough!  Now I must tell you my first pregnancy was a breeze, I didn't have one second of morning sickness whatsoever, however this pregnancy couldn't be more different.  I started having morning sickness week 4, I was also dealing with low blood pressure which was making me extremely light headed and fainting spells!  Now that I am in my 6th month I am feeling so much more like myself, albeit quite a bit larger in the tummy :)  But I am happy to tell you that I am back and will continue to update our blog on a more regular basis!  Thanks for sticking around, if you did :)

Now onto today's post!
I am not sure where you are located in this wonderful world, but where we are from, Ontario Canada, Fall is in full swing!  The leaves are changing colour the breezes are brisk and the pumpkins are ready to harvest.  There is no better way to decorate your homes indoors or outdoors, than with nature.  Branches, acorns, pine cones and of course PUMPKINS.  Below I have put together some Fall decorating ideas that use a variety of pumpkins and squash.

Enjoy!

There are endless options when it comes to painting your pumpkins.  You can do any colour and also incorporate stencils, ribbons and anything you have on hand to make a pumpkin look extra special.




Hollow out a squash and use it as centre piece.

Put a pair or panty hose or patterned nylons over your pumpkin.  This has to be the easy way to add elegance to your pumpkin!

Try twine, rope, yarn etc, to add a decorative element to your pumpkins

Why not use the endless number of buttons that you have collected over the years.

And of course there is always the option to add GLITTER to your pumpkins...a girls best friend!
