We did it. We have unpacked and are all settled in. I even put up some fall decorations today and made one of them.

For our new house

It’s a little chillier here than in Jacksonville, so the fall mood has finally hit me. I wanted a wreath for our new door, but didn’t want to have to go out and buy anything.


So I grabbed up some stuff I had lying around. An old picture frame, shopping bags, string, strong tissue paper, coffee filters, coffee cup cozy, etc.

Then I sat down and had fun creating a wreath. Even though the materials aren’t very “durable” for outside, the door is pretty far under the roof so I don’t think anything will bother it unless a strong wind blows the rain that way or something. And if it does, it was free. Not a big loss.

And to my surprise, my hubby even liked it :)

And for fun, here are some pics of the princess watching us move all the boxes in and out of the garage.

How cool is she?

Doesn’t she look so cool?

Watching us move in

Now all I need to do is get back into a routine. I think that has been the hardest part. So many routine changes the past few weeks!

    Welcome to Pensacola! These past few days have been the first “cool” days we’ve had. You know,not 85 or 90 degrees! It’s nice to get a glimpse of fall!

    Hmmmmm…. To be honest I just played around with everything until it was how I liked it! lol. I do plan on sharing some “flower” tutorials in the future though.

    Yay! I bet it feels so good to have a place to hang a wreath on. That is what makes me feel completely home and unpacked. I love how good you are at detail. Very pretty wreath…and it’s free! Wow.

    Love the upside down sunglasses too. :)
