7 Simple and Frugal Fall Crafts & Decorating Ideas

***After you enter this amazing giveaway, be sure to enter the HomeRight giveaway here!***

I’m going to be real honest with you guys. There most likely will not be lots of new fall decor at my house this year. I would just rather spend my time working on stuff I will see all year long than just for a month or two. That doesn’t mean I don’t love fall – I do. And I will still put out my fall decor from years past, just not anything new. So, here are my favorite fall crafts and decorating ideas I’ve done in the past that may be oldies, but still goodies.

This whole concept was the brainchild of Carrie from Making Lemonade and we love her for it.

My style is one of my favorite things to talk about, because well, I do like to talk a lot, but most of all, I want you to see that you don’t have to go by the textbook when decorating – be a freak.

Oh, and we are having a BIG Signature Style giveaway on Friday – don’t miss it!

If you are hopping over from Ciburbanity, welcome! And if you aren’t hopping over from there, be sure to check out Charlotte’s beautiful signature style after you leave here!

It has taken me a long time to truly find my signature style.

A really really long time.

In my former life, my home was Shabby Chic to the core. Chippy white furniture, light greens and pinks, even little teacups and saucers as decoration.

Those of you that follow my blog regularly can pick your jaws up off the floor now.

I know its hard to believe that my style was once so different.

But ya know what?

That style wasn’t really me.

Nor was the strictly modern or cottage-y look or anything else that I tried after shabby chic.

None of them were really me. 

Last year, I found myself mixing vintage, modern, and rustic elements.

And shockingly, it worked.

And I loved it.

And it was me. 

Oh, and it was Grunt Labor too.

I guess it’s kind of important that he like the style of our home too.

So I did what anyone with do with something they loved -

I ran with it.

How to Clean A Ridiculously Gross & Dirty Sidewalk + A HomeRight Giveaway

**Don’t miss the giveaway at the end!**

I am almost ashamed to show you just how gross my sidewalk was.


But I know that you guys understand the concept of real life.

Real life that involves neglecting things such as the sidewalk while focusing on much more important and fun things such as a kitchen makeover or just chasing around the circus at the park.

When we bought the beloved foreclosure, the exterior was the last thing on our minds. It may not have been that pretty, but there was nothing wrong with it and we would have rather had a functional kitchen and bathroom rather than a pretty exterior.

So we didn’t really touch the exterior except for some painting on the porch and a semi-makeover on the screened-in porch.

This summer I kicked the screened-in porch up quite a few notches with a complete (and super colorful) makeover.

And then I looked at our sidewalk.

And realized just how disgustingly gross it was.

James Dean Inspired Vignette {Summer Style Soiree}

 I had absolutely no clue what I was going to do for this round of the summer style soiree until yesterday.

It wasn’t because I don’t love James Dean – I do. Its just like I was all out ideas – brainfried.

Then I eyed the ottoman I picked up on the world’s longest yard sale for a whopping $8.

And I thought James Dean.

It seemed like something he might have in his home in the 50′s before he died.

And then I looked across the room at Grunt Labor’s retro-ish style chair.

I spied a James Dean inspired vignette coming together.
