Re-purposing Dollar Tree Finds

There are few You Tube channels that I watch or follow, but I love Do It On a Dime!  Katherine’s channel is fun, inspiring and also full of brief videos.  If you’re not following her, you need to check out her channel!

This week she posted a video about re-purposing a couple of Dollar Tree finds.  She inspired me to give it a whirl.  Here’s what I did with mine ~

Fall Decor 2018 – Living Areas

Being a lover of summer, I waited until the first day of fall before I pulled out my fall decorations.  Now that it’s all out, I’m smiling at those cooler breezes and autumn skies.  There is definitely something truly cozy about fall and its decor.

Twinkly lights and warm hues…

Pumpkins of all sorts – fabric and ceramic.  An old mason jar with a battery operated votive inside adds a little whimsy and shine to the tabletop.

My desk area got a new chalkboard design.  I found a drawing that I liked, then I made it my own…

I added my list of books I love to the binding of the books.

My kitchen chalkboard is my favorite.  I found this idea on Pinterest and then drew it in my colors and added the leaves.

While my girls and I were on our trip a couple weeks ago, I suggested we make a simple craft together.  Neither of them having the love for crafting that I do, so I wasn’t sure how they would respond.  I sent them a picture of a fall banner and they loved it!  I assured them it would require very little skill.  They were happy and I was too!  We were going to get to craft!!!

What the Preacher’s Wife Wore

It can be hard to know how to dress when the seasons are in transition.  Has anyone else struggled with these fluctuating temps?  I’ve had to learn to layer pieces together so I don’t have to completely change outfits in the middle of the day.

I’ve found it helpful to keep some of the lighter pieces I’d wear in the summertime out to wear with warmer sweaters or jackets.  Short sleeves or sleeveless tops/dresses under a heavier layer is perfect when it’s not freezing cold yet!

Today I’m sharing a video few of the outfits that I’ve worn recently to keep cool/warm as the temperature changes hour by hour.

I love wearing  these light layers right now!  What do you enjoy wearing while the season is changing from summer to fall?
