TA-DAH!!! Here it is!!! It no longer has falling apart issues!!!! Hurray!!! Last week, I headed up to my DD's bf's grandma's to make pine cone wreathes with bf's mom, grandma and great aunt. We had so much fun. Each of us collected bits of nature to add to the wreathes for a couple of weeks, bought our wreath forms and headed to Grandma O's. They have always used Liquid Nails to adhere the bits of nature but this time we all had issues with the bits falling off. Eventually, we got it all to stick! :-) Hope you like it!

Hanging on my covered front porch. It still needs to be sprayed with gloss but I had to see it hanging! (Click to enlarge)

Cute little pumpkin baby!

To goodness!

To this creepy spider with web!!! (DD's pumpkin)

To this scary monster (bf's pumpkin)!!!

To these yummy roasted pumpkin seeds! Soooo good!
The weather is back to being pretty and warm-ish! Oh so happy! I think it should only snow on Christmas Eve! Realistically, this is Michigan but I will enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
Hope you all enjoy your Thursday! Hugs!!!

Kim, the wreath is elegant and homey/cozy-looking at the same time. Makes me think of cloves and cinnamon simmering. :o)

I"m back and glad I popped in to see what the "ta dah" is. It looks great. I want one :0).
Those pumpkins look fab! I've never roasted my own pumpkin seeds before. Is it difficult?
Well, I'll bet you all had a grand time doing all the fall type festivities. Enjoy your warm-ish weather. I'm so done with mine :p
