Hey all! How on earth is it already the middle of October!? I mean, wasn’t it just June? And wasn’t yesterday just 1989? Oh wait, that was just all the 80s fashion that is back. Thank you so much to all of you for your well wishes on my health. I was sick for 3 weeks and was barely able to function. I am happy to report that I am 95% better. I just a tiny bit of a lingering cough, but I am feeling so much better. It’s a pleasure to be able to breath out of my nose again and to yawn without coughing up a lung. Don’t take it for granted, people.
Anywho, I’m teaming up with 75 of my bloggy besties to share TONS of fall decorating, crafts, and food ideas. That is all down below. But first, check out my awesome new fall felt wreath! I was really wanting to go with something untraditional and full of fun pops of color so this is what I came up with! I know, I know… my name is Talitha and I’m a wreath-aholic. I believe this is my 10th wreath I’ve shared on LPH. Its a sickness really. I think I need to start selling them to neighbors. Or better yet! Just start attaching them to peoples’ doors! If you live in the southern Denver, Colorado area and randomly find a wreath attached to your door… it is just me making room for my next batch of wreaths.
Okay guys. I am crazy excited about today’s post! I have teamed up with 110 other amazing bloggers to create the ULTIMATE Red, White and Blue Roundup! Yeah. You read that right. 110 new red, white and blue ideas. How awesome is that!? We have all created our very own patriotic idea to share with everyone today! Wanna see mine??
Our newly painted front door got a little partner in
crime prettiness! You know I have a serious weakness for wreaths (as evidenced here, here, here, here, here, and here.) Just the other day I realized that I haven’t created one in more than a year!! What!? What’s wrong with me? Have I been sick? Did my hands fall off? Nope. Not since the last time I checked. I just bought a house and have been putting my efforts into making our house a home. Silly me. Where are my priorities?? But I’ve been missing my wreath-making so I spent about an hour creating this little beauty. Check out my adorable Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath!

I would never call myself artsy. Creative? Sure. Artsy? No way. If you give me a brush and tell me to paint something, you would get something that looks like a 2 year old made it. Wait, that isn’t kind to all the 2-year olds. When I’m looking to create something a little more detail-oriented (i.e. anything but a blob), I turn to stencils. Stencils are my BFF. So when Plaid contacted me asking if I wanted to try out Ed Roth’s Stencil1 stencils, I was totally game. AND, better yet, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them… create DIY stenciled tea towels!
Hi. My name is Talitha and I’m addicted to shiny things. There. I said it. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? As much as I like shiny and sparkly stuff, I’ve always been a little afraid of glitter. I blame it on a first grade art project that ended with me washing glitter out of my hair for weeks! But, when Amy from Mod Podge Rocks emailed me asking me if I would review her new line of stencils, I decided that maybe it was a good time to give glitter a second chance. BTW, after getting Amy’s email, I may or may not have done a little happy dance while yelling, “SHE KNOWS ME!?!?” a la Buddy the Elf. Yeah. I know. Me = weirdo.
We are on our way to Chicago today to visit family for the holidays. So rather than scrambling to write a post in the midst of my mad dash to pack, do laundry, and clean the past few days, I thought I would share a few DIY oldies but goodies that I shared last Christmas. Christmas is just a week away but all 8 of these DIY holiday ideas are so simple that you can have them done in no time! Continue reading
