Love, Pomegranate House


A Story of a Cheese Board Turned DIY Cloche

As you may have noticed, I have a love of all things thrifty. I love starting out with something and turning it into something else unexpected. Because of my love of thrifty things, I tend to frequent thrift stores a lot. Imagine that! Finding thrifty things at a thrift store!? Who’d a thunk!?

Love, Pomegranate House: DIY Cloche from a Cheese Board

As I was walking the aisles at my thrift store I happened upon this adorable little cheese board. And, well, there is no need for a cheese board in this house. Why, you might ask? I love cheese. Sure, you might say you love cheese but I loooove cheese. Give me just about any food with cheese on it and I will eat it {notice I said “just about”. Don’t go sending me pickles covered in cheese.} Therefore, cheese does not last long in this house. So, I thought I could turn my adorable little cheese board into a little cloche!

Rustic Fall Centerpiece

I don’t know how many of you have noticed, but Halloween is HUGE in the blog world! Everyone has been decorating for All Hallows Eve for probably close to 3 weeks. But you haven’t really seen much over here on LPH about Halloween. Let me explain why: my family was not big into Halloween.

We went trick-or-treating, passed out candy, and decorated for Halloween when I was little. But even then we didn’t go all out. As Christians, we weren’t into the scary aspect of Halloween and focused more on the “fall harvest” aspect. Then, when I was 12, we moved to a pretty secluded house and we never ever got trick-or-treaters. Boo. So the Halloween decorations went into storage and didn’t come out again.

And since we skipped right over Halloween decorations, we dove head first into FALL! That is why I love decorating for fall! You’ve already seen my fall wreath and my fall mantel, now I get to show you my fall table centerpiece!

Fall Rosette Wreath

Hello all! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was spent relaxing. I didn’t even break out any crafts! How strange. And a happy October to you as well! I can’t believe it is already October. My how the year has flown by.

Randomness: Happy 5th Anniversary to my lovely hubby! 5 years ago today we became a couple! I knew from that day on that I had met my soulmate. I love you!

In continuation of my fall decorating, I created a fall wreath! I’ve mentioned once or twice or 10 million times that I love wreaths. They just scream “WELCOME” to me. Actually, mine says it directly on there… but same thing, right?

Fettuccine Alfredo & Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Some of you may have realized that I’ve been on a bit of a food kick as of late. I promise this isn’t turning into a foodie blog {I don’t have┬áthat┬ámany recipes to share!}, and I will be getting back to my usual DIY posts soon. But I’ve been in a cooking and baking mood since the weather has turned and begun to feel like fall!

I started by sharing my Perfect Pumpkin Roll and earlier this week I shared my Slow-Cooker Chili! Now… I have a real treat for you: my Fettuccine Alfredo & Parmesan Crusted Chicken. This recipe has become famous with my family and friends who have come for dinner.
