Autumn is my most favorite time of year!
It’s still eighty degrees out, but I’m embracing all things fall.
I’m all about pumpkins and leaves and cotton up in here (up in here)
This is what it looks like when the pumpkins aren’t gathered up by Baby K.
There are other little collections in the living room, but I chose to share this one because I like the way it looks best.
My God, y’all! The light in this house never ceases to amaze me.

Thing 1 and I set up a wrapping station in Thing G’s old room.
We moved the desk to the middle of the room and sorted gifts into bags so we’d know what’s up.
All the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows on the bed ready to make things merry and bright.
Wayne and I are kindred spirits.
And one of my most favorite things about Christmas is wrapping gifts!
I love to create beautiful packages for the people I love.
Husband N asked me if there is one, what is the word that means to create something just to then destroy it.
I actually don’t know if there is or what it might be.
He then told me my Christmas gifts are the perfect example.
You know, he’s kind of right.
I make them because it pleases me to give gorgeous gifts to my family. I don’t care if they get ripped up and destroyed in the opening. Because they’re beautiful in the meantime and that’s what matters to me.

YBW and I decided to make wine bottle candle holders for the tables at our reception. We’ve been saving bottles for a bit and ended up with two dozen.
I watched loads of youtube videos and read everything I could about how to do it. We got a wine bottle cutting kit and went to town.
YBW started to score them while I got the next step ready.
We tricked the bottles into breaking by dipping them in simmering water and then into an ice bath. This worked the way we wanted it to most of the time…some of the bottles broke in ways that were undesired, and a even a few that were unexpected.
We sanded them and cleaned them and lined them up.
We started out with twenty four bottles and ended up with fourteen that we could use.
Add a bit of sand and a tea light and voila, a cool decoration for the tables.
We’re so dang crafty.
