Pottery Barn and Budget??

I know what you're thinking...Pottery Barn and budget in the same sentence? Can this be done? Yes, it can!! As I posted earlier, I am getting the itch to decorate for fall. Besides the fact that I tend to get really overwhelmed with decorating (big ideas but not enough time...); there's this thing called a BUDGET. I have somehow stumbled upon decorating blogs (beware: you will get addicted and waste LOTS of time) and found this one that I am LOVING! I was inspired by the simplicity of this project and the fact that she did it on a budget!

Lindsay shows in this post how to create your own "build a pumpkin" kit for very little money. It is so simple that I plan on doing it! I also found some other great websites that show how to decorate for the holidays on a budget. I will post more of these later this week. For now, go to your nearest craft store to purchase your materials and get busy! I can't wait to hear from you guys if you tried it or not. I'll be posting pictures of my finished product, so stay tuned!

hi thanks for stopping by. nice to meet you. your girlie girl is beautiful. I love her name. so are you a stockpiler ? I've read a little about stockpiling on other blog and it seems really awesome. what is the term OOP? (see I don't know much about it). I buy those veggie bags too and also get the ones that are rice with veggies in them. my daughter loves those. I also love love crafting. those pumpkins are adorable. I am dying to get to Michael's craft store to browse through the aisles and get some ideas for fall. in a day or two I'll be posting a Fall/Halloween wreath I made, so I'd love it if you stopped by again. I look forward to reading your blog. your mother is so talented. that bo peep costume is lovely. my mom was a seemstress when I was a child -- I wonder if she'd like to pull out the sewing machine now in her retirement years!
