  1. Wow, Robin! I love everything! I wonder how you make that wreath? Perhaps the base is a wooden frame? Hmmm.... Lori

  3. So cute. I got so excited about a garland you posted weeks ago that I ran out and bought all the items I needed to make said garland. I still have my lights and garlands in a bag in my room. Maybe I will put them up tomorrow. Love the pumpkin idea. M

    I am thinking and praying for you! M

  4. Thanks for showing the lovely halloween/fall decor ideas. That barn box would look just right on my window ledge. Those custom pumpkins look amazing, I would never have thought to do that.
    Thinking of you.
