~how to make a succulent arrangement~

This is a really simple arrangement that you can make in a matter of minutes.
Start with your succulents of choice and pop their heads off.
Hot glue them to little dowels or even wooden skewers.

Place those in your container of choice. 
I like using old white pitchers.
For this arrangement, I made 4 succulent dowels, which will surprisingly last a long time!

Then just start filling in with seeded eucalyptus, lambs ear, and any other greens.
You can usually find these packs of "fillers" at your grocery store.

And there you have it!

A beautiful neutral fall arrangement that should last for weeks!

~the colors of fall~

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I just spent 3 days away from the kids, just my husband and I to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary.
We headed to the mountains and stayed in one of our favorite lodges. 

We spent quite a bit of time outdoors and the colors this time of year inspired this post.
If you'd like to see some great paint colors inspired from nature, read on.

I love the combo of Homestead Brown and Rookwood Amber here.

 The Dark Clove would be a great cabinet color with Flan on the walls.
 Tricorn black seems to be in each of these photos.
 Jubilee would be a great ceiling color, as well as wall color!

 I like Distance and Bosc Pear together here.
Stamped Concrete is a great color too.

This is the lodge we stayed in.

 And below are 2 houses that share the property, right on the river.

That Thunder Gray is a great color!

~comfy cozy faux fur~

Nothing says cozy to me in the fall and winter months quite like faux fur.
It's soft, warm, and very chic looking.
If you would like to visit my faux fur Pinterest board, you can do so here.
Here are a few of my favorite pins.

And here are some of my favorite sources for faux fur:

This gray faux fur lumbar pillow.

I have 2 of these blankets, I cannot get enough of them!

If you are going for that winter white look, look no further than here.

How about decorating for the holidays with these faux fur ornaments?

These shams are on sale, I have 4, soooo soft.

I also have 2 of these, I cannot get enough!

And finally, after typing all of this and looking at all this coziness, I would love to head off in one of these. Happy weekend friends!

~thrifty Thursday~ {French clock}

I was at the goodwill last week and came upon a pair of metal clock hands for $9.99 plus 50% off.
I would be lying if I said I hadn't been on the lookout for a pair.
I have forever been wanting to make a large clock.

While I was driving home I remembered seeing a large white metal table top at a friends garage sale last summer. Not thinking she'd still have it since it was a year ago, I decided to ask her just in case.

And guess what, she still had it and said she'd sell it to me for $10!

The tabletop is huge, 42" to be exact.
The clock hands were the perfect size.
I cleaned up the table and spray painted the clock hands black.

I found a clock image I liked online and penciled it all out before painting it.

My husband is going to weld the clock hands on, for now they are just resting there for the picture.

After I painted it, I did scuff it up a little bit with some sandpaper to age it, then sealed it with a matte varathane.

Now I just need to find the perfect spot for it.
Not bad for $15!

~Jillian Harris crush~

While walking around our local HomeGoods yesterday, I turned around and Jillian Harris was standing right there.
All I could say was, "I love you"
What a dork.
She was super sweet and offered to take a selfie with my phone, which of course agreed too.

Is she not the cutest thing ever?
So, I thought it was fitting so show her house here via Style At Home, enjoy the tour.
