Hi everyone and happy December!

Quick post today…just wanted to share a new free printable I’ve added to the Sweet Maple Lane free printable resource library. A free printable chalkboard banner! I’ve printed out ‘BE MERRY’ with the Christmas tree in the middle and hung it above the tv (where the ‘FALL’ banner was in this post). I don’t have a picture to share yet, but I’ll share a pic on Facebook this weekend!

Tis the season for holiday parties!

Whenever I’m invited to a party, formal or casual, I always like to bring a little something.  Sometimes it’s food or drink, sometimes just a little something to say thanks.

During the holidays there are so many parties that sometimes they can sneak up on you.

We’ve been packing our weekends with fall festivals, pumpkin festivals, apple picking, and all sorts of fall fun.  My kids have already had a couple opportunities to wear their costumes, but for those times when they want to be festive and Halloween-y, but they can’t wear their costumes, I whipped up these cute DIY Halloween shirts for less than 5 bucks each!

Fall is in the air here in New Hampshire!

The weather has actually been super hot and humid the past few days, but the leaves are starting to change, which is one of my favorite times of year.

I finally took out all my fall decorations and started to sprinkle a little autumn cheer here and there around my house last week. I’m hoping to share a few pics soon!

I had a few fall pillow covers from previous years that I used on my couch,

One of my favorite pieces to use when decorating are farmhouse style pitchers. They are fairly inexpensive at Amazon, Michael’s, Target, etc, and they are super versatile pieces to have in your decor. You can keep them up all year, and easily change out the accessories to add some seasonal decor.

Below are some ideas for using farmhouse style pitchers in your decor.

Fill your farmhouse pitchers with:

  • fresh flowers from the grocery store or market or wildflowers from your yard or neighborhood
  • mini American flags for 4th of July
  • dried or faux flowers in fall and winter
  • real or faux branches
  • evergreen clippings in winter (clip them off your Christmas tree like I did!
