Not a very good blogger

I'm not a very good blogger, I must admit.
I get lost in everyone else's beautiful blogs and I feel inferior!!

What I like to do best is spend my free time looking at everyone else's blogs, getting inspiration, then working it into my home.
This is what I did in my spare time last week.

I made some burlap banners for fall.
I've fallen in love with the look.

The colors make me feel so comfy and cozy.
Do you love it? Would you like one? Read to the end and see how you can!

Before this little project I was attending my last show and event. It's a lot of work, and fun too. But it will be my last one unless I have a partner to help.
Here are a few pics of the things I brought.

I made almost everything I brought. Pillows, necklaces, jewelry bags, headbands.

The cutest little trees in burlap bags.

A suitcase table!

One of my garden Conservatory's.
