I made these large cornhusk wreaths a few years ago, and after some of you watched my fall home tour video last week, I’ve had lots of questions about them.

You can see the post that has all of the details of how to make them, and a funny story about how I got the cornhusks here.

My husband and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary on Thursday!

We did an overnight stay in Ft. Worth and stayed in a really cute downtown loft Airbnb, had a drink at the cutest Speakeasy bar, followed by a fabulous dinner and ended at a jazz bar.

It has been so crazy busy lately, so it was good to get away for a while and take a deep breath.

We have been together for 41 years and married for 38, and I can hardly recognize those kids on the left.

and some other amazing things I found…..

this yummy pumpkin spice hot chocolate….

beautiful ideas for decorating with pinecones….

another cute version of a cornhusk wreath….

I just found this Christmas garland yesterday and love it! I have big plans for this, so I’m ordering more today while they are on sale, and before they’re gone!

This one is a fraction of the cost of some of the others I have looked at on-line.

And my all time favorite sweatshirt is back in stock this year. I discovered these several years ago, and fortunately they keep coming back each year and adding different colors.

They are so comfy and I love that the cuffs and bottom band aren’t fitted or tight. Very generously sized, and you can’t beat the price!

I hope you found some inspiration at our Saturday Morning Gather today!

blessings and have a wonderful weekend,
