Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone! 

 It's a cold, dreary, rainy day here but that's not going to ruin my day! I'm excited for the weekend ~ Princess will be staying all night tonight with us & then tomorrow I'm hoping to take the kiddos to the local Applefest or a pumpkin show (I can't decide! lol).  They are calling for a chance of rain but maybe we'll get lucky & get to go have some fall fun!

Just a reminder ~ my giveaway ends this Sunday ~ I'll be drawing a name for the bowl & all the fixins & bowl fillers, so if you haven't signed up ~ whatcha waitin on?!?! lol

Okay now for my newest obsession ~ FALL decorating~ I have another picture to share with you.  Last weekend I kept seeing these ghosts everywhere I went ~ Country Living Fair, a local craft store ~ but they wanted between $45-$60 for one! Holy Cow! I was soooo not paying that price so I decided to make me one instead. In the end it cost me about $5 which was for the cheesecloth & really probably wasn't that much because I used some cheesecloth for my mummy earlier in the week. 
 Anyways ~ here's the pic:





I LOVE how he turned out! I'm getting ready to make my aunt one today ~ she wanted one @ Country Living this weekend too.  It was so super easy to make!

That should be the last Fall decorating pictures for this week ~ I want to put up our scarecrows & decorate outside but yesterday was the only day it didn't rain & I couldn't get the stuff out of the top of the garage without the hubby's help & he wasn't home, SO if it dries out next week I plan on working on that.  Until then here's my next project:



I've been debating on whether I should paint this cabinet for awhile now & finally this morning I decided "why not?" .  So as of now it is totally torn apart in my kitchen waiting for some new paint! :O) It holds our canned foods so my kitchen looks like there was an explosion or something! lol I guess I better get back to it so maybe it'll be done before the hubby gets home. :O)

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I'll be back on Sunday!

Love the ghost. Too cute. Can't wait to see the cabinet and what you do with it, but I love it just like it is also. Hope you have a fun day tomorrow and the rain holds off. I would vote for the pumpkin show. That just screams fall to me. Take care and have a great weekend whatever you do.

Love the little ghost you made. I think it is more fun to make one that to buy. Great job.
Can't wait to see the re-do on the cabinet.
