Fairytale Fall Front Porch

Hey it’s almost fall y’all and that means the porch needs to be spruced up!

The Little Princess and I spent the day fluffing, primping and basking in the gorgeous fall day.  Colorado has such amazing fall weather and the colors; oohhh the colors just make me smile every time I see those oranges, reds and golds.

This is my brand new chalkboard that I made using the mirror off my now gorgeous buffet.  I love it!!! Not sure where its permanent home will be but for now she will hang out on the porch.  She is HEAVY so I have to have Prince charming figure out a cleat system for her.

Such a yummy view, all I need is a cup of warm apple cider and book and I would be happy as could be. I could sit here all day but unfortunately I have things to do.  That sweet green picnic basket was my grandmothers, the green is crazy bright but it is original so I don’t think I want to paint it and it adds a fun pop of color.  It reminds me of Granny Smith Apples so it goes with my whole fall theme!

I hung my adorable rustic ladder to act as a candle chandelier.  Prince Charming made my ladder for me out of scrap.  Did I ever mention how awesome he is?  Sorry ladies he is off the market!

There is a blanket just waiting to snuggle.  I will try and keep the cider warm just incase you want to stop by and just sit for awhile!

Prairie Pastry Shoppe-The Bake Sale

Every year our school has a big carnival, and this year I wanted to try a bake sale for fun.  Mostly because I like to pretend I have my own store that I can dress up.  It’s my adult version of playing dress up I guess. The end result was a gorgeous boutique bake sale and it was a huge, huge success.  We had over 800 items for sale and we sold out. We hand wrapped each and every one of those items, thank goodness I had a fantastic crew of bakers and packagers.

My Martha in crime Anne had this adorable piece to add to the shop, which we filled with smore’s pops.  Anne is so much fun to work with, she gets me, she helps me take my crazy schemes and turn them into a reality.

Chippy old ladder shelf.  See the car from Roger Rabbit?  Prince Charming and his dad made that when they were kids, he was perfect for some carnival atmosphere.

When as the sun started to fade we turned our little lamps on, adorable don’t you think?  It was my my favorite part!!

It was a ton of work but so worth it, we took in over $500.00 and the families had so much fun coming in and shopping.  One sweet boy bought a cake for his grandma’s anniversary.  I hope they let us do it again next year!
