Mr Rooster and a Wreath.

Hello and welcome to My Bella Rose!   Today I am linking up with Flaunt it Friday at Chic on a Shoestring Decorating, and Inspiration Friday at Southern in my Heart. 

I am slowly transitioning my home into fall decor.  I dressed Mr. Rooster with fall picks from Hobby Lobby.  I love H.Lobby!   I used a casserole dish to hold everything in place.  You can see a little bit of it on the bottom.   I bought the “fall” sign last year from H.L. as well. 


This wreath is hanging from a mirror in the living room.  Basically, I had the magnolia flowers on the wreath already.  I added fall leaves and picks to it to make it more of a fall look. 



And there it is hanging in front of the mirror.  That poor mirror just went through a lot of changes.  First I painted it a white antiqued style but the look just didn’t match my living room.  Then I painted a red shade and my this time my husband thought I was going bonkers!  He immediately said “no!” Ha ha!  Finally, I painted it a black and added Rub & Buff to the edge and finally I’m happy with it.  


  I hope y’all (do I sound like Paula Deen?) :)  have a wonderful Friday!

I was just thinking about you today while I was trying to make a bow. Remember last year's tutorial. Well, I don't know where it is and I'm so challenged in bow making. I did get one made with Hubby's help and it's on my front door wreath, but girl you would not be proud of me :)

I love the wreath hanging on your mirror. How do you get it to stay there? I love that look. All your fall decor looks wonderful and I'm so glad you are back to blogging on a regular basis again. Hugs, Marla

It's me again. Just as I was clicking out I saw your bow tutorial on your sidebar. Yeah, and I can't believe how easy. Why of why didn't I see that earlier today. That poor bow has literally been attached by wire and bending. Next bow I'll get it right.

Don't take down that tutorial, please please please. If it's on your blog I know I won't lose it in my piles of "important stuff" :)
