I can’t believe another month has come and gone! I hope everyone had a great month. Let’s rewind in time and see what’s happened for me in October…
Canton First Monday Trade Days
Well, this October I discovered the Canton First Monday Trade Days. Wow, oh wow I must say! This flea market is a DREAM for vintage and antique lovers like myself. I absolutely loved it and as I sit here in early November typing up this post and reminiscing about October, I must share that I loved it so much that I attended again just this past weekend. Antiques galore! I highly recommend it.
I decorated my front porch for the fall and added a little bit of Halloween flair with my Jack-o-lanterns. I also made my front porch a little bit country by adding my steer skull.
New Plants in my Garden
Also, I am very excited to say that planted some fruit plants this month. I added raspberry, blueberry, blackberry and strawberry plants. I learned through some research the fall season is a great time to plant these as it gives them to time to establish themselves while the weather is still nice. I learned that these plants will go dormant over the winter and will devote their energy to strengthening their roots. I hope they bloom in the springs! I’ll keep you updated.
Austin City Limits
I took the hubby to his very first ACL Music Festival! Among my favorite shows were Awolnation, The Strumbellas and the Chainsmokers!
DIY Faux Shiplap Laundry Room Make Over
Last but not least- I bought myself some power tools! I am now the proud owner of a miter saw, jig saw and nail gun. With those tools I transformed my laundry room from 90’s to amazing! I found a material that is lightweight and easy to use. I also found the perfect shade of white to create an airy and beautiful space. I am still working on decorating my laundry room but for now I am happy with the results.
