iPhone Case!

 With the much anticipated turning on of a cell phone tower near our home we now have great cell phone service in our home! Husband and I decided to get new phones (we were using models that my pre-teen niece wouldn't know anything about!). I found this cute fabric on clearance at Hancock's Fabrics. It is by M'Liss and I just love it!

 Here is a pic of it all closed up and being cute!

Here it is open. I used Velcro to close it. 

Here is a peek at the interior fabric. It's also from the same M'Liss line. Adorable! I just love my new phone and cover!

I got the tutorial here.

Fall is on its way!

We are having crisp nights and cooler days here in Kentucky! The beginning of September means it is time to decorate for Fall! Fall is my favorite season. All the beautiful colors, the farmers working to harvest their crops and the smoky smell of tobacco barns working overtime. The clean crisp smell of Fall is like no other smell and I'd rather be no where else but here in my Old Kentucky Home experiencing every minute of God's beautiful splendor. I hope you take time to reveal in this season. 

I've been decorating my home to welcome Fall and wanted to share some pictures with you. I made this wreath mostly from things I found at Wal-Mart on clearance last year. 


Here is my staircase with leaves and pumpkins:

 I fixed up a couple of these baskets with some random pumpkins, pine cones, and leaves.

I have never made anything quilty for fall because I never really had any fall fabrics. I changed that problem this year and am working on turning these cute appliqued pumpkins into a throw. I'd also like to make me a table runner and a table topper but we will see how far I get with those plans. Christmas is approaching fast I have to get to work on gifts!

Happy Fall Ya'll!
