Fall decor

Ok, so I have joined the world of pinterest and there are so many great decorating ideas. It makes me want to do lots of decorating. For now, I used some fabric pumpkins I bought at Gold Rush last year. I decorated my mantle with them. I really like how it turned out. The Gold Rush festival in Dahlonega is so much fun. Knowing that I would be married in our own house, last year i stocked up on decorations. Pumpkings, stockings, wood bowl, and framed photos that spelled out our name. Speaking of Gold Rush, it is next weekend! Really hoping I get to make it up there!

Oh, and our new wood burning stove makes the mantle look pretty good too! I'm so excited about having this when it gets real cold. Enjoy fall! Winter will be here before we know it, or want it!

New Additions!!

Well friends, it is time to introduce the newest members of our family! Here are Sierra and Echo, our border terriers.

They arrived this afternoon via Delta Cargo from Arkansas.

The only bad part about that meant Friday Atlanta traffic. But, it was well worth it! We were so excited to get them home. They are adorable. Much smaller than I pictured, but that is even better! Sierra is a lot smaller than Echo, but she is definitely the feisty one. We were able to play outside with them for a little while, then brought them in.

Love this picture!
When we got them home we realized quickly that we needed another crate. One was not enough. We got on Craigslist and found someone who had two for a great price and we were able to get them tonight.

After a vist from my mom and sister, we are all settled in! Looking forward to spending the day tomorrow as one big happy family! Have a restful weekend!
