It's here!!! It's here!!!!

is officially here! The best month of the year (in my humble opinion).
Everything is warm and inviting. The smells are spicy and calm, the sun falls on the earth in a softer way. The crisp air in the mornings feels amazing after such a long hot summer here in the Carolina's. I LOVE it.

Exciting news...I was featured here on this cute blog

by Kim at

who was making a guest post. She loved this tiny graveyard I made last year.
Awesome huh?

I will give a short and quick tutorial on how to make it.

I bought the tiny headstones at Micheal's. They are for the mini spooky town's and haunted houses. I can't remember the exact name of the company that makes them but they have a whole aisle for all the things you can buy to decorate them.

I took some green moss, piled it in and make some mounds a little bigger than others. Just go for it. You want it to look organic, not perfect.

I placed them where I thought they would look best, then simply hot glued them onto the moss.
Voila~ a mini graveyard.

Everyone who came to my house had to go close to it and inspect it. It is enchanting.
I called it my fairy graveyard ;-)

Here is the link when I blogged a little about it last year. The post was for a Halloween blog party and all of the pictures are mine, and all of the decor was mine, and I will be explaining how to make a lot of the projects in the next few weeks.
The headstones in my yard are a blast to make and last forever. So come on back y'all.

It's October!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!
