Photography Lesson at The Falls of Sioux Falls



Sioux Falls  is a beautiful place all year long as I've seen first-hand on my trips out there these past years, but the city really sparkles and the parks become just magical places after the first snow falls of the fall/winter season... 
Come along as we explore a bit of fun photography here at The Falls of Sioux Falls, South Dakota...

Styling a fall vignette  in our homes can sometimes be a little tough ~ like when you'd like to really go all out in your fall style and decorate more places within the home but are limited by budget.  I often feel like that, so today I'd like to share a few ways to make our homes beautiful for fall and still stay within a budget...

Share Your Style #179

Welcome to week #179 of Share Your Style!
This week, Meredith, from Southbound Blog is your host.

Hello there! I'm Meredith, and I'm so glad to be the host for this week's Share Your Style link party!

I'm honored to be co-hosting with these talented bloggers.

Please be sure to check out all of the links below and follow along with our blogs.  Following this group of wonderful ladies and getting to see all of their projects is one of my favourite parts about this link party!



Over at Southbound Blog, I share DIY & home decor projects.  Some of my favorite projects are:





 


I love the 'coastal farmhouse' style, which works perfectly in our home near the beautiful Georgian Bay in Ontario. When I'm not making over every room in our house, I absolutely love browsing other blogs for inspiration and new ideas of what I can bring into my own home. This link up is perfect for style inspiration!  I am so excited each week to look through all of the projects that get linked up, and I can't wait to share my favorites with you this week.


Here are a few of my favorites from last week:

I love everything about this DIY Farmhouse Console Table Plan with Drawers from Abbot's at Home!  The color is beautiful and I can't get enough of the cross detailing!  I would love to get into woodworking, but it just seems to intimidating to start using saws - I think I could maybe handle this one without the drawers ;) 




I definity want to try making some of these Easy DIY Wool Dryer Balls from Busy Being Jennifer!  I have some plastic dryer balls that make a huge difference in how well clothes dry in our ancient dryer, so I'd love to try some wool ones and see how they compare!




How adorable are these Chenille Fabric Pumpkins from Flamingo Toes?? I love that she uses a not-so-typical fall colour of blush pink, as it's one of my favorite colors.  I am not a great sewer by any means, but I think I could handle these!  And how cute are the spoons for a stem??





 Being so close to Halloween, I had to share these adorable Wood Pumpkins from Anika's DIY Life! She made them from different scrap pieces of wood and they turned out so cute! You can make them any color you'd like to fit in with any style of decor, while still having a halloween feel to them. 





I love these Budget Living Room Decorating Tips from Suburban Simplicity. We're about to start renovating our basement (it's currently gutted and waiting for the studs to be replaced!) which I know will be costly - so I'll be using these tips when it comes time to decorate the space!




That's it for this week! Congratulations to our featured bloggers. Please be sure and grab our Share Your Style button and share it on your blog. Thank you so much for linking up with us!

Places to Visit ~ Country Apple Orchard



Apple picking... Is there anything more fun in the fall than going to a local farm to pick out pretty pumpkins to decorate our homes and porches?  Yes!  When we can add gathering a bushel or two of the juiciest ripe apples fresh from the nearest apple tree...

Share Your Style #178

A graphic image of the Share Your Style linkup logo.


Welcome to week #178 of Share Your Style! 
This week, Kim, from Serving Up Southern is your host.

Hey everyone, Kim here! I am so excited about this week's party.
I'm honored to be co-hosting with these talented bloggers.

I'm sure I can speak for all of us when I say we would love for you to follow us on our blogs and social media. It's a great way to keep up with the latest and get to know us.



Recently over at Serving Up Southern, I shared:


  A mantel decorated with black crows, a human skeleton picture, a spider web with spiders, and pumpkins.


I love that Share Your Style has introduced me to so many new blogs. Several of the blogs that linkup are already some of my favorite haunts, but I'm loving the new (to me) blogs too. Thank you, to those of you who linked to our last party. You gave me so many choices, making it so hard to choose.

Here are a few of my favorites from last week:

Chinoisierie pumpkin sitting on a table
I love how Yvonne from Stone Gable made this Beautiful and Easy Chinoiserie Pumpkin DIY with designer napkins. I happen to already have some designer napkins here at the house. This just makes me want to have a crafting party with my girlfriends so we can make these. You gals know who you are. ;)


Porch decorated in beautiful fall decor.
Kristy over at the Starfish Cottage shows us How To Create A Beautiful Front Porch For Fall. She has put me in the mood to dress up my porch with some classic fall color. I love everything about the way she's dressed up her porch for the season.


Wooden pallet painted in fall colors propped on porch with pumpkins.
Jennifer over at The Magic Brush shows us An Ombre Painted Pallet Project For Fall. When I saw this I immediately turned to my husband and asked if my pallet collection (collect from building our house) was still out behind the barn. He surely questioned my motives in keeping every single pallet that showed up with building material on them. I assured him that a girl can never have too many pallets. This might be the first pallet project I do from my stash.  :)


Mantle with bat cutouts displayed in glass cloches.
Jamie over at So Much Better With Age shared this Bat Printable For Halloween (2 Sizes). I love the way she used them to decorate her mantle. Aren't they the coolest "flying" around in the cloches?


    Living room decorated with fall decor and a vintage basket. 
Karianne at Thistlewood Farms holds us in great anticipation with her Wait Until You See What I Found At A Yard Sale post! I couldn't wait to see what she had found! And boy-oh-boy did she find some yummy goodness! I love going to yard sales, and vintage markets and finding such treasures. Now go! Go and see what she found!   


Peanut butter pumpkin treats on a baking sheet.
Last, but certainly not least, Tracey over at The Kitchen Is My Playground shares how to make these Easy Peanut Butter Pumpkins. Aren't they just darling! I think I know several little girls that would just love to help make these treats.

Well y'all, that's it for this week. As I said, it was so hard to choose. I could have kept going but then this would have been a never-ending post.


Congratulations to our featured bloggers. Please be sure and grab our Share Your Style button and share it on your blog.
