Whoo’s There? – DIY Owl Wreath

Country Living Magazine inspired DIY Owl Wreath via www.twopurplecouches.com

Some seasons, you’re feeling your wreaths, and others, you aren’t. That’s the case this Fall. I’m just not feeling the Fall wreath I made a few years ago. But when I came across this owl wreath in Country Living Magazine, I knew this was it. So I set my sights on creating my own version of this DIY Owl Wreath to Fall-i-fy my front door!

One of our favorite standby meals around here is tacos. I mean, it doesn’t get any easier, or tastier, than seasoned meat, tortillas, and toppings! So turn tacos into soup and we’re totally on board and our bellies are in love. I’ve been making this Spicy Taco Soup recipe for years, and it continues to be a favorite.

Modern Fall Entryway Decor

Beautiful and modern Fall decorations make this entryway a cozy and welcoming space. via www.twopurplecouches.com

A few weeks ago, I shared my Modern Fall Mantel, and today I’m sharing another Fall-i-fied space in my home: the entryway!

Initially, I wasn’t going to change up the entryway decor. It’s pretty much looked the same since its first big style overhaul, which you can see here, and again here. But after playing around with the mantel, I couldn’t help but rearrange some items in the entryway. And then before I knew it, I’d re-styled the whole thing!

Now that it’s officially October, I’m in the mood to add some more seasonal touches to my home.

I put a poll up on my Facebook page last week asking which people would rather see: A.) my Fall home tour or B.) a simple Fall craft. B won by just a single vote! (Don’t worry, I’ll do a home tour too!). So today, I’m sharing a super simple craft to make your own Autumn-inspired art using pressed leaves.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Milkshake

Treat yo self to a delicious & creamy Pumpkin Spice Milkshake! via www.twopurplecouches.com #psl #pumpkinspice #milkshakes #treats #Fall #FallRecipes

I’m bracing myself to be shunned by nearly all of humanity when I admit this, so here goes nothing… I’m not a fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. *runs and ducks for cover* 

I love pumpkin spice and pumpkin flavored things: pumpkin pies, pumpkins cakes, pumpkin muffins and cupcakes and all number of other pumpkin-flavored baked goods. I like to enjoy my pumpkin baked goods with a nice warm cup-o-joe. I just don’t like all the pumpkin flavor dumped into my nice warm cup-o-joe.

But pumpkin spice plus a couple of scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream? Ooooooh yeah, now we’re talking!
