Free Printable Thanksgiving Banner

DIY Projects and High End Free Printables
This free printable Thanksgiving banner is the perfect little addition to your fall decor. It's definitely the season to be GRATEFUL (although, I'll stop and say I'm working on being GRATEFUL all year!). 

Free Printable Thanksgiving Banner | Grab this free buffalo check GRATEFUL banner for your fall decor.
I wanted to create a little bit of buffalo check fun to match a couple of chairs in my dining room. I feel like fall is like the perfect season for buffalo check, too. So, this free printable Thanksgiving banner was born. It's got a little bit of watercolor and some simple fall color to it. Hope you enjoy it.

Make this simple kitchen sponge holder to keep your sponge off the countertop. It's a fun little project and makes a great housewarming gift, too (just gift with a pack of sponges!).

Collecting Vintage Books

DIY Projects and High End Free Printables
Collecting vintage books is pretty much my jam. 
But I'm pretty specific on the color, y'all...

Collecting vintage books is a fun way to decorate on the cheap! Find all sorts of these at thrift shops...group by color for a great look!

 I like blue books and I can not lie.
You other thrifters can't deny...
That when a book is blue, in that certain hue
And it fits well in your space,
You get THRILLED!

Okay, so that last part really didn't work out with the original lyrics, but it's probably not the best song to be quoting...I just couldn't help myself. I love blue books, but more specifically...aqua blue books. It's the easiest, cheapest thing to grab at a thrift store...and great to build on over time. See how collecting vintage books is helping me fill in my living room built-ins below.
