Thirfty Makeover: Fall Door Decor

Ummm, hey...it's me again. Got another little fall project I wanted to share with y'all. This cone shaped basket was a Goodwill find from a few months back. It just screamed Autumn. I mean not literally because I suppose that would just be obnoxious.....a screaming basket and all. But it was definately giving off that "fallish" vibe so I saved it for the season.

The first thing I did was to remove those grape thingamajiggies.
 
Then I painted the basket using the dry brush technique that I used on my distressed coffee table.
Added some fall foilage and hung it on my door.
Easy peasy.
Can you believe I allowed my door to go nekked all summer long?
 
Speaking of nekked I've got some peeps I'd like you to meet.
No, they aren't in their birthday suits {that I know of}
It just seemed like a natural way to shift this conversation, don't ya think?

Meet Jenna! Baby A's Bows was started in 2010 after I had my daughter and I quickly realized that the cost of cute hair accessories was somewhat out of my budget. I decided to make my own and wondered if there were other mom's out there like me who wanted all the cute accessories but didn't have all the money. I started my Facebook page in 2010 and opened my Etsy store in 2011. I am thrilled to make quality products, but at a more affordable cost.
 
 
If I ran this world I swear I would make it a law that little boys had to always wear tuxedos and little girls always had to adorn their noggins with bows.
Jenna's bows are precious and this one would go great with my ladybug invite don't ya think?
Double points!! The gal reins from Purdueland, my alma mater. BOILER UP!

Next up Aimee! I am a wife of nearly 16 years and stay-at-home mom to two wonderful children. I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember and have far more hobbies than I have time! In what little spare time I do have, I enjoy sewing, reading, scrapbooking, and of course, spending quality time with my family! My Scrabble tile necklaces started off as a gift for my children's bible school teachers. I received such a wonderful response and thought, "This is my chance, my opportunity to become my own boss!" Two years ago, I opened up Sugar Lane Shoppe on Etsy and it's been an amazing experience! Never did I imagine it would grow to where we are today. Every day, I am thankful to all those people who have helped me realize my dream!
 
 
I first stumbled upon Aimee's jewelry back when I was looking for graduation gift ideas.
These necklaces are such a fab idea when you're shopping for your mom, friend, aunt, teacher, neighbor, bus driver, barista at Starbucks....you get the point.
This one would be perfect for a mommy-to-be and this one has one of my favorite quotes.

 See I told you they weren't nekked!
Now before you head off to visit all these fine people I have a quick question for those of your frequently peruse blogs?
Do you spend time catching up on blogs in the morning or evening?
Or perhaps at work on the toilet in the middle of the day?
