Wowee! How can it be November??? Wasn’t it just summer?
Don’t get us wrong!
We LOVE this time of the year and we have lots of fun things in store for you all but…whew…time is flying!
Can we get an Amen?
Before we get to the Features from last week’s fabulous party, we wanted to share with you what has been happening around the Fence this week.
First, before we get Inspiration Friday underway, we want to let all of our friends and fellow bloggers affected by Hurricane Sandy to know they are in our thoughts and prayers! We know many of you are still without power and may be reading this days from now. Just know we are thinking of you and praying for safety for your families and restoration for your communities!
So, have you noticed things looking a bit different?
Well, we finally bit the bullet and made the switch to WordPress!
We want to say a huge thank you again to Kristi from Addicted 2 Decorating who made this such a seamless transition for us. If you are looking to do this with your own blog we highly recommend this talented gal!
We also welcomed a NEW SPONSOR to the Fence this week:
Here you will find so many awesome Decorative Vinyl Decals.
Just take a look:
There are so many more to choose from and we would love it if you would pay Leen The Graphics Queen a visit and tell her the girls at the Fence sent ya!
We are entering into the season of Giving Thanks and today (Thursday) Vanessa is helping to kick off an amazing series called “An Attitude of Gratitude” put together by Kristin from Simply Klassic Home.
Here’s what else we’ve been up to!
This week our Regular Contributor Julie shared with you some incredible recipes in her post From Tree to Table. We just love having Julie as apart of our Picket Fence team and we so appreciate you welcoming her!
Next, we shared with you some fantastic highlights from the Thanksgiving Traditions Linky Party which is still going strong! There is still plenty of time to join in the fun and share your own Thanksgiving Inspiration with us.
And, yesterday Heather showed off a gorgeous necklace from the talented Tahra of Designs by Tahra.
As a special treat to our At The Picket Fence readers, Tahra is offering 10% off during November for buying Christmas!

Now, let’s get to some Features from last week’s party shall we?
Anna from Ask Anna did a beautiful job making over her entry and creating much needed storage space!
Jody from Rooted in Thyme gave a chandelier a fresh look just in time for Autumn and the results are wonderful!
Holly from Down to Earth Style gave her builder grade mantel a rustic makeover for only $40 and a little elbow grease!
INSPIRED CRAFTS AND CREATIONS
Autumn from It’s Always Autumn showed us how she made this J.Crew Knock-Off outfit and while it is adorable we think her darling daughter definitely makes it that much cuter!
Lindsey from Todd & Lindsey Creating shared with us this recipe for Pumpkin Pecan Cinnamon Rolls.
We’re thinking we might need a nap after having these!
Carolyn from homework made these sweet (pun intended!) Chocolate Tea Bag Tags and we’re thinking we might just skip right over the tea to get to this treat!
INSPIRED FALL DECOR
Lisa from Take 6 shared her beautiful Dining Room dressed up for Thanksgiving and including so many lovely details.
Lynn from UpCountry Olio showed off her gorgeous Fall Porch which is easy on the eyes and the budget!
As part of her wonderful series, 31 Days of Creative Caring , Susan from My Place to Yours shared how she created this “Blessing Book” for her husband and reminded him of just how much she loves and cherishes him!
