Wreaths, pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, lots of “treating” and thankfully no “tricking”!
Blogland is overflowing with fantastic creativity and talent and we are so thrilled that you come here each week to share it with us! There is a bevy of activity going on around the Picket Fence these days too so we are just going to jump right in and get this party started.
This week we have not one but two Giveaways going on!
As a thank you to our Fabulous Facebook Friends (say that 3 times fast!), we offered a chance to win at $30 Pottery Barn Gift Card! Today (Thursday) is the last day to enter before we announce the winner on our Facebook Page Friday Morning. So, get while the getting’s good!
In addition, our Giveaway from
is still going strong! One lucky reader will win a $35 Credit to Ann’s gorgeous Etsy Shop.
The winner will be announced at next week’s Inspiration Friday so there is still plenty of time for you to enter for a chance to win this awesome prize!
Ann is just one of our incredible sponsors here At the Picket Fence and we would like to take a moment to introduce you to our newest Sponsors as well.
We are thrilled to have Kelli from More Bang For Your Buck and The Encouragement Project
joining us! We love having the opportunity to promote other Blogs and this serves as a reminder that we always welcome partnering with folks in this way.
We would also like you to meet Vicki from
This Etsy Shop is filled with absolutely gorgeous handmade products and we
encourage you to pay them a visit!
And we are so excited to be working with Dawn from
Her incredible shop is filled with “affordable, original art, greeting cards and prints” and we know you will be just as stunned by the beauty of her work as we are!
We so appreciate the opportunity to partner with these talented folks and we hope you will take a moment and stop by and check them out for yourself!
Now, let’s get to those FEATURES, shall we?
We absolutely adored this wreath from Brown Paper Packages and loved the darling little fabric rosettes she made. “These are a few of our favorite things” after all.
They add such beautiful color and texture and the entire wreath is just gorgeous!
Next door to her at the party we spotted this beautiful bunting from Rhett Didn’t Give a Damn.
We just think it is so soft and feminine and there was a really cute reason behind the phrase she selected. Her photography is absolutely incredible as well and she does some fantastic tutorials!
How adorable is this pumpkin coach from Fairfield House? The details on this are incredible right down to the key “stem”. We are amazed at the creativity and skill that went into creating this darling work of art!
Now for some “treating”!
We never thought we would say that Black Widow Spiders are cute, but these ones from
The Seven Year Cottage are definitely the only kind of spiders we want around our house!
These are made using Oreo Cakesters and Hollie gives great instructions on how to put them together.
And here is another treat that is just too cute to be scary! We think these Mummy Pretzels from the Midwestern Sewing Girl are so adorable and would be the perfect addition to your Halloween/Fall Party!
Finally, you know that one of the things we love about our Inspiration Friday Party is that it provides an opportunity for you to share not only about your home, but also about your heart.
Town and Country Mom shared with us her love story. But, this isn’t your usual love story.
It involved loss, grief, the testing of faith and a heart opened to welcome a new love.
We encourage you to head over to read it, knowing that you will be just as moved and touched as we were!
