Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

I hit a couple of garage sales and thrift shops over the weekend and I have a few fun finds to share for this week's TTT!

If you are new here TTT (Treasure Trove Tuesday) is where I share my latest thrifting finds. Most make their way into my Etsy shop, Little Boho Cottage, but some I just can't part with!😊

What I found for my Etsy shop!

The Best DIY Boho Pumpkin Roundup!

I think fall and Halloween decor are a couple of the hardest to put a boho spin on, don't you? After all, I haven't seen much in the way of fall boho decorations for sale in stores!

Since pumpkins are easy to find (the grocery store has them, there are pumpkin patches, and you can often find stands on the side of the road selling them) I set on a mission to scour the internet and find the best boho pumpkin tutorials.

I bet you'll be as inspired as I am to get a big ol' pumpkin and get your DIY on!

5 Things To Make With ONE Flannel Shirt!

I can't believe it's been a month already since our last Thrifty Chicks project! If you remember, last month's project challenge was chalkboards and I shared how to make Chalkboards in Any Color!

This month's challenge is upcycling flannel clothing and I'm just as excited as you are because I have no idea what the other ladies are making until reveal day!

I started working with my flannel shirt I picked up at Goodwill and then couldn't stop so I actually have FIVE projects to share... 5 Things to Make with ONE Flannel Shirt! 😀

You can make so many different things with ONE flannel shirt!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

I have a few things to share for today's TTT... like last week, it's not a lot but still, some fun finds I think!

What I found while out thrifting!

DIY Boho Fall Wreath

If you're as addicted to Pinterest as I am then you've most likely seen all of the cute wreaths made with embroidery hoops!

I love the simplicity of using the embroidery hoop and then embellishing it just a little bit... and I'm all about repurposing!!

So, I decided to try making my own repurposed embroidery hoop wreath but with a boho spin!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

It's been a few weeks since I shared for TTT and while I don't have a lot, I do have a few things to share!

I have been trying to stay away from the thrift stores while I catch up with listing things in my Etsy shop. I've listed quite a few new things lately so if you haven't stopped by the shop in a while check it out! Click here to go to the shop: Little Boho Cottage

Using Nature to Decorate Your Home

How are you doing with your fall decorating? Do you go all out? Do you completely skip fall and go straight into Halloween? Maybe you don't do seasonal decorating at all and concentrate solely on the holidays.

And if you're like me then maybe you just aren't ready to drag out all the decorations from storage yet. It seems a little early for full-on Halloween decor (although it is only about a month away!) but I do like to add a few seasonal touches to gradually work my way into it!

Today I am sharing an easy way to get some pretty seasonal vibes going in your home by decorating with Mother Nature!

Fall Porch Tour

Well, I can't believe it... I'm actually ahead of the game and have my front porch decorated for fall... already!! Since I'm Last Minute Lisa that's amazeballs!! In the blogging world, I'm probably behind though!

By the time you see this post I'll be at my first ever blogging conference! I'm super excited and also super nervous. I am actually rather shy and don't like being in big crowds of people where I don't know anyone!

I'm attending Activate: EBA Live. I've been taking the Elite Blogging Academy course for some time now and working on my blog. My dream is to one day be able to work from home doing what I love... blogging, crafting, decorating, etc. So, I'm hoping I come back with a set-in-stone action plan to move toward that dream, wish me luck!

Now, on to the porch 😊

7 Drool Worthy Bohemian Style Patios You'll Love!

Well, before you know it patio weather will be over. we are approaching that time of year where we start to transition into fall. The weather will start turning and we'll start wearing sweaters and boots and eventually, we'll button up our patios for winter until next spring.

Right now we still have some time though to enjoy the outdoor time! 😁

I thought I'd share how my patio looks now. I've done a little redecorating since I finished my bohemian style patio last year. You can see that post here: Boho Patio Reveal. And after I share my patio I have a special guest post by Melinda Brown who writes for Vertigo Interiors with her ideas for what makes a great bohemian style patio!

Bohemian style covers so many different looks, check out these 7 patios to fall in love with!

Upcycled Tray Stand - Thrift Shop Flip

My mom and I packed up everything that was left of my booths at the antique mall last Thursday. Despite having 25%, 50%, and then 75% off sales all month long there was still quite a bit to pack up and bring home. Two truck loads!

Needless to say, my semi-hoarded garage before now looks like a full-on episode from the TV show hoarders complete with a skinny little pathway through it all! 😧 We are planning to have an end-of-season garage sale at the end of the month though and I am determined to get that garage cleaned up and organized once and for all!

While I was trying to make room in the garage for the stuff from the booths I found a Rubbermaid bin full of project pieces that I had forgotten about out there so this project is an upcycle project from two pieces I found in that bin.

Can you believe it is the end of August already?! I can't, I'm not quite ready for fall yet, I feel like summer just got started!

But I guess there isn't anything I can do about time speeding by like it is lately except try and make the most of it right?

So, let's say goodbye to August with a trash to treasure project ok?! 😊
