Macrame Hangers

Happy Fall!
We have raced right through summer, and I didn't even post!
I seem to do that...take summers off.
I don't know why I do it, I always love
going back through my posts and checking out
the changes that we've made through our house. 
Inside and Outside.
Speaking of which, yesterday marked our 6 year anniversary!
Oh my goodness!
I think I need to do another before and after post of 
all the changes we have made to our home...

This time it's been so long, that when I opened my blog today
I realized that my blog roll is gone!!!! and that top bar of links
is missing too...not sure what that is about, but I will be 
linking my favorites back up takes me a little time.

Anyways, today is a quick tour or the
ever so slight, fall decorations I put through the main
living space. 
 Next post I will show our Witch's Cottage.


When I was in Winners I found these fun napkins, I was hoping for 
a table cloth or throw pillow covers, but these will do!
I layer them over a larger tablecloth to add to their impact,
and who doesn't like some good layering!
The navy and brass are perfect with the dark wood table.

In the kitchen we were finding that we were closing the blinds to give our
neighbors below us a little more privacy.  In turn, shutting
the sunshine out too!  
So, I've come up with a solution for the time being...

a low placed cafe curtain.
It seems like we are still looking down on them in
this picture, but I was standing on the island trying to get a
nice picture of the window, I don't usually do that ;)
But, I never seem to close the blinds
anymore.  Lots of light can shine in now.
There was a succulent that sat in the sun on
that window sill, but I couldn't see it anymore so
  I 'You Tubed' a how to video
and made a few little mini macrame hangers.
So easy and slightly addictive :)

I hung a little hook with an anchor in the ceiling so it wouldn't crash down
on anyone, I always hate messing with ceiling gyproc,
it's not as easy to repair.

This succulent wasn't getting enough light so
it was stretched right out, reaching.
I cut off the top half and shoved it into
the soil...we'll see if it survives.

And I made another hanger for the dining room.

Macrame hangers can be made from jute,
yarn, or strips of fabric of any kind.
Keep in mind the strips need to be about 1.5 times the length
of your finished product.  My windows are longer and I
wanted them to hang a little lower
 so I used a LOT of jute.

Happy Crafting!
