Autumn Fall Tiered Tray Decor

Summer has flown by way too fast! When I was younger, I would spend all day outside in the Summer and it felt like summer break was much longer. Now that Autumn is in the air and the leaves are starting to fall, I'm getting excited about the cooler weather.

Leaves Are Falling

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I made a trip to Dollar Tree and I picked up a couple of kitchen towels, but I also snagged these Autumn and Halloween signs. I noticed they had pumpkins, fall flowers and scarecrows as well.

Now, I'm totally regretting not picking up a few of the fall decor pieces they had because I've seen so many super cute tiered tray ideas. My ideal tiered tray would have mini signs, fall leaves, miniature Cross Stitch pieces, scarecrows and pumpkins. There are so many decor options for tiered trays and they can be redecorated for every season.

Cross Stitch WIP and Adorable Kitchen Towels

Last week my hubby and I took a trip to the Dollar Tree across town and picked up a few things. We have one a couple minutes away from us, but the one we went to last week is much larger. We picked up a few items such as medicine, cat food, cleaning supplies, a couple of fall plaques and these super cute kitchen towels.

Adorable Kitchen Towels

I visited their website to see if they had these particular towels available, but they didn't have the refrigerator towel available. They do have the blue/green towels that I purchased along with other super cute towels. Some of the available designs are Halloween, Fall, Kitchen Sentiments, Coffee and more. There is a required purchase of one case, but some of them have a set with different prints or you can give them away as gifts.

We also found this cute coffee cup plaque for my mom to use on her desk at work.

KraftsbyKatelyn has a tutorial on her super cute farmhouse fall sign that she made using the coffee cup. She is so talented!

Last but not least is my Cross Stitch WIP. I'm working on one of the kits I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby called Mini Fruity Popsicles by Artiste. I thought I would be able to stitch this one up quickly because of the size, but it's quite detailed. I think it's turning out to be super cute!

I hope you're having a great week!

Completed Cross Stitch: Blooming Teapot

Blooming Teapot Counted Cross Stitch
My husband and I went to Hobby Lobby about a month ago and I found a super cute Cross Stitch kit in the clearance section called Blooming Teapot by Artiste. My husband also found a couple of Star Wars pictures that were marked down for around $8 each. They have a ton of marked down decor. We also picked up a couple of wall hangings for my dad for Father's Day. Our local Hobby Lobby has items marked down all throughout the store, so if you go, check out all the aisles so you don't miss anything.

If a design has flowers and/or pastels, I'm instantly drawn to it. I adore the colors in this piece. I really enjoyed stitching it, but there was a lot of color changing and I'm not quite happy with all of my french knots. My french knots turn out much better when I use to strands of thread, but this piece called for one. I may go back and redo do these at some point.

I was a bit concerned about runing out of thread because it looked like I was getting close to running out on a couple of colors, but I had plenty to work with. The only thing that was confusing to me with the thread in this kit was one color. It did not look like the same color that was used in the original image for the kit. However, it blended nicely once this project was complete. When looking at the picture on the left below, it's the darker pink on the small flower in between the two larger ones. It almost looks like a grey/pink.

Here are a couple of pictures before I added the backstitching.

And a few close up pictures.

The backstitching really made a difference!

I couldn't find this kit available online for you, but I recommend searching Amazon, Leisure Arts, Inc. and Annie's. I will update this post if I do find out where you are able to purchase it online.

Update: I found the kit on Etsy if you are interested.

Happy Stitching!
