Currently October 2017
Linking up again this month with Anne from Anne In Residence for the Currently October 2017 blog link up. Come join the fun and let us know what you are currently up to in October!
Styling – hmmm this is a hard one. The word styling and me don’t exactly go hand in hand. I am probably one of the least picky people around. The furniture in my house was all purchased by my husband before we were married. I’ve had the same hair style for quite a few years and I don’t really like to go shopping for new clothes. If you count putting up Halloween decorations then that’s what I’m “styling” in my home!
Saving glass bottles and jars (although not too many yet). My daughter thinks she might use them for decorations for the tables at her wedding reception. Possibly spraying them rose gold and adding glitter? No definite plan has been made but it’s a possibility. Maybe something like this but with random bottles.
Searching for a new free online picture editing tool. Since PicMonkey wants to charge to use their service I’m going to quit using them. I’m kind of a cheapskate! I found one I think I like called iPiccy. Has anyone else used this? It seems user friendly and everything is free, at least right now.
Picking up lots and lots of apples at the grocery store! Honeycrisp are my favorite and this is the only time they are in season. So as soon as they go on sale I start stocking up. They are a little on the expensive side but oh so worth it!
Making all things pumpkin spice – cupcakes, cookies, . . . I’m also about to make an ornament. I joined the ornament exchange at My Pinterventures. She is currently pairing participants up and the reveal and link up is November 16.
Thanks for the heads up about iPiccy. I’ve never tried it, but will do so soon!
And those jars are lovely! I have a soft spot in my heart for canning jars since I actually use them to can!

I have never done any canning but when I retire maybe I can enlarge my garden enough to have extras for canning! Thanks for stopping by!
Love the rose gold bottle arrangements! I have a collection of bottle in my kitchen, especially like the ones with raised lettering. It’s nice to always have a “vase” the right size for fresh cut flowers from the yard.
I saw the idea on Pinterest and since I’m helping her with decorations I liked the idea of how inexpensive it would be!
I love those painted jars! What a fun project and lovely wedding idea.

I didn’t know Picmonkley was going to charge!
I love the rose gold vases with flowers. I have two daughters getting married next year so I am always on the lookout for inexpensive things that are pretty or that my girls would like.
I have been overwhelmed with work so I haven’t done any fall decorating. I need to rethink, I do like the change of seasons.
apples and pumpkin are in great demand at our house right now as well

Oh I’m having a very exciting October (not!) doing things like putting up some shelving in the garage and getting rid of some old junk in it!

It may not be very exciting but it does feel good to get things cleaned out! I did some garage cleaning while I was home from work during Hurricane Harvey!
I love the bottles. However, I am a total mason jar freak so it totally speaks to me.
I know – you can do so many things with mason jars!
Oh gosh, honeycrisp apples are my absolute favorite. Totally worth the price!

Definitely – just wish they were around longer than they are!
Thank you for sharing this little glimpse into your October, Roseann. I love those pretty rose gold vases – what a great idea to use for your daughter’s wedding. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link party.
