Fall Themed Hurricane Glasses

When AJ and I were at Home Goods last week, I picked up two hurricane candle holders. I couldn't wait to get them home and decorate for fall.

I saw these on Pinterest, and just loved them!

My Heart's Desire: Fall Decorating with Hurricane Vases

I stopped at the grocery store the other day, I picked up green lentils, red beans, and corn kernels.

I would've taken a picture of both, but my table is kind of messy with lots of papers and computers right now. So I just cleaned off the edge and photographed the one :)

But there is a good reason that the table is messy - the first real day of school is today! I'm a little nervous. I really have no reason to be, its a half day, and I have a fun activity planned for the kids as a getting to know you after we do the basic here's the syllabus, hand out the textbook kind of stuff.

But I'm still nervous!

On the bright side though, I get out early! I like having a half day on the first day, because its like ripping off a band aid, you just do it quick, get over it, and its done! Then I can be back in the swing of things without being anxious before classes start anymore!

I love your Hurricane candle holders, they turned out lovely.
I am trying to hold off on my fall decorating as I don't want summer to end yet...yes I'm in denial, lol.
I did purchase some faux gourds for my large glass bowl for the dinning table.
