Falling for Fall-Mum's the word...

I LOVE this time of year.  My High School Sweetheart Husband loathes it. Fall means Winter is next, and he hates the cold weather...I, however, anticipate it, relish in it and absorb as much of it as I can! 
This past weekend I was with my Mom and got the "itch" to do some embellishing with her mum that she purchased as a gift.  

I love mums.

Aren't they beautiful?

Put them with some pumpkins, falling leaves and the smell of an outdoor fire, and I'm in heaven. I love sweatshirt weather, Indian Summer days, cool evenings, AHHH....I digress.

We made our way to the local green house, (my Mom loves Canoyer's in Omaha) and picked out, 
as she would say,"a good one." 

Then we stopped at Hobby Lobby and found some cute fall print cotton material, (I used 1 yard depending on the size of your pot/basket), some burlap ribbon, and a fall leaf with some Indian corn embellishment.  
I wrapped the basket the Mum was in and tied it with the burlap ribbon. I tucked the fabric into the basket at the top to "wrap" it.  My Mom had the Pumpkin plant stake from a previous shopping trip.  This is how it came together!
                                                             
Kind of cute until we get to see the blooms! Now to make one for......ME! 
Do I smell S'mores? Fall is in the air.....
Time to Fly!
