Dirt Road Adventures – All The Fall Feels

Happy Sunday Friends! Wow it was such a short week but I’m getting all the fall feels. I didn’t get half of my to do list accomplished but a little break over the Labor Day Weekend was worth it.

I couldn’t resist getting the FALL ON by sharing some fall centerpiece inspiration and front porch ideas for any style home this past week.

In addition, did you see the plaster leaf plate charger tutorial or the scarp fabric pumpkin pillow cover?

What about the tour of our Industrial Style Loft?

I also found so much inspiration from around the web. You’ll love seeing this yacht tour, this beautiful entryway, the IKEA bookcase hack, delicious recipes and fall craft ideas.

Here’s a quick look back at the Hot Dog Supper hosted by our dear friends at Kure Beach to celebrate the Labor Day Weekend.

Great Friends and Great Memories

Let me know how sturdy and if you like the new tripod! The phone holder on mine broke (honestly I never liked it anyway) and I need to get a new one soon.

Jennifer, I will let you know. I had replaced the phone holder on my original one so this was the second break.
