Y’all, it’s been a Fall DIY Projects-filled week here at the end of our Dirt Road.
Plus, the weather has been spectacular since the storm moved out.
It’s been the perfect fall week.
I’m looking forward to sharing a look back and other behind-the-scenes happenings here at The Ponds. Plus, DIY Projects and Fall Decorating Ideas from around the web.
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
First, do you remember the old farmstead where we had our Country Garden Party?
In the first photo, you can see the backside of the old barn built in 1901. Just to the right of the barn and out of view was a giant oak tree.
Sadly, when topical storm Ian passed through last weekend, the tree and the barn were both destroyed. The tree uprooted and crushed the old barn. Only charred tree limbs remained when we arrived.
Fortunately, the other structures were undamaged.
We always enjoy having John visit us and share his fishing skills. He is quite the sportsman and loves to reel in a big catch like this one. I couldn’t resist sharing this cute photo his grandparents shared with me.
In other news, the pastures surrounding us are full of newborn calves, and these three look like they are posing for this photo opt.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?
Each week, there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.
There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL
My creative friend Wendy shared, How To Make A Fall Centerpiece with a Dollar Tree Pumpkin Wreath
How cute is this corner on Jennifer’s porch? I love those witch’s brooms.
And talking about pumpkins, I’ve wanted to make one like this since last year.
I love decorating with vintage toolboxes; this centerpiece idea is gorgeous.
Want to start a Thanksgiving Family Tradition? Check out this great idea.
My friend Stacy has written an E-Book – 15 Ways To Decorate with Fresh Greens, and it’s available here.
