October in Review

What a month! I had some really amazing blog opportunities (yeah!) coupled with some really ridiculous and long lasting sickness for us all (boo!).  It's left me both exhausted and excited for what's to come in November.
I've already started changing up certain areas of my home for late fall (think lots of browns, whites, creams and gold.)
If you missed anything here at Number Fifty-Three in October here's a recap of what went down.
I crafted. Do you love simple and inexpensive crafts? Me too!

Easy, DIY, Dream Catcher

Glam, Skull Place Cards

Golden Gourds & Canning Jars
I painted furniture, including some of my favs ever!


Rustic, Glam Dresser
I was featured on Apartment Therapy. I know. I nearly fainted when I found out. Then I got excited (Yeah! They think my project was good...they really do!) and then panicked (what if the comments are all hurtful and rude).  No worries though it was awesome and I am still shocked that my project was picked.

 Planked Wall


Then, I took part in the most fab series for fall decorating. Let me tell you, being last was not a ton of fun. I seriously stressed and tweaked my house until the final moments. Did you see how amazing these home tours were! Seriously some talented and inspiring ladies out there!

My Modern & Fresh Home Tour!

Thank you all so much for your page views and comments! Keep them coming!
