Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop, and I have been dying to try it out.

Plaid Blanket or Tartan Throw with Wool Scarves

In the fall and winter, I love, love, love having a throw blanket (or a few) laying around. They function for both cozy snuggles AND cozy decor – especially a plaid blanket or tartan throw. And I recently decided that the easiest way to make one was to upcycle some of the wool scarves that I occasionally see at the thrift store.
