Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #391

Messy Messy Fail - My pregnancy brain has officially gone to the birds - I am living day-by-day at this point.  I cannot even remember which day of the week it is, and that is no joke.  
Tidy Victory - My turn to host again for the month of September which is great because as I will reiterate in the party, I love the month of September!  

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #391

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #391 - my name is Katie from Love My Messy Messy Mess and I am SO EXCITED to be your hostess for the month of September!  As a native of the Western New York region, September is one of my favorite months - the leaves start to change, the weather is warm and sunny but not too hot and it's generally just a great month as we transition out of summer.

Happy Labor Day to all our US followers - we all hope you have a relaxing weekend with your families and friends!

For more updates on my weekend shenanigans, check me out here on Instagram or Facebook.

This Week's Features

Now let me start with I NEVER decorate for fall before Labor Day - I like to hang on to summer as long as possible!  But after that first weekend in September, the time has come to break out the pumpkins.  I am always looking online for inspiration, and I think this great post on Neutral Fall Mantel Decor from The House on Silverado is a great resource!

Now that the whole bird gathering ban is over (did you hear about that?) I've been putting out bird food to attract all my little friends again.  What a neat idea to create this Birdhouse Gourd Lantern to add a special touch to your outdoor space!

You know I love a festive wreath AND little red trucks, so I had to.  At an affordable price, follow this blog post to make your own DIY Dollar Tree Pumpkin Truck Fall Wreath from Deb's Buzz.

I am down with anything pumpkin flavored be it coffee, doughnuts, or ice cream!  Try this recipe for Pumpkin Ice Cream from Cincy Shopper - the best part is you don't even need an ice cream maker for this recipe!


Candle nut typing this right now, and I have ALWAYS wanted to try making my own.  This tutorial for a Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candle looks like something can handle.  I especially love that it is soy, which means it will burn very clean.
