hello again!

Hey friends!

Here I am again, after about a year of radio silence. Summer of ’17 was packed with commitments and simultaneous intentions to post on this space. Days became weeks, weeks became months, still Filigree Lane remained quiet. My fall and winter looked different than I expected.

Happy Thanksgiving week friends!

I recently saw a picture of an adorable pumpkin pie banner on Pinterest and I decided to recreate it myself! I’m sharing a tutorial with you all today. I really love how it looks on our mantel!
