Home Matters Link Party #445

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome to the Home Matters Link Party #445! This week’s features bring you fall decor and craft inspiration. You’ll find marbled painted pumpkins and oyster pumpkin DIY crafts along with beautiful home and fall decor. Enjoy!

The Home Matters Party is a great place to come, share your blog posts, and make new friends. 100+ bloggers from around the world come each week to share their home decor, crafts, and recipes. Thank you to all our participants!

If you can’t find last week’s party #444, it disappeared when I switched to a new WordPress theme, however, I’m re-featuring those bloggers with their images and links at the end of this post.
