Happy Derby week y’；all!!! I hope that you have enjoyed the Kentucky Derby Party Ideas and Printable’；s that I posted this year. ？I have one more quick idea Kentucky Derby decorations to share with you today. Tomorrow is the Kentucky Oaks (which I’；m going to !!!) and Saturday is the Kentucky Derby! ？If you ever want to come to the Derby but can’；t find tickets， try going to the Oaks or Thurby instead…； (Thurby is relatively new and is the Thursday before the Derby， lots of fun races， and you can still wear a hatcustomized gifts for mom， but not as hard to find tickets)
When I designed the Kentucky Derby Subway Art for the Run for the Roses party I knew that in addition to the black and white version that I wanted to do a full-color one. ？ The art is sized 8”； x 10”； so it will print on your home printer then you can cut it down to fit in a standard 8”； x 10”； picture frame.pillow sham pattern
I added mine to a shadow box frame then decorated around it a bit. ？Yesterday I snuck off to my friend Gretchen’；s house to make these fun Derby Horses. They are SO simple， just cheap plastic horses with a little rosette glued on. They were so fun to make， I think I need a whole little “；herd”； of them now!
Here are the horses Gretchen made， you can hop on over to Nesting in the Bluegrass to get a tutorial!
While I was there， Gretchen helped me make a fascinator for Oaks! I can’；t wait to show you my dress， I made it!! I actually started it last September for Project Sewn， but never finished it. Derby seemed like the perfect reason to get it done…； and guess what， it’；s polka dotted! Shocker huh!!？!

With autumn here, I am enjoying the subtle changes that come with the season. Seeing the bounty of beauty with the leaves changing, pumpkins, squashes, persimmons and pomegranates makes me so happy. I also can appreciate the gradual slowing down that comes with the sun setting earlier. A feeling of wanting to get cozy with loved ones at home. With this grounding energy though, there also comes the series of events and activities that come with the Holidays. With the busy time ahead, we can do certain things to insure we feel calm and balanced. I have put together some tips that I try and follow over the holidays, so I hope they may help you too stay peaceful and calm during this time.
