I love Halloween and it’s always fun to create spooky little vignettes around the house during the month of October.

Spring planter makeover (& how it looked like Shrek until I added a chicken.)
I know that 2/3 of the country is being ravaged by winter weather, but here in So Cal it has been really mild. So much so that it was time to do a spring planter to put by our front door. A few months back I spotted this guy, just sitting on the curb. He […]
