I had the cutest little spring time weathervane. It was a running rabbit and I just loved it. You’re noticing the past tense? Had. Was. Loved. That poor guy had and accident and got broken. Since I am a pack-rat/potential project supply hoarder, I held on to the base of the weathervane… just in […]
I am a pretty creative person, and I am of the opinion that everyone has at least a little bit of creativity in them, but it often surprises me how many people will argue vehemently that they are NOT creative. Nope. Can’t do it. My mind just doesn’t work that way, etc… I think sometimes […]
One of the things that I think is so great about Halloween is that you can pretty much take any object, paint it black, and you have Insta-Decor. You know I super-duper love sticks and branches, especially around Halloween. I love them on my mantel, and this pumpkin and stick combo from a few years […]
You know I love me some pumpkins, right? There are plenty on my blog (you can see them here) but I came across a couple that I wanted to share. Both started out as drab little Dollar Store Pumpkins. Look at these beautiful gilded pumpkins from Karen at Redoux! These guys went from orange to […]
Are you having a fabulous Labor Day holiday? It sort of signals the end of summer and the coming of fall, doesn’t it? That includes time for Fall Food and Treats.

Yesterday I shared photos from our big Halloween party. Today I wanted to show you how to make this easy photo garland. I thought it would be fun to create a garland using photos from our previous Halloween parties, but you could easily do this for any holiday or special occasion. (Or you could even […]
Saturday night we had our third annual Halloween Party. Medusa & Perseus (except it wasn’t Perseus’ night…Medusa turned him to stone.) We invite friends to come in costume and ask them to BYOB and to bring a dish of some kind to share on the buffet table. I used to try to do everything myself […]
I needed something tall to flank each side of our front door. Since I’m a symmetry girl, I wanted them to match. This is what I came up with: these faux hammered metal planters. And just for funzies, (since it’s Halloween and all) I thought a spiderweb topiary or two would be kind of cool.
