Fall Door Ideas....and a rhyme

I am sure most of you have heard the rhyme, particularly  if you trick or treated in a time where an xray was not needed to scan your candy before you ate it.
Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat.

Trick or Treat....Where does time go?

How did I go from lil pumpkins.........

To a super hero, skeleton and a bumble bee!

Still waiting for this years costumes to arrive in the mail. After much conversation and debate and a bit of mom  input on some of the ideas particular with my 8 year old, we will have  007, a zombie and a cat.

Easy Lampshade about 5 mins

I am finishing up a few loose ends in my office and recently just made a quick and easy change to a plain jane lampshade.  With just a few simple steps and about 5 mins, it's easy create a custom looking lamp shade to coordinate with your space... not to mention the money that you save from creating your own.

Lily's 'Pink' Bedroom Reveal

I think this makeover that I did in Lily's bedroom, was probably the best project that I have worked on this far. Sure there was the kitchen makeover here that I absolutely love, but there is just something about this room that makes me and my Lily smile....a lot.

Weekend Wow's

Happiest of Fridays to you. Hope you had a great week. We are in full blown fall season. Fairs, festivals and fall like temps are around us.  I am a tad bit excited about hitting the Country Living Fair today. I have been waiting for this event every since the moment I drove home from last years event. Should be a great time.

Speaking of excitement.....

Super cool shower curtain

Stairway to Brightness

I think it is safe to say that my school aged children will not be reverting back to crawling ...... at least I hope not. Nor, am I expecting anymore young crawlers (meaning no more babies for me) around the house anytime in the near future, so..... it's time to take the baby gate down. Who know's why we left it up this long.

We custom made the gate 8 years ago when I had my first child because I could not find a gate wide or sturdy enough to fit across the top of the stairs.
