About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to the Haunted Mansion

   You know, the Haunted Mansion at Disney World still scares me!  Especially when the lights go out...  A few years ago I was sitting in one of those cushy little chairs on the ride and it stopped for about a minute!  My Mom was in the next chair and I still was a bit freaked out.  We were in the attic.  Oh yeah.  Happy Halloween!  
The haunted mansion below is from Department 56 and I love it!  Jeff bought it for me as an anniversary gift years ago...

   A tiny disc inside goes around and around and you can see a witch flying on her broomstick.:D  I love the tiny leaves and the trees...

   The tiny pumpkin luminaries light up!  Is it possible to be spooky and precious at the same time?
   BOO!   This tiny little ghost keeps an eye on things...

   Jeff finished painting the dining room wall.  Yes, I said wall.  We decided to paint one wall as an accent and it really is flattering.  The color is "Cider Toddy" and really warms the room.
   Now that the wall is done I am able to hang my new favorite picture from Robin and BJ!  It feels right at home here.
   Thanks for stopping by and have a very Spooky Day!:D

I love your haunted mansion. It looks really cute and spooky too. I would have been scared too on the ride at Disney World. I bet that minute seemed like an hour!
The color of your dining room is lovely and Robins picture is beautiful. She is so talented.
I would love for you to take me to Troll Land one day.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

How cute! I love the little Holiday themed houses.
And your wall color is so warm and lovely! I love color on my walls. My house has dark chocolate brown down to a funky seagrass green. Not a white wall in sight :)

That cider toddy color is grand! My sister is in the process of painting her home. I will have to show her that color!
