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!

is how I feel right now! I just finished making this "Trash" mix...

and I am hoping to make some pumpkins like this... (from Better Homes and Gardens)

and this... (BH & G)
and Katie is going to wear this... (Made by Kiki's Things on etsy)

and craft with these feathers and sequins (darling bucket made for me by my friend, Yvonne!) at our Halloween party this weekend!
How I WISH that you could all be there!!!!!

You know, in a way, you will be...

As I started decorating I realized that I have so many lovely things that have come from my blogging friends and it was like you WERE there with me already.:) This amazing button pumpkin was made for me by my sweet Sister, Robin! Is it me or what?? I LOVE it! Thanks Robin!

This darling little pumpkin container is from my Fall Swap partner, Chandra! LOVE it, Chandra!
Chandra also made me this sweet ornament and it is hanging from my chandelier...

Look at what is on the dining room table! Oh my... I have some work to do...

This whimsical sign is from my dear friend, Val! Thanks Val! It is so fun!

This gorgeous wreath is from my sweet friend, Joy! Isn't is amazing??! LOVE it!

This welcoming sign is from my precious friend, Heather! Heather I hope that you all feel better soon! I WISH you would hop on a plane and surprise me!;)

The fun little "BOO" banner is from my dear friend, Jill! It is so sparkly and festive and makes me smile!:)

This glowing pumpkin is another treasure from my bloggy sister, Robin! I just love twinkle lights and pumpkins- two of my favorite things! (Make that 3 of my favorite things- Robin, twinkle lights and pumpkins!)

This swag and "ball of YUM" were made by the lovely friend, Joy! She has such a way with fabrics and colors!

So, you see, you WILL be there at my party. Miles cannot keep us apart. Your love and friendship are with me wherever I go. Things I hear and see remind me of one or more of you day in and day out. I love you all...

Lori - Where are the apothecary jars??? Will have to check out some older posts to see if you put them out this year.

I wanted to let you know that Charlie has arrived (5 weeks early)and is doing great now. I can't even beging to tell you how much your sweet words and prayers meant to me last year. Thanks for the encouragement! You are so precious!


P.S. Jill lives nearby and although I've never met her in person, we have several friends in common and she is SOOOO talented and creative...and I hear she is just the sweetest thing around! But I'm guessing you already knew that, huh? I LOVE the scarf and bag tags she made.
