Latest Obsession: Edison Light Bulbs

Okay, I’ve gone totally nuts over these Edison light bulbs. Just the bare beauty of them, with their warm nostalgic glow is breathtaking...
They look fabulous in groupings, don't you think?
or just a single, simple hanging bulb...
Now, the question is where I can put one in my house?

~Crazy about Cranberries~

I've used cranberries in my holiday decorating in the past, but I needed some fresh new ideas for some "cranberry bling" for this year...And boy I think I found them!

You can add cranberries to just about anything!

Attach them to foam balls found at your craft supply store for holiday topiaries!

This is a simple and gorgeous way to use cranberry garland!

Using them as vase filler with greenery is a great way to add some Christmas color!

Gotta go... I’m off to the grocery store!

~Bats, Rats and Spiders, Oh My...~

As promised...Here’s the house decorated for Ella’s 7th Birthday! We wanted the decorations to have a more old-fashion feel than scary; however I think Ella’s would have loved scarier! Maybe when she’s a little older...

These are the pictures that I made and sold on Etsy. Every picture that I made Ella would ask

" Is that for my party?"

So I made one extra on every item that I sold on Etsy...

All in all it was a great party and I had ton's of fun making and shopping for all the decorations.
Have a very Happy Halloween!

~Cemetery of fear...Or Not!~

It just 2 days before Ella’s Birthday party and we are beginning to put up the little cemetery with the fog machine and ghost. As you can see Ella doesn’t look overly scared as she dances around posing for pictures...In fact she was a little annoyed that we didn’t make it scarier.
Doing a little jig. What a ham... This one's my favorite. It reminds me of the Michael Jackson "Thriller" video. I love that video. She's so cute!

~It's All About The Scarecrows~

We live in a very quaint little town that is very family oriented. The town or school district is always hosting some kind of event/contest during the holiday’s...

Here are a few of the entries... Enjoy the creativity!
