Spooktacular Weekend!

We finished decorating the house this weekend, finally visited the pumpkin patch and carved a cool jack-o-lantern mansion inspired by one in Martha Stewart's Halloween magazine.

I did a similar thing with my mantel last year, but with a couple of little touches from the dollar store (glitter skull and spooky menu) and things around the house (small chest, old family pics, old golf trophy, silver teapot), my pumpkin people from HomeGoods (they have the best and cheapest Halloween decor) and some sticks from the yard - plus my little Happy Halloween hanging banner from last year - and we have our spooky setting, ready for trick-or-treaters!



  1. Very cool. I have terrible pumpkin carving skillz...and lack of patience. But I love what you get in the end! I settle for uncarved pumpkins on our front step and lanters with candles for the *glow*. Happy Halloween!

  2. awesome decorations! I love the Mansion!

  3. Those pumpkins rock. Now that you're finished with your house, wanna come decorate mine?

  4. Very **Cute*** I love it!!

    I wish we got trick-or-treaters!!
    We live in an area that it wouldn't do the kids justice coming out here!

    Have a spooky Halloween!

  5. So cute! I'm loving those pumpkins!

  6. Your pumpkins are amazing. I love them! What a wonderful weekend you had : )

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
