My Haunted House: Halloween Decor

I decided to go a bit further than usual with the outdoor Halloween decor this year. More than just the normal punkins (as Walker calls them). Even Lucy got into the "spirit"! Doesn't she look possessed?

Mike thinks I'm possessed. I assured him that since it is October, it is OK for me to decorate for Halloween already. I tried not to go too overboard.

The corner pumpkin lots opened this weekend, so Walker and I spent about 30 minutes picking out the perfect pumpkins for the front steps. Of course, he wants to carve them all. I love the contrast of the white and orange pumpkins and really wanted more, but I stopped myself at 10.

My favorite part of the front is the happy orange light-up pumpkin I nestled into my honeysuckle vine, along with some orange flicker lights I picked up at Michael's this weekend. 

I'll call this sophisticated spooky.


  1. Love it! I've been aching to get to a pumpkin patch to pick out a few, but haven't had the time yet!

  2. I love the white pumpkins!!

  3. I LOVE all your punkin stuff!!!! You did an awesome job. :)

  4. Oooh! I love it. Your dog does look somewhat like he belongs in Salem's Lot. lol

  5. Ah, man! It's already the 9th of October. I guess I'd better bookmark this blog and go get my Halloween decorations up...I suck!

  6. Your decor totally gets me in the Halloween mood... it's hard to feel "halloweeny" when its 85 degrees out! Love the white pumpkins too!

  7. LOVE "sophisticated spooky" :) Halloween gives us all permission to go overboard... pumpkins are cheap here in NC, anyway ;)

  8. My husband & I usually put on quite the Halloween decorating show and I'm missing that this year...
    This was a real treat to see! Thanks for brightening my day with your Halloween spirit :)

  9. Looks good! Subtle and classic - not crazy at all.

    If your husband thinks this is overboard, he would want to check me into a mental institution.

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!
