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.

  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.

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!


Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
