Glitter Leaf Hurricanes

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Happy Veterans Day all!   A big salute to the veterans and troops today!  Did your town have a parade?  Ours did, and so many came out to pay tribute!

I’m working my way through my list of holiday crafts, and I finished up one half of a project today!   We’re not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but I am helping with the table setting, so here’s one of my contributions: glitter leaf hurricanes!  Or should I say hurricane singular . . .  I still have to finish the second one, but no worries.  This is such a simple and quick project anyone can finish in under an hour.

October Favorites

Happy Halloween weekend y’all!  Do you have a relaxing weekend planned or is your calendar packed with costume related events?  We happen to fall in the latter category, but the rain is putting a damper on all the festivities planned.  No worries, we’ll just trick-or-treat with our umbrellas and rain boots!

Meanwhile, here’s a few fun and inspirational links that inspired me this month, enjoy!

Getting Booed

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Hi all, how’s your fall?  Are you enjoying the cooler weather, the falling leaves, and the colors of the season? 

How gorgeous is this display at my local grocer around the corner?  A perfect harvest scene!  It just doesn’t get much better than this . . .

Except when you arrive home to find a little treat bag on your door, and you have no idea who left it there.  This is the second time this week a treat bag has arrived anonymously on our front porch.

We’ve been BOOed!

I had never heard of this Boo Game until this year, my family and I are smitten with it!   These anonymous ‘Boo’ treat bags are akin to the ‘Secret Santa’ and they are a fun way to spoil your friends and good neighbors.  Perhaps you’ve been BOOed too?
