Pumpkins And Bats And Mice, Oh My!


Halloween decorating was a lot of fun this year.


Our fireplace mantle in the living room. h1Pumpkin topiareies that I made, probably my favorite addition this year.h2I scored both led candles and the witch pumpkin on clearance at Kohls last year a few months after Halloween so they were nearly 70% off!w3I repurpose our usual candles for every holiday by just adding ribbon. Cheap, quick and always adds a lot of holiday feel to every room. h3w1Bath & Body Works Trick Or Treat candles worked in perfectly.w2I added a little Halloween spirit to the kitchen as well.w4

Lovey’s favorite decoration, Mr. Pumpkin. He talks when you press his nose. He’s a pretty fun fella’ and I can see why he’s Lovey’s favorite.h4Our entry table all dressed up for Halloween.

I love being greeted by a table of cheer, whatever season it may be, when I first walk through our door. It’s always the first area that I decorate and the last one that I put away until the next year. h5w6I brought the wreath in that I made last year from hanging on the front door and found it a new home on the entry mirror.w5I was so pleased with our stairs. Cute and just a touch of creepy with the mice cut outs. Decorating our stairs this way will definitely be a Halloween tradition from now on. h6



Sweet Ending

All good things must come to an end including sweet summertime which came and went entirely too fast this year, more so than usual if you ask me. Lovey and I ended it sweetly though with cool, sprinkle covered goodness. Until next year, summertime!photohynhyjyjy7a1a

Oaks Amusement Park

 Mister Mister’s company’s picnic was held at a local amusement park this year. 10592994_10201504152326162_800304581912876554_nThere was a BBQ, prize raffles and games for the kids.

Easy Summer Living

Summertime and the living is easy.

We have spent a lot of our time out on the patio in our backyard this summer. A new patio set that we had intended to get for several summers and finally have, has done a lot to draw our interest in that direction.

This particular evening we were wrapping up the weekend with pizza on the patio.
