In honor of the day, I thought I would take a few snapshots of things around our house. Found these candles and thought they looked fun, smell festive too!

Happy I know what I want for Christmas:))

We did revisit an old favorite this week! Hocus Pocus is good clean fun for everyone:D
Morning time around my house is the calmest. Baby K lays down for a nap and I lay with her until she is sleeping soundly. During this time and because of the whole "babies and background noise" I quietly flip through channels not really paying attention and plot out my day ahead. Yesterday while channel surfing eerie music caught my attention....OK I'm watching now....The grainy color and dark contrast of the film were indeed intriguing. I was soon enough hooked and according to the epg was watching The Haunting of Julia a 1977 Mia Farrow film.....
Good old fashioned thriller! Great for getting into the spirit of the season:)
By the way...I saw my first Christmas commercial!
Happy new ideas!

Happy Happy! Love your living room camp out director!

Girls day! We headed South to explore! In and out of the many crafty little shops we found I could not close my discriminating eyeballs! Everywhere I looked I was surrounded by awesome talent and imagination. I would love to have one of everything I saw...but I could not stomach the prices and again my discriminating eyes showed my how I could create my own versions of what I was coveting most for a fraction of the cost.
I am always humbled by the talents of myself and those around me. I believe everyone is capable of greatness!
I could not stop thinking of my little family the whole while I was "shopping" I had nearly eighty dollars to spend as I may.... But did I need to? Couldn't I squirrel it away for a rainy day or a night on the town with my most importants? Plus do what I enjoy most? My most favorite hobby...
My choice was made and I enjoyed the pleasure of window shopping with three of my favorite ladies!
Brain full of wonderful images. Projects I cannot wait to get my busy paws creating ....Beautiful prints displayed on canvas blocks! Jessie Wilcox Smith images swirling around my imagination:) Vintage creations! Christmas decorations! When I look around my home I am proud...Proud of what we have created and with our own hands keep the safest.
Choose happiness everyday! I believe in you!
Thanks Mom, Dad and Mag for a wonderful day:)

I decided to make myself an earring holder and love it! I realized that many of my posts have to do with organization...but I finally have the time to do it! I feel so incredibly busy and there is always so much to be done, but I am grateful for a flexible schedule now. Full-time work and full-time school never was good for making a home. So I find myself organizing and doing all the things that I have wanted to do for years and feeling like it is coming together one day at a time.
I have become a fan of pink as of late and even though it doesn't match the bathroom, couldn't resist! Again, just got a frame from the thrift store for $1, painted it, backed it with fiberglass screening and then with fabric. Add a hanger and you're done!
I found this cute shadow box at the thrift store for $1 with the roses in it. The door is hinged, so it can be closed for a box, but I like to keep it open for more dimension and so it can stand up. All it needed with a little TLC - removal of some extra hardware, a little paint and glass cleaner. Cute for the baby room or living room.

If I had to describe today in one word it would be...Sublime! The warm October sun played tricks on our senses as we basked in it's evening glow. I looked over and to my hearts content was the little angel that has completed our world. Grinning at me heart full of pride, the love of my life watches on...
Knowin’ where you’re goin’ embracin’ where you’ve been
Being criticized for standin’ strong in a battle you can’t win
Livin’ in a moment you may never see again
Let your heart break some rules
