A Flash of Fall

the candle holder broke on this so I covered it in fall foliage

With moving, back to school and two three birthday parties(including my surprise party) marking the month of September, October arrived in the blink of a witch’s eye.  I know I am not alone in proclaiming my love for this time of year. We pulled out the decorations Friday night and just about finished up when Sunday morning football greeted us.

Here are a few of my favorite, current decorations.  Traditionally, we add a new piece or so to our collection each year and I’ve decided to go bird hunting this time around.  I’m looking for black, sparkly, ravens(think Edgar Allan Poe meets Martha Stewart).

love how this candle holder from a year ago is aging

happy jack!

this year's collection at Cost Plus is inspired by vintage halloween postcards


Happy Mondays

{never knew what my favorite Sees chocolates were called}

Last week, seemed to fly by.  I’m not sure if it was because my eldest daughter left for her trip to the east coast or the fact my holiday shopping is far from complete.  In any event, these three things were all surprises and added that extra special touch to an otherwise hectic week.
