Fun Size?


I mean really, who are they trying to kid with that"Fun Size" label?

If you ask me the fun size is a Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds the size of an iPad!

Our Hall of Shame

I know exactly who to blame thank for this idea. 

 It's that foxy Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage.  It all started when I saw this pic of Shannon on Facebook .  She had turned herself into a Zombie (she's really nice I promise) with PicMonkey.  

Before long, bloggers all over the place were joining her legions and she created a gallery of Blogger's gone bad here. 

I couldn't resist turning nice pictures of our family at Yellowstone this summer into something a bit more sinister with PicMonkey.

This was my favorite transformation.  My Stepson is a true spider-phobe.  I'm not sure he could even look at it...sorry bud!

Then I printed the pictures and replaced my ordinarily peaceful black and white fern pictures with my new Zombies just in time for our October party.

After everyone showed up, it took a minute to realize that THEY were the eerie people on the wall. 

Although I'm not so sure that that everyone was amused with being inducted into my "Hall of Shame".

One thing is fairly certain though.  Even thought these wall sconces have been black for a while, as soon as Halloween is over, they are going to get painted a bright happy color.  

I don't want to have a flashback every time I step foot in the dining room.

And I just might throw around a little spider spay too, ya know,  just in case. 

The fun is still going on at PicMonkey, so it's not too late to Zombitize your family.

I Dare Ya...

I really don't think we have any haunted houses in our town.

But if we did, I'd want it to be this one.  

This beautiful old Italianate sits down on the corner just a half block from our house.

Sleeves and Armpits

Now what kind of a crazy title is that?  

Nobody starts off a blog post talking about armpits.

Nobody, except possibly me?  Well, there is some logic here.

Bedroom Makeover with Olioboard

You see them all over blogland.

Inspiration boards with all kinds of beautiful designs.  

I'm not exactly saying this is one of those beautiful boards.....but it did help me pick out an accent color and fabrics when it came time to complete my bedroom.

Button Front Pillows

With all the pillow posts I've been doing lately you'd think I'd be about fluffed-out.

Not so.....

I've got more.....

The 4th Amigo

If you happened to stop by my blog last week you may remember the three amigos. 

 (Although now that I think about it, it really should be the three amigas, because they have got to be girls with all the ruffles and rosettes.)

Steal My Heart!!

Can I be a mom for just a minute?

The kind of mom that can't resist putting a few pictures of her little girl on the blog.
