Almost Halloween...all I can think of is Candy!!!


I couldn't resist buying a pumpkin last week. They were only $3.99 so I picked this one for my front porch. It's not for carving. We'll get some for jack~o~lanterns later. Some of my near~by neighbors have some pretty autumn displays outside. Tomorrow I'll hopefully get out to take some photos for you. North Guilford is especially pretty right now. The trees are so colorful and bright. We actually had snow day before yesterday. It was a little strange to say the least.


Please visit Vanessa's Hauntingly Magical Celebration. It is so spooky and fun!! Her photos are awesome. Oh what Halloween fun!!


Please also check out Sheryn's blog, Pink and Pretty designs. She is having her first blog giveaway and wow is it a nice one.

I am working on some Halloween crafts. This is a little sneak peak at the very first altered book I have ever attempted. It is far from being finished. It needs lots more embellisment... some pretty yet spooky ribbons, and more millinery. Maybe a touch of lace. It is so much fun to make. I am also making some spooky little Halloween tags. I will show you everything when I get them finished.


I have finally opened an Etsy shop (WooHoo!!!). I have been wanting to open an Etsy shop for a long time. I even added a little widget in my bloggy sidebar. I don't know about you all, but I am having so much fun doing all this creative stuff and making gadgets to show them all off. Blogging really is the best creative outlet. I am really having so much fun!!! Plus I am so excited that I had my first customer in my online shop last week!! YAY!!

I love that people actually stop by to visit my blog. I can't believe that I have actual followers that come to visit regularly!! All you fellow bloggers are some of the sweetest and nicest people I know. Now I am off to read some of your blogs and see all of your lovelies!! I am still so horribly behind with my reading and visiting.

Hi, Rebecca! All I have are 2 mini real pumpkins but I have plenty of fake ones!

If you ever stock those scrumptious forget- me -nots in one of your shops, I'll buy them from you! I love them so much and have already used them in one of my crafts! ♥
