Halloween Treats aren't just for kids after all :)

By now you must know how much I love Halloween!  A day to be different, a day to celebrate, and a day to entertain! While much of the focus is spent on costumes and candy, I'd like to offer up a cocktail that's delicious and simple for the adults...as well as a virgin version for the kiddos!

Old meets New {Vision Board}

Antique Furnishings mixed with New Pieces


I worked on a living room vision board this week that I'm loving. The super fun part about vision boards is that you're able to create your own inspirational graphic that can help steer you in a design direction without making an actual purchase or commitment. It's a great way to begin a project and see how pieces would work together.

Twirl & Take a Bow Linky Party

Hey friends! It's that time of the week again we where are twirling around and taking a bow at our Monday night linky party! I'm having so much fun as a guest co-host and love seeing all of the incredible ideas that everyone is sharing.

I've been spending these past couple of weeks getting the house ready for one of our favorite days of the year---Halloween! With only a couple days to go, and costume revisions to be made for the kiddos, I'm feeling as excited as they are. Anyone else still feel like a kid on Halloween too? 

Enjoy the holiday everyone and be safe!

HALLOWEEN IN MY HOME...

My "Mini" Gallery Wall

Creating Visual Interest (on the cheap!)

Since moving into our second new home in just two years, I have been in no rush to hurry up and put holes in these newly sheet rocked walls. In my last home, I was in a crazy rush to hurry up and hang everything and make it all PERFECT! This house is different.

Twirl & Take a Bow Linky Party

Week #2 as a guest co-host for the {Twirl & Take a Bow} linky party (woo hoo)! Last week there were so many great link-ups that my head was spinning trying to read through all the amazing and clever ideas. Let's keep the sharing coming again this week!

This past week I spent some time capturing photos of my home for Halloween. After all, it is one of my favorite days of the year, so there's a little pressure to display that enthusiasm in my decor. However - if you're like most of us, and are super pressed for time, check out this cute pumpkin I made with a little chevron burlap and stick-on sequins from Michael's craft store:

Halloween Details in My Home

Halloween for many is an annoying day where pesky little kids come running around and terrorizing the neighborhood in search of more refined sugar than any human being should ever consume. For others, it's the holiday of all holidays --- and this is the case with my crazy family, ever since I can imagine. We aren't, and never have been, into all the Halloween gore. But we certainly love us some Practical Magic, Hocus Pocus, The Halloween that Almost Wasn't, Mr. Boogedy (and the list goes on). We are the adults that are probably more excited about Halloween then the kids (cue Michael Jackson's "Thriller").

Twirl & Take a Bow Linky Party


Happy Columbus Day friends! I'm not sure about you, but I'm thinking every weekend should be a three-day weekend! Nothing like a perfect fall day to recharge the batteries and soak up the colors of autumn.  I actually stepped out of {my nest} these past few days and drove through the countryside in many of my favorite upstate New York spots! Sometimes, in order to spark creativity and inspiration, you just need a time out from the hustle and bustle of life.
