so i thought we had a deal
i played the old~
i've been trick or treating for 16 years
since 1993 in fact,
whatya say we take a break.
let's pass on buying yet another costume that runs me 40 smackers.
i'll buy you out.
i'll get you your own bag of favorite treats
in fact, i'll even splurge & hit the local bakery for fresh baked goodies
she was aok with this
she really was...
(big sisters all had weekend party plans
speaking of which, didn't it seem like halloween lasted for three days?)
she rolls in after school
& being the event planner that she is
had pulled together a loaner costume,
been invited to a halloween party on saturday,
had invited friends over to trick or treat on sunday
don't judge me ok
when the big three were little ones
we went all out
poor youngest of four
but we had a great time at our neighborhood party last night
& the girls had a blast trick or treating
last week i realized
all of a sudden
that october was hitting the road
& november was rolling in
november 1st means only one thing to me
OH MY GOODNESS!!!
christmas is only a few weeks ago
why do i already sorta feel a little anxiety?
i am going to make my own deal with myself .
to NOT be stressed with all the to-do's
and truly enjoy the process
wish me luck
i jumped in with both feet on this bringing the outdoors in style
i have a few urns full of branches
most of which i sprayed painted just a subtle silvery gold
i love the dimension & texture they add to each space
these are in the kitchen
& yes ma'am
i've packed the pumpkins away.
we're movin' on
except for this sweet little guy
that i painted white
branches in the living room
& some branches in our master.
this one is actually quite tall
the Ballard Designs holiday catalog arrived this weekend.
when i saw the suzanne kesler feature
i think i actually made an audible gasp
the suzanne kesler section is fab!!
the picture online is not the full display they feature in the catalog.
(i'll try to scan that & share later)
but apparantly i can incorporate my little branch gig into my holiday decor!
