Hope everyone has a fun Halloween! Let's share some ghost stories!

My oldest daughter and I were at a local florist. It's a darling and quaint shop in an old building. It is known around the area that they have a ghost. We were waiting for our arrangement and all of the sudden a door of a cabinet we were standing next to just opened. It was closed tightly. I know because I was admiring it because it was a beautiful antique. So I said to the owner, that must be your resident ghost. She said no that he always makes himself known to her when he is around. Don't know what it was, or how it opened, but it was kinda neat and not too scary!


This fun vintage looking Halloween house is a recent find a Marshalls. A great bargain too as it was marked down to $6.00! Has a tag on it "Vintage Collections by Bethany." I think it might be a Bethany Lowe. If so, an even better bargain! So if you get a chance to check out your local Marshalls, you might be able to pick up a few treats!

Time for Goodies...

I won these gorgeous pink rose pumpkins from Ronda at Tempting Textiles. They are so pretty and feminine! A touch of fall without the traditional colors! And I wish you could smell how wonderful their scent is! Ronda packed them with a little sachet. It's just divine! Please check out Tempting Textiles. Rhonda has lovely items I think you'll enjoy!

One of the best things about having a webstore and a blog is meeting people from all over that I wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to meet. Denise M. lives all the way across the country from me in Washington.

Denise is such a sweetie! I find this gorgeous hand decorated package in my mailbox and I just had to say oooohhhhhh....And inside is a set of beautiful pink rose postcards and a pair of linen guest towels with...guess what??...Pink polka dots!! How wonderful!!! The towels, well they are so ME! I want to find some frames to make a collage of the pink rose cards on the wall. Thank you Denise!! What a wonderful surprise!

Here's a fun and unexpected find from this past weekend. I was at a garage sale and picked up a little baggie of buttons. I asked the man how much they were. He said, "Oh you like buttons?" Of course! He said hold on I have more....comes out with this gorgeous glass container full of buttons! Gave me a terrific price too! I don't know what I'm more excited about...more buttons to sort...or the fabulous container!

Happy Monday my friends!!

20 Years Ago Today.....

husband and I were married. It was such a gorgeous autumn day. Warm and sunny with the leaves at their peak. Just perfect.

It was Friday the 13th. My future brother-in-law stood on the steps of the chapel and said, "Friday the 13th, black bridesmaids dresses, and a full moon. Yeah...I give this marriage 2 weeks." Well, I guess we proved him wrong! LOL!

This is us on our honeymoon in the Poconos. (I spared you the picture of us in our heart-shaped bathtub!)
