family pictures

I am always kind of at a loss when it comes to displaying new family pictures.  I have so many frames in my home already, on walls and on shelves, so I am always hesitant to squeeze in one more.  Recently Easy Canvas Prints emailed me offering to try out one of their canvases.  I was so excited, as I have been wanting to do something with this photo of all the grandkids at the beach this summer.  I absolutely love the way it turned out!  And I love that I can just set it out in my home and it speaks for itself without needing a frame or anything else.  I am planning on ordering a larger one for my husband's office because he loved it so much as well.  Have you ever ordered a picture printed on canvas?  What did you think?

Friday's Quote:
Ordinary riches can be stolen
real riches cannot.
In your soul 
are infinitely precious things
that cannot be taken from you.
-Oscar Wilde-

What are your plans for the weekend?
Perhaps sewing up Halloween costumes, carving pumpkins, and sipping apple cider?
Whatever you do, have a fun and festive weekend!

happy 16th birthday, emily!

My youngest daughter Emily turned 16 today.  I can hardly believe it.  We were in California all week and came home late last night and, apparently, some little munchkins had been working on a little birthday surprise for Emily while we were gone...

Some of her nieces and nephews made her this fabulous "Happy Birthday" sign...

 and filled her room with balloons...

they sure do love their Aunt Emily!
Happy Birthday, Emily!

still working...

So, there are always those little touches you thought would be done with a remodel that end up sitting there for years undone...  I had big plans when we put these doors in that I would have this amazing metal work put in, hang beautiful outdoor draperies and grow something all along the metal bars.  Months after the remodel I had the metal work put up, then nothing for a while.  And this summer I finally started growing something on it, but still no draperies.  Maybe in a few months I will have those to share...  we'll see.

redecorating for fall

I love decorating for the seasons, even if it is just a few little things I put out to be festive and then general rearranging because I simply cannot help myself.  I love this recent find of an old portrait with the added mask and flames coming out of her hair.  And, then I can't help but put up some new mirrors and frames and a new lamp I got for a steal at an antique store and move things from place to place...  Tell me I'm not the only one who does this each new season (or every couple months...)?

And, of course, I always have to put out my pumpkins.  
These are a holiday decoration I will never get tired of.
I especially love my bowl of baby pumpkins...

I am so excited for nicer weather!

Friday Madness!

So, we decided to start up a little something we like to call Friday Madness. Every Friday we will offer a storewide discount to all of our very lovely customers. Without further ado, today's Friday Madness...
Stop in today and spruce up your fall wardrobe!
We would love to know- What would you like to see go on sale next Friday?

Friday's Quote:
"Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives, and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique."

Wishing you all a very fabulous and relaxing weekend!

haunted house

This weekend some of the grandkids and I had a lot of fun making our own haunted house.  I bought this old doll house at the flea market for $5, then picked up some decorating supplies at Michael's and we went to work.  The kids had so much fun and I love the way it turned out.  A little spooky, a little kitschy, a little silly...  just right.  I really loved watching their creativity and how they wanted to decorate it, like the rooms full of spiders.  So, what do you think?

Well, my two youngest children are both hitting some pretty major birthdays this year... 21 and 16.  Before Alex left to go back to college we had a little birthday party for him, along with our family tradition of a slideshow on your 21st birthday.  This year we set up a screen by the pool and let all the little kids float around on rafts as we watched the last 21 years of Al's life go by in photos.  Then, he was off to school where, I am sure, he had the real 21st birthday party with all his friends.  And, next up is Emily's birthday.  What do you do as a parent in the age of extravagant sweet 16 parties?  Can some nice gifts and a tray of cupcakes cut it?  Do you do anything major for birthdays in your family?  Do you have any birthday traditions that fall with certain ages?  Please share!  Perhaps I can come up with something for a 16 year old that isn't too over the top...

around the shop

More new things around the shop to share.  All our little fall treasures and fall colors have me so excited for the seasons ahead!  And, of course, we have some always exciting Halloween goodies to get you in that spooky Halloween mood!  So much new stuff, you really should just stop in and see us.  And, once again, a huge new order hit the store today, after these pictures were taken, so it is already looking new once more...  Isn't that the fun of it?
