Tis The Season~ DIY Alert

How fabulous are these candlesticks?
Love the collected over the years from 
travels all over the world...effect.
Of course most of us don't have bins
of odd pieces china and trinkets  just sitting around...
however, a quick trip over to the local Treasure House,
Salvation Army, etc would do the trick and for a small amount 
of monies, a bit of imagination and of course,
a glue gun ...
something akin to this could easily be had~
for oneself or gifting.
OR, you could head over to the 
fabulousness within
the layered and collected world

On a similar but different note...

Got a taste for a bit more shine
and modern appeal?...


                                    or soft spot for a plumber?

 Either way, it's an

Hello November

For me, Fall begins on November 1st~ 
(thanks Indian Summer)
and of course my thoughts turn to all things
 Midwest and East Coast~
cause that's where it all goes down.
Layers, coats, suede...

Right now, it's all about the rich browns and velvety textures...
And if this is what fall is really like, then I welcome it with open arms.

Let The Festivities Begin!

Yep, it's that time of year (that night) night where we embellish our homes 
and doorsteps with cut out pumpkins, flickering orange lights and 
lots & lots of  candy.
The one night to welcome strangers to our
 doorsteps both young and old alike, while dressed up in 
strange yet, familiar costumes.
It IS sensory  overload~ the sights, the sounds
the smells...

 ...and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Play safe.
