I'm Still Here...

Hello, I'm still here...are you????  Please excuse my absence, I've had a busy couple of months with traveling, work, and just life in general and my blog kind of fell by the wayside.  I didn't mean to be so neglectful, but once I got out of my grove, it was hard to get back on.  In my time away, I was able to do some reflecting and decided while I do enjoy blogging, I don't necessarily have the time to do it everyday.  Plus, I want to be excited and passionate about what I do share here, rather than just showing up and posting something just for the sake of posting.  So I'm going to shoot for at least two entries a week, and if I happen to find something great to share on top of that, well then that will just be a bonus!  Sound good?

Today I'll just share a bit of my Halloween decor with you.  I normally don't do too much for this spooky holiday, but I guess I was feeling a bit festive (and crafty) this year.

Some vignettes around the house...

I bought the glass owl last year at TJ Maxx (for $2) and had no idea what I was going to do with it so it's been hidden away in my closet.  This year I decided to break out my trusty metallic spray paint and give him a shiny new coat.  Now he's perfect for Halloween!

I didn't change my entry console set up too much.  Basically I just added the glittery skull under the dome instead of my coral and changed the white candlesticks to black.

I whipped up the pillow in the background from an old Ikea curtain panel & appliqued a felt raven on it. 

I love making these fabric pumpkins, I've been scavenging through every pumpkin bin I see to find broken stems so I can add to my collection.  Plus I can keep these guys around until Thanksgiving!

Do you decorate for Fall, or do you hold out for Christmas to switch things up?  That's right, I said's going to be here before we know it!

Also, I discovered that the e-mail address attached to this blog,, has some sort of virus that's caused me not to receive any e-mails in quite some time.  I'm so sorry if you tried to contact me this way, I hope you don't think I ignored you.  If you need to contact me, you can e-mail me at
