A little Halloween Goodness

We’ve been working on our Halloween decorations this week and I just couldn’t wait to share a few pictures!


Highlights from Etsy

One day while perusing the World Wide Web I discovered the most delightful Etsy shop. Love to Party is brimming with brightly colored, gorgeous party supplies. There are cupcake kits, cupcake toppers, straws, candles, and all sorts of goodies. I especially loved the tiara cupcake toppers (perfect for my littlest niece) and my nephew would love the cowboy cupcake kit. I fell instantly in love with so many of the kits that I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite. This shop is the perfect place to visit when planning a party!

Dress Up Fun!

Saturday, April 9 arrived and with it our annual Renaissance Faire Trek.  We pick one weekend and visit the Four Winds Renaissance Faire in Troupe, TX.  We love dressing up, leaving behind most of the electronics (one must have a cell phone) and enjoying a day out.  We always watch the jousting and this year we also saw the belly dancers.  We ate Shepherd’s Pie and Fried Pretzels and visited all the little shops and booths.  My favorite visit this year was at the weaver’s little shop.  She had her loom set up and her so many pretties for sale.  She had some beautiful shawls and capes.  Unfortunately they were a little out of my price range.  I did purchase a little bag and two sweet little sheep, though.

Lovely Halloween Masks

I just love these masks from Bag and Baby.  They are beautiful works of art and make me think of the masked balls I read about, not to mention my sweetie’s marriage proposal.  We were in attendance at a ball at a Renaissance Faire when he declared his love, dropped to one knee and popped the question!   Stop by and get yours today!  With an air of romance and just the right amount of spooky, they are perfect for your Halloween festivities!

One of My Favorite Catalogs

If you like vintage and retro goodies, then you must pay visit to Betty’s Attic. Their website is as much fun as their catalogs. Both are chocked full of all kinds of goodies.
