My Holiday Styling Bliss! (2016)

Hello and a belated Happy Holidays to you! I actually started this post in the MIDDLE of the Holiday Season and now I sit in the last days of Winter Break, brain in a hibernational fog (inventing words, it seems), trying to finish what I started before the clock strikes New Year!  …I’m still working on the holiday cards, too.  sigh  ADD-Time Management Issues are AWESOME!  Anyway, I know it’s late but I HAD to complete this post for my…

Tween Life: The Magic Behind Santa

Tween Life: The Magic Behind Santa

Rosemary (11), has learned of the Magic behind Santa.  She has questioned many times over the past 2-3yrs, but after we talk and I tell her that Santa only exists as long as you believe he exists, she has always dedicated herself to continued believing… Until last weekend when I totally messed up and forgot a box filled with Santa gifts by the computer one night (online shopping and didn’t want to double up on things) and she found them in the morning and questioned…

Hello November!!!!  Red Cup Season, Turkeys galore, and as if on cue, cooler temps brought on our first frost this very morn!  I’m in Bliss!

Spider Truffles

Spider Truffles

We had great fun this weekend making these Halloween Spider Truffles and shooting our first ever YouTube video!  If you watch the video, please keep in mind you are watching a family who has zero video making experiences beyond filming our annual Happy Birthday-cake cutting traditions.  It was equal parts total video disaster that I really do NOT want to share with the world, and yet also a labor of love that I can’t wait to post because it fulfills one of Rosemary’s long time dreams of…

Our Haunted Manor

Our Haunted Manor

The Gouls and I have been busy decorating for Halloween!  My decorating style is whimsical and folksy so you won’t find any horrors at our Manor!  When creating this year’s vignettes I tried to keep in mind how long it usually takes me to transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving (…and then on to Winter) and how burnt out I get by the end of it all.  This year I tried to decorate in a way that after Halloween I can easily swap out the witches and…
