Celebrating Halloween

The pages of the calendar blowing in the wind tell me that the night of ghouls and goblins will soon be upon us.  As I prepare to turn the page I want to leave this month with words of caution.  Watch for witches with red brooms and little ghosts that scurry behind the bushes and trees. Have a Happy Halloween easy on the treats.

Trick or Treat?

Well imagine my surprise when I got back home this evening and my email box had a lot of birthday wishes in it and my blog has been "Hacked"  I thought you all may want to see who the little culprit is.  So here she is, my little mischeif maker. You tell me was it a Trick or a Treat?  I love my family and they make my life so worthwhile.

Fall Fashion Colors

Fall is an amazing time of transition, as we watch the weather turning from warm to cool. This layered necklace is a great compliment to this season's fashion colors.  I loved working with the items I recieved from The beautiful colors of light topaz for warmth and the coolness of silver.  A great fashion color combo for fall this year.  Thanks to for suppling these wonderful products to design with. Make sure you check out their projects page for other great ideas.
Disclosure...As a reviewer of products at, I received the Swarvoski crystal beads and pearls as well as the sterling silver toggle clasp, the silvertoned chains and components used in the project above free of charge. I have been asked to review these products and give my honest opinion of the products...positive or negative. I am not being compensated by for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received and reviewed.

Great Gifts!

So, here's the reason blogging has been a little slow lately. Little miss Ivy Jane decided to come three weeks early. This is my oldest son's sweet little baby girl and look at her going for that thumb. Oh, oh. Nothing was going to stop that.

We have other good news. This is Desiree and Bryton, my youngest son's baby. We were there to rejoice in the birth of this darling little boy three weeks ago.We are so grateful for these beautiful gifts
