Well, we had a wonderful time tonight. I made taco soup with all the fixins. We also had a veggie tray with dips etc... Everything went over well, but this sweet and salty mix was a big hit. I posted about this earlier, and gave the recipe to you. Everyone really loved it!!! A definite for Thanksgiving get-togethers.
Youngest as Thomas.....
Oldest little guy...not to be confused with "Batman-The Dark Knight"
Here is me feeling pretty lucky hanging out with "Thomas" and "Batman".
Nanny came all dolled up!!! How much fun is she? She always made Halloween so much fun when I was growing up. My twin and I always, by choice, had matching costumes. One year we were Wonder Woman. It was awesome!!!!
If you ever wished for the perfect aunt....she would be the one. Becky came with gifts and Halloween treats for all the boys. My little guys love to see Aunt Becky drive up. She is my long time best friend.
Aunt Becky with Little Lily... Love them both!!!!
Don't even know this little beauty, but had to ask her mom if I could take a pic of her for my blog. What a doll!!!!
Hummm.... Pretty good take on the Democratic Candidate....
Absolutely precious boy that lives a street over. Talk about a doll!!! He is so sweet!!!

I have been getting the sweetest emails and comments this week asking about what I sell other than what is listed on ETSY.... I actually had to sit down and think about it. So, here goes... These covered letters and coordinating plates came right to mind. I cover letters with beautiful paper...you pick the color scheme...and then I slightly glitter them. These are so cute embellished with a tag..like the one I did for my niece's nursery. I made myself an "A" and placed it in my office area. I enjoy it so much! The cost per letter is $12.00. I also cover plates in either matching or coordinating paper (also like in photo below) to either hang on the wall or sit around to hold some of your "favorite things". The cost per plate is $8.50.
As you know, I also make glittered picture frames. These are so much fun for me to create. I welcome custom ideas. I embellish with cute wooden cut outs and place your message on each. Perfect for family photos, baby gifts, nurseries, birthdays,...the list goes on and on. The cost for my frames is $10.00
I love designing cute glittered magnets for almost any and every occasion. Again, I welcome any custom messages. The cost for these is $2.00.
Since I posted them last Friday, I have been getting several emails and comments about my framed vintage glass pendants. Yes, I do sell these too. The cost for these is $12.00. I am sold out of the cute snowman/angel pendant.
Lastly, I am so very thankful and feel very blessed for the many orders, sweet comments, and ETSY conversation emails I have received the past couple of weeks about my crystal pendant necklaces. I truly appreciate all of you. If you are wondering, the cost is now $12.00. Thanks so much!!!
If you have any questions about any of these items, or just want to say hello, I would love to hear from you. I've also had several emails about payment methods for things not listed on ETSY. I am now taking PAY PAL right from my blog. Just email me (address now on my blog) with any questions and/or order ideas, and I can simply email you a Pay Pal invoice. So easy....

It's called Something Simple. It is in Eureka Springs. My sister introduced me to this store last Christmas. I fell in love instantly. The owner is precious. She specializes in cottage style home furnishings, linens, and gifts. If you are ever in the area, you have to stop in. Everything is white, natural, crystal, glass.....delightful. I can't wait to visit again this Christmas.
Wouldn't you love to cozy up with a good book in this chair. Me too....
I love this feathered wreath...
She also has a cottage that you can rent. I have yet to stay here, but I definitely want to one day. Like her store, I love the cottage look...all natural....

Well, while the boys carved pumpkins tonight, I had a great time creating this frame for Shannon at Bless Our Nest. I thought I would give her a sneak peek before I sent it on its way tomorrow. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed making it for you. Thanks so much!!
I just had to make her a cute magnet as well. Fun...Fun...Fun.....

First, I want to thank everyone who has emailed or sent comments about my little crystal pendant necklaces and my holiday pendants. I have been in heaven making these beauties. Saturday was my first holiday show. I brought many things.... Most I made myself and other things I ordered. I am a sucker for vintage print metal signs. I love to embellish them with glitter, after I get them in. It is like magic!!! I also love Raz vintage things as well as Seasons of Cannon Falls Holiday beauties. You can't go wrong with these companies. Here are a few pictures... My camera was not cooperating with me, so some of these are a little dark. So sorry...
Bless her heart.. My friend Susan helped me all day on Saturday. We had so much fun!! It was so nice to have seven hours to chat, with no little ones. It went by really fast. She was my cheerleader!! I love you my friend....
You knew it... My crystal pendants with ball chains took center stage.
These were a hit. Everyone really liked them. I was so happy!!
My Glittered Framed Microscope Pendants with Vintage Images went over well too!!!
Cute Vintage Glittered Santa
Cute Raz Holiday Cupcakes...
Cute Vintage Metal Signs-You guessed it...Glittered

I received a wonderful wholesale order this week from a store owner in Ardmore Oklahoma. Her business name is "Like a Rhinestone Cowgirl"..so cute. I had so much fun creating pendants for her with leopard, zebra, damask, and camo prints. They turned out so cute!! I am also preparing for a show tomorrow in Owasso Oklahoma. Here is a little peek at what I have been working on...
You guessed it, a million crystal pendant necklaces....

Because today is my 50th post, I thought I would do a giveaway!!! I picked my "Domestic Goddess" pendant as the prize. The Nester is also hosting a shopping gala, and I have included my pendants. How fun... Just leave a comment by the end of the day on Wednesday, October 22nd. I will post the winner Thursday morning. Thanks to all!!!
Don't you love a good garage sale? Me too. Our neighborhood had one on Saturday, so my hubby drove me and the boys around for most of the morning. We had so much fun!! I found this buffet/dresser just down the road from my house. I loved it!! It was a bargain at $50.00. I plan to paint blue where the gold is and do a little glazing. So much fun... I will send an after picture after I get it done.
At the same sale, I also found this super cute tole painted umbrella holder for 50 cents Wow!!! I think I am going to put wood in it and place it by the fireplace.
