handmade with a little love thrown in...

When I was a little girl I remember my grandma sewing me a Halloween costume that was a jester. She let me see bits and pieces of it while she made it but when it was complete it was absolutely beautiful. I wore that costume for several years.
For my son,  he has always loved dressing up but puts lots of thought into his Halloween costume. I very rarely get him to pick out a Halloween costume from a store and he always wants to be something that they don't make Halloween costumes for. Last year it was red licorice and this year he wanted to be his favorite ugly doll.
I went to work today on my sewing machine to recreate it and finished the hat today. I love how I'm able to do my favorite thing which is create and at the same time giving my son a memory that I am sure he will cherish from his childhood when he is older.

let the decorating commence...

It's almost October so that means it's time to decorate for Halloween. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love sprucing up the house in Halloween decor. Not the gory and scary decorations but vintage and fun decorations. And who doesn't love candy?  ;-)

happy fall...

Since we have finally moved into fall I decided to pick up my knitting needles and create. I've been working on scarves adding additional elements where I can. Maybe if I make enough I'll have enough to start an etsy shop. Only time will tell.

scavenger hunt in the backyard...

Our backyard is a great place to explore since you never know what you'll find.  It was funny because when we moved into this house that was my biggest complaint,  that the yard was just to small. But it's funny after living here awhile (and building our side yard) I really like it. Plus,  you never know what you'll encounter.

sand in our toes...


We have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather recently and are soaking it in right until the last drop. Heading out for beach visits, cooling off with ice cream, and even some bubbles in the backyard.

Crossing my fingers and toes that we are able to enjoy a few more days of this weather. I'm not ready to pull out my sweaters and scarves just yet...

adventure's in cooking...

I am still enjoying my blue apron deliveries and thankfully Ethan has as well. It's taken us on a culinary journey which is a good thing. Plus,  it's a little therapeutic to be back in the kitchen.
