Easy Halloween Decor!

October 19

Halloween is less than two weeks away!  And if you’re as busy as everyone else seems to be this year, you might not have all your decorations out for the season!  I used to go all out for Halloween…it really is one of our favorite holidays to decorate for!  But as the kids have grown, I’ve really tried to dial it back a notch when it comes to my Halloween decor and only go a little crazy when we have a party!  So today I’d like to share some of my simple displays and a few of my favorite things to make decorating easy!  If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands you can still add some spooktacular fun to your rooms…

cast a spell…

and get your Halloween decor ready!

The “ABCs” of Shopping!

August 15

I’ve been doing a lot of talking about our wonderful weekend trip to New York City a couple weeks ago!  It was my first visit and one I won’t soon forget!  And even though it was a whirlwind couple of days, we had so much fun packing in shopping, eating, and TONS of sight seeing!  Anyone who’s had the good fortune to spend time there knows that there’s no end to all the things you can do and see in that great city…so we need to go again, and again…and again!  When I asked one of my friends, who’s very familiar with the city, what shops we should see while we were there she told me that I absolutely HAD to visit ABC Carpet & Home….ABC Carpet & Home?? I wasn’t expecting that one.  Sounding a bit utilitarian, I have to admit initially it didn’t sound all that appealing.  But knowing she has such impeccable taste I went straight to the computer and googled…let me tell you that she was so totally right!  I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome their site is…and it goes without saying that the real deal is even better!  Let me share with you some of the best shopping I’ve ever experienced…
