Happy "BOO" to You!

Well hello and BOO to you! Hope you are enjoying Fall. This is about as Halloween as I get! My kids get spooked pretty easy and honestly I just cant stand all the gore. Watching the news is bad enough. Free candy? Well thats a different story.
I know you saw this Mr. Crow last year but I miss him. I cant figure out where I put him last year, so here he is again. He was such fun to make.

I was tagged by the lovely "Frenchy" of  Le Chateau des Fleurs and am so honored that she would think of me. If you havent seen her blog before you should run right over. This girl is the cutest thing ever and has a party with her kids for anything you can imagine. Last Easter she had ducks in her bathtub! I just love her and am so inspired by how she makes everyday an event. She makes me want to be a better mom.

Happy Friday to all of you. Have a fun & safe weekend.

Busy October

An evening in Paris for a great cause!
 On October 8th, Paris in a Cup held a lovely fundraiser for "Team Think Pink". The food was amazing as always. Ive had tea & lunch there a few times and you can see more of Paris here.
This is one of my best friends, Lydia who is also one of my sales reps. She chose this evening to launch her new line,"Lydia Says!"
 These gloves are the prettiest rubber gloves ever. Notice the cute tag on her packaging, isn't that too cute?!
Here is another picture of them. I am so proud of Lydia, she has worked so hard on this project. And the icing on the cake is that she sold every pair!

 Here I am with my partner in sweet crimes, Candy. This was at the "Dress Pink to Drink" event hosted by The Brick Basement.
 They have really beautiful pieces and over 30 dealers. I loooove this silver set. I think I will mention it to Santa  aka my hubby!
 I am so tempted to buy this dress.I wonder if its my size?
I just love the deep amber color on this vintage decanter & set of glasses.
 More fabulous vintage platters and silver pieces.
This chandelier is to die for! This picture doesn't do it justice.
 Come by the Brick Basement for their upcoming Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 6th 10-5.

Porch & Table Party

 Welcome to the Porch & Table Party hosted by Common Ground!
My husband made this hall tree; it's the cat's favorite place to nap.
She wasn't very happy about my decorating ideas!
This is my old bucket I painted  "Bonjour" on and cut a hole in a garage sale stool to fit it in!

Pumpkin, pumkin whose got the pumpkin?
We do! We were good can we have a biscuit?

How about a song instead?

"Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush."

-  Van Morrison, Moondance
I will be at Paris in a Cup tonight for their annual fundraiser to
support "Team Think Pink". 
I would love to see you!

Glitterfest=Eye Candy!

I have never been so inspired as I was yesterday after visiting Glitterfest.
In a word,"Wowzie"!!
These lovely ladies were not just creative but  teachers and  entrepneurs too. Everyone of them was as charming as she could be!
So let me introduce you.....

This is Rita of Mammabellarte She is so sweet and her booth was amazing.

I bought one of her bird ornaments....darling.

This is the fabulous & amazing artist  Christie Repasy! She is as sweet as her paintings.
Her work is beautiful!

And the sweet & spunky Janet Schultz from the Muses Studio

Her dolls are made to order, completely custom. In the foreground you can see how they start. My youngest son wants one so badly, he was quite intrigued by the whole process!

Sweet Magnolias Farm is sooooo SWEET! Oh my gosh this girl is the cutest ever. She has the most interesting hand made aprons. This picture doesnt do it justice!

And last but not least I met dear Becky! Can you believe these dolls? It takes her 3 entire days to complete one. The detail is stunning. You can reach her at

There was so much to see and Glitterfest was really hoppin so it was quite difficult to take pictures.
I hope you enjoyed meeting these lovely ladies and if you are in so cal next march you should stop in. You wont be dissapointed!
