This is about as scary as I get...

I love the sound of the rain as it falls pitter-pat outside... oh, thank you fall weather for showering us with your goodness! The dark grey skies, and the cooler temps have me happily working with a new table runner in hand, and my favorite scary movies on DVD. Well, it's my-kind-of scary...





HaPPY HaLLoweeN!

a few kits left...

The never ending chore of cleaning my art room is finally at the top of my "to do" list. Oh please let today be the day it's finally done! I'm sure you know how I goes....
Anyways, I came across a few left over kits from Tinsel & Treasures. They're all wrapped up and ready to go, everything you see is included, and they take about an hour to complete with little more than scissors, a bit of glue, and a little tape. You can find them here if you're interested.

welcoming fall...

It hardly seems possible that we're already deep into October. But we are, and thankfully this year's weather is beginning to feel like fall. It's got me in the mood to cozy up our home, pull out the throw blankets and quilts, and welcome the cooler days ahead.
I was surprised to hear my husband say he wanted to start looking for new furniture for our living room, but I suppose it's time for that as well.
With the exception of our sofa's, our furniture has come from antique shops, thrift stores, and flea markets so I was unsure of where to begin our search for couches.
Until I went to Restoration Hardware's website... theirs is completely the look I'm going for!
I love all the non-color... the linen covered sofas, the wood, and the industrial pieces of the rooms they've designed! Being married to an archer, I've finally decided to go with this look completely; trophy's on the wall, cow hides, and painted wood floor! And the big bonus is that we've got all of this stuff already, so we only need to find the sofa!
So while we haven't settled on which of these we'll order, I had that color scheme in mind when I went junking with a girlfriend last week. It was so easy, and such fun shopping with a color pallet in mind...

These are a few of the things I found, and while these have a feminine touch that R.H. doesn't, I figure if I'm willing to have a full mount bear in my living room, my husband and son can deal with roses on our platters, old silverware, and etched shot glasses to sip from!
