DIY Halloween Ribbon Wreath

Halloween Whimsy: DIY Ribbon Wreath

Well, hello my lovelies and happy Monday! It’s starting to look a lot like Halloween around here. I took down my fall wreath today, and added a little Halloween whimsy to the front porch with a diy ribbon wreath.

Last year, I had orange sparkly “BOO” letters on the front door.  But I fell in love with some black polka dot burlap ribbon I found at Michaels. … Keep on reading —>

Halloween Mantel

Halloween Decorating: Black & White with Polka Dots

I said last week that I wasn’t going to bother with much Halloween decorating this year, particularly a  mantel. Ha! I should know better by now than to say such things! Even though our Fall mantel (with the giant peel and stick posters of our kids) could have stuck around through Halloween, I got the urge to change things up! … Keep on reading —>

Fall Decorating

One Final Look at Fall Decorating ( plus: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!)

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada!  That means that Fall decorating is coming to an end around here.  I know – say it ain’t so!

Canadian Thanksgiving happens much earlier in the Fall than our American friends’ celebration. Once Thanksgiving Day passes here, the next big seasonal decorating holiday besides Halloween is Christmas.

Fall Decorating - Front Porch Ideas

Over the next couple of weeks, the Fall pumpkins on front porches will get carved into jack-o-lanterns; and, once October 31st comes and goes, it’s usually the last you’ll see of pumpkins and foliage around here. … Keep on reading —>

Pretty Ways to Organize Jewellery (A Peek In My Closet!)

Jewellery organization isn’t something I’ve ever been great at.  I’ve never figured out how to organize jewellery in a way that makes it easy to find and wear. I think I had a jewellery box once upon a time, but it only fit a fraction of my stash of costume jewellery. So most of that stuff ended up in a tangled mess in a dresser drawer.… Keep on reading —>

Boo wreath Halloween

Kid-Friendly Halloween Decorating Ideas

Um, did somebody say Halloween decorating? I’m sure I saw some here and here and pretty much all over my Pinterest feed. Is it just me, or did September just evaporate before our eyes?  I feel so behind this Fall.  Sheesh. I only just finished a little early Fall decorating, and now Halloween is upon us!


I’m usually brainstorming new Halloween decorating ideas by now, but I haven’t given it any thought.  … Keep on reading —>

Nature Walk Printable

Nature Walk Printable {Fun Fall Activity for Kids}

Greetings earthlings!  Happy first of October to you!  I’m just popping in to share a fun Nature Walk printable that I made for my kids.


I’ve confessed before that I’m not really a summer girl. I know, what’s wrong with me, right? The whole idea of ‘enjoying’ time in the great outdoors in crazy heat and humidity is lost on me.… Keep on reading —>

Kids’ Art Station Inspiration: 20 Fun Ideas

Do your kids love arts and craft projects as much as mine?  My 9-year old daughter absolutely loves to draw, and has an arsenal of supplies to feed her passion. The only problem was that there were tiny mountains of paper and coloring supplies in every room! (Does this sound vaguely familiar?!?) In an effort to organize things, last spring, I created an organized art station for her in a little corner of our TV room.… Keep on reading —>

Fall Wreath

Fall Wreath Time! (My New Wreath: Texture vs Color)

So I’ve been using the same DIY Fall wreath for years.  I made it at least 10 years ago, and every year, I perk it up a little by adding something new.  Last year it was burlap. I still like it a lot, but this Fall, I had the itch to make something entirely new.  Since my usual Fall wreath is full of color, I decided to go a different route. … Keep on reading —>
