Pretty, Creepy and Sweet Vase Decor {Halloween}

Happy Sunday but most definitely Happy Fall, Y'all!  Who's happy to welcome the season? I am!  Yesterday morning the family and I woke up to some cooler temperatures.  It certainly put me in an all-things-pumpkin-spice mood. So I lit my one and only pumpkin spice candle.  Note to self: buy more of those yummy candles!

So after some Saturday giddiness I finished a little Halloween project I started a few days ago.  I got the idea from Better Homes & Gardens and I pinned it to my Halloween board on Pinterest.  At least I think I saw it on the BHG website.  I can't seem to find it anymore.  Here's my copy cat version.  

Pink Texas Chick

A really simple project that can be put together in a snap.  I originally planned to paint some branches from my front yard but when I went to the store my co-worker spotted the faux black roses.  I bought one thinking I would surround it by the painted branches but then later realized I preferred the roses over the branches.  So back I went to store to buy three more roses.  

So here is what I used: 3 bags of candy corn, 1 container of candy pumpkins, 1 black, creepy rubber rat, 4 black faux roses topped with orange and red glitter and my own glass vase.  All were purchased at The Dollar General except for the vase.  That was a wedding gift from a little over twelve years ago.  :)

I pretty much copied the vase from BHG.  I positioned the roses the way I wanted them in the vase and then I began to put the candy in the vase starting with the darker candy corn.  

After the roses were steady and in place I had my kids help me.  They had fun.  It doesn't look like it but that's because they were being a little competitive with each other.  Who can put more candy in the vase?  :)

The vase was then complete and I set it on our console table.  There you see the mail tray I made a couple of years ago.

I used a black rat because I needed something to cover up the chip in the vase and since I was using candy I thought it was perfect.  The rat covers up the chip and it looks like it's eating the candy.  Perfect!

Doesn't it look creepy from up here?  Eeeeeww!  It creeps me out to look at it from that angle but my kids think it's so cool.  

I hope y'all like my copy cat version and may you all have fun crafting and decorating this season.  Now I'm off to enjoy this Fall weather.  :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
