Happy Halloween!

 Today is Halloween! This is one of my most favorite holidays.  My daughter, Katelyn was going to be a dinosaur but in the 2 months since I bought the costume,  she has gotten taller.  So she will be a black cat again this Halloween.  

In honor of Halloween we carved pumpkins.  My husband really loves to outdo Katelyn and I....can you guess which pumpkin is his? I hope all my friends and family have a safe and splendid Halloween!

Interesting Ways to Decorate Your Walls

I am a BIG fan of textural - 3 dimensional - repurposed artwork.  When you are broke like me, you have to come up with some unique and thrifty ways to decorate.  Every time I am out thrifting I come across crochet pot holders, old plates, embroidery hoops and vintage fabrics.  These are usually pretty cheap too! Here are some of my most favorite wall decorating ideas!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!  I did a tutorial awhile back.  Find it here.

This would be a great way to display some of grandma's old pot holders.

 I love the way the antlers take up the empty space because of the tall ceiling. 

 Perfect for a craft room and a wonderful way to add a splash of color!

Good use for old drawers.  They kind of remind me of shadow boxes.

Old license plates would be adorable in a little boys room.
