Pinkitzels


 Today was the most fun.  Claire and Debbie gave Savannah Kay a baby shower.


They choose the most adorable location .....Pinkitzels in Oklahoma City.


It is darling....every inch is well thought out  and visually it is over the top fun!!!
I am so glad we have something so fresh here in Oklahoma City.  Cupcakes....hot chocolate....vanilla tea were served in the black and white room. 


The tables were set with violet accents..of course!!

Christmas Past to ......PRESENT...for a friend.




When I found the red tinsel wreath  I knew just what I wanted to create.
The vintage felt ornaments I found in grab bags at my favorite thrift stores. 


I have been collecting what I thought was a vast array of vintage Christmas goodies for about 6 months.  Turns out not so vast.
I will be on the hunt for more goodies.
I love treasure hunting.


Once completed it is going to be a gift for a close friend.

Savannah and Robby's First Baby Shower


It all started with this darling vintage baby card.  Savannah and Robby loved the little elephant on top....so...vintage baby circus had to be the theme of their baby shower.


Last week was spent preparing for the shower.  Believe it or not I nearly talked the husband into a cotton candy machine.
And why not?
Makes total sense to me....wink..wink!!! 


Front Porch Area!

Cox Comb Harvest 2010


Last weeks freeze claimed many of my Cox Comb, this is what I had left.  This year we were surprised to have yellow Cox Combs...the combination was beautiful.

I was so excited to decorate my new cabinet for the holidays.  I had finished putting cute Halloween things around inside weeks ago...just had not gotten around to really doing much to the top.



For some reason my husband doesn't think I should be on a ladder with a broken hand.   So, this is it....the top of the cabinet.
Not what I had in mind...but it will have to do..that is until I find where Randy has hidden the ladder.



I Love Black Cats!!
My grandmother would drive completely out of her way to avoid them....truly...I drove her crazy.

Jack's Family Reunion

Skeleton Jack's Pumpkin Patch

Located at the base of our staircase.....
Skeleton Jack has set up a family reunion.
All are invited!


What a fine family Jack has.

If only these photos could talk.
Come back and visit anytime the reunion will last until the stroke of midnight on October 31st.
I waited until we got more batteries to take these photos, so that all my candles would be lite.  Not sure it made any difference.  I could not figure out how to take the photos so that the effect of the candles could be seen.
