Hi guys!!!! Life has been so crazy that I have not been able to even log on. So today is Sunday and a good day to relax and do some blogging. Here are my newest halloween decoration finds. I got the cute witches hat and pumpkin picture at a harvest boutique. The hat matches perfectly with the witch shoe I got last year. I was so excited when I realized they were a pair. Here is a full view of the shelf and how it works together.

I also got this cute pumpkin. My house is so full of Halloween I only buy what I fall in love with. And this year there were so many cute things.

And here is my favorite. She is a handmade witch, and sooo cute. here name is Glendora

This is my front porch all decorated for Halloween. I love Halloween and my Birthday is in October so I collect alot of decorations I get for my Birthday.

Here is a view of my front entrance.

This is my front porch all decked out. I love Fall.

Here is a view from my side yard. I woke up this morning and the mountains were on fire with so much color, so I just had to share.

As this time of year comes around everyone gets so busy with holiday activities. So I will be posting a little less then normal. Work, kids activities and life sometimes takes over. Love J

Kitchen Tour

I have been looking around trying to make up my mind on kitchen ideas. We had to put off the renovation for a few months because we are in the construction industry. Things have hit hard the last year. I hope things get better soon. Anyway it has given me time to really weigh my choices. My SIL is great at painting furniture. And I think I will have him refinish my cabinets. They are only 11 years old and in great shape. I also think I will have cement counter tops. I have seen some that look very rustic. soooo cute. Anyway my SIL friend has refinished his cabinets and here are the pictures of his kitchen. These are wood floors that he glazed black. There are several colors underneath and he distressed so the colors would show through.

I love the cream glaeze he used.

A close-up at the distress work.

Anyway let me know what you think. I dont think I would like this much distress but the idea is there of what I want. Anyway hope you enjoyed the tour. Love J
