Trick or Tweet

This year, the Hubby and I decided to dress up as "social networking" icons. I was the "Twitter Bird" and he was "Facebook." (We stole the Facebook idea from "The Office"). The Twitter costume was completely original and we created it in only 2 hours!
This was by far, the funnest Halloween ever. I really don't know how we're going to top this next year. When we got home, I asked Dustin where I should store the costume. His reply was, "The Halloween Hall of Fame." And that is exactly where it will go.

Happy Halloween to all!

Apple Works - Part 4

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! Every October should include a romp around the pumpkin patch. It just wouldn't be Halloween without one.Here's my Hubby with our pick for this year. It's a fat and squatty pumpkin. We try to pick one with character and this definitely has that and will be a fun one to carve.
Our friend's eldest daughter with her pick. Of course, she changed her mind several times and this wasn't the pumpkin that went home with her and her family.Their little guy decided a pumpkin was a perfect seat, especially after walking around the patch all morning.
And their middle little one just loved taking it all in and watching all of us run around the patch looking for the perfect pumpkin.

Apple Works - Part 2

I think my most favorite part about the Fall are the many colors of leaves that are all over the place. It's amazing how everything goes from green to shades of yellow, orange and red.

Apple Works - Part 1

A couple of weekends ago we made our annual Fall trip to Apple Works and we had a blast. We went with our wonderful friends, Don and Aimee and their three beautiful children. I took tons of photos and since there are so many, I thought I would share a few over the next few days.Look at this turkey! This was the first time I've ever seen a turkey all puffed up like this. Gobble! Gobble!I so want to make one of these adorable "pumpkin dolls." Doesn't it just look happy and festive?

Loving Love

My mom and I were talking the other day about how beautiful Amy Butler's Love is and she said, "Sarah, we must have it." I then told her that Clementine's was selling all 26 color ways in 2 bundles of fat quarters (13 each) and I really wanted them.
Again, my mom said, "Sarah, we must have them." And again, I agreed. So she gave me her credit card info and told me to buy 2 bundles for each of us. And so I did. And now I am very, very happy and she is very, very happy. Sigh. It's just so beautiful.

Sewing Notions

Over the summer, the Hubby and I went to many a yard sale and one of the main things I kept my eye out for were sewing notions, especially vintage notions...ya know, wooden spools of thread and such. Thankfully, I found sewing notions, fabric, buttons, and ribbons at every sale we went to. And here is one of my favorites. It's a fabulous box with lovely little drawers filled with treasure. These kinds of things just make me happy.
I want to do something fun and crafty with this old tape measure. Anyone have any ideas or seen anything out there in blog world that I could check out?
