Halloween Decor

I finally got some of my Halloween Decorations up, at least inside, I have yet to do the outside of my house. I LOVE Halloween, it's my very favorite holiday. Probably because it's in the Fall which is my favorite season as well. I used to love making costumes for the boys and taking them Trick-or-Treating. Now they are all grown up and just go off to their own Halloween activities. Oh well, such is life.

This is the fireplace in our living room, it's very basic and doesn't really have a mantle so I put this old mantle /shelf that I painted and added old ceiling tile to on top. It makes a nice backdrop for Holiday and seasonal decorating.

These pictures aren't the greatest, there is horrible light in this room.
It looks much better in person, and at night with the tea lites lit.

Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween!!

Until next time,

First Ever Blog

Here is my first ever blog. I'm pretty new to all this blog stuff. I just opened my first website and am still working out the bugs. I'm still trying to figure out how to get links on it and stuff like that, but it's going O.K. and I'm really learning a lot, even if it is the hard way by trial and error (LOL)

So for my first blog ever just let me say I'm very inspired by so many women that I have found by linking from one Blog to another and I hope to someday be as successful as they are .
Right now I work full time at my in laws business and have for the last four and a half years since closing my store. It's not really my bag, I'm stuck in an office most of the time and rarely get to to out at all during the day and I really miss the creativity of the store. So now I am trying to get going on the WWW and hope that if all goes well I can stay home and just create my things and make some money doing it.

So to end my first ever blog I will now attempt to download some pictures of my now closed little store to give you a sense of my style (and show some of the things I still need to get rid of).

Thanks for listening and hope you come again

Yay, it worked, but the pictures were supposed to be after the writing. Oh well, better luck next time. Bye
