  • Amazing pumpkin carvings!

    I have more Halloween stuff to share!!  Artist  Ray Villafane began carving pumpkins on a lark for his art students in a  small rural school district in Michigan. The hobby changed his life as he gained a viral following online and unlocked his genuine love of  sculpting. Here are images of pumpkin carvings Villafane created over  the past five years.                Now don’t these make you want to go carve a pumpkin?!?!?  (no me either… who can compete?!?!)

  • Halloween idea’s

    I love Halloween!  I think it’s my very favorite holiday.  So here are some cute decorating ideas with candy corn I took from Women’s Day. At this time of year, it seems candy corn does grow on trees. Pick a few clean-looking branches from your yard and hot-glue kernels onto them in clumps of twos and threes in various spots, concentrating on the ends and the Vs where the twigs branch off. Wedge the trunk of the branch into a small Styrofoam or floral square (available at crafts stores) and rest it in the base of a vase. Fill the vase to the brim with corn to cover the Styrofoam.…

  • Well, I think I’ve found the grown up Pigpen.  He works for our contractor.  Cause I have dirt everyWHERE!!  The room addition work has a thick layer of dust and dirt all over this house!  There is no point in cleaning because it just comes back with the arrival of the contractors.  UGH!!!  I can’t wait to be able to really clean this house!  (Okay that right there has to tell you how bad this house is!  I’m actually anxious to clean?!!??! Unless someone wants to come over and clean for me??)

  • Only in Montana!!

    A family that lives on the outskirts of Billings, Montana decided to build a sturdy, colorful playground for their 3- and 4-year-old sons. They lined the bottom with smooth-stone gravel all around to avoid knee scrapes and other injuries. They finished building it one Friday evening and were very pleased with the end product. The following morning, the mom was about to wake the boys up and have them go out to play in their new play center. This is what she saw from the upstairs window. This gives a whole new meaning to “If you build it, they will come”!  *
