This past week was full of fun Halloween activiites. I am honestly surprised my kids haven’t fallen into a candy coma with all the chocolate peanut butter cups they’ve consumed over the past week.
I love soup! We’re currently experiencing some very chilly weather here in Maryland and this Creamy Gnocchi Soup from Halfbaked Harvest, looks and sounds absolutely perfect for this time of year. It is on my “must make list”.
Check out this man who discovered a secret passage way hidden in his library. This folks is what dreams are made of!
I enjoy rehabbing old furniture or upcycling old pieces for new purpopses. I am always facinated by Ikea Hacks. This one is so simple. An Ikea KALLAX is transformed into a show stopper!
May we take a moment to appreciate this tile. I need a backsplash in my kitchen and I LOVE this tile, but it’s pricey. Way more than I would want to spend. BUT it’s also handmade. The kitchen is the FOCAL point of my home and I REALLY love this tile. I like this tile so much I actually went and measured my kitchen to determine exactly what the square footage is. Me, being me. My initial calculations were wrong, but I sorted my maths out and I would only need three boxes and that is with a LOT of overage. It’s still about $300 more than I want to spend. I have a special talent of being able to pick out the MOST expensive stuff. It’s a gift, really.
I really love Old Navy’s Oversized tunic sweatshirts. They had me at oversized and tunic, to be honest.
Do you have kids who love to craft or get creative. This Creativity Tub by Crayola has all the things. Santa is going to bring my daughter Ellena one for Christmas. You can bet your Elf on the Shelf on that one!
I need a new pair of slippers. These Mocs by UGG are on my wish list.
Looking for something new to read? Here are some book reviews for you to peruse on Literary Hub.
I try to support Indie Authors whenever I can. This series by Bianca Scardoni I discovered I dunno, maybe two years ago on Amazon Unlimted, I put down my current read to start the latest installment (book 7.) If you enjoy paranormal romance, (it is tagged YA, but I think that’s only because the main character is high school) then you may enjoy this. Honestly, the main character gets on my nerves a lot, but at this point, I need to know how the story ends. I’m committed.
Pride and Predjudice fans, here’s a list of movies you may like. I’ve seen several of them and I concur.
Do you freak out every time you pick up a pen to write at the state of your penmanship? You may enjoy this article on how to improve your handwriting. At the very least, the images featuring all that pretty and neat handwriting are a soothing balm for your soul. (Or is that just me?)
Last night I made garlands made from dehydrated oranges. I’m currently dehydrating some more because ladies and gentlemen I am hooked. Our Ninja Foodie Pro makes it EASY work. Plus it looks nice on my counter.
I hope you are well.
I’m praying for you!
