Happy Halloween! 
for us! We're getting our Halloween-ing 
on tonight by watching old horror movies & passing out
halloween candy to all the little ones.

& I love that even our faux deer head is
 'repping the Halloween apparel..
& I made this little treat for the hubs 
for when he came home from work.

happy halloween.

We're focusing our girl's efforts on personal progress,
So here's what we're trying... perhaps its a little bribery?
it's worth a try though, we filled jars with candy
once a girl complete a lesson they get a candy
easy as that.

just adhere them to the label with glue or glue dots.

this rainy cloud weather is KILLING me,
I cant get a decent photo to save my life! But, today
I'm sharing these thrift finds for our basement.

$20= avocado & gold lamp  + navy crush velvet tufted chair
I of course painted the lamp white.
hello awesome deal.

phew, it's going to look like christmas on my porch
I just ordered these products for our computer "niche"
but niche I really just mean its an awkward area that will be used 
to keep our IMac that we scored off a local area craiglist.

since our computer niche is in the basement
where apparently is suppose to be a "man's cave" space
I wanted a touch masculine but also a little modern & clean.
there's hardly any light down there so I'm trying to keep the space fresh & open.
more photos coming soon

okay yeah & I also have a color white fetish, i know.
