Mantel {FALL} Makeover

IMG_4589 Even though FALL is NOT in the air this week (82 today). I decided it was time to do a Mantel Makeover to celebrate my FAV season. This makeover only cost me $6. for the Halloween banner, everything else, I already had!! My fav part of the whole mantel is the Candy Pumpkin Tree that Jack and I made this afternoon, with left over candy, pumpkin candy corn that he had to have! (and didn’t like, did I mention during the melt down in Wally he had “needing” the afore mentioned candy corn, I told him he wouldn’t like it!!) Branches we collected in the yard and some festive ribbon I had on hand.  Cute, don’t ya think?

IMG_4591 Hubs suggested I make an apple necklace for the deer. I may just take that challenge. Any suggestions?

Are you doing any FALL/Harvest/ Halloween Makeovers?

Happy Home

I had to share this great idea that I saw via Roots & Wings, via SugarDoodle, via  Chicken Babies who is the ORIGINAL creator of the Happy House.

How cute is this?  I love the idea of sharing with your children how building each other up is a great thing. Jack just turned 3 and the MIL gave Hubs all his old legos! What a perfect time to build our own Happy House!

I am sharing this with everyone I know! In fact I think it would be a great thing to do with j’s class. I really feel like showing them the concept of what a finished product looks like and then breaking it down and allow them to build it back up by building up their friends, using their manners, being good listeners, sharing, all great ways for them to learn. I just LOVE it!! I think I will make something fun for them next week. Hum? What to build that boys and girls will get excited about? I will have to think…. Will re-post with the school one next week.

Have a great week/end Labor Day! We are heading to the BEACH!! Praying Earl doesn’t wreck havoc.
