Our Witches Cottage

Over the years, like every other season, I have slowly been
adding to my Halloween decorations and without even thinking
about it I usually buy or make something geared to the witch theme...:/
Not something ...until recently..that I have done deliberately.


I think she is trying too hard to be nice!  hahaha
  Sitting at the front entrance waiting for trick or treaters.






This was a frame I bought a long time ago and finally have a
use for it...holds a super good spell.



and a spider or two.




This is in our dining area, you know, the regular stuff..
spell book, spiders, eyeballs, rats ...






My daughter thought this should be the "sorting hat" 
I would have to agree. 




Our newest pet!  He's pretty tattered but he's cute.

I have found this beautiful source of inspiration!
and I am linking up for her Inspiration Friday
she has beautiful stuff and so do her guests!


Hope you enjoyed the pictures of our witches cottage,
and have a super day!

Working on Our Backyard


We bought our house a year ago, and everyday ...everyday I
have missed our yard that we had in Summerland.  It was lush
and private..so private I could sit in my pjs blog surfing all day and no one
would ever be the wiser....maybe a little lazy but really inspirational I loved those
 days. There were large mature trees, fruit trees and a huge
hedge that went all across the back.  Well, our home here is a new
 build so there was no garden, no grass ,trees or anything...on the up
side we got to do whatever we wanted (with in a budget) and make it ours.


This summer my husband and I, our daughters, friends and willing victims
got busy with us...thank-you sooo much ...we couldn't have done
it with out everyones help.



We knew that we had to plant a large tree in front
of the deck off the back of the house.  Hopefully  in a few years
 it will give us shade and  privacy.











We actually had to build a gabien wall along that far fence you
see in this picture and raise the level of soil up about
3 feet. These fence panels were from Rona on sale and
my daughter and I stained them tudor.  Then we rolled
out a ton of sod and a few plants were planted. 

Here are a few fall pictures..














Have a super day

What a Deal!!!




Found a super deal on these..


The glass hurricane lamps were 40 % off at The Bay.
So I think they ended up around $19 each.



These candles were on sale at Micheals for $2.99 ...they are nice and tall...
perfect for the hurricane.  I glued tissue paper to the candles to tone the
color down and promise to watch them when they are lite.



Mixed it up and... Voila!
I use these crystals a lot, they add just enough sparkle.



Our front door.




I just need some orange in or around the glass....
I guess I will just have to go to Micheals again.  ;)

Have a super day!
