Hope everyone has there CANDY & COSTUME ready as HALLOWEEN is tomorrow!!!!
My daughter has made us a new manner and wanted to share!

 You've got your costume, your candy bowl's full, your pumpkin's carved, you think that you're ready for Halloween. But...have you ever wonder if your picking the best items that the kids will like, well check out the list below.



Chocolate is clearly the preferred choice of sweets for many. Of the 1.9 billion sold in Halloween candy each year, $1.2 billion was on chocolate candy and only $680 million on sugar candy.

Halloween Dinning room

Hope everyone is enjoying this cool fall weather.
Halloween is Monday and I did not want to miss
posting my table in the dinning room.
 I also changed out the China Hutch.

A bright yellow tablecloth was  super find
 for $2.00 at a thrift shop.
 I then added the black chargers, yellow Fiesta Plates.
Next came the Black and White Pattern
Tom Thumb clearance plates.

 This was topped with jack-o-lantern bowls for Kohl's last year.
Polk-a-dotted napkins are from, HL. The Halloween napkins have been around awhile.
Serving bowl and matching pitcher were a
 Target find several years ago.

 Ghostly Candle Holders one of my first Halloween purchases. Glasses -Garden Ridge Cups & Saucers --Cracker Barrel

Pumpkins & Candy Corn

Hell-o to everyone. What a change in the weather from last week. It is "63" and we actually had RAiN today! I even had a 3 year old
 at church today beg me to take him out to see the RAiN. He wouldn't even wait for his Dad to take him outside. He squealed and put his hand out to fill the RAiN.   When I say rain I mean we have puddles of water and water running in the gutters. I live by a small lake and we were beginning to wonder if  our lake might get so low that boats weren't going to be allowed on the lake. OK TEXAS got RAiN, enough .

It really is feeling like fall and when I decorate for fall I wanted to do something different in our living are. I saw several using candy corn in there candle holder so I gave it a try. I also found in my fall binds candy corn candles. I had picked up the candy corn bowls recently so as my daughter named it is the Candy Corn Table.

In the middle of candle holders are cloth pumkins that my daughter I have collected. A friend begin to makes these for craft shows about 10 years ago and we try to purchase one or two each year. They are not the ordinary colors and patterns.

A closer look at the pumpkins. It is so exciting to see what fabric she has every year.

The table sets in front of our fire place a few more the pumkins are there.(oops who left that bag there). You can see a closer look by going back to my header.

Before i say goodby I want to show off a couple of the photo's from
my daughter engagment photo's.
 She and Jeff will be married in March.

So much for the two hours of make-up and hair! 

Yes our family is in  morning due to the big lost Saturday.<;(
