White and Gold Decoupage Pumpkins

white and gold decoupage pumpkins

I'll never forget that dress...It was gold and white lamé checked with a black velvet bodice.  The perfect 1987 homecoming dress.  The black velvet bow I found for my hair was the icing on the cake. Lamé...do they even make dresses in lamé anymore.... because they should!  The subtle (or not so subtle) sheen picked up the pulsating lights on the dance floor perfectly. … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti with an Apple Cider Icing

Recently I've realized something very important about pumpkin flavored things. People either love them or hate them. There seems to be no in-between here.

I'm not even sure if I noticed the colorful foliage before the leaves shed, but I do remember having a plan to rake the entire yard by myself. I remember raking so long that blisters developed on my little hands, and my dreams … [Read more...]

My husband and I have recently discovered the miracle that is Netflix. Yes, we are slow to integrate new things into our home. Don't judge. So far we have finished the first season of Blacklist (the 2nd season just premiered!!!) and last week we finished watching the first season of 24. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I really wanted to throw a pillow across the room when we finally made it to the last episode of 24. If you haven't watched it just know that if you feel like throwing … [Read more...]
