Zombies, Pumpkins and Parlez-Vous Fran├žais?


These are the zombie hands I ordered on clearance after Halloween last year.  They came from Party City.  I'm really pleased with the look and quality.  We set up a little zombie grave yard next to our fire pit for my daughter's birthday party.

Also, if you speak  (and read) French, my Painted Pumpkins were featured at La Presse, a French Canadian paper which you can see HERE .  But everything is in French.  Except our blog name :)

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!  We are supposed to have severe storms around here and many towns are postponing celebrations until Friday.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini House Tour

I've been wanting to post a house tour for some time.  Since most of my house was clean at the same time, I decided to take some pictures today.  We had a 21st birthday party for my daughter this weekend.  I missed a couple of rooms, and the sun was setting.  But I decided to go for it anyway :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Odds and Ends in Pictures

I've taken random pictures but not enough for an individual post.  Before I completely forget about them, I thought I would just post several of them here.

 I've added a few things to the bathroom walls.

 I used some of the Amy Howard one step paint to jazz up a dresser I had painted with the Annie Sloan chalk paint in country grey.  I left the drawers in the country grey and painted the rest of it with the Amy Howard paint


I painted a sign using this lovely lady for inspiration.  My husband made the sign with old Alabama barn wood we had. 

Pam and I went to the City Farmhouse Pop Up Barn sale last weekend.  I was so happy to meet up with this fabulous blogger.  I was also excited to see that Lulu was there selling Amy Howard paints and products.  I bought the black one step paint and the Dust of Ages powder.  I'll show what I did with that a little bit later.

My first born turns 21 next Tuesday but we are celebrating this weekend when she makes a quick trip home from college.  So, I'll be party planning the next few days. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
