Good Morning!

Oh, what a beautiful morning!
The sun is shining ... and it's supposed to hit 90 degrees here today.

Hope it's lovely in your little corner of the world, too!

Feeling witchy!

I've been itching to make a witch for some time!
I finally gave into the urge ...
and wouldn't you know it,
as soon as I finished Matilda,
that silly witch hopped on my kitchen broom 
and flew to eBay!

Best witches,
♥ Vicki

Blame It On Pinterest

I blame this...

And this...

And this...

 ...on Pinterest !

You’ve heard of Pinterest
Of course you have!
It’s a fun social photo sharing site 
with lots of eye candy (pictures
that you arrange on virtual pinboards.
With Pinterest
gone are the days of tearing out magazine pages 
(of tips, recipes, decorating ideas, etc.
that you stuff in drawers or notebooks for future reference. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest!
My problem with Pinterest is that I want to do it ALL
Craft every project ... 
bake every cake ... 
decorate every room ... 
etc., etc., etc.

And that, my friends, is why I am the proud owner of a vintage gumball machine!
I saw this one on Pinterest and thought it was such a clever way to display buttons!

And, of course, I had to buy the darling little wooden frame pictured above
 ... it’s the perfect size to do this (I found this idea on Pinterest, too):

Have I hung my little frame yet? 
:::hanging my head in shame::: 
No! But it’s going to look sweet when I do!!

And the vintage white Christmas tree?
I wish you could have seen the look on hubby’s face when I told him I needed that!
But when ( and that’s the key word!! ) I decide to make a 6-foot tall snowman out of it, 
he’s going to be so impressed!!

 Do you think I need a Pintervention? 
Be honest with me.... 

Happy Weekend!

This is why I spent part of yesterday afternoon holed up in a closet underneath the stairs! This was one of over 10 tornadoes that touched down in Texas yesterday ... and it was only a few short miles from my home!! I'm happy to report that we didn't suffer any damage except for a case or two of frayed nerves. 

Many folks in neighboring cities, however, weren't so lucky. But, thankfully, no lives were lost as a result of the storm.

Counting my blessings,
