Are you a Good Witch, Bad Witch or maybe a little wicked?

The Bad Witch, Good Witch and wicked necklaces are so fun, not just for Halloween but all year long.  All components are sterling silver and hand stamped, and come with a cute little sterling silver Witch charm flying on a broom.  You can find them here.

Which one would you pick?

Do you like to decorate for...

I happen to love Halloween, I love all of the orange and black and especially the cute pumpkins. Some of my neighbors already have their decorations up, I usually wait until October 1st.

Do you decorate for Halloween and do you like Halloween?

P.S. Aren't these Witch Hat cookies adorable? I think I am going to make these for my sons class.

FEED Trick-or-Treat Bag

I love when my purchase benefits a good cause. The FEED Trick-or Treat bag is a limited-edition bag just perfect for gobbling up some yummy treats this Halloween but it also provides one child in the developing world with a years supply of micronutrient powders. You can find the bag at a few online stores but Garnet Hill has it for $12.95 with Free Shipping. Get it HERE.

I ordered one today and plan on using it as a tote the entire month of October.

Meckley's Flavor Fruit Farm

We visited Meckley's Flavor Fruit Farm and had some yummy treats, this year they had pumpkin donuts with cream cheese frosting and they were simply deliecious. I love this time of year because it means the Cider Mills are open!

Have you been to the Cider Mill yet?

I am a Soccer Mom....

Soccer season is in full swing, we had our first game yesterday! The league all got new uniforms and numbers so the kids were especially excited about that. And now since Will said he is sticking with Soccer I guess I am now a Soccer Mom, minus the mini van! Are you a Soccer Mom, Hockey Mom, Football Mom?????

I thought the Soccer Mom necklace would be a fun necklace to add to my shop, the charm can be customized with the players number and can have other things stamped too, such as Hockey Mom, Dance Mom, Swim Mom. You can find the Soccer Mom necklace HERE.

Happy Monday friends.... I am missing my little guy so much today!

You Capture: Back to School

Today was the first day of Kindergarten for Will. It is so bittersweet as I am sad to have him gone all day but so excited for him to learn new things. He is such a sweet, inquisitive little boy and I hope he always stays that way.

When he came out of class I asked him how he liked it and he said he loved it! He loves his new teacher, likes that he has a desk of his own and a special hook with his name on it for his back pack.... it is the little things isn't it? I hope he continues to enjoy it!

You Capture: Peace

Is there anything more peaceful than a sunrise like this? There is something magical about the start of a new morning, kinda like a redo.
