13 days mantle

It’s already been established that the Newman’s love Halloween, so we thought we would share some of our love of fright with all of you! Ever since my girls were little we have done a countdown to Halloween, it lasts for 13 days and ends with Jack the Pumpkin King stopping by for a visit on All Hallows Eve.


A Bouquet of Newly Sharpened Pencils

1 Bouquet of pencils

It’s that time of year again, Back-To-School time. All the little kiddos in my neck of the woods filled their backpacks and bags full of fresh school supplies and headed back to school last week. The thought of fresh school supplies made me think of the line in one of my favorite movies, “You’ve Got Mail”.


Yankee Doodle Decor

July 4th chalk art

Yankee Doodle is on his way and for once I did a little decorating. The 4th is usually here and gone by the time I come up with any patriotic decor, but not this year. This year I actually got my front entry “holiday closet” decked out in some red, white and blue. I started by changing my revolving chalkboard to a July 4th design.

I then printed out my “Oh say” printable (the one I posted earlier this week) and put it in a funky frame I bought at Hobby Lobby last December, but first I gave it a coat of bright, red glossy paint (hey, red will work at Christmas time as well).

I bought some Mason Jars a few weeks back with plans of painting them. Pinterest is jam packed with painted mason jars so I decided to give it a try. I had bought silver metallic spray paint for an earlier project and luckily it adhered to glass. Bada bing, bada boom. I popped some American flags inside the jar.

I then gathered up some patriotic odds and ends from around the house. I found the three red, white and blue striped horns at a tiny antique shop in Georgetown, Texas, I wish I had bought more. The square glass container is holding yarn spools. The red ones actually have gold stars on them. They were the only things I could afford at the Round Top Antique Show in Texas several years back. They work pretty well as Halloween decor also.

I have a feeling this will probably stay up for the rest of the summer. I’m sure I’ll be to lazy to change it so I guess it will be a patriotic couple of months.

Patriotic Printable

Monday, June 24th, 2013

So I’ve been MIA for the last week, just didn’t have any creative juices flowing I guess. But I was feeling patriotic last night and put this little ditty together for your decorating enjoyment. I’m kinda proud that I’m getting this posted before the 3rd of July because I am Miss Last Minute you know. Oh, and I do know how to spell the word “through” but when I Googled “The Star Spangled Banner” that’s how it was spelled “thru”. And here I thought that spelling was just invented around the same time as texting. And once again, I pledge to get this blog up to date… speaking of pledging, I should have done “The Pledge of Allegiance” maybe I’ll work on that tonight. Stay tuned…
