Five On Friday


A talented artist, Lucy @ Craftberry Bush dreams in color and I'm taken with what she's dreamed up for the rest of us. Her terrific post, A Show Called Fall, teaches us how we can tailor make these beautiful, decorative, paper mache Fall leaves to brighten and enhance arrangements, place settings and any environment.


Give me some creepy, creamy, really yummy Monster Eyeballs on a pick this Halloween! Kathryn @ Bee In Our Bonnet shares how she turned purchased frozen mini-cream puffs into this fun treat in three easy steps. I got the makings today for my little spooks tomorrow!


In need of a soft glow for your party decor? Daisy Day @ It's a Daisy Day! realized she needed to get busy. One can't help but love her Super Fast Phone Book Luminaries. These are unbelievable easy and inexpensive. Just think on Monday, (yes November 1st), we can tear out of few more pages, change the verbiage and enjoy them all month long.


Here's a great idea if you're wondering what to do with all of that Halloween candy. Jen @ My Delicious Ambiguity suggests a brilliant plan. She's invited The Switch Witch over on Halloween night and the only one who may object is her family dentist! It's actually all about moderation, why not stretch those treats out over a few healthier months.


I fell hard this week when I saw, Fresh Cut Flower Boxes. I'm so loving Allison Anderson's airy design, choice of extraordinary fabrics...

and her flowery machine quilting. It's backed with a soft sage minkee and ready to keep her warm all winter long. It would keep me happy too...oh, adoring these pretty colors! Meet this gifted quilter @ her blog, Strandz.

Have and inspired weekend all!

  6. That quilt is gorgeous, and I love the idea of the cosy backing.
    We won't get a singe trick or treater because we live on a dark rural road, at the end of a long dark drive. This is the first year I haven't gone out and bought sweets 'just in case' - well, I haven't bought them yet!

  7. Thanks so much for including my quilt. Your blog is beautiful--I'll be stalking you now!

  8. Fun post. You always make it so cute and I love to see what you feature.

    I read your comments on Joni's blog about the witch shoes for YW. I saw them and had to make one too (in purple of course). So cute. It's a small blog world after all!
