Blythes, Puppies and Baking, Oh My!

Coco's totally getting into the Halloween mood.
She's thinking about costumes.

This cute little guy is Smoky, he stopped by for a quick visit.
He's super sweet and adorable.
I wish I could keep him!

I found a yummy recipe on Pinterest.
So easy: 1 box of yellow cake mix
1 can  pumpkin
Blend together
Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

The bread came out super moist and very delish.
I already went out and bought supplies to bake more yummy goodness!
All in all it was a nice weekend.

Monday Pretties....

I love these colors and the detail in the door frame.

The detail in these bowls are super pretty.

I'm loving this color combo! In case you hadn't noticed.

Ok not part of the color combo but this is too precious to not share.

Such a sweet bouquet!

Somebody Can't Wait for Halloween....



Actually we're both pretty excited for Halloween.
We were checking out the Halloween goodies at the 99 cents store yesterday.
We found these cute glasses. The bat wing glasses my sister purchased.
I got the pumpkin glasses for the little brother.

Monday Pretties....

Some DIY tutorials are part of my Monday Pretties this week.

Mini lights hung from a rod in the window. Awesome idea especially for the
 fall/winter when it gets dark early.

Great idea in case you run out of Mod Podge or just if you want to save money.

Such an interesting project! I need to go thrifting!

Great for yarn scraps!
Neat idea for your crafty work space!

Double Rainbow!



The colors in the sky were awesome on Sunday evening.
I couldn't run in fast enough to grab the good camera.
But I had to get some kind of evidence of the double rainbow.
Then big fat rain drops started to fall from the sky.

Okay finally the last of it....







I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

In The Sun more prompts





My Element prompts.
I didn't center my Wind prompt well.
But was way too tired last night to rescan.
Delerium got the best of me.
