It's BOO Time


The time has come to get a little SPOOKY!


I like to put a little scary in every room.


Dinner anyone?


In case you forgot your ride home.



These eyes are watching YOU!


A little old, a little new.


Bones everywhere.


Time to have some fun.





WHO's scared now!

Father's Day is just around the corner.
A great idea I posted 3 years ago;Daddy's Day.
It is one of my most pinned projects.

My husband still has this with all his special gifts from the kids.

When a tie just won't do!



It is super easy and the kids loved making it for him.

To see the original post go here.

I hope all dads have a wonderful Father's Day!

Christmas For My Fireman

Christmas for My fireman.



I wanted to do a special tree for my husband in the garage.

My husband is a volunteer fireman.
He has been a fireman for 24 years.

We were both on vacation last week.
So one morning while Mr. slept in, 
I put together this tree for him.
I found the idea on Facebook.


The tree topper is an old helmet and the garland is fire hose.


The kids no longer play with the little fire truck.
It now decorates the garage with my husband's other fire man stuff.
As you can see we have plenty of fire extinguishers in case of an emergency.



Every fireman should have his own parking space!

Country Living Found Arbor House Lane on Pinterest



A pleasant surprise.
I found my living room mantel was highlighted here on Countryliving.

Creepy signage, bats, and rats are at the forefront of this gothic look. 
See more at Arbor House Lane.

This is the picture.

I found out accidentally while trying to show a co-worker some pictures of my home during Halloween.
 It was a pleasant surprise for sure!

If you did not already know, I kind of have a thing for Halloween!

I am getting excited to start bringing out the decorations soon. 
I hate to say.  
I only put out a little fall decorations,
a few pumpkins here and there.

I always start the beginning of September,
 thinking about if I am going to host a Halloween party.

I am tossing around the idea of a kids party.
The kids tell me it is their turn, since I had one for the parents last year.
I may have a few invitation ideas floating around in my head.

I know my skeletons are ready to come out of the closet.

I have not posted very much lately, work and busy with life.
Now that both are slowing down some.
 I am hoping to share the projects and finds of the summer.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

All Done In White



The only thing that was 
NOT 
on my to-do list.
Paint the kitchen.
But
That is exactly what I started last weekend.

I have finally painted the kitchen WHITE!
After 17 years of the green.
I convinced Mr. M. that it was OK to go white in the kitchen too.
He likes it.
YEAH!
The room seems brighter now.




Early morning in the sunshine.
I still have plates and paintings to hang on the walls.
So far, I love the change.





As you can see I chose an off white for the walls and bright white for the trim.
I have the same color white for all the trim in the house.


I love how my antique white furniture look against the new wall color.







I decided to take out the faux mantel and we will turn it into a shelf to hang under the mirror.


We have started looking for the granite for the counter top and tile for the back splash.
It will basically look like the picture below.
Except I have cherry cabinets on the bottom and distressed white on top.

We only have a small area that we would have to replace.
The cost will be minimal. 
Our large work area in the kitchen is the island.

As much as I would love to have white marble, 
it really would not go well with all the colors in the room.

Once the kitchen is done I will start painting my way up to the third floor.
After so many years the trim needs a fresh coat of paint.

Hopefully by the time I finish painting the weather will be warm.
I know the weeds need to be taken care of.



I am ready for Spring!
