Wednesday’s Wowzers: Nap Time!


I can relax just a little bit.  The toddlers' Halloween party just ended.  It was a HUGE success!  We played tons of fun games, I shot way too many pictures, and everyone ate plenty of sugar!  I cleaned up the house, vacuumed a tremendous amount of frosting and sprinkles from my kitchen floor, tossed a few suspicious-looking candy corn, and I am now ready for a nap.

Here is my version of relaxation:  Snuggling on the couch, watching our first Colorado snow storm, wrapped in a blanket.  Reading some inspiring blogs and pinning my heart out on Pinterest!

And wow. wow. wow.  Here is what I've found to share with you today:


I {heart} this fall leaf garland.  Literally 🙂 Isn't it sweet and simple?!  I found this at the letter 4.!  How cute are these costumes:  It's Curious George and the Man With the Yellow Hat!  Absolutely darling.  Kirstin from Kojo Designs is simply a genius.

I LOVE Lolly Jane's new children's portrait wall.  Aren't those picture frames adorable?! And I LOVE their tip for using a pop can tab to hang the pictures!  Smart.

You are going to die at how cute this Cars party is!   You'll have to check out the entire post, but here are a few things I loved:   They used license plates as labels and as invitations.  And they made Rice Krispies treats into the shapes of construction cones and placed them in an air filter.   See all the details at Paisley Petal Events.

I am LOVING reclaimed wood art.  And the Shanty 2 Chic girls did an amazing job with this one.  I am taking notes...

Scrabble wall art is HOT right now!  Attempting Aloha created this beautiful Scrabble wall art for her kids' room.

Is it too soon for a Christmas teaser??

I just stumbled upon this no-sew ruffled tree skirt on Pinterest and fell in love!  Love the combination of burlap and linen that the Johnston's used.  Amazing!

What are you working on lately?
