Antiqued Skeleton Bones – Using Acrylic Paints

Happy Friday my friends - Just one last spooky project to share before the tricks and treats begin. One of the projects on my fall to-do was a set of the popular glitter skeleton parts see around this year. I really thought it would be a fun project to get my little helper to help me with, though after a few hours of playing with the 'sprinkles' {as my little guy calls them} most of containers seemed to have disappear...like right into the carpet disappear - To say we had glitter everywhere is a complete under statement}.

Super Easy Treats for My Simple Halloween Dessert Table – My Tuesday {ten} No.20

For this week's Tuesday {ten} I thought I would share some super simple ideas I used to put together this Halloween dessert table a couple of weeks ago. Since my little guy has been taken off of food it really has been a struggle for me to even think of any kind of tasty treat. The thrill I used to have putting together parties isn't quite the same, though food is such a social part of society, it is kind of hard hosting a gathering without incorporating it some how. So despite what it may seem, this table was incredibly easy to put together Continue reading

I love breaking out the slow cooker this time of year to 'fix and forget' some warm comfort meals.

I really like the idea of having a nice warm dessert already cooking and ready to go without spending any additional time away from guests during a dinner party.
