Halloween discount find

           I saw this cute skeleton butler and maid at Zgallerie, price wasn't so bad for $15 each, but, like anyone, I haunted, I mean hunted for a cheaper version.  And as luck would have it, I found the exact similar one in BIGLOTS for $7 !!!! Thats $8 more in my pocket! Yehey!

Happy Halloween decorating!!

Halloween Mania

Ever since I came to the US, Halloween has always been a favorite in our household. I mean, we don't even decorate anymore for fall or thanksgiving! It's halloween then Christmas. As soon as September hits, all my halloween paraphernalia are out! And I decorate little by little.

I mean, what's not to love? Candies, cute kids in costumes (even sometimes, adult look kinda cute too, although most of the time, they kinda look ...aamm, ummm) and of course the goulishly fun decor.

So in honor of this beloved celebration, I've compiled some of my favorites that I have collected in my Pinterest board. 

THE DOORWAY - this one is oh so halloween chic! Very simple and easy to imitate, it beckons anyone who come to go in if they dare!


These 2 wreaths are fun and easy DIY projects anyone can do - glue in some googly eyes or pin some black party streamers to a wreath and viol! instant Halloween vibe for your door!


THE ENTRY - this is epitomizes the making of a great Halloween entry. Simple,  doable without spening big buck and best of all, easy to imitate!


THE STAIRS - if your fortunate enough to own a staircase, don't miss out on decorating this spot. This stairway is very chic, hauntingly stylish and easy to clean-up! If you happen to own a pumpkin patch, this is the decor for you! Spray away girl!

THE MANTLE - again, if your fortunate to have this at your home, definitely "a must" spot for Halloween decorating. The 1st example is more to adult liking - spookily gorgeous. The 2nd one is for your  little kiddies delight.

THE TABLE (I mean Party table) - this is where you can go all out, because of all the beautiful candies available, decorating a party table or treat table is oh so fun!!! Bring out your candy jar and start filling them in!
And don't forget your drinks, little ones might be a little thirsty by the time they reach your doorstep.

Oh, and one last thing... the most important of all... THE CANDIES!!!!!



I am in the midst of still completing my own decor, and will post it as soon as I have everything in place.    
Have a fun and safe Halloween everyone!

        I went to my local "Hobby Lobby" to return something, and being the shopper that I am, I scoured around the store for some great deals, and lo and behold I found these...


         They are ceramic letter knobs on CLEARANCE (ding!ding!ding!) for $1.36 each + another 50% discount (ding!ding!ding!) = 0.67 cents each O(ka-ching!)!!! I grabbed 6 and I'm already pondering on my next DIY project.

         I'm thinking something for my kids room or for my own! So excited because they are beautiful and usually expensive! I will post my project once I get to it!

Welcome to Me!!!!

Finally, after months of contemplating, I am launching my very own blog!!!!!

Woohoo! Yippee!!! Wooppeedooo!! Hurrah!!! Hurray!!! Mabuhay!!!!

I'm really not sure what I want to accomplish or do with this thing, but what I know for sure is that I want this to be like an online journal of my thoughts, ideas ( lots of online photos for sure), and everything I love ( or maybe not so much love) about my life ( and others).  I know someday, when my kids are old enough ( or interested enough)

Loves of my life - yes, including Woody and Buzz :-)

there's a possibility that they'll read this. And so, I want them to know that their mom was not just "a Mom" or a "honey" to their dad, or a "Dr. Criste" to her patients, but also her own person, with lots of zest for life, strong interests (and obsessions on home decorating) and most of all, I hope this blog will be a manifesto of what I hope, will be a continually good, happy and blessed life!!!!!!

Wish me luck!!!!!!!
