One of my favorite parts of my Halloween party was the signs I made--which I haven't shared yet, until now.  I had several pieces of this old very rustic wood, and I knew I wanted to do something with it.  I wasn't sure what since I didn't have a whole lot of it. … [Read more...]

So technically this is the back porch, but it's MY front porch (the weirdness that comes with living in a basement apartment.)  So probably no trick-or-treaters will be coming to the back porch, but it's still fun to be able to decorate.  And I was given lots of Command hooks to use, so check out my Halloween front porch decor! Command hooks really are the easiest way to decorate your house for the holidays (inside AND out, but especially … [Read more...]
