Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #298

Messy Messy Fail - In my attempt to get a stain out of my sweater, I burned a hole in the sweater with bleach.  Had I checked the label I would have noted that only color-safe bleach should have been used.  Now to find a duplicate.  

Tidy Victory - The amount of random chores I have gotten done around this house is INCREDIBLE.  I'm not sure why, or even how, but MAN it feels good checking things off the list.  My favorite activity? Chucking gushy pumpkins out onto the hill for the deer to eat - heave HO!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #297

Messy Messy Fail -  I do enjoy being an independent person who can take care of things as necessary.  These including going to the dump with garbage and the recycling.  In my desire to be independent, I took the boys to the dump and had great success with the garbage.  The recycled paper, however, did end up flying all over the parking lot.  

Tidy Victory - I am soooooooo ready to get Christmas up but I am STAYING STRONG and holding out.  I just bought a couple new Christmas items from TJMaxx today to add to the decor for this year.  But I try to be smart and make decor purchases AFTER the holiday when they are discounted and to be used for the following year.  Why pay full price when you can get a discount?

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #296

Messy Messy Fail - Up until today we have had some sunny, not-so-cold fall weather.  Warm weather is not so good for pumpkins.  I guess we'll see how many random pumpkin vines we have growing around the house from the rotting pumpkins.  

Tidy Victory - All of the outside garden foolishness (a gargoyle, a bunny, several LED lights, etc.) have all been cleaned up and brought inside for the winter.  I didn't leave any elephant ears or cana lillies outside by accident like I did last year - now that's a first!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #295

Messy Messy Fail - I do not have a problem doing laundry nor do I have a problem folding laundry.  It's the putting away of the laundry that I find difficult.  No joke there are sometimes 4-5 laundry baskets of folded clothes that just sit because I don't put them away.  I feel saddened by this, yet I still do not put them away.  I've got problems.  

Tidy Victory - The camper (Bullet Betty!) has been completely emptied and is ready for the winter.  ALL fabric and food items must be removed and we put dryer sheets and Irish Spring soap EVERYWHERE to keep any visitors out during the winter.  Wish us luck!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #294

Messy Messy Fail - I am posting this party nearly a WEEK late.  You can still click on all of the link ups to see lots of great ideas though :D

Tidy Victory - We had a super successful Halloween over here at Starry Acres with decorations, pumpkin carving, and of course - trick-or-treating.  The boys scored BIG in the loot department so they were pretty stoked.  AND they were the best ever about manners - yay!

hih halloween

Happiness is Homemade 294

Happiness is Halloween - a special Halloween edition! I mean HELLO is there anything better than planning a few ghoulish surprises? The link ups from last week have not made the selection easy. Honestly so much spooky goodness to choose from.

Halloween Decor

Let's start off with a few Last Minute decor ideas from Hippie at Home. Easy and super thrifty last minute Halloween decorations can be ready in a flash but will look like they took all day to create.Such a cute display if you are looking for some last minute ideas.

Halloween Tablescape

Could we have a linkup with an awesome tablescape featured? I adore this Happy Halloween Vintage inspired table from Follow the Yellow Brick Home. She stated how much she enjoyed creating this vintage inspired “Happy Halloween” tablescape instead of a dark and scary one by using just a few Halloween decorations, some fall treats, and vintage treasures that work well for a Halloween-themed table.

Halloween Cocktail

Near and dear to my heart an awesome cocktail celebrating the All Hallow's Eve celebrations. With its deep dark red color from black cherry juice and grenadine, this Dracula's Blood Cocktail is simply perfect for Halloween sipping. Drop in some plastic vampire teeth to add to the Halloween cocktail fun!

Halloween Treats

Happy Halloween Cupcakes, Claire Justine has created the cutest Halloween Treat. She didn't stop with the Ghosts pictures here, she has created 9 fun Cupcakes that the children can help you with.

Puppy Power

I had to add a special treat in for this week. How cute is this Spooky Loofah Puppy Costume from Love my Little Cottage. One of the cutest internet dog costumes (in my opinion) is the dog loofa. I bought orange loofas and added a skeleton to make Hercules’ costume a Spooky Loofa Dog Halloween Costume.
