Well we have officially started to put up Christmas Decorations.  Since I am going to Kentucky Thursday and won’t be back until Saturday, I decided I should probably get a start on it. 

Growing up Christmas was always a big deal in our house.  Mom would set everything up.  She can’t do as much now because she has Multiple Sclerosis, and has limited mobility.  She shuffles around the house still, so we are glad that as of right now she can still kind of walk.  But she can’t go up the steps into the attic to get Christmas down.  She still enjoys Christmas, but we have considerably less decorations than before.

I really had to laugh the other night when I was up late watching tv.  Peanut, my miniature schnauzer who exudes more personality than someone on tv, was sleeping next to me.  I was sitting on my bed, watching Titanic.  He looks up, and then looks at me and sighs.  After that he moved over so that he could lay his head on my pillow.  It was as if he was like, “well if you aren’t going to use this pillow…. I will.”



Also really quick before you go.  Don’t forget to stop by my Etsy Shop and take a look at the earrings I have for sale.  If you enter the code Turkey20 at checkout you can take an additional 20% off.  Hurry, because that code won’t last long!

I'm getting ready to patch another pair of jeans... this pair has two large holes.  One in each leg.  No worries, I have enough material to get the job done.  

Pic to come when the patching is complete.

My best friend gave me some jeans a while back. They have huge holes in the thighs, which never bothered her because she is a runner.

It took me a while but I found some fabric I like and I'm going to patch these holes. I will let you know how it goes.

Fall can be a super pretty time of the year. In fact I got a little inspired by the falling leaves. I added a few new pairs of earrings to my Etsy store. Check it out!

Amazing. I completely forgot that I had this awesome product.  It is the Too Faced Liquif-Eye, and it turns any eye shadow into an eye liner.  So this morning I was trying to use the liquid liner I already had, and was hating.  After a little digging I pulled this out of my make-up drawer, and used it with Laura Geller's Eye Rimz.

I just got done reading a really great book.  It was pretty cool.  It was about this college student who is has to work on this super important paper.  During the summer she goes to her Grandmother's house to start cleaning it out so that her mom can sell it.  After that it starts getting really interesting.  The main character is on the hunt for a book that belonged to someone that was hung during the Salem Witch Trials, and discovers some amazing things about herself and her family along the way. 

This book is a definite must read and will be staying put on my bookshelf!  Also, a neat little tidbit about the author.  She is a decent of Elizabeth Howe, who was one of the accused during the Salem witch trials.  She was found guilty and hung in 1692.

For some reason I thought I would definately be able to finish reading the Zombie Survival Guide.  I thought it would be humorous and witty.  Well, it was the opposite.  It was dull and read more like a boring intruction manual. 

I guess this means I will not survive the Zombie Apocalypse.  Well.... maybe I will.  I did read half.

Do you remember how last week I bought a pair of earrings, and then I said I bought a earring making kit to make a pair of Peacock feather earrings for myself.  Well... the kit made 5 pairs.   I made one for me, and gave a pair to my best friend.  The remaining 3 have been listed on Etsy, and are currently up for sale.  Check it out!!
