|My mom's special mini pecan pies|
(made with pecans from our tree in the backyard)
|Candy cane stripes and smiling snowmen - what a welcoming wreath|
|A stunning way to greet family and friends!|
|Sparkle and shine, along with some greenery really dress up the mantel|
|Children & Christmas go together like milk and cookies - oh so sweet!|
|Even the puppy gets the red treatment with a fun and simple collar.|
|A cozy cable knit sweater is a must have for those crisp fall days!!!|
|Casually elegant and easy to wear: what a great combination.|

|As the temperature dips and the leaves change color,|
it's time to bring out that big, warm and comfortable sweater.
|These socks are perfect to relax in and enjoy Sunday brunch....|
|I love the contrast of the raspberry color paired with this chunky knit throw!|
|I adore this heavy Ralph Lauren sweater. It would be a perfect gift for my son! |
I love that a cable knit sweater can be both very masculine and chic, but homey all at the same time.
|How simply perfect is her outfit?!?|
|Bright red, intricate and so gorgeous!|
|Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico|
and around the world in many cultures.
|Tradition connected with the holiday include creating private altars (ofrendas)|
using marigolds, sugared skulls, sweet bread, the favorite foods and beverages
of the departed. The dead receive a warm and festive welcome from the
living during the observance of Dia de los Muertos in Mexico.
|At sundown families & friends gather sharing food & drink and|
reminisce with the departed recounting stories and
events of the past year.
|Scholars trace the modern day Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back|
hundred of years to an Aztec festival dedicated to a goddess named Mictecacihuatl
(a deity whose role is watching over the bones of the dead)
|Twelve chairs & they still do not overwhelm the space.|
|The draping definitely makes it look like a Ghost!|
|Martha Stewart's Ghost Costume is amazing!|
