If you were really lucky, you might score a candy bracelet you could eat right off your wrist. These days, things have amped up to a whole new level, with fancy favors becoming standard for
We were inspired to bring back this classic Halloween project not just because it's a fast and fun decorating idea for the upcoming spooky season, but also because we had a recent bat encounter. A pair of Little Brown Bats (that is actually what they're called - cute, but also scientific, I guess) flew in

The mug rug is a mini placemat with just the right amount of room for a mug and a few little treats. Ours features pretty patchwork on one side with custom embroidery (a free download) on the opposite side’s pocket and napkin.

One of my favorite books as a child was a Little Golden Book version of the classic story, The Elves and the Shoemaker. I forced my mother to read it over and over until the binding split. What I loved the most, and wanted for my very own, were the curly-toed boots the little elves
I've always thought Frosty the Snowman was one of the saddest holiday songs ever, because he melts away in the end. It could bring me to tears as a child. So, we came up with a way to keep Frosty safe year 'round. We used a beautiful long napped, Mongolian style faux fur in snow white

Spooky Season is right around the corner. Cast a spell over the little trick-or-treaters with this fashionable Halloween apron. With an empire waist, double layer skirt, and pretty piped pocket, it has a certain haunting charm.

Wreaths are always a popular decorating accent, whether for a special holiday or to brighten up every day. We had just finished reviewing all the fun you can have making poms with the Clover Pom Pom Makers and were wondering what to do with all our pretty little poms. A colorful wreath was just the
Our trio of soft stockings features handsome velvet cuffs and whimsical, dangling pom-poms. The rich tones of red, ivory, cream, spruce and chocolate are reminiscent of a brimming basket of Christmas potpourri. You can almost smell the cinnamon sticks simmering on the stove. We offer downloadable patterns for the body of the stocking and the cuff,
It's coming up on Halloween season and costume shops have started popping up in all sorts of unusual places. Empty store fronts become haunted mansions for a few weeks and then vanish once again. It's appropriately spooky! They have all sizes and shapes of costumes for kids, and there seems to be endless options for
A pretty little pillow is a fast and easy way to add a touch of sweet color and design to the pillowscape on a bed, sofa or chair. Our banded bow pillow blends petite florals and sweet stripes, a nostalgic combination with a soft, romantic feel. We add a light interfacing to the bow, which
Doesn't it seem like some stores start putting out holiday decorations at exactly the same time as the fun size Halloween Snickers® bars. Every year it creeps a bit closer. Soon, we'll be listening to "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" as we pack the back-to-school lunches! Whenever you choose to decorate for the
With its bright ribbons and a festive red denim highlighted with white piping and white tufted buttons on each end, this bolster reminds us of a cozy Scandinavian sweater. Doesn't it just make you want to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa. It's a great style for the holidays, but
