remember that scene in ET where ET hides in the closet with the stuffed animals?

I was looking for Macie the other morning. I looked upstairs and downstairs.
I looked in everyone of her sleeping spots.
Then I happen to see a movement under the kitchen table where her toy box is.
This is were she was laying, quite content to hang out with her toys

you are missed

...but none more than today.

There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain.
All these places have their moments
Of lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I loved them all. (The Beatles)
We love you Justin

so easy, even a caveman could do it...

We were in this fancy schmancy boutique in Seaside last weekend. It was all decked out in fall and Halloween decor. I saw this cute sign sitting on a side table. Foam board with the word Boo! printed on it.
Another little sign had the words Give Thanks. They wanted $17. each for them.Not happening...
It was one of those moments when you look at something and say. . .Thats really cute, but I could make that myself in about 15 minutes. So thats what I did.
I took a piece of scrapbook paper with some writing print on it, then I inked it up so it looked old. I think the one in the store might have used a page from an old book. If I had an old book, thats what I would have used too, but this was the next closest thing I could think of.
Then I printed the word Boo on it. Just realized that I forgot the ! ... darn it.
Anyway, I cut some black foam core 1" larger than the paper and glued it down. I considered using some black chipboard I had, and it would have worked too, but I like the thickness of the foam core board...After that I just stuck a bow on it and was done!
Just the finishing touch I needed for the entry hall table.
I'm going to make a few more of these, for thanksgiving and another for Christmas.

love this

coffee table.
Well, the whole room actually.
Although I do not like the pottory barn price for it.
I keep wondering how hard it would be to make something along these lines with an old door?
I think I've seen these wheels at the feed and farm supply store....hmmmmm

new shoes

Does anything feel any better than wearing a new pair of shoes. I love new shoes, but Im seriously in love with the pair I bought last weekend...they are by Naot and I have not taken them off since I got them.
These things are theeee most comfortable shoe I think I have ever slid my foot into.
I've been wearing them with pants, but I think they will look equally as cute with black tights and a skirt.
