My new vintage

When I found out that I was hosting Thanksgiving this year, I set out to find some things for the dining room.  I ended up in a little antique store where I found candlesticks, a bowl, and some napkin rings.  
Anyways, today I was rearranging and I moved the candlesticks.  I looked at the bottom to see if I could find out more about them.  Thats when I noticed a faint imprint in the felt.  Turns out, my antique candlesticks are really Pottery Barn.  And., furthermore, they are STILL selling them.  For $44 a piece.

Reindeer cookies

I have to bring some treats for the kids' parties at school.

I made these cookies using graham crackers, pretzels, marshmellows, chocolate, m and ms. And nilla wafers.

To hold everything together, I used marshmellow creme ( can't use peanut butter at school or I prob would have done that!).

These are so cute and can't possibly taste bad since I didn't bake anything!.. . Hope the kids love 'em!

Gingerbread houses

I have been on a sofa search for the playroom.  I have my eyes on two in particular, but I am having a dilemma over which sofa to choose.  I really like the fact that they are both slip-covered white, so that hopefully I can just wash/bleach them and they will always look clean.  I have not actually "tested" them, but I need to!
  • This one is a more expensive
  • looks smaller b/c of the two cushions
  • Comes with throw pillows

  • Can purchase slipcover in other colors!
  • Has three cushions. looks roomier
  • less expensive.
