Black and White for Halloween

I decided to do a little something different with my Halloween decorating this year....Black and White!  Gotta say, I'm loving it!!  This room is actually meant to be the formal living room.  Who says you can't rearrange the rooms occasionally?  :)

Thank you for peeking in!  Happy Halloween!

Well jeez! Another year...

Another year gone by.  And what a year it has been!  Miss Macey turned four and goes to preschool two days a week now.  Tyler is now 16 months and is giving me gray hairs daily.  ;)  That's the BEST in life.  (Well, not the gray hairs.)  The not so good, well, I like to focus on the positive.  Let's just leave it at that.  And the mundane things....we moved household in March.  Though things are unpacked, the house is not as I like it to be.  So much painting to be done and so little time to do it!

My space at Monticello Antique Marketplace keeps me busy, as do bears, a little side gig - helping a friend with estate sales, and of course, the grandchildren and Bill.  So you see why I have so little time to paint.  The sad thing is that I have actually picked out paint colors and have purchased some of said paint.  I WILL get to it eventually!

So, the new house is big.  It's really big.  It's so big that I actually have a room inside the house for all my Halloween and Christmas decorations.  We also have a room designated as the Monticello room for staging all the antique goodies for the different seasons.  Is that beyond crazy?!!  Yeah, crazy AWESOME!

Oh, and my new studio space is cozy....yes, meaning small.  Smallest room in the house!  This is a good thing really.  I don't need any more stuff to accumulate in there!!  I do have plenty, and actually, my desk is chock full of ideas for this, that, and everything else!  On that note, I will close, get up there, and create something.  :)

I hope it's only a matter of days before another blog post with pretty things rather than a year.

Happy Autumn, friends!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
