The Queen of Halloween

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I am the Queen of Halloween! Not the gory, ugly, super scary kind of Halloween. I’m more of the cute decor, let’s dress up and eat candy type of gal. I’m all about the fun!


I can’t help myself. You bust out the candy corn and I am there and I don’t even like sweets. Halloween is a mere one week away, so we have been busy bees here at the castle getting ready for it!

October Road Trips Part 2

I’m back home and ready to share the last leg of my October road trips part 2 with you!When I last left you, I was saying good-bye to Round Top, Texas and heading to my home town of El Reno, OK. If you missed part 1, you can see it here.

I had to share one last, not very flattering picture, with you of our Junk Gypsy Pent Up picture! Our sweet “adopted” daughter had the cutest crocheted dress. Can you imagine making that?

Fabulous Finds

Happy Friday to you! This week I’ve spent more time shopping and getting ready for vacation than getting a whole lot done. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still frantically trying to tie a few projects up so that I can go on vacation without a worry. However, I thought that I would show you just how much I love you, my friends, by sharing my fabulous finds with you!

Okay, so maybe I should say they are more fun finds than fabulous, but fabulous sounds better! So grab a pumpkin spice latte, have a seat and enjoy all of the fabulous finds!

Fall on the Front Porch

I’m finally finishing up fall on the front porch. I’ve been working on my front entry for awhile, but haven’t quite felt like it was finished.

To make it prettier, I would add more pumpkins and flowers.  Done!

An hour or so later, I would be removing them because I felt like I had too many pumpkins and flowers. I tell you, some days it isn’t easy living in my head!

How To Dress Up Your Pumpkin

Y’all I can’t wait to show you how to dress up your pumpkin! They are so stinking cute!!!

I would love to tell you that this was totally my idea, but that would so be a lie. I was cruising Micheal’s website for idea for a fall project, when I came up Miss Heidi Swapp herself sharing how to dress up your pumpkin! You can see Heidi’s post here.

Fall at the Castle

It is almost September, y’all! Hard to believe that it is time to decorate for fall at the castle.

I’m slowly pulling out the fall decor, trying to decide what I want to use. It’s so hard!

I really need to stay off of Pinterest. I see something that I really love and immediately want to decorate like that.  Even if it doesn’t match my existing decor. Anyone else have that problem?

Bats At The Castle

There are bats at the Castle! I have been busy pulling out the fall and Halloween decor. Maybe it’s the cooler temperatures that have me in a fall mood.

I know it’s really early to be thinking of Halloween, but I see pumpkins and loose my head! Besides, now is the time to get crafty for the up coming fall season. My sweet friend, Siana, sent me a picture of a Halloween wreath and told me that I needed to make it. So I did!

Charger Makeover

Okay, I admit it, I’m weak when it comes to fall and Halloween decorations. I can’t help myself. Shopping for new items to spruce up my fall table was turning out to be a challenge, especially in the charger department. First world problem, right? Then it occurred to me, why not a charger makeover?

So, I grabbed a few items in the arts and crafts isle and got busy!

Buc-ee’s, Mudpie and Crowns

I love Buc-ee’s, Mudpie and Crowns! Really. When I’m on the road here in Texas there is, thankfully, a Buc-ee’s conveniently waiting for me.

Buc-ee’s not only has a million clean ladies bathrooms, okay slight exaggeration,but I have never had to wait for a bathroom stall, it has just about everything you could want. Including a few of my favorite things!
