FREEBIE :: Thanksgiving Pie Topper

thankful, free topper, thanksgiving pie, friendsgiving, hand lettered



Hello my friends!    

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and everyone is busy making plans for the big day and thinking about what they will serve and have on their menus. I love this time of year as it gives us all a pause and allows us extra time to spend with all of our families and friends before the official 'rush' of the holidays sets in. When you think of Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? Your family memories as a kid, that special side dish that your aunt always brings every year, or maybe it's passing a football in the back yard with your brothers and cousins. A certain tradition that you do every year around the dinner table? Whatever it is . . . it IS what makes this day special to each of us as we all have our own stories and memories that we hold dear. Perhaps you really look forward to the bird of the day and all of that pie that comes later on in the day after everyone takes their food coma naps and wakes up ready to dig into some pie? For me, that's one of my faves!

Whether you like to celebrate Thanksgiving, friends-giving or both, I have something for you today that I think you are going to love! But the best part is it's going to compliment all of those delicious pies and desserts that you enjoy after that nap! ;)

Today I bring you the perfect pie companion: a FREE pie topper that says what else? THANKFUL. We all have something to be THANKFUL for and now you can add being thankful for a free pie topper to your list! ;)

Like I mentioned, this pie topper says "Thankful" and comes set within a banner for the perfect accent to your Thanksgiving day desserts! I love the warm colors of this banner and I also am providing you with TWO different sizes all on ONE file, so you can use in different desserts, if you like.

HOME :: Halloween Decorating Ideas

Hello and Happy Halloween!!! 

Today I wanted to share with all of you how I decorated my home this year for Halloween! My daughter has a party every year so I tend to maybe do a little more decorating than the average person but that's more than OK with me since we love Halloween around here! ;)


Some years the decorating just comes together perfectly and other years it can be a struggle to figure out something new to do with your home decor but for me, this year was a mix of both. I was trying to do something different with what I had and I realized the problem was I was NOT liking the mix of ALL of the Halloween colored decor that I have. Sometimes you hear of people trying to mix all of the decor together to create a uniform look throughout the decor going from room to room in their homes but I am here to show you that you do NOT have to do that and it still works!

I decided on featuring different rooms with different colored decor instead of the traditional mix of them all and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out!

Let's start with my MANTEL. I LOVE my mantel and it was one of the areas of my condo that convinced me to purchase this place as it is so perfect for decorating during the holidays. I did the mantel in the traditional classic orange and black Halloween decor with just a hint of spookiness thrown in! ;)

Most of the items here I have collected from my favorite stores over the years: Target, Hobby Lobby and Pier 1. The haunted house came from a partnership with Yankee Candle a couple years ago and the Halloween subway art you can download for FREE from my blog.

Just to the left of our mantel, is where the couch and this gallery wall area are in the living room. I continued the orange and black Halloween decor and added a few touches to our already black and white living room.

The last part of my living room that I always love to decorate is the table under our TV because it is right across from the couch and we are always staring at it so it has to look great right? ;).

Now it's time to change color schemes and check out some, well what I like to call 'glam Halloween' decor which is my decor that consists of some glitter and bright fun colors. This area is next to the living room which used to be our formal dining room that I turned into my craft room. ;)

This year I added some new decor to my dining room table as Target had these amazing velvet pumpkins that I "may" have bought a few of ;) and these potion bottles to match! I just had to have these for my centerpiece this year!
