It feels nothing like fall and my wreath looks like it has seen a few hard years, but it is hanging on my door!
I wanted to add a dish of candy corn to my home … because it’s the right thing to do …. but alas, I bought two bags of Candy Corn weeks ago and well, I ate both of them weeks ago. Having a readily available dish made things a bit too easy for me to eat them.
But please look at how cute this dish is (minus the skull … I’m not a skull in my candy corn kind of gal, but that’s just me) …
Everywhere I turn there are candy corns. And you know I love ’em.
For starters, my friend Laura brought me candy corn lip balm the other day. It was SUCH a fun happy and I have enjoyed smacking my lips together every single time I put it on! It’s from Avon if you need some for yourself.
I think something like this would be cute on a table or mantle. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to have a mantle in my new house! Because it means I will have a fireplace!! Bill cannot understand my longing for a fireplace seeing how we live in a climate where you use one approximately zero times a year but you never know … this might be a cold winter. And if it is, you will find me warming up by my fire.
Another blog featured this CUTE craft:
Craftomaniac gives the “how to” here. She just used a frame from Wal-mart and made it! Since I have zero crafting abilities, I won’t be making one of these but please tell me if you do!
And lastly … Jacob went home from school today with a new buddy in his class. When I pulled up to get him what to my wandering eyes should appear?
Cute little candy corn lights!
They are $8 for a box with 3 candy corn lights at Lowe’s … (you are looking at $24 worth right there) … so I’m not getting those either. I do need to pick out some new light fixtures but I’m pretty sure those aren’t what Bill has in mind.
I did pick up two little garlands of candy corn at the Great Indoors. They were cheap and I hung them on my fence between my garage and my house. Kind of dark in this picture, but you’ll get the idea.
And a cornucopia of candy corn would not be complete without a nod to Halloween 2009 when I went trick or treating with what had to have been THE cutest candy corn I had ever seen!
Now I’m off to look for a new fall wreath … one with a candy corn on it. Let me know if you see one!
