Are you Trick-or-Treating tonight?  I have learned my lesson in years past not to buy candy until Halloween day because I eat it all my little monsters eat it.  So I need to make a candy run today.  Happy Halloween!


  1. WOW! you have had a really busy month full of awesome projects!

    1. Thanks girl! I'm ready to sit down and eat some candy :).

  2. You had a busy month. I'm with you on the candy - going out to buy it today (maybe we'll get some good deals). Have a good day!

  3. You are so talented, Rene! I love, love, love checking in with you each day! You have inspired me to do some re-doing around mi casa.

    1. Mandy, you are too kind! Thanks for reading!

  4. You deserve a lot of chocolate after that productive month! I bought some about two days ago, and opened it in the car!

  5. You are the project queen!!! I definitely need to be more like you. I can't buy candy until late today cause I have the same I have to buy candy that I don't really like.

  6. Wow Rene, you were very busy this month. Good for you! It must feel great to get so many projects completed, and your home looks beautiful as always.

    Have a fun Halloween!

  7. You have been a very busy gal this month! Wonderful projects Rene and you always inspire me to try my hand at something new. I made the candy run last night....should have waited until today....I ripped open the bag of Twix already. I look forward to passing out candy and seeing all the costumes, especially the tiny tots. Happy Halloween!

  8. What cute pumpkins you have there -- so fun! :-) Happy Halloween to you! I hope your day and evening are wonderful.

  11. I see a post I missed????!!! Off to check it out! Hope you had fun last night, and the sugar coma isn't too bad! :)

  12. Just had to chime in that I do the same thing with the Halloween candy. If I buy it before hand I can't stop eating it. I also have already made myself sick raiding their bags after they go to bed at night. Also, love seeing all your posts for the month together like this--so many great projects!
