Real or Fake???

I am always so curious to find out what type of tree people have these days: Real or Fake?

 I prefer a real tree because of the aroma it leaves in the house. I know many people cannot have real due to allergies. I would love to hear what everyone else prefers and why:) We are planning on getting our tree next weekend along with putting up all our decorations. I am going to try and get a little creative with our tree this year and will post pics when we get it up :)  Thanks for stopping by,

Crafts and other stuff

                                    This was the pumpkin after I baked it, peeled, and cut it up
                                  This was after I mashed it and put it in freezer bags to freeze:)
Well, I have been busy getting ready for the holidays and one thing I do every year is make fresh Pumpkin Pie. I learned this from my mom who always made it this way. I always buy 2 pumpkins at Halloween. One to carve, of course, and one to cook. I bake the pumkin then I have to cut it up and mash it. Since I usually end up with a lot of pumpkin, I freeze it until I am ready to make my pies. This year I ended up with 3 1/2 batches. On another note, I previously told you about me redecorating my house. These are just some of the picture frames I made and hung. I thought they turned out pretty cute! By the way...I am still learning about blogging and how everythign is laid out, so I'm sorry that my pictures are before my post...haven't figured out how to change that..haha
 Thanks for stopping by!!

 I thought this would be the perfect topic for today! It seems as though many things are inspiring me these days. I was inspired to start a blog:) (Thanks Jen!!)   Then I saw these two pictures and absolutely fell in love! I decided to do my whole house in the patterns that are in the background of these photos. Not to mention I am redoing my bedroom as well! Next, I visited a couple blogs that had beautiful decorations for Christmas and Fall and I decided I would try some new decorating techniques. And finally, I have become obsessed with trying to find coupons and good deals. Before, I would only shop at one store for everything. I now shop at 4+ stores depending on where my coupons are from. If you have any suggestions on good ways to find coupons, please feel free to comment:) Thanks for visitng!!
