Scary Bottle Labels Free Printable


This weekend I had some extra crafting time because my husband was out of town. I don’t know about you, but when I sit down to do crafts I need several hours at a time because I like to spread  all my supplies out in front of me. I like to see all the supplies so that I can start playing with stuff and deciding what I want to make.

When the kids were younger, I used to meet with some other moms and we would scrapbook and rubber stamp for hours. I miss having that crafting time. I don’t scrapbook so much anymore, but I still enjoy making crafts, especially ones that are used to decorate for the season.

I wanted to finish the Halloween decorating this week, so I decided to make some scary labels for some extra empty bottles I had in my recycle bin.

Free Scary Bottle Labels for Halloween

 Scary bottles

These were my supplies.

Crafting supplies
I ended up using a barbecue bottle, a mason jar, and a spirits bottle. I washed the bottles and dried them and took off the expiration dates that were stamped on them by gently rubbing them off with an emery board. I made some scary bottle labels using PicMonkey and attached them to the clean and empty bottles with Mod Podge.
They really helped me set a spooky scene in our living room. On Halloween, I will fill the bottles with some colored water for added effect. In case you aren’t done with your decorating I have attached the principal for you to download below.
You can also print these out on sticker paper and attach them to bottles of soda or mixers for a Halloween party.

Ten Reasons I Love My Keurig


You may remember a few months ago when I attended the BlogHer conference? While I was there I was invited to a breakfast sponsored by Keurig. We were able to see what the features of the new Keurig were before most of the information was shared with the public.  I was very impressed by the new Keurig 2.0.

Disclosure – in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  Several weeks later I received a Keurig 2.0 free of charge. All opinions are always my own and you can read my disclosure policy here.

I am so excited about my first Keurig that I just have to share with you! My former coffee maker was a drip and carafe style coffee maker, and to tell you the truth, I kept it nearby in case I decided I liked it better than the Keurig. But that did not happen so today I want to share with you my 10 reasons why I love my Keurig 2.0:

Really Easy Pumpkin Twists


I went for a walk after work yesterday and for the first time the weather felt cool and crisp, like actual fall! I was so excited that the season finally is catching up to us. I had to cut my walk short because the evenings are getting shorter. Boo! That is the part I do not like as much.

To celebrate, I made these really easy treats.




I made these little twists by twisting the dough


They come out of the oven with warm pumpkin goodness.


Then you drizzle them with just a little icing,  [Read more...]

Pear Feta Fall Salad


This weekend was busy. And very warm for October. I really want to be making soups and chili, but because it is so warm, I have been making salads. I wanted to make it a Fall salad so I took some field greens and  added some pears and dried cranberries to make it more like the season. The Pear and Feta salad came out really tasty.

I decided, for fun, to put it my new salad bowl from Uncommon Goods. Disclosure: As a blogger, companies will occasionally send me products to review, but I only share things that I have tried and loved. All opinions are mine. I really love this bowl.


It makes serving salads so much fun. It is great for parties, entertaining and barbeques.  My favorite is the serving oars that come with the salad bowl. You can find the salad bowl at Uncommon Goods. It makes a great gift for someone who loves to entertain, or loves the beach.

Salad-in-row-boatThe rowboat salad bowl is sturdy and made with hand-polished aluminum. It is so cute, that it looks good empty as a decorative piece as well.

Happy Friday to you! I am sharing a few of my Friday faves today.

In case you missed it, I’ve started my Halloween decorating and now I’m just waiting for the weather to cool down here so I can make some soup and start baking. Seriously it’s been about 85° here in Southern California, but it’s starting to cool down now.
I really wish I could see the leaves falling like we did when we visited Oregon last year.
We also saw a cool pumpkin patch.
 and lots and lots of beautiful trees…
So for now I have my memories and these photos for my fall foliage inspiration. Now for some exciting news,  I am participating in a huge event with some fabulous other bloggers. This is a chance to win some cash for the holidays and who doesn’t need extra cash?  So take a few minutes to enter I’d love to see one of you win!
