We kind of had the whole Peter Pan theme going but, my 'Tinker Bell' really wanted to be Repunzel!

Wishing you all a very Haunted, Spooktacular,
 Fun and Safe, Halloween!!!! 

I know this is late, but I have been soooo busy with costumes and 
school party stuff, on top of all the other things
to do in life! SCARY!!!

I am going to show you my version of a Peter Pan costume and a quick
DIY Pirate shirt.

I have to say, I got inspired, again, by Pinterest, to make this costume!
 Peter Pan
 I went to the Thrift Store and bought little boys sweat pants and a women's shirt!
As you can see, I just cut the pant bottoms, the shirt sleeves and the bottom of the 
shirt with a jagged effect.
The belt was cut from an old shirt I had. I did have to safety pin the front
of the shirt because it kept sliding off his shoulders.
But nothing that a little safety pin can't fix!
And when it was on it just added to the look of the shirt!
Whah La!!!

The Pirate
My husband is a trooper! He just goes along with whatever the rest of 
the family picks for our costume theme. (As long as it doesn't require
any face painting!)
What I did for his shirt is,
I took an old white t-shirt. Cut out the neck, and cut a slit down the 
center, about 6". Then I took some small, but sharp scissors, and poked holes
in the fabric, on either side of the slit. (line them up evenly)
Then I took a shoe lace and fed it through the holes, like you would a shoe!
I put jagged cuts along the sleeves and bottom of the shirt.
We grabbed a rope from the garage, and 
Whah La, Again!
(those two costumes saved me lots of money)


I found this idea, also on Pinterest, on
I still used my recipe for the krispie's (you'll find on my blog). To make
three 9" round pans and one square (regular) treats, it took
3 batches of my recipe. A yellow one, an orange one, and a regular one!
When I saw this on Glorious Treats I just knew I had to try it!
What an awesome idea!!


I found this very interesting! At the pumpkin patch, there are workers that give tid bits of information. And they informed us that they line the pumpkin patch with planted sunflowers, so that they draw the bees. And that way they are sure that the pumkin vines will get pollinated. Pretty interesting!!!

Last but not least,..........
I just had to share a bit of Fall Beauty, with ya' all!!
These pictures were taken when I went with my son's school, on a field trip, to a
Pumpkin Patch!  

Enjoy your Halloween, and
