Facade Fiasco and Bench tops on!

Well the last week has been a little stressful - there was a big stuff up with our facade. But it has now been fixed, bricks knocked down and back on track - and we are happy with how it looks so that is great!

The bench tops have gone on and we love it - so happy as we had to change from our original selection which is no longer in production and we were not 100% sure we had made the right choice but seems we have!

Bricking is nearly done and paining should be beginning any day!

In celebration of the first day of Fall on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 11:09 PM (EST).

I decided to dress up the gardens in front of the house with Mum Flowers and Pumpkins.
My Pumpkin urns inspired me to go back to Michaels and pick up material to build an Autumn Wreath for my front door. All their flowers are still 50% off, so I picked up what I needed, and creative my Wreath with twist ties and a glue gun.

It's that time of year again! Pumpkin season. When the leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and Halloween is right around the corner.

We enjoyed an outing today at a local Pumpkin patch "FORSYTHE FARM". The kid's were able to pick their own Pumpkins, go on a wagon ride, run through the corn maze, pet farm animals, and eat ginger bread cookies.

These guys also make the best home made pies, I bought a Cherry and Apple pie.
Do I have to share?

Meet the newest members to my family, Vincent & Boris. Both are named after two of my favorite Horror Actors, Vincent Price & Boris Karloff.

I had to replace my older Styrofoam Gargoyles on top of my front entrance pillars, so I picked up these two bad boys at HomeSence on the weekend. I first painted them black and then two different shades of grey.

I built both pillars out of 3/4" plywood, added moulding on both the top and bottom, finally I inserted a 40 watt speaker in each pillar.

Now there ready to join the other seven pillars I've built that surrounds my cemetery with rod iron fencing.


Before the weather starts getting colder, I thought it would be a good idea to cleaned out my gardens this weekend.

I purchased these two fake pumpkins with decorated dry flowers at Michaels Craft Store. I wanted to give my two front entrance urns that autumn festive look.

I purchased some additional items to dress up the urns, Spanish moss and fall leaves. To protech the flowers from fading because there outside, I sprayed them with UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating.

Best part of all, I used a 50% off coupon to purchase everything.

Bricks continue, cabinets in!

Well it has been a little while since I updated on here - but things are progressing! Brickie is slowly working away on the bricks but he is doing a great job so we are happy with that. The cabinets are in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry. All doors are in - looks great very happy with colour choices so far!

I purchased my favorite scented candle on the weekend at Michaels "Pumpkin Spice".
It reminds me of the fall and triggers my brain into thinking how close Halloween really is.
