Halloween treats a la Martha Stewart

I got this idea from the Martha Stewart Halloween magazine. She sure loves this holiday. She made them with chocolate madeleines but I opted for brownies without nuts and I fixed the marshmallow skulls on with a bit of chocolate icing. The eyes and nose in skulls are black frosting i put on with a toothpick and actually made a hole.
The mouth is a cut and you cut the sides of the big marshmallow with scissors to give it a skull shape. I gave these treats to the neighbor kids, postal carrier etc. We do candy on trick or treat night but these were extra.
I think the treating time should always fall on the Saturday closest to October 31 it would make life easier and who wants to go out on a school night?
Have a Pink day!

Time is running out-- doom and gloom upon us

Approach if you dare!

The spiders are crawling and the leaves are falling

Come stop by and see

what you find that the devil left behind

Come and visit me!
Beware beware
Have a Pink day!

I thought I'd share a few more pink things from my very pink house. I just got the new pink peony guest towel and the MA towel is from Versailles. I need to find someone who can embroider the monogram for me on some linens.

I love this French style display case. We saw it at a local antiques shop. It is not old just someone's display piece they were selling. I used it to put my little treasures in. I hate to not see my pretty things.

Part of living Pink is living with lovely things--things lovely to you- using your pretty things enjoying life every day!

Have a Pink day!

Don't you want to go inside

I love the twinkle of chandeliers. They seem to draw me toward them. The refraction of the light is magical. The chandelier imparts a sense of occasion.I associate the light with Paris, ice, ballet,champagne and Narnia!

Pink Saturday and changing tastes

Sublime and restrained and still pink

Happy Pink Saturday!

Visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more pinkty pinkness

I have been thinking about redecorating the formal living room. I think this is the look I will try to achieve. Beige and gold with hints of pink. I will never give up my Aubusson needlepoint area rug but it already has those colors so making the sofas more neutral and just color on silk drapery and 2 chairs should be enough and be more soothing. Is it because I am getting older that I want to have a calmer space? I will keep my eye open for more photos that have the "look" I want. Maybe Pink Boy will say go ahead next year to redoing ! I hope so. Have a Pink day!

Pinkish tea cups and sweet peas

New/ old cake plate You can never have too many cake plates!

Love the two handles anyone know about that why there are two?

Scalloped edges on the saucers are so girly

Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!

Join Wanda Lee at the Silken Purse
Just added some new tea cups and another cake plate to my collection.

I just got these sweet tea cups at a local antiques shop-High Cottage in Marietta.

I love cake plates and use them a lot for creating height in a table scape, showing things off on the sideboard and for serving of course.

I love these sweet peas from Botanical Interests--they have a great web site. I plant sweet peas every year and I also bought these perennial ones and they do come back year after year.

My fall season is still a pink one!

I love this time of year. I love all the fall colors and the crisp air. It is a very productive time for me. I always start new projects in the fall.

But--I like a pinkish fall I still have pink mums and pink dahlias around the garden and I planted some pink snapdragons and pink and green ornamental cabbages too.

Paris makes me blush!

The lamp post and Tour Eiffel are glittery

Pink Saturday is here!

Click on link below to see more pink:

Isn't this just too much! I had to buy this when I saw it in a magazine. All those Paris landmarks glittering at you from the pretty compact case. Everyone can use some blush and why not be transported to Paris when you apply it?

C'est chic
Have a Pink day!

Sydney-Marie is on the go

She is ready for a walk in the cool fall air. Bothof us are "slimming" so walks are good for us. Even with her thick coat I think she gets chilled so I found this doggie coat at TJ Maxx. She prefers to ride in the pink doggie stroller but walk she must.

Have a Pink day!

Pink Saturday living large in my mind

A dressing room always needs fresh flowers- pink bien sur!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I found these images of Suzanne Rogers dressing room on tumblr. Isn't it amazing? I want one like this --don't you? All French and formal and pink and white. I would spend a lot of time in there. My closet looks so drab in comparison.

Join Beverly for more pink posts.-

Halloween is coming the ghosts are getting fat

This is my centerpiece for dining room table. I mad eit with my glue gun. I can reuse it since the big pumpkin is fake. We will also use it when we hand out candy I will put it outside by the front door where we stand.

It is time to work on Halloween costumes--we love to dress up.The neighbor kids get a kick out of the dressing up and the fog machine and spooky music.

Have a Pink day!
