These little guys left a lasting impression on me when I was browsing here;
That's right....I saw these last year in the Celebrate Halloween edition...I rushed to Hobby Lobby but alas, they had long since flown the coop.
I was in Hobby Lobby on Saturday and felt a dark, forboding fall over me and a definite chill in the air as I passed a display table. What the heck...so I had to do an immediate stop and look over my shoulder. And guess who was peering back at me with beady black eyes....It was meant to be and I'm never one to be fickle with fate, so these macarbe birdies jumped in the buggy to come live with me.
Here are the Ravens gracing the table from last year's magazine.
Wait a second....I seem to be missing something. Let me take off my reading glasses and turn up the lighting (for you younger folks who can see just fine in low light and without glasses, your day is coming). Yep. Looks like we left a brother behind and that just won't do. I'll have to wait to see if fate intervenes again as I make a point to visit the store again this weekend....is it meant to be? Let's hope it won't be Nevermore......
I moved my small sideboard into my kitchen and did a little accessory mixing. Don't worry, the ravens are just roosting here momentarily and will soon fly to the closet for another month.
Here I've added some fabric to lighten the vignette a bit against the dark wood and I've waved goodbye to the birdies.
A little green pitcher can become a candleholder with something placed inside to seat the candle. I've used a bottle of vitamin supplements...talk about unexpected. Hope I can remember where I put them.
I love Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha, but the closest store is about 30 miles away, which is probably a good thing because I could spend a lot of money sucking these delicious concoctions down. International Delights has come out with several varieties of flavored creamers and I spied the White Chocolate Mocha this weekend while grocery shopping. What the heck, I thought I would try it, without really thinking it would taste anywhere close to those drinks that I crave. I was pleasantly surprised to find that although not a perfect match, it's pretty darn close. For the price, I'm not going to split a frogs hair over the differance. I have not tried any of the other flavors, but there are several. Have you tried the white chocolate mocha or any of the other flavors? Let me know what you think.
