Four Under $10 at Target for Christmas {Pretty, Happy, Funny Real}

I have no shame in admitting I am already listening to Christmas music and decking the halls around the house.  All while eagerly planning my Thanksgiving menu no less.  Everything about Christmas just makes the world a happier place for me and I plan to savor that feeling this year.
I am also unashamed to admit that
I adore Target and they don't even pay me to say that!  Here are four Christmasy things I found to help me get in the holiday mood - all for less than $10.00!


~PRETTY~
$8.00 Tinsel trees that come in red, silver, green and multicolored.  These are easy to stick in children's bedrooms, beside the fireplace or, in my case, I am going to try to put them outside on top of my pots with the dead mums in them.  :)

~HAPPY~
Don't you love the dollar spot at Target?  This $1.00 snowflake bucket makes a great pen cup.  (Flair pens are extra of  course.)  It could hold a teacher's gift card or a small stack of homemade cookies wrapped in tissue.
See the new Michael Buble CD over there?  For $9.99 you can enjoy his warm as cocoa voice singing you It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas and it's so good you may even start to believe him!

~FUNNY~
These four Nicole mini polishes are $9.99 and the names made me smile.  Try painting the extra snowflakes please over any other color. I have already had several compliments on my toes!  And here's a real bargain idea, split them up as stocking stuffers and make that money go even farther.

~REAL~
While I was attempting to take these very average photos my real life snuck into the pics.  Here KC is admiring the colorful pens.  I had to promise to make art with him after the photo shoot to get him to leave them alone.  
Notice the feet in the upper right corner?  ZJ was reading his new book on the staircase and I instead of asking him to move I just cropped those feet out of the first photo.

    I am gifting some friends with the book coming out next week as a surprise, so I didn't want to post it on my page, yet. If you're looking, plan on reading for a while! http://fatherlessbook.com/

    Thanks for the tips! And I love the stockinged feet in the last photo.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings

How to Create Art in Five Minutes

As I have mentioned before, my word for this year is CREATE .  Painting with watercolors is one area in which I have been experimenting.  Michael's has a really inexpensive line of art supplies called Artist's Loft .  I bought the watercolor paints and a few brushes as a way to get started without much investment. (Everything is around $5-$10.)   Being a part of Alisa Burke's on-line class called Create Daily , has awakened my senses to the many opportunities to create quickly .  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that we must have large blocks of time set aside to be artistic .  Surely, we think, it takes an afternoon to paint, collage, journal or compose a few lines of poetry.  Well, if you are seeking perfection, it does.  But if you are seeking to revel in your simplistic ability to create something imperfect instead of nothing at all ,  there are moments of creative inspiration everywhere you look! On this particular day, I opened my daily poetry em
