Wren's first Thanksgiving and a Halloween Festival

We have had such a wonderful couple of weeks, and of course we have millions of pictures (primarily of Wren) documenting Wren's first Thanksgiving as well as a trip to the local Scarecrow Festival.
One of the highlights was Sean's Grandpa coming to visit. Wren was all smiles while getting to know her Great-Grandfather. The last time they met she was only 3 days old so it was nice to see him again and get some pictures.

The other highlight (for Wren anyways...) was discovering my mom's tupperware drawer!

It didn't take long for the entire drawer to be emptied onto the floor. Too bad she is too young to help clean up!

She always loves playing at Grandma's house because besides the tupperware she also has a pretty fun mailbox that Wren is crazy about.


Checking for new mail


This morning we went to the local Scarecrow Festival which is a wonderful event for families and children to raise money for various charities. Since it is indoors there is no worries about the weather and it is nice and warm for the kids.

I have to send a HUGE thank you to my friend Rebecca and her PlumeAria designs. She custom designed the spoooooky raven feather and black rose headband for me specifically for this day and a birthday party Wren and I are attending on Halloween. It was just amazing and got so much attention that Wren and I are going to be in the local newspaper as well as on the nightly news (talk about good publicity!).




In case you couldn't really tell, Wren is a Lobster this year~

OMGosh where did you get that adorable lobster costume. Your raven headband is beautiful. If you can use raven and beautiful in a sentence.

I was going to comment and ask where you got the beautiful headpiece before I read the text above it! It's very offbeat bridal. :-)

I found your blog by accident a few weeks ago and I adore your home decor and refurbishing posts! Thanks to you, I feel the need to repaint all of my raw pine (ugly, but they were cheaper) bookcases in shabby chic beachy white!
