A LONG LABOUR OF LOVE ALMOST DONE.....+ TOMTE/NISSE





Finally after all these months our floor is almost finished.  By tomorrow everything will be back in place and we can enjoy our distressed floor.  When I decided to do this I knew it would be a long process, sanding, painting, distressing, staining and finally varnishing 3 coats to each separate board, 140 in all.  The pictures do not do the floor justice, it looks like worn blue jeans and we just love it. Would I do another one. NO.   I did our bedroom with the floor already laid out and that was hard , this one to get the proper effect had to be done individually but it was worth it ...once is enough though.



In between getting the floor done I have been getting ready for the HOLIDAY HANDMADE MARKET on November 25 in Guelph, Ontario at the Gilded Cage Boutique.  I just finished a batch of Elder ( because they are white) Tomte/Nisses and they look fabulous.  10 days and counting, fingers crossed they all find a home.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, IT IS THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!!

I want to wish all of my Blogging Friends a Happy Halloween.  First let's see some very cool Halloween ideas.



I love all of these!  I do the hats on my front porch, a little wire and they look like they are magically floating.  Love the candles, probably from a film



Nothing like a group of brooms at the door that says Happy Halloween.  Love the pumpkin fence and this makeup is to die for.










A little extra post today.  A few years ago a fellow blogger had a PRACTICAL MAGIC blog hop.  I loved it.  The house in the film was constructed for the film but is is the absolute perfect witch house. If you have not seen this picture you must it is fab.  I added the winding staircase because it is just amazing.  Also found this fabulous house, the Mason House, what an wonderful home for a witch.

I wish you all a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN .  It is freezing here in Ontario and very windy I just hope it settles long enough for the little ones to have a nice TRICK OR TREAT.

MY FAVOURITE NIGHT IS ALMOST HERE!!!


Samhain, All Hallows Eve, my favourite night of the year!



I love this night as much as Christmas, maybe more.  I celebrate the blessings of the year, good or bad and  make a blessing for a good harvest and a great new year.



A time to celebrate, the veil lifts and the night is free.  Spirits walk the night, time to bless the souls who have passed.
