Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” R. W. Emerson

Tiny Halloween


I love tiny.
Mini versions of big things are just enchanting.


These Department 56 houses are one of our favorite Halloween treasures.
They encompass all the Trick or Treat nights of childhood.


I can almost hear the laughter and shouts as we run from house to house gathering goodies.


The thrill of passing that house everyone said was haunted.
Isn't there one in every neighborhood?
At least when you are 10 or 11.
So many things were possible that adults just would never believe.


Let's never let that sense of wonder go completely.
Live it in your heart.
See it in the eyes of your children and their children.


I hope this season brings back those childhood memories for each of you.
The thrills and frolic and piles of leaves crunching underfoot.
The whoops and tumbling and complete freedom of an autumn evening.
Ghost in the Graveyard and Hide and Seek until the evening got too dark 
and parents were heard calling.
Rosy cheeks and chilly noses.
Wonder.

Yours in being a child at heart, P.

Pin It!
