Dawson & Decor

My younger brother, Ethan, and wife Jerri, stopped by to show off their new baby, Dawson and to rid me of my last few baby items (don't worry, we're officially done). Anyways, here is a picture of my newest cutie-pie nephew and his lovely mother...


I also created a mantel display for the upcoming season. In the frugality of this time-period, may I say I spent $2 on shells from Dollar Tree, $3 on the two prints from the local thrift store (changed the frame on the larger), paid $3 for the empty wreath at Michaels, and shopped the house for the candlestick and vintage milk bottle and sand. The fishnet I splurged, paying $10 at Michael's (which could have been half that if I'd remembered my coupon- urgh!). So a total of less than $20 to make me smile the whole season through. Here you go...

I like your sea shell arrangement, very pretty!!

Thank you for your birthday wishes to Elijah. Poor little boy, he is VERY SICK with the flu...on his first birthday. =(

So glad you tried and like the biscotti recipe. It's pretty yummy isn't it? I was happy with how mine turned out, and just ate the last piece last night. =)
