DIY Straw Vase and Halloween Blog Hop

Posted by on Oct 2, 2013 in Uncategorized | 7 comments

Have you ever had one of those days?

The kind where you spent a long time studying for a test,

and you thought you did well,

and then you got the grade back,

and you were wrong.

And, you felt so sad and discouraged.

Well, I haven’t been in school now for years…

…but, I remember those days.

And, on those days…

…you need a pick me up.

So, I threw together a backyard candy party in less than 5 minutes.

Perfect for talking, laughing and boosting one little morale. 🙂

{But, would also be one super cute Halloween centerpiece.}

I filled mine with blue spray painted branches.

And, invited my little girl outside,

for a special time of talking,

laughing,

eating candy,

and reminding her how proud I was of her.

This would be such a fun centerpiece for any Halloween gathering,

or morale boosting session.

By the way, it worked! 🙂

Life to the full!
