Garden: Growing Celery

Have you seen or heard of the trend of growing vegetables from your own veggies? Pinterest is all a buzz about it. If you check out YouTube, you'll loads of DIY tutorials.

Hubby took the bottoms of celery, put in a glass of 1/2 of water and once they sprouted he planted them in pots. They seem to be doing well outside.

Decorating For Autumn 2015

I just started my autumn decorating. Here's what I've done so far.

Thank You Playing House for This Amazing Swag Bag!

Oh Mother Hubbard! I in love! Signed, Clean Freak 😍

I really enjoy tweeting about my favorite TV shows, including Playing House on Tuesday nights. So I was wicked excited when they tweeted me saying that they love my tweets and wanted to send me a swap bag.

Note: Most swag bags contain a mug, hat, T-shirt and other merchandise items. And that's what I was expecting.

So when I opened the box, took out the bag and opened it up...I squealed! It was full of high end cleaning items! I'm so happy! Thank you Playing House!

Stopped By Big Lots This Week!

Stopped by Big Lots with a budget of $50 and ready to shop! I needed to stock up on toilet paper but wanted to check out their fall accents too.

I like this small flower arrangement. It will work well in our bedroom, on my side table.

The decorative pillows are replacing some worn out but loved cream pillows. We love the slate color and design.

FYI I did come under budget, spending only $37!

Finally Purchased a Lighting Kit!

I purchased a lighting kit at Amazon for under $40. Received 2 setups! Right now, I'm only using one but can setup the second in a few minutes after watching the hubby do it.

I've already noticed that the lighting is a huge improvement. The photos look more clear and sharp. And best of all, I can move the lighting through out the house!

Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription ~ Necklace, Bracelet and Rings

I really enjoyed wearing the bracelet. After all, I'm a silver and bling gal! The necklace worked with many of my basic T-shirts. Yes, a statement necklace can do wonders when worn with T-shirts! And while I am a silver jewelry fan I just couldn't get into these rings. I really do love cocktail rings.

After wearing the pieces, a few times, I boxed everything in the pre-labeled return shipping label and am awaiting a new box of goodies!

Menu Plan Monday ~ August 31, 2015

I just love August 31 because that's my official day of decorating the home for autumn! I was wicked excited when the homemade acorn ornaments that I ordered from SPRIGSfeltedflowers arrived today!

First of all, I love that they're handmade, felt and different colors. But the store is located in Vermont! I just love that.

Aren't they just adorable?

Hubby had the weekend off so we finished watching Season 4 of WhiteChapel on Hulu. I have to say this was the best season. We're hoping that the series will return for another season.

Just because I'm on a restricted diet doesn't mean hubby can't have something yummy. Sometimes I can enjoy a meal too like the Vegetable Ramen!
