Thoughts of Warmer Places - Southwestern Patterns

As I sit here a few weeks after Christmas, I'm thinking how bleak an cold it is outside. the temperature has been mostly below 10 degrees lately and there's too much snow and ice for me ( which is any). I need to think about warmer places. Now, when I think about Florida - where several members of my family live - I can't help thinking about alligators and sharks. So my mind turns to the west. California is too crowded and strange so I stop at New Mexico and Arizona.

 I really like the colorful Native American patterns that you see out west. So, let's see what I can find for you to take a look at.

Dressing for Halloween

It's already October and that means you're trying to find the right costume for you, your husband, the kids, and/or your dog. I've been reading a lot in the last couple days about how Halloween costumes for children are way too sexy or grizzly for the age group.

I am sooo disappointed in all of you. This is what the internet was created for, isn't it? Better shopping choices?!

In a couple minutes I found a huge variety of what I would call suitable costumes for children who are not yet teens.
 



Take a close look at these costumes - this one, a fisherman - could be put together basically from things in your own home. Just think creatively. 





and, there is also the "t-shirt" costume. Here are some possibilities along with some fun bags to use for holding treats when trick or treating.
