I bought a green wire wreath builder thing, and some cute white glittery accessories. Saved the bottom row of branches from our X-mas tree and created a wreath. There was only one size for the wreath wire so I didn't have to use many branches at all. Nor did I use all of the white accessories, but this means I can make a bigger one next year! Yes! (more complaining, I can't turn this picture right side up!!!)

December also means going home to see family and friends. We just went to Delaware for Turkey day and made a trip to the beach with the pup. We have been doing this for over a year now, in both seasons but winter is probably my favorite. The wind is brisk and the water freezing. But Autumn puts her feet in and we still walk the whole beach! As always I carry WaWa coffee with me!! If only they had WaWa's in the south!!!

One of my best bowls recently was super hot and had local produce from my garden and my parents! It had four different kinds of peppers, tomato's, onions, lime and cilantro. The only thing not from a local garden were the limes and onions. Yes, yes I know you see canned tomato's, but don't worry I usually cut up an extra tomato too dull down the spice from the canned tomato's with peppers.
I put the tomato's in first, then dice up the onions and peppers to throw in. I use a chopper so they are diced up very small, no seeds for the jalapenos. Chop the cilantro a bit and squeeze the lime and set in the fridge for at least 30 min. And you have homemade salsa. And any tortilla chip will do!This particular bowl was super spicy for Halloween and had to have a warning label for the weak!

My garden has been growing out of control this summer! It just recently started to wind down. The squash, zucchini and cucumbers are about gone but the Maters and peppers are thriving! A few pics of our fruits of labor!
I also started saving some compost under the sink and added some of that juice to the remaining tomato's and peppers!
The fried green maters were wonderful, something I will make again! I can not take credit for the green tomatoes though, and yes, aren't they huge! I staked my best friends tomatoes (cause he had not yet!) and knocked a few off. So I decided not to waste them and try my hand at frying!
Finished Product! Oh so yummy! And I fried them in EVOO so they were slightly healthier.

I wanted a brown accent wall in the house somewhere, so I went for the bedroom since the accent wall was already there. And I am not one for blue especially that dark of a blue. We painted the wall brown, bought new night stands from Target and used the same bedding and curtains we had from Bub's Graduation gift. We also found the dresser at a yard sale for 30 bucks. Gotta love the yard sale finds! The lamps and mirror are capiz a new shell material I became obsessed with!

I was told this weekend by a real seamstress that using a hot glue gun to attach the ribbons would be sufficient. So that is what I will be doing! Easy peasy!
