Halloween... Come on in if you dare!

Come on into the Acorn Cottage... 

The living room is filled with Halloween delights such as ghoulish framed ancestors, painted pumpkins, and scary skulls. I do my best to keep the Halloween as classy as I can. I often search for and purchase unique items that cannot be found at Party City, Walmart, Target, or the like.















The hand painted pumpkins are a new find this year. They were actually found by J on his trip down Magazine Street when his mother and sister visited last month. The designs go well in the living room especially with the blue and white ginger jars.

Halloween Living, y'all!

PUNny Skeleton House

It's not a complete Halloween experience without an annual stop at the Skeleton House on the corner of State Street and St. Charles Avenue. The addition of new skeletons along with some old favorites makes for an interesting and spooktacular display. It is a sight to be seen when in New Orleans. 

Enjoy!

Grand Hotel is on my mind....

Yep! Fall break is over, and I am back to yet another week of school. But I did enjoy my time spent in one of my favorite places, the Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa in Point Clear, AL. 

J & I did exactly what I wanted..... relaxed!!!! Spending our days laying by the adult pool sipping libations, eating in the resort restaurants/bars, and sharing nightcaps made for a perfect Fall holiday.

Here are some of my favorite pics of our stay:
















The sunsets over Mobile Bay are outstanding!

A number of readers have asked me to give details about the resort. J and I do not have kids, so we do not do "kid things". Your best bet would be to study the resorts website. When on vacay, J & I do our best to stay away from the kiddos (and their inattentive parents).

Fall Break, y'all!
