reduce, reuse...

Believe it or not we've had tree branches falling in our little yard in paradise and, well geesh, I don't think anyone has ever been so very excited to have a Fall like mess of a yard to clean, but the fallen tree branches along with a warm pumpkin spice latte, well, they make the pretending it isn't so darn humid, and not very fall"ish" at all, all the more easy to do and, yeah, I'm a happy girl.  

So, well, here ya go an earth friendly and I dare say so myself, an oh so lovely treat bag for Halloween party favors, fall gifts and such.


brown paper lunch bags
Twine or other natural string
1 large stick, 
The more twisted and knotted the better.
(The size really depends on how witchy you're feelin')

Simply fill the bag with treats and, perhaps, a trick or two.  

Wedge that witch of a stick between the candies and toad legs and eye of newts and such, I don't judge, so that it sits firmly in the center.  

Using twine, wrap the bag tightly closed around the stick. 

 Embellish as you please, I glued one of the sparkly spiders we made here on to just the simplest of cards.  And...

If the broom fits, well... ride on.

live sweet, 


Oh, and hey, remember that one week in October when Monday felt like Wednesday and so I posted Wordless Wednesday's post two days early, good times.
