A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Halloween decorating

After we visited the pumpkin patch we went full force into decorating for Halloween. I have way too many decorations for my space, so here is just a sampling of what I pulled out this year. My favorite thing to decorate with are pumpkins and gourds, so this "family" of pumpkins are just about too cute for words.

Over the years, I have taken countless fall photographs. I like to switch out the artwork in my house seasonally, so I filled them up with snapshots from past trips. These little white pumpkins are my favorite because they are versatile enough to take you all the way to Thanksgiving. (did I mention they are fake?)

 Even my air plant deserves a festive home for the holidays.
Note the conjoined pumpkin in the background. Cameron spotted it at the patch and we just had to have it.
One of the real show pieces of my Halloween decor, is this Halloween advent calendar my parents made for me a couple of years ago. Yep, they are pretty much the dynamic duo!!
The fun part about decorating is each item is filled with some memory. This fabric banner for example was made from fabric my mother in law gave to me when we visited a couple years ago.

What is your favorite item to decorate with for Halloween?
