Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice

Happy Halloween!

Today I want to share a quick and easy treat!

I love the way these look laying about on the table.

They aren't too spooky 

and you gotta love the ears and tail!

This is what you need:

A bag of Hershey Kisses
A jar of Marachino Cherries with stem
Sliced Almonds
Chocolate Bark

In a microwave melt chocolate bark. I used white and dark chocolate. Dip cherry in melted chocolate and set on wax paper. Lean a chocolate kiss on the cherry and place two almonds in between to make the ears and let cool. That's it! Make as many as you want.

Scatter then around the table at your party so they can be picked up and eaten by the tail of course!

The kids will love it!


Enjoy your day!

Lady Baltimore Fall Arrangement

Halloween is fast approaching and they are calling for rain!

Poor little trick or treaters!

I was hoping to greet them with this sweet arrangement.

One thing I love about this time of year are all the pretty fall colors. Whether it is Halloween or not, pumpkins can be used through Thanksgiving!

That is why I decided to make the Owl Succulent Pumpkin.

I wanted to use my Lady Baltimore Luggage!

Are you confused? Read on....
