  1. HA! Your mom and my mom should hang out. Maybe you have to be a grandma before you perfect the cackle? Loving your 12 weeks of Christmas. Great idea!

  2. I love these! AND I loved your cute candy corn brownies! I am actually going to feature them tomorrow…so grab a button if you’d like!

    It was a fun costume, except no one really knew what it was. 🙂 A friend and I went as the same thing. You can get the shirt online, I think at HBO. I got mine at Hot Topic so they might have them online too. I got the green apron at an online restaurant supply (I googled “green apron”) and made the Merlotte’s logo using an iron-on. 🙂

  4. Hi I just joined your blog, love it. The little hats are so cute. Thanks for sharing Andi

  5. LOVE the True Blood idea! I need to order a Merlotte’s shirt for myself. Did you get it online?? That’s fitting. I was a waitress/bartender for wayyy too long in my college days.
    Cute witches’ hats!
