On March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico. The Alamo, which had been under siege since February 23, would fall four days later, but the Republic of Texas would win its independence on April 21, 1836 at the Battle of San Jacinto.
Here’s the short list of things that I love about Texas.

I love decorating as most of you do know. With the weather changing and harvest season upon us, what better way to welcome autumn than with rich hues of yellow, red and orange. A simple and cost effective way to get into the spirit is to creatively decorate with pumpkins and gourds. Whether you just mix and match a few out on your front steps or decide to go all out creatively, you’ll definitely have some festive decor to carry you from Halloween through Thanksgiving. Here are some of my favorite pumpkin design ideas to date.

These are all too cute. Can’t wait to get my hands dirty and start on some of these. First up, gilded pumpkins!

I’ve seen a lot of creative tea infusers lately. I love that the focus on design (or redesign for that matter) is creeping into the ordinary things in life and making them prettier. I thought the shark infuser had beautiful clean lines but this tiny yellow submarine just makes me smile — just in time for the spring.

If you’re a fan of Legos, I think you need these candles. Yes, they are stackable! My mind is already spinning with ideas.
