Life should be so simple that we could spend every day playing with dishes and visiting with friends and family.

Outdoor & Watery Wednesday
Today I am double posting in two fun blog events. Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by our great hostess Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. Many bloggers join her event each week to share some of their adventures, scenery shots, gardens, or just anything that is in the great outdoors. Be sure to click the link and visit all these great sites for some cyber fun. My new friend 2sweetnsaxy at Watery Wednesday also host this wonderland with photos of watery things for us to enjoy. Be sure to visit both site and all the links to each. Remember we all love comments so let us know that you have stopped by today. Ooops, I didn't realize that this was so old, but the sunsets haven't changed much on the lake. They are still gorgeous and so relaxing to watch at the end of a fun filled day on the water.
Be sure to stop by Playing Dishes this Saturday for the second Christmas in July Tablescape Party. I've heard from quite a few who are planning to participate this week since there isn't a holiday conflict. Mr. Linky will be up on Friday night.
Since it is CIJ and very hot for most of us, you could set your Christmas table on the porch, by the pool or pond or even take it to the lake for some variety! Come help make this a memorable and fun CIJ event. Remember there is a giveaway on July 25. The info is on my sidebar.
Thanks to both of our wonderful hostesses for these events.
Welcome to my blog. I made a Christmas blog to share photos of my holiday decor with some cyber friends. However, I didn't keep posting after the holidays and decided that I liked it as a special tribute to my favorite time of the year. I intended to post on it monthly on Rudolph Day on the 25th of each month, but life got in the way and I haven't posted since December. I am a Christmas nut and really plan and celebrate it all year long.
During the fall I found a holiday forum on Garden Web and started visiting there in addition to my two holiday favorite sites Our Home for the Holidays and Magical Holiday Home. The wonderful people over at GW got me hooked on dishes and tablescapes. I even me a few of the same members on the HGTV decorating forums and have been following their blogs all year.
I finally decided that I wanted to participate in blog land and not just read and look, so here I am. I am hoping to participate in Tablescape Thursday, Foodie Friday, and some of the other fun things I look forward to seeing weekly.
I hope I can figure out Mr. Linky and all the other things that I have been reading about. This is all new to me and I am a bit overwhelmed. But, I am here and ready to have even more fun as a participant.
I love the holidays and decorating for them. I have always been a Christmas nut and have enjoyed the fall and Halloween, but never to an extreme. This year, I decided to host our first Boo Bash, Halloween Cosume Party and have found a new love!
I named this blog Haven Haunt as a contridiction of the term haven, which is where the name of where I live. Since it is for Halloween, I decided on Haven Haunt.
I have been married for 36 years and have one adult daughter and one son, who is in Heaven. We have a Mini Pin dog, named Duke and a Daushund, who just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past summer.
