Carving pumpkins and hanging twinkle lights

Alright, so I'm not the best with time management.
As a matter of fact, I don't mind a bit if all of my holidays
 blend together into one lovely little celebration.
So since it was awful and rainy outside tonight, 
I decided to stay inside to carve pumpkins and hang twinkle lights all over.
My mom thinks it's...festive? 
I think it's dreamy.

I'd like a lovely present tied up with ribbon on Sunday.
An apple crumb muffin on Saturday.
And layers upon layers of tutus at work everyday.
The lovely tea drinking english rose has honored me yet again by rewarding my little blog with this gift.
 I give it right back to you, dear. Because you deserve it everyday. 
I also would like to pass this along to coccinelle, intimate vignettes, and Una Bella Vita.

And last but not least, a little quote from a favorite movie, "You've Got Mail", to help with sweet dreams.

"Sometimes I wonder about my life.
I lead a small life.
Well, not small, but valuable.
And sometimes I wonder,
do I do it because I like it,
or because I haven't been brave?
So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book,
when shouldn't it be the other way around?
I don't really want an answer.
I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void.
So good night, dear void.

You always have such beautiful posts, with breathtaking pictures and delicate words!!
I love the fairy lights in your room- I want some to hang all around mine, since mine broke, because they just seem to give the room a much softer, more magical feel :)
I also love the pretty parcel, how wonderful it would be to recieve a gift like that!!
take care!

I know its not relavent but I liked your earlier post about the Ghost poem by Louisa May Alcott, I love her and I thought in a way it was a fitting tribute to her art.
