The Little Things

My wife has this wonderful way of making the little things around our house more fun and seasonal -- a little something extra she does to make things just that much more special.

Case in point: Halloween. It's one of our family's favourite celebrations. And it's not just the decorations that are put up, both inside and outside the house, but it's the little things, the extra touches, that make things special. It's the wonerful giant jack o lantern cookie jar in the kitchen, the Halloween hand-towels, dish cloths table runners and table cloths; it's the glow-in-the-dark spider-web pillow case on our bed, it's the festive tea-light holders. It's even the hand-soaps in our bathrooms.

Okay, the ghost and pumpkin hand-soaps are seasonal - the foamy frog soap is just a standard, year-round thing.  But, notice the "house of usher" style tea light holder in the background?

Yes, it's just another one of those little things that Francine invests into making things just a little extra special.

Little things that make a huge difference.
