DIY costume

I think my Halloween costume this year is my favorite to date. I started looking through my closet to see what I could come up with and pretty much had everything to be a garden gnome. Green sweater, khaki vest, long jean short, bright blue tights (clearance at Target), and my sister's Ugg boots. I made a pointy red felt hat, purchased some eyebrowns and a grey beard (which I wanted to make out of grey fur but Joann did not have any). and Violia! A gnome.

Eleanor Grosch

Ah! Have you seen this line of fabroc from Eleanor Grosch called Zoo Menagerie? I just saw it on True Up and fell in love. I think the tiger print is my favorite. This also brings me to Eleanor's website which showcases her wonderful artwork. It is so fresh and fun...I could spend a while on there and want all of her prints. Go check it out.

Halloween Spirit

The month of October is fabulous. The weather is changing and you get to decorate for Halloween! This year my favorite decoration I made were bleeding candles. I bought some premade ones at the store but then realized I needed more. And of course Martha had it on her website...much more economical and super easy.

Oh tape again...

I heart this optical illusion tape. I think if I ordered every decorative tape I have spotted I would be in heaven....and in a room full of just tape.

This weekend I am going camping! And cannot wait. Seriously I wish it were tomorrow. With that said, I am trying something new this year...spiked hot apple cider. Doesn't that just say fall to you. And being I am going to make it I need a fancy thermos to drink out of.

Look at this awesome wine glass!

And espresso cup. I heart. But they are metal I will probably burn my hands. Any suggestions?
