Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Any of these kids costumes could be upsized to = adult (besides the last one...reverse the logic...perhaps minus the rod for safety?!)

More pumpkin decorating ideas!

Here are a bunch (40 to be exact) pumpkin decorating ideas from the Country Living website. There are some really creative ones I like. Skeleton Hands (pictured below), Great Balls of Fire, Pumpkin City and Pumpkin Tower are some of my favorites. Enjoy browsing and happy pumpkin-ing!

P.S. The great thing about this website is that free printable templates are included (could be used elsewhere, not just for pumpkins)!

Painted Pumpkins

Just because you're not into carving pumpkins doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun of displaying festive pumpkins on your front step or in the window at halloween. I love these painted pumpkins. They are festive and cool. If the idea of painting an entire big pumpkin white turns you off, you could go always go for few smaller gourds (less to paint) or simply purchase a pumpkin that isn't orange (have you seen those black and white pumpkins?)...

So chic. From here.

A poem a day...

If you like poetry have a poem sent directly to your inbox each day.
You can sign up here.

Today's poem (from here):

From Out the Cave
When you have been
at war with yourself
for so many years that
you have forgotten why,
when you have been driving
for hours and only
gradually begin to realize
that you have lost the way,
when you have cut
hastily into the fabric,
when you have signed
papers in distraction,
when it has been centuries
since you watched the sun set
or the rain fall, and the clouds,
drifting overhead, pass as flat
as anything on a postcard;
when, in the midst of these
everyday nightmares, you
understand that you could
wake up,
you could turn
and go back
to the last thing you
remember doing
with your whole heart:
that passionate kiss,
the brilliant drop of love
rolling along the tongue of a green leaf,
then you wake,
you stumble from your cave,
blinking in the sun,
naming every shadow
as it slips.
"From Out the Cave" by Joyce Sutphen, from Straight Out of View. © Beacon Press, 1995.

Halloween is coming!

If you're not into carving pumpkins a bunch of these would look good in the front window for Halloween. They remind me of spider webs. From here.

How To: Braided Bun

I love the idea of a messy up do when it comes to hair. Since it's a hot look right now, why not experiment with your own hair? If it turns out great you may get asked where you get your hair done, in which you can reply, "Ohhh (pause) this old thing??? I did it myself." GEnIUs (said in a singing voice!).

Get the how to, along with other good ones, from here.

My hair isn't this long but...I could manage the side braid with a side bun - still cute!
