Things to love this week… Halloween edition

I’m currently in the process of making Miss R’s Halloween costume. Yeah, I’m nuts. But, I can’t leave well enough alone… I have to go crazy and make it all myself. Ha! Hopefully I’ll have it done soon, and can share some photos with you next week. Yay! Last year I made R a fox costume out of an old jacket, sweater, and some felt. Awwww, she was so little!

Onto the links I love this week: Halloween edition!

Halloween twist on s’mores!

How much do cats actually kill?

Buried alive muffins!

Ummmm… this party dress is 6 bagbilliongillion dollars, but it’s cute!

Strawberry ghosts.

Pumpkin whoopie pies? Yes, please!

I love this monster wreath! So cute. You can find the tutorial here.

Zero the ghost dog!

Hanging pumpkin lanterns!

Painted pumpkins! I always prefer painting our pumpkins. They last longer too! You can keep them all the way through the New Year! I kid….

Halloween parfaits.

Cozy Coupe refashion… into the freakin’ bat mobile!

Mmmmm…. pumpkin walnut muffins.

Spiderweb door mat? Ok!

Pumpkin pretzels for the kiddo!

Empty bottle turned into witches brew!

Happy weekend to all of you! And, another little reminder: if you’re in the PNW… the last day to buy your Holiday Party ticket is coming up! Hope to see you there.
