A Touch of Christmas

8 Dec

Post by: Katie

I haven’t gone all out for Christmas decorating this year but I have added little touches around my place to make it feel like the holidays!

I replaced the black & white balls I normally have in this coffee table bowl with some glittered pine cones and ornaments.

I got a tiny Poinsettia, that was already glittered, from Trader Joe’s.

With Liz’s expert help I put up my Christmas tree!!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!

I’m a Hallo-weenie

20 Oct

Because I don’t like scary or gory things, Halloween for me doesn’t consist of haunted houses or scary movies. You would think that because I am a Scorpio the dark and mysterious side of me would love all this stuff. Nope. I would probably have a heart attack if I went to a haunted house and last Halloween I went to a friends (really cute) Halloween party and thought I could be brave enough to watch scary movies. I got through The Crazies just fine, I tried to play it cool by looking away for the icky parts and sometimes just broke down and put my hands over my eyes. But then… they put on The Exorcism of Emily Rose. That upset me for about a month. That night I made a friend come sleep with me because I was too afraid to even go into my bedroom. So this Halloween I am going to stick to my normal routine of putting out pretty and “friendly” decorations and watching Hocus Pocus.

The shiny black pumpkin is the one I picked up from the pumpkin patch. The blingtastic other two are from Michaels (fakies) so I rhinestoned them and will be pulling them back out next Halloween. It took a little while and I suffered a few hot glue gun burns but I really like the way they turned out.

Z Gallerie is one of my favorite stores and I love these spiders.

The BOO letters were another craft. Black and white and glitter all over! The skeleton hand is another spooky gem from Z Gallerie.

Hocus Pocus is also my all time favorite sick movie. Such a classic.
