mi casa

we cut bats out of construction paper and put them inside the lampshade. the best part is that they are invisible till you turn the light on. it's like a super secret halloween suprise. i cannot draw, thank God for the boyf. idea via Young House Love

my turkey cookie jar. i am terrified of birds but i have a thing for vintage turkeys.

my thrifted yarn. i see poms in my future. isn't this the best color combo you've ever seen?

my turkey salt and pepper shakers. and my wee pumpkin is making a 2nd appearance.

I am getting really excited about Thanksgiving! I need a turkey lurkey from Bob's.

let my people go

Why does every single thing at Free People have to be so ...Needed. Needed in my closet, on my feet, keeping my ears warm with all its sparkly goodness. They have a pair of "White Rain" jeans. My white trashness def needs a pair of those!

its a skirt, it a dress, its a skirt. i love clothes as bipolar as me.

and i want those shredded leggings. minus the nightmare on elm street.

to wear with my white rain jeans.

i am not a good "dresser upper". this would make my holey jeans & boots look glammed out.

All the girls are getting pretty sprayin’ on the White Rain

And they have Pumpkin pancakes on their blog. Fashion & syrup. Bananas.

In Case Of Emergency Breakdance, originally uploaded by mooosh ♥ miso funky.

a gi-gund-ous pile of crochet.
I have thought gigundous (aka humongous) was a normal word until my boyf told me otherwise. I still use it- evidently. And in my defense it is in the urban dictionary.

my wee pumpkin & some marshmallow ghosts.

the boyf brought me home this wee pumpkin. isn't she cute? when we were little my Mom used to paint pumpkins (2 big, 3 little) to look like our family & set them on the mantle. Mine always had red hair & freckles. Miss that.

how rad is this sweet cake with marshmallow ghosts?
the recipe from Martha

The Letter P

Today's Post is sponsered by the letter P. Some things that are making me smile today.

P is for Posh Squash aka hand-dyed velvet pumpkins. Kits to make your own can be found at Olive Juice & Co. found via Danielle Thompson at her blog, Thompson Family Life.

And I love the names of the hues they come in. So happy & "fall-ish".

And ever since I made Christina's rehearsal bouquet with yarn pom poms, I am a bit pom-crazed. I saw this picture at Bluebird Vintage today & decided it's going to be a pompom Christmas!

Kraft paper, poms, & a white tree. Now all I need is a new Polaroid camera & some film in one of those boxes! (pompom pictures orginally from rachel denbow.)

Monday Finds

I had to take a vacation day from work because my car decided to stop running. I caught up on my reader and these are some of my favorite finds from my inspiration folder.

Isn't this poster from creative neesh adorable? Russian nesting dolls are one of my obsessions this month.
