you're boo-tiful

a few last minute costume ideas.
punky brewster was my fav growing up.
{seriously I used to wear 5 pairs of slouchy missed matched socks at once.}
I am lusting after these bando hearts.
and that puffer vest is only $19.00 at ae

 Do you remember the cartoon? gloomer was my favorite.
{gloomer:creature known as a "leprechaun gopher" that came from a world at the end of the rainbow.} 

She-Ra princess of power

That gold pony might not be swift wind but its cute.
remember how pillowcases made awesome capes when you were growing up? they still do.
drinking large quantities of whiskey will make you feel like you have super powers.

Bonus: you can make your boyfriend/husband be He-Man
did you know he-man and she-ra were twins? weird.

or you could just be taylor swift.

I eat more sweets than a 5 year old.

mouthwatering monsters

cute cupcakes

the only kind of bats I will ever get close to

caramel apples with bling

nutter butter ghosts

whats your favorite Halloween candy/treat?

stuff i love

inspired by Danielle
here are a few pictures from around my house.

on the fridge.
-Juliette Lowe postcard
-star magnets from amish country
-Love Your Neighbor poster for Nashville flood relief
-picture of the fam in 1983. (I'm the littlest.)

ruffle shower curtain
and super soft martha stewart rug 
that I got for $10 because they had the signs posted wrong.

my Mammie E (great grandma Ethel) was the queen of quilt making.
These are 2 of my favorites.
The fabric on the left is amazing, I wish I could find some to make my own.
because I am afraid these will fall apart someday.
The quilt on the right was my mom's bedspread in 1st grade.

the corner cupboard in the kitchen.
teapot from my Mammie
the cardinal is a perfume bottle and it was my Mam-Maw's
teacup and saucer from a friends bridal shower
blue bird from Adena
 calf and thermos- both thrifted

lauren moffat is always amazing and  
her spring 2011 collection is all easter sunday and lace
with ruffles and rick rack thrown in.
the girly-ness of it all makes me want to
forgo the wedding and go straight to the honeymoon!

"For as long as I can remember there has been a dress hanging in my mother's closet. Although she wore it on her honeymoon, it continued to hang in her closet for decades. I kept thinking about how special that dress must have been for her to have kept it all those years. This collection is inspired by that dress."

don't you just love the pastels?
Betty Draper would have worn this on her honeymoon.
{and probably the new Mrs.Draper too}
