I heart Halloween

I have always loved Halloween.  I am getting excited just thinking about it.  I know I can't look for a costume this year because I will have a newborn and not be leaving the house, but I just love looking at images of Halloween, smelling the burnt wood smell in the air and feeling the spirit.

I am obsessed with Edward Gorey too...

The swankest nursery evah


Because its mine!  The room is finally finished and I couldn't be more thrilled.  It is exactly as I envisioned it.  I had a lot of help from creative blogs such as Odeehdoh which feature nursery tours and creative design ideas.  Its a great resource for interior ideas!  So here's the nursery in its glory.  Ain't it cute?

Halloween Crafts From Martha

I am sooooo excited for Halloween even though I'm basically missing the holiday altogether this year.  I love the sudden change of weather, the warming comfort foods associated with the fall season, the colors; gold, brown, orange, navy, pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, I love it all.  My sister and I always take a stroll through Stats, this craft store down the street to look at their yearly Halloween display.  Its usually pretty outrageous!  

I would call myself mildly crafty.  I am more craftalicious with food than raw materials.  I was on Marthastewart.com today and saw some cute projects that I think I could handle.  Check it...

Super cute for a Halloween dinner party. I've always wanted to have one! 

I'd keep these on my dining room table the whole month...

...next to these!

Glitter!  Goth and right in line with the fall trends of 2010...


What are YOU doing this season that's crafty and gets yourself into Fall?

I am so excited to fit into real normal cute clothes I could scream.  Here's some easy casual chic that I'd like to emulate, permitting I have the baby and can leave the house before Fall weather has passed.  Who am I kidding, I live in SoCal, its fall until June.
