Howliday Thursday

Here is my last Halloween entry for the season.  Check out the rest of my collection here.  I've had a lot of fun gathering ideas from all over the bloggosphere.  There are many many things that go bump in the night out there, so beware!!

Tulle, Tulle, Tulle!

What separates the cool costumes from the truly divine?? Tulle, yards of tulle!!




And Ninjas. Definitely can't forget the Ninjas.

Rats! I Missed the Northern Lights.

Apparently last night there was a fabulous show of the northern lights.  Of course, I never looked out my window. There should be a phone tree to alert the clueless and I want to be at the top of that list.  Wait. . .that came out wrong.  So here is a few examples of other natural showiness.  What, you thought I'd show some night time celestial fireworks.  Humph, I'm still bitter.

Amazing Talent

I found this amazing video.  It was filmed for the Chloe Spring 2011 collection.  I just love the movement.  I can't imagine the time and effort it takes to get to this level of dancing.  Oh and the ballerina is wearing clothes from Chloe.  So beautiful

Last Weekend

Once again I had another crazy week.  Amber came up with the kids with the hope of some fall fun.  We usually go to the Applefest in Charlevoix and the corn maze in Atwood.  The weather did not cooperate, we had a rainy and cold weekend.  So we went to an orchard and bought donuts, cider and apples.  Back home at the condo there was a Lego building fest and a Yo Gabba Gabba marathon.

Howladay Thursday

Candy Corn is my favorite Halloween candy of all time.  It's too bad that it is only in season in October!  I love it mixed with peanuts. I made a batch for book club this week.  I had to bring the extras to school today or else I would have eaten every last piece.  I have collected a group of candy corn ideas you might enjoy.  I just love the little dress.

Zebra Prints

Boy I haven't blogged in ages.  I had a busy weekend with Amber and the kids.  they came up for Homecoming and the Apple Fest.  We had really crummy weather so we cancelled the outside activities.  We still had a great visit though.  Work has been crazy busy this week.  I decided to take the time tonight to check in again.  I found some very cool zebra prints.  I love this design.  I have a small chair in my bedroom with a zebra print seat.  I also have a zebra raincoat.  Aren't the pictures below pretty?

Chevron

I have been noticing chevrons around the interwebs on design blogs.  I love the exuberance of the pattern.  It's full of movement isn't it?  I especially like it done up in bright colors.  Enjoy the samples below.
