COOL STUFF, my spookies....
It's flannel sheet time! (found these at Target for J ~ super soft, great weight.)
These DIY Halloween lights are fantastic.
Saw this on Apartment Therapy -- Caldecott DVD collection! (all of the Scholastic videos are fabulous)
Cute little playhouse bed.
There is nothing in this world like a New England fall.
Ghostly coconut-covered apples.
Speaking of apples, check out this very handy cheat sheet about apples and baking.
Did you know there was such a thing as glitter tape? I NEED MORE GLITTER!!!
Love this vintage Halloween garland. And pillow! (Both from Bethany Lowe)
Very cool (and easy) way of making a Halloween t-shirt.
Cool Book of the Week: 'Nightsong' by Ari Berk and Loren Long is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I wasn't expecting such a tale of lyric and haunting loveliness, with such heart stirring art. Yes, I just called a book about a bat heart stirring. It's not a Halloween book, although the bat and dark earth tones used throughout lend themselves perfectly to this season. But what really got to me was the premise...a little bat takes his first flight, without his mama. He's scared and unsure about how far away he should go. He has a glorious time testing the boundaries of leaving his home for the 1st time, but is happy to return home again at dawn to his mommy. The prose....it's like a poem. The art...it's like visual music. You have to see this one.
Have a lovely weekend!! Cider and movies and pumpkin pancakes. That's what's happening this weekend. Also a ton of rain is supposed to come see us. (It hasn't rained here in about 80 days! It's been some kind of miraculous miracle!)
