Something that's REALLY scary...

In keeping with all things spooky and a bit adrenaline inducing this month, I share with you the house we bought this past weekend. 


Yes, I know it all looks like one room, but I assure you it's not. We bought a LOT of red. And faux brick wallpaper. 

If I can't pull this into the 21st century, I need a new profession. :)

Halloween Chic

Halloween is just around the corner and I've noticed SPOOKY decor popping up all around our neighbourhood. Here are a few items I would choose to create a chic yet festive Halloween vignette in my entry...

1 - This adorable bat print on vintage French dictionary page looks sophisticated & scientific to me! $12 
2 - These ivory, orange and black poison bottles would look great (and ironic) with a single flower $15 for 3
3 - Random body parts arranged in a pretty bowl are always eery $20
4 - This skull stopper is super adorable and would look great plugging a plain bottle $18
5 - Love the subtle-spook that these "Devilish" titles provide, and they are beautiful shades of orange too! $42

Can you believe we are halfway through October already?!

October is here...

...and you know what that means - Halloween is around the corner!

I never used to be a big Halloween person, I still am not. However, having a 2 year old forces me to think up a costume. And because I'm a crazy, over-think-the-details-designer-mum, I am feeling the pressure to design a cute costume for my darling daughter. 

How can I possibly out-do my creation from last year?  She was the sweetest lil' owl I've ever seen!

Here's to one October sewing project!
