Halloween is coming! And a tribute to my buggie

This is definitely my favorite time of year! I love the cool weather, the changing of the leaves, pumpkin spice... everything, and Halloween! I'm not the only one in my family that loves it, check out some of the decorations my mom put out last week!

She's building a graveyard too, can't wait until it's done! My daily food intake usually consists of Starbucks caramel apple spice and the Market Pantry pumpkin spice mini cupcakes from Target these days. I'm in love.

If you've never had a Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks you are missing out on liiiiffffe! :) Anyone else love it?

Oh and another thing I just started reading Ellen's new book Seriously...I'm Kidding. She is hilarious I've never laughed this much reading a book. I highly recommend it!

My mixer and bucket are free from grout! My dad attacked the bucket with a hammer and released them! Thanks Dad!

Thank you to everyone for the feedback on the black table! I appreciate it! This weekend I went to the Scituate Art Festival with two of my best friends Michelle and Jess (Check out Michelle's blog : Make-up your mind) Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures because we arrived late and wanted to see as much as we could before they shut down, but we did see a lot of great things! I only found one other craft maker that used plates for her art! She made them into necklaces and pins (but charged wayyy to much in my opinion) Though I did chat with her about what tools she used and so on. She also used a Dremel (best invention ever) Her necklaces and pins gave me some inspiration for a new piece. More on that later!

This week I've been working on some pieces in remembrance of my best friend Jessie. Pictures to come!

I've done a couple fun things in my room... but first meet my two helpers:

 Foxy Lady Gaga and Beyonce they love hanging out in my room :)

Well first I raised my bed 9 inches from the floor, which gives me more space for storage underneath my bed. The extra height also gives depth to my room and creates a nook for my bed area. In place of a headboard, on my wall I put some photos and some chandelier decals I found at Christmas Tree Shops along with a mirrior from Homegoods.

Now just to give you an idea of my room, it's black and white with colorful accents. So on the back of my door (which is painted black) I used decorative duct tape that I found at Target and made some vertical stripes:

I absolutely love the way it came out! What does everyone else think?

Also about 8 months ago I crashed my beloved VW Buggie named hum-v-dub :( That car was my baby, but before he got taken away from me I managed to get the emblems off of the rims. I've had them laying around for a while and wanted to do something creative with them.

 The shape and holes in them made it easy to hang them on the wall and weave some flowers into them (the same flowers I had in the vase of my bug)

R.I.P. Hum-V-Dub mommy misses you <3

That's all for now loves! Hope you enjoyed reading!


  1. I love the flowers in the hum-v-dub rims! The little bit of color looks great up against the black and really sticks out!
    I agree with Fall and Halloween! I love it all! :) Can't wait to see all your pictures to come
