Valentine’s Day Soirée!

Someone like myself, who prefers Halloween to all holidays, watching documentaries about diseases, sharks and/or massacres, as well as the generally macabre aspects of life, may not truly appreciate the saccharine, heart-shaped miasma that is Valentine’s Day. I do, however, love a good theme. One I can really run with, like the goddess Diana, through…

Farewell, 2013!

Well, it’s almost the beginning of a new year! Welcome back to the office, if you’re at work again. (Sorry, I am, too.) Those of you still lolling around the house, go take a shower! Wash off the post-Christmas crust, and go have a drink with someone who isn’t in your family. For everyone: WHAT ARE…

Host the BEST Christmas Gathering!

We are down to the wire, people! If you are hosting a holiday party this year, now is the time to get going with the party planning! Unless you’re a lonely butler, chances are you know some people, and those people are likely to invade your house at some point during the month of December….

Gift Guides & DIY Inspiration!

Christmas is officially ONE WEEK AWAY! *Cue hysterical jingle bells* That means that if you haven’t put together a holiday ambiance at your home/desk/car, you should GET ON IT!

Today’s collection of things is pretty amazing! I’ve got a couple of Houzz articles to share about holiday decorating, some INCREDIBLE up-close shots of snowflakes, and a super inspiring project that involves mannequins! Yay, mannequins! Ok, so for those of you who haven’t thrown up the Christmas decorations just yet, Houzz has some simple ways…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yay for everyone’s favorite Fall themed Faux-Christmas! My feelings about all holidays not Halloween aside, Thanksgiving is a nice (albeit brief) reminder for us to appreciate what we already have, eat ENORMOUS piles of delicious food, and spend time with people we love! That being said, here are some hysterical vintage photos that will definitely…

Happy Veterans Day! – Let’s Talk Fall Centerpieces

First off, a resounding thank you to all the service men and women out there who have (for decades) dedicated their time and lives to the protection of our nation! Both of my grandfathers are WWII Navy veterans. My maternal grandfather just turned 91 years old this month! Veterans Day is a wonderful beginning to…

Halloween Costumes – Make One Already!

It’s almost OFFICIALLY Halloween, y’all!!! I am literally bursting at my seams (and various orifices) in anticipation of it! I know there are folks out there (sad and lonely) who haven’t already attended a multitude of Halloween parties this season, and so are still in desperate, last-minute need of a costume. Alternatively, there are folks…

Halloween Printable Freebies!

It’s Monday, and that’s a bummer, but you know what’s not a bummer?? The fact that Halloween is almost here!!! It is, by far and away, the best, most fun, hilarious, creepy, exotic and fascinating of all holidays, and my personal favorite. This past weekend marked the first Halloween soirée of the season! It was the…
