I’m almost certain that Aldi’s is pumpkin spice heaven. They have managed to sneak that ubiquitous fall flavor into everything! I was checking out earlier this week and I was completely sucked in by a display of pumpkin pizzelle. If you’re familiar with me you know I have no control around fall flavors. My fridge is still full of the fall beer that led to my pumpkin gingerbread.
I’ve had a weird thing for blood this year, lot’s of creepy bloody ideas in my head this year! First up is a set of do-it-yourself bleeding Halloween candle holders. The frost glass and shiny blood combine with the flickering candle light to offer up a warm glow Morticia Addams would certainly approve of.
I received the paint used in this project as part of the DecoArt blogger outreach program.
Halloween is almost here and if you’re like me you are scrambling for a costume idea. Lucky for you I’m here to help with my good friend Amazon Prime. If you’re outside the loop that means you can get all this stuff delivered to your door in two days if you’re a prime member. This post is not sponsored by Amazon but they are affiliate links. If you use them I’ll get a small amount that I can use to buy giant spider rings. My default costume over the years has always been a witch (or ladybug but we’ll leave that alone for now!). It’s a classic choice for a reason. A witch costume is recognizable, easy and there are a million ways to make it your own.
On Saturday Mary finally had her dream birthday party. We had her Halloween spider party at the town park; despite a very wet and dreary start to the day the weather tuned around and it ended up being a beautiful day. We had spiders and spider webs everywhere, even on the cake and taco dip! Irving the spider pinata made another appearance and everyone had a great time.

Even though Mary’s birthday is in late November we’re having her party in early October. Last year she had a generic Halloween party (with the worlds best spider pinata). She’s going to be 4 this year and she’s got a lot of opinions now! I loved having her help planning the party this year. She decided on a spider party, with a blue cake. What can I say? The kid loves Halloween! Mary has also been waiting impatiently to make some spider invitations. [Read more…]
