Something super exciting now. Halloween. As you know I start shopping the moment Halloween merch is available. You recall my "sinkventure" at Lowe's. I found myself stopping into Michael's craft store last night on my way to the salon. Mistake. I didn't find what I needed. Instead I found this:
Make no mistake. I want every piece they manufacture for an elaborate Halloween village. "But Autumn, your cats climb into wedding paraphernalia and pee in the sink, won't they ruin it?" to that I say "Shut up. I didn't ask you". But for reals... I have to have this. Surely there is somewhere in my house I can safely display these skeletons and goblins, right?
Frankenstein and Bride of? C'mon!! I would share more from their collection but Micheal's hasn't quite mastered the concept of having a well put togetherr website. It may be the worst site ever built. I didn't walk out with any of those pieces (but wouldn't that love swing be a GREAT start? for $24.99??). But I did purchase 2 wonderful different sized candle pillars. Black and mirrors etc. I'll share those closer to the decorating of the condo. It'll be more fun that way ;)
Now onto Pottery Barn. I didn't visit one yesterday but I did get a catalog with "Fall" merch and knew this meant Halloween was tapping on the door (read: bony skeleton fingers tapping on a locked dungeon door). Several things I will spend the next couple weeks telling myself I don't need...

GASP!!! Gorgeous, right?
And my favorite, which I will own...
Coolest table runner EVER
I worked at Pier 1 for a few years. My bosses would purposely leave the Halloween set up for me because it was my favorite. I'll check out what they've got this year and let you know. I got my bleeding candles last year though. What could top that?
Someday I will have a house that will be so obnoxiously Halloweened out, you'll be afraid to come over. Until this (below) is in my front yard scaring children...I won't be satisfied.
Now I need some candy corn...
