Walk Into My Parlor


<><><><><>

Walk Into My Parlor
By Mary Howitt
"Will you walk into my parlor?"
said the spider to the fly;
"Tis the prettiest little parlor that you ever did spy.
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair,
And I have many curious things to show when you are there."
"Oh no, no!" said the little fly,
"to ask me is in vain;
For who goes up your winding stair
can never come down again."


If you have the channel Chiller available to you check out their special Chiller 13: Horror’s Creepiest Kids and if you miss it tonight I believe they are repeating it on Monday.
Spooky fun!

Monday Pretties....

Fun Halloween decorations. I really love the black and white plates.

Great pumpkin lanterns. I need to save a few to paint orange.

I want to do this for Halloween! I love Sylvia Ji's work.

Vintage Halloween images like this are the best!

Halloween treats! They look great displayed this way.

I can not wait for Halloween to get here!

I Feel Fancy....

Why you might or might not ask?

Because I got this new phone
The HTC Inspire and I gotta say I love it!
It was a refurb phone, so I only paid $19.99! for my new phone.

I also purchased this lovely phone cover

Any suggestions for must have apps?
Send me a tweet.

The Weekend Was Good....

It started Friday afternoon. I had a mini lunch date with my Mom and baby brother.
We had breakfast for lunch, which I think is always yummy!


This is what my meal looked like. I was just too excited that I forgot to snap a picture of my actual meal. :( Especially because I had my new phone in my pocket.

Saturday I got these lovelies from Avon

Love 'em!

I worked on this new project
I can't even tell you how many projects before this one I started and took apart.
Sometimes if the pattern is too simple and tedious, I'll find myself getting bored.
But this pattern varies every row.

I organized my starred items in my google reader by pinning them to my Pinterest boards.
Feels great to have that stuff I was saving for some reason or other to now be divided into manageable groups.
Now I just wanna settle in with my crochet, coffee and finally get to The Walking Dead season premiere, Boardwalk Empire and Dexter episodes waiting for me on the DVR.

Pretty Opal to celebrate October.

Such an enchanting print named Opal.

Love this polish! I wonder how it would look layered over a darker color.

Hope my Swap Partner doesn't see this...

Well I did mail it out last week, so she should have received it by now.




Halloween is definitely my FAVORITE!
So I had a lot of fun hunting Halloween items for this Blythe swap.
My favorite find was the witch hat hair clips from the dollar store.
Of course the Hello Kitty plushie is cute too!
Can't wait to see what goodies we get, I'll share once they get here!
