I did a stupid thing today. I went to Martha Stewart online. She has this countdown to Halloween where she'll e-mail (I say that as if she's the one who actually e-mails) a new idea for Halloween every day. Well, sign me up! Who cares that it's 90 degrees today? What's it matter that I have a sunburn from mowing the lawn? Bring on the holiday decor!
Anyone remember this from Pottery Barn's fall catalog last year? Uh, yeah. Me too. They had these "boo" letters framed last year, and I couldn't find a picture of them anywhere. I think it might be on that shelf area to the right.
I found this, though. I love holiday decorations that just blend into your existing decor! I want it to say Happy Halloween without being too, you know, halloween-y. I said weeny.
What I love about Martha's stuff (besides everything) is how it can be done by us. She may pay a pretty penny for her special stock of supplies, but we can duplicate, right? I buy the Halloween edition of her magazine every year. If I had ANY idea how to scan a picture, I would show you my favorites. For now, you'll just have to go with what I found on the web.
