Quick & Easy Last Minute Halloween Projects

Just checking in so you know I haven't left the country. I've been home sick with a nasty cough and cold all week long. That means being stuck on the couch with a box of Kleenex and a variety of meds to get me through.The silver lining in this?...I get to watch a lot of daytime TV that I don't ever watch otherwise. With Halloween just a day away there are many shows pushing last minute décor and costume ideas. This morning on the Today Show Martha Stewart made an appearance wearing colored contact lenses and fake teeth. I have to say, Martha is so much more likeable since she spent time 'away'. If  you need to get your Halloween groove on but have let the week get away from you, just click here to get some great project ideas. Happy Halloween!

Painted Fall Leaves

I know, I know.............it's not even Halloween yet and I'm already talking about Thanksgiving. But I thought these painted leaves were so inspiring, and I wanted to share this with you so you can gather leaves before they all fall off and blow away. Here are painted leaves found on Pinterest and Apartment Therapy.

Something Blue

In the last two days I've have two emails alerting me to a top trend color for weddings for 2015: Blue. Cobalt weddings are on the trend radar on Etsy's blog, and BHLDN, Anthropologies' wedding site, is calling out various shades of blue for bridesmaids dresses. If you are planning a wedding in 2015, you may want your 'something blue' to be color theme.

Pop of Pottery

 
I was flipping through the fall 2014 Cloth Paper Scissors Studios magazine recently and absolutely was knocked over by this photograph of the pottery from Luna Garcia Pottery. It is so visually appealing! While each of these pieces are individually beautiful, when presented in a grouping like this, they make such a strong and dramatic statement! Great eye candy!

Leather Fringe

 
The 70s... one of my favorite decades for fashion is making another appearance. Hotter than ever is the bohemian style that includes flowing dresses, moccasin boots, tie-dye, and leather fringe. The runways at Milan's Spring 2015 Fashion Week were all about the 1970s and music festival dressing.
 
Leather fringe accessories can be found at retailer like Free People and Etsy, while P.S. I Made This... gives a tutorial for creating your own leather skirt.

Hair Tapestry Trend

This is the perfect example of taking one trend and pairing it with another. (1) The fiber arts trend - weaving, knitting, crochet, macramé, etc., - is hot for the home. (2) Women are increasingly incorporating artful decorations to their crowning glory. Put these two together, and POOF! Hair tapestries...
 

Created by Bleach London hair guru Alex Brownsell, hair tapestry blends together traditional hair wrapping with woven techniques from friendship bracelets and loom bands.
