Happy Retro Halloween

Take a listen to what is reported to have caused panic the evening before Halloween in 1938.

The War of the Worlds is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on October 30, 1938, and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H.G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds (1898).
The first two thirds of the 62-minute broadcast were presented as a series of simulated news bulletins, which suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Compounding the issue was the fact that the Mercury Theatre on the Air was a show that ran without commercial breaks, adding to the program's realism. There were sensationalist accounts in the press about a supposed panic in response to the broadcast.

Cat Ears

Cats are a hot motif lately. You see them on t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, etc. There are prints and patterns of cats on leggings, tops, and accessories. And then there are all the cat ears I keep seeing. Need a quick costume? Cat ears! Although I think this cat ear trend wasn't necessarily meant for Halloween. Take a look...

Glitter Stem Pumpkin!

Happy Friday! Yesterday I had a plain, albeit gorgeous, white pumpkin in my office. I rarely get time to get crafty at work, even though I am surrounded by fabulous craft products. But yesterday I was told that my computer needed to be serviced so I had about twenty minutes to kill while I waited. Hmmm...what to do? I decided my little pumpkin needed some glitter love! I walked over to our creative department and picked up some Aleene's Tacky Glue, some Tulip Fashion Glitter, and a round brush. I brushed the entire stem with the glue, sprinkled on the glitter, and voila! In less than two-minutes, my plain little pumpkin was dazzling!

The Ongoing Owl Trend

I thought foxes were the new owls? Turns out, owls are the new owls - they are the woodland critter that just won't fly away. Owls continue to be everywhere - Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, West Elm, World Market - and they can be found on t-shirts, as jewelry, cookie jars, candles, votives, pumpkins, Christmas ornaments (Yes, Christmas ornaments!), coffee mugs, iPhone cases... you name it - it probably comes in an owl version.
