i’ve moved! check me out over at oh, bother. blog!
Holdy has celebrated her first Halloween with two events (and two costumes) so far this year:
For the Alice and Mad Hatter costume, I pulled out a 10-year-old Alice costume I had, dressed Holdy in some mismatched clothes and had my friends at HolyCraft make a super cute baby top hat.
The Robber/Moneybag costume was a Pinterest inspiration. I used one of Holdy’s sleep sacks that we already had. I cut a large dollar sign out of black felt and double-sided-taped it to the sleep sack. I printed out some $100 dollar bills from the internet and stuck them through a headband that went around Holdy’s head. Easy enough!
I saw this adorable pebble boot tray from Clean & Scentsible on pinterest and had to give it a shot in my house.
- black rubber shoe/boot tray (previously purchased from Lowe’s)
- assorted river rocks/stones/pebbles from the craft/floral section of Wal-mart (yuck, I know).
I didn’t bother with gluing down the stones, mostly because my tray sits underneath a table and I currently don’t have any little ones running around. Check it out:
So I’m super psyched about the new mirror in my entryway. The mirror itself is from Target, but I added a little special touch:
I ordered these fun mustache mirror clings from Amazon ($4!) and slapped one on:
I’m really into mustaches right now. I know that they’re the latest hipster thing, but I’ve always had an affinity for the ‘stache. Perhaps it’s because my dad has been rocking his since before I was born:
He shaved it once when I was seven. I cried.
Luckily, there’s TONS of cute ‘stache stuff out there right now:
From uVinyl on etsy
From Karriehillis on etsy
From LangtonStudio on etsy
From Eyval Decal on etsy
So I’m loving the ‘stache stuff. Let me know if you see any other cute mustaches around!
I got this photo tray from Target as a wedding gift and wanted to do something a little different with it:
I like the black & white photos but wanted to add some color and I thought color photos might look cheesy. Solution? Scrapbook paper!
