0 DIY Halloween | 7 Foot Alien Costume

Building Frankenstein proved to be quite a project for the good Doctor. What with all the nuts and bolts, the finding of matching arms and legs, the bad toupee and not even talking about the size 54 shirt that was impossible to find in a decent pattern. It was enough to make any sane monster builder just give up and go and just cut holes in an old sheet and go with that. Well, if only Dr.Frankenstein could have had access to this quick Halloween DIY monster (well, ok - alien), then maybe he could have wrapped up early and actually made a few houses before they turned the lights out and pretended not to be home - seriously, we know you ran out of candy, quit with all the hiding stuff.

0 Etsy Pick of the Day | Woodncut

Love these wooden pendants, key chains and rings,  all decorated by hand by Woodncut from Italy. Each item is unique and looks super-fun to hold.  Check them out on their Etsy shop here.

3 The Adaptable Monstera

Photo:  Poppytalk
In July we picked up this Monstera leaf (above) at a local florist (hello The Flower Factory)! We dropped it into some water only expecting it to live a week or so.  Here we are now in October and this leaf is still thriving and isn't giving us any sign it's going anywhere soon.  Needless to say, we're super-impressed! Totally worth the extra bit we paid for it and makes us even more a fan.  The Monstera, popular these past couple of years, is one of those plants that seems so adaptable, doesn't it? Whether it's in a modern space or bridal setting, the plant's large leaf adds a graphical punch and updates a space instantly. Now thinking of getting a full version, we set off for some inspiration.
