Halloween Hair Couture

It's that time of year again! Time to grab your glue gun and get your Halloween bling on!
I grabbed a stash of ribbons, an orphaned flower and other miscellaneous stuffies {including Whoppers and Milk Duds : ) }

Sure she's cute, but every girl can use a little glitter mist and some sparkles

I pulled the plastic center out of my flower and removed a few layers of pedals- then ate that glitterie Milk Dud {i have no shame}

A shot of black spray paint and a dusting of black glitter, cuz glitter makes everything better {so do Milk Duds} Right?

I hot glued some ribbons to the underside, then added a hair clip.

Glued on my shiny sweetie, and...

Ba-ling! Halloween hair couture!

Here she'll wait till Monday

How are you haunting your Thursday?

Every trip up to our Northern nest takes us past beautiful farm land. We've watched it bud green in the spring, flourish in the summer, and go golden in the fall.

Fall is definitely my favorite.

Every trip up North, takes us past this abandon house. What is it about old, neglected houses that makes me want to rescue them?

I love the curtains in the front porch window... with no door knob...or porch

She just needs some love! Maybe a nice coat of paint {and floors, and windows, and a new foundation...and plumbing}

The lawn looks to be in good shape! That's a plus, right?

Look at all that yummy architectural detail {and that random wire, huh }

There's an amazing barn- i could finally have my cows and chickens! {after a bit of patch work}

And look, i could even have my own craft cottage!
Bonus pallets! Score!

O.K Time to get back in the car, quit trespassing, and just drive.
