Remember, last fall, when Hubs thought I was grocery shopping but in actuality I was doing crafts in the front yard? It’s funny how I say front yard, as if implying I had a back one. Let’s be clear, I only had a front yard and now that I moved to an apartment, I have neither.
And since our apartment is 800 sq feet, I can’t justify buying or making anything new to satisfy my Halloween decor fix, except a pumpkin that I’ll be carving later. But, I did take a 5 minute break from catching up on Modern Family to rummage through stuff, gather up sticks and rocks from the property and arrange it all haphazardly on the mantel. Is it blog worthy, with balance and carefully woven design elements? No, but I’m going to show you anyway.
Do you think my stick is scary? Does that question make you feel weird, even though it shouldn’t? I added cobwebs too, but you can’t tell so should we all just admit that my spooky visions are grander than my execution? To top off this mantel mediocrity, I accidentally cracked the glass vase whilst ‘gently’ jamming rocks into the bottom. Hubs consoled me by telling me “It’s okay, we didn’t have room to store that thing anyway”.
In other news, I have another project up my sleeve, can you guess what it is? Don’t be shy.
