zombie cupcakes!

I feel like I've seen this somewhere before, but I recently came across a copy in a craft store near my house and had to try (really hard) not to spend my hard earned cash on it. Maybe I'll put it on my Halloweeniversary list...

sweet dreams...

Have you been to Lazybone? Definitely check it out for any unique gift ideas. It's where I found these, from Pop Pillows.


I would beg all my out of town friends to visit just so I could have them sleep on these!

ohhh, skull scarf!

Going through another knitting/crocheting phase over here. And whilst searching webland, I came across this awesome skull illusion scarf from Ysolda.

AND it's pink and orangish! That got me to thinking...there have got to be more of these knitted skulls out there...right? Hmmm...check it out.




This Dark Mark Scarf is awesome! From Storm Moon Knits.




How about this jumper for baby?





Love this knitted skull!





And oh, my...if I had only had these for my wedding day! Skull stockings!



Other worthy skull knits:

Knitted tea cozy from Halloween Mania


A neat-o pink and black skull pouch

Nefertem Shawl

Ohhhh!! I just found this lovely (or creepy, whichever you prefer) shawl on Red Pepper Quilts.


Don't you just love it?! I could definitely see this as a bridesmaid gift to be worn during your Hallowedding. Apparently it knits quickly - I have not tried something quite this challenging, but I may just have to have a go at it! Pattern created by Kristen Kapur and the information is here.

Potter Mania

July 15 seems to be approaching too fast and not fast enough at the same time! The last installment of the Harry Potter movies causes extreme excitement and sadness at the same time (okay, okay, I am being a bit dramatic). Anyway, I was in entertaining myself with some nostalgic internet surfing and came across this.

Mad-Eye Martini


This really makes me want to have a Harry Potter party! Sigh...if only the hubs would allow that amount of nerdiness in our house :).
