No Tricks!

I love a Home Made Costume. Especially for Halloween. If you need super-cute get-up for a last minute Ensemble for THIS Wednesday, check out the Homemade Costume Series from Oh Happy Day!

There are several of the most unique costumes you can make yourself in time for Halloween...
This Year! Or save them for a rainy day in need of some imaginative fun!
Find the instructions to this Darling Snail Costumes here. And the whole series here.

Oh, the capelet. Quite possibly the cutest of all outerwear. Not a jacket or even a coat per say but piece of warmth reminiscent of what Cinderella might have needed to wear had she been allowed to stay out later than midnight. Here are 3 of the cutest capelets that make bundling up such fun!

Fringe Cape

Cashmere Cape

This Enchanted Woods party simply takes my breath away! It is from the current issue of Donna Hay and you must go and pick up a copy as it is filled with the most magical party ideas including some truly original ones for boys.

Party On

Party Hats were BIG in my birthday party days as a young girl. They have such a sweet old-fashion party feel to them. I would personally like to see them make a come-back, what about you?  There is nothing cuter than to see all the little guests gather around the cake to sing Happy Birthday wearing a festive party hat. This Accordion Party Hat is a darling spin on the traditional pointy one.
Pick a plain or patterned paper in your party color theme and don't be surprised if your guests don't want to take them off! Find the full step by step tutorial by A Subtle Revelry.

Sparkle ON

Doesn't this message say it all?
I am currently seeking inspiration from this very sign on my office wall but wouldn't it be perfect as a gift in a frame or in a little(or big) girl's room? Find the quote print here.
