Periodically when researching I’ll stumble on something that’s just too good not to share. Bonus points if it’s festive! No advice, no pearls of wisdom- I’m definitely, pretty much, mostly very certain those are reasons you all decide to stop by- just something cool I thought was worth sharing. This week, let’s look at art created for The Nutcracker throughout history.
As it turns out, there’s enough weird in history for a second look at History’s Halloween. Missed the first? Check it out here.
When people ask about my Friday night plans…
Making a Pumpkin-House a Pumpkin-Home“You know, I feel like you just reach a point in your life where you have to buy investment pieces when you’re furnishing your pumpkin.”

We’re half way through October, so it might be the point in the month where you start making your Halloween plans. Have you considered a Weeny Witch party? Don’t you love “barrels of fun”? It’s my favorite unit of fun!
And ok, my ideal party is just me dancing around, scream-singing the soundtrack to Newsies in my pajamas, eating shrimp tacos, so maybe my idea of a barrel of fun doesn’t include anthropomorphized wieners. But look at their faces! They seem into it!
Your friends won’t think it’s weird. They might say, “this is weird,” but they’re not thinking it.

I’m not going to lie. Sometimes brunch with the girls gets weird.
