Here is what I have been up in October:

Pumpkin Parade: Silver leaf pumpkin - decorating outside for Halloween
Lions and Tigers and Bears ... and a polar bear butt
The black widow - Muha ha ha - chicken wire and tulle for Halloween
DIY wedding gift wrap for a DIY wedding
Highlights from a September wedding
Sea shell tea light and a glorious sunset over the bay
Heather wreath - and how to make your own wreath form
Put the trick back in Trick or Treat - ghoulish eyes party favor
Halloween costume - Ness from Earthbound - thrifted and spray painted

Of course one of the main happenings was this huge Pumpkin Parade Link party that I threw with all these fabulous bloggers.
