This would have been a great photo if the camera settings were right, my not-so-little bad fairy. We had such a great time last night with her and our large vanilla milkshake. Although we are totally lame for not even carving pumpkins this year.
Halloween is not my favorite occasion (I've lamented this yearly in this space) but I think last night was just about perfect as far as this particular evening goes. The neighborhood really played it up with great decorations and friendly folks (and good candy, I'm told). Trick or treat bags felt just heavy enough when we were done, and everyone managed to get into bed at a reasonable time.
I'm still collecting and doing a bit of decorating for the I'm a Giant Challenge. I really adore little things!!! These little goodies came last week, a hide rug and "original" sunflower painting, an Eames chair. I also have a "leather couch" and some other little things. I've decided that furniture pieces with faux drawers that don't open are not going to work for me, so I've been taking my time to choose the kitchen and bathroom pieces. I think I finally picked out a bed/mattress combo and when I get it I can decide what type of quilt I'll make. So many of the beds come with bedding already, but I want to make that. So much of the fun is the hunt for the perfect thing.
Who knows if I'll even come close to having it done by the date the challenge ends, but I'm having a ball anyway. Emma is getting in the spirit too (she has had her own dollhouse since she was 4 but its been stored away for a couple years). We have a studio date one evening this week to dollhouse craft and listen to last week's This American Life episode on Middle School. Can't wait!
