Random Stuff In My Home

This is a reading lamp that Josh is currently using as a zombie head holder. I now do all my reading by flashlight.

Halloween 2011 : Can't Sleep...

Clowns will eat me.




It's true. They will.

Some more horrors from Halloween in NYC

 Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice.

 I would have been afraid of catching on fire. But that's My luck.

Super Grover!

Josh as Red Skull, and Captain America.

"Eye Kandy" 

Guy carrying dead guy.


This scared me more than any other costume I saw.

I think it's the dude from 'Screamers'. Anyone remember that movie? No? Didn't think so.

My Halloweening companions.

Playing around with the camera. I must have been having a 'Phantom' moment. It just needs a mask and a candle-lit chandelier.

My Halloween costume, a statue of Mary crying blood.

WFT Crafting: Crochet Bathing Suits

"Nanna's table runner is gonna look totally hot at the beach."

Okay. Yeah. I did it. So what? I am a yarn addict. I can admit that. I’ll crochet anything. It doesn’t matter how stupid or impractical the thing is, when I have an idea to make something, it’s gonna get made.

Mine was a bikini made out of merino, which is a wool blend, for you civilians out there. It was purple and blue and I gave it shell edging (BECAUSE IT’S A BEACH, GET IT???).

A merino sheep. Clearly a beach animal.

It wasn’t waterproof, obviously, and there was no stretch to the fabric, which are only the top two things you need for a bathing suit.

I wore it once, to the beach, and then decided to retire what I now refer to as the “ass sweater”.

I still wear the top sometimes. You know, on those days when I want to keep Just my breasts really, really warm.
