It's 102 degrees Fahrenheit in Houston which means, of course, that it's almost autumn. Ugh! It is so freeeeeeeking hot outside. What is there to do but look forward to cooler days, right? Halloween has to be just around the corner.
Which makes me want to look back. To this picture.
Now you might think that this is one of the most awesome Princess Leia costumes ever and you're right, it could have been. Except this picture was taken in 1972...and Star Wars didn't come out until 1977. Which means that, you got it, this is no Halloween costume. This was me dressed up for my piano recital. (Don't judge...and don't tell Captain America this picture exists either.)
But I say we go with it. I was the first one in the world with a Princess Leia Halloween costume and if Antiques Roadshow ever asks, we're all sticking with this story. Got it?
So speaking of Halloween, I've been busy getting Halloween books ready for my big fall craft show coming up in a couple of months. You, however, don't need to wait because you (yeah, I'm talking to you) can grab some of these nifty books now on Etsy.
There are some old favorites from last season like the Scary book...
...and...who could forget...the spider?!?
There's even a new version of
that would look really boo-tiful on a bookshelf
And for that matter a new version of
Check out that ominous endpaper! It sparkles!
And speaking of sparkling, the purple, glittery trees on these creepy endpapers shine!
This is the perfect gift when you don't know what to buy...
...your creepy friend who wears a big, brown bun right above each ear. She'll get the idea.
