October Etsy Round-Up

Ah, October. Arguably my favorite month, and not just because it contains my birthday (woo!). In Austin especially, the weather is my favorite in October – still warm and sunny, but not sweltering. Colors transition into my favorite palette, and it just feels like the season of getting things done. And of course there’s Halloween. So many reasons to like this month. So today I have two Etsy collections that speak to me of October – one around Halloween (unavoidable) and one with a muted color palette that makes me think of fall.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs Part mystery, part paranormal, part historical fiction. “A horrific family tragedy sends Jacob, 16, to a remote island […]

What I Wore: Halloweens Past

So. End of October. Halloween! I don’t have a regular What I Wore post for today, and I’m not dressing up for anything this year. As an adult no longer in college, a self-employed person, and as someone who doesn’t really like bar-hopping, there aren’t a whole lot of costume event options left. I have no kiddos to escort trick or treating, no work parties, a boyfriend who doesn’t like bothering with costumes and no inclination to throw a party myself. I’ll hand out candy to trick or treaters (and eat some myself) but that’s all that’s in store this […]
