How to Make a Badass Halloween Scarecrow


As a kid growing up in the 90s, I was obsessed with that show Are You Afraid of the Dark?.  Like, hardcore obsessed.  I distinctly remember this one episode of the show where these two kids found this really creeptastic old scarecrow (check him out here!) in an old barn.

Last Halloween, I decided I wanted to go all out with my decorating and try to create one myself! Continue reading “How to Make a Badass Halloween Scarecrow”

Dessert Nachos

img_4024Ahhhhh, September.  The last kiss of summer, the first taste of fall.  The month of bonfires and apple picking, of Oktoberfest beers, and if you’re anything like me, hoarding copious amounts of new pens and notebooks and fun office supplies even though you’ve been finished with school for almost a decade.

The basement of my house is petty much set up for entertaining.  There’s a bar area, a table and chairs for dining, a bathroom, and a sitting area with comfy seating and a TV.  Each time I hosted a party, however, I kept running in to the same problem: although there were plenty of places to sit down there, there was really nowhere for people to be able to be able to pour their drinks without getting in someone else’s way.  I used to  have a beat up old card table (which was disguised with a table cloth until my cats shredded it up) where I would set out things like 2 liters, cups, lemons, cherries, a bottle opener, etc.  It was functional, but it wasn’t pretty.

Then, I was driving home one day when I happened to pass a yard sale.  I found a couple of treasures that day, but the most exciting thing was this vintage bar cart, which I managed to score for just a couple bucks. Continue reading “Vintage Bar Cart Makeover”
