Fall Nesting {Day 14} - Get Your Halloween On

Ack! Halloween is in just over two weeks. How did that sneak up on me? Usually by this time I've already bought a bag or two of Halloween candy on an early sale so I could pat myself on the back for getting such an awesome deal, and then accidentally eaten it. (Note: buying Halloween candy before the 28th or 29th of the month is a bad, bad idea.) 
Last night I finally threw a few Halloween decorations around my house.

(P.S. Thank you to my fabulous brother for gifting my kiddos peacock feathers when we were at the zoo last weekend, so I could steal them for my Halloween display. I? am a bad, bad mom.)

See that little owl? Aww. A couple weeks ago I found some silver mercury glass owls at TJ Maxx and I squealed with love and excitement. And then I noticed that every. single. one. was broken. Darn those fragile owl ears. A couple days ago I went back and found colored ones, and I was initially a little bummed but now I think I might like my little orange dude even more than the silver original.

He's frosted but has the mercury glass treatment underneath... very cute and only $5.

I'm also working on costume ideas. My oldest son begged me to buy him a Captain America costume this year ("Only this year mom, it would be way too hard for you to make. Next year you can make me one again!") so I gave in. My younger son wants to be a spy kid, so I'm working on a fun little costume for him complete with spy kid jet pack:

(Update: See my version of this jet pack!)

You can see what we've done in years past here. What are your Halloween costume plans?

  1. Hiya, Can you tell me how the faux mercury glass works on frosted glass? Been wanting to do a glass lampshade, but not sure it will be worth the time/effort. if i'll really be able to see the mercury-effect. The owl is very cute, but it's hard to tell in the photo if you can see the metallic effect very well.
