Weekend Pieces - 10.15.11 & 10.16.11

'Twas a weekend all about nesting and laziness to the nth degree.  In between some 'Mr. Show' and 'Fall Out: New Vegas,' I got the urge to take the pup for a walk - and pick up a necklace haunting me since last weekend's explorations.

I love the delicate gold chain, and the way the colored stones change with the light.  And, best of all - $20.  I did a little reading up on Owl & Thistle General Store this week, and am really into the store's philosophy.  Striving to be a one-stop mart of yore featuring all kinds of sustainable goods, they also showcase items made by neighborhood folk.  The vibe is relaxing and inviting, like you're popping into a crafty friend's living room for a chat.  Necklace secured (and an $11 Tyvek paper wallet for Bones acquired), I feel certain in finding lots of hidden gems there in the future.


With festive hearts, we took to the streets Sunday to find pumpkins!  And a crazy bounty was quickly located at Natty Garden on Washington Avenue.

Pumpkins secured, we took two beauties home for some carving-while-watching-scary-movies action.

Inquisitive dog  included.

And, of course, just the right accompanying beverages.

Our living room table was transformed into Pumpkin Central, under the watchful eye of 'Apollo 18'

With roasted pumpkin seeds in our future, our little creatures came out smashing.


Well, one of ours.  Pumpkin beer does not, apparently, lend itself to artistic competency.

So begins our first of (hopefully) many ghoulish undertakings this Fall.  Muahahaha.
