My La Catrina t-shirt (bought in New Mexico) and my skull and crossbones scarf are getting lots of wear.

skullduggery 1

I like skulls and skeletons and found out that I have a number of skull themed pieces of clothing that I like to wear in the fall. Here are my new birthday socks and my little runners.

Still creative...sorta

I have to admit, I am having some trouble settling in. Two major moves in one year seem to have upset my Libran scales. I may not be painting paintings but I am working on things like my sideboard top/Tchotchke holder thingy.

I bought this top a couple of years ago at a yard sale and have been lugging it around. It's quite heavy and was missing the centre mirror and the second side panel. The wood was in pretty rough shape.

Now it adorns my dining room wall. The panels were replaced with masonite board covered in textured wallpaper until such time as I can afford to replace one/all of them with mirror. Thanks to HGTV for the inspiration. I really like accents of brightly painted furniture. I can hardly wait to decorate this for Day of the Dead.

asymmetrical tunic

I found the big scary dress at the thrift shop. I thought I would just play with it and see if I could turn it into a lagenlook piece. Of course the socks just make that outfit.

I rather like it taken in, with shortened sleeves and an asymmetrical hem.

It's loose and cool and I think I will wear it to a lecture tonight. Now if I could just get my dang feet in the picture...
