Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween everyone! I can't believe the year has flown by so quickly! I'm so excited for the kids to dress up and trick or treat tonight. This is Hunter's first Halloween and I'm hoping he will have a blast!
Marli has asked me every single day for the last week if it was Halloween yet,  I'm so glad that I can finally say yes. 
Today's Kitsch Krazy is a little different! In spirit of the holiday I present some lovely Old Hollywood actresses all dressed up and ready for Halloween! Witch one is your favorite?
(See what I did there?)

Spooktactular playlist and a hop!

 Bonjour everyone! I hope that you all had a grand weekend! Welcome to the Halloween edition of Music Monday! Today I created a playlist of all my favorite Halloween themed songs to share with everyone today.
I hope you all enjoy it, and make sure that while you're here you link up to The GFC Collective blog hop!
Spooktacular! by gypsybee on Grooveshark 
 
 


Wow, yet again we saw an increase in the number of lovely ladies linking up with us for the GFC Collective. 64 link ups in just the second week, that's great!

This week I have added a new link up tool so that you can use a thumbnail image. Let's face it, people do judge a book by it's cover and if you've got an eye catching thumbnail, maybe you'll get a little more traffic :) Without further ado...

Welcome to the weekly "GFC Collective" party :) This is a link up for bloggers who want to gain followers and meet some awesome new bloggy buddies. I have met some pretty neat people by following them with GFC. It's so easy to keep up to date with all of my fav blogs :)

Teacup Candles!

 Yesterday during my sponsor shout-out I posted about the lovely Beth over at Arrow in the Eye and her tutorial for making teacup candles
I tried it out and they turned out so fantastic I wanted to share it with you all!
Instead of threading my own wicks or using tea lights I bought a package of wicks that where ready to go and I used a candle that had burned funny and I couldn't use anymore. This was a great project to give new life to a candle that you don't want to throw away but can't use. Recycling people! Thanks so much Beth for this awesome tutorial, and I hope you all check it out!
  
If you make your own teacup candles let me know!
Have a lovely Sunday!

Goodwill Treasures!

Hello all of my lovely readers old and new! It's Thursday which means it's time to show off your thrifty finds! This link party, starting in November, is going from every week to twice a month, so hopefully that will make it easier on those of you who want to link up but don't go thrifting every week!
This week I got some pretty amazing finds at one of my local Goodwill stores.
Excuse my terrible quality picture!

1.// My obviously attention starved cat. 2.// 3 yards of vintage floral fabric. 3.// Cream cup 
4.// Three floral vintage plates. 5.// Floral loafers from Target!

What thrifting gold have you dug up lately? Link it up!
Have a fantastic Thursday!

It's that time again! Let's see what goodies you found!!

This link party was created to bring together all of you thrifty bloggers! So link up with your blog post showing your recent thrifted finds!

Travel Companions.


Hello loves! This week's Kitsch Krazy is all about floral overnight bags! I am a huge fan of using  these bags as purses! Being a mommy, I love having a bigger bag because you never know what you're going to have to throw in your purse. Kids make you hold just about everything, not to mention snacks, cups, and toys! These add the perfect pop of color and pattern to any outfit and are spacious enough to hold all of your essentials. They are also perfect for weekend trips or even to use as a brief case for the office! I'm so obsessed with these retro suitcases! 
Which one is your favorite?

Hello Everyone! Hopefully you all are having a fantastic day. I have a few things to talk about before we start. If you haven't noticed things have been changing around the blog so I've been hard at work making sure that everything is running smoothly! If anything is acting crazy I apologize and I hope it will all be fixed soon. With that being said, I hope everyone is liking the new digs!

Also, I'm taking part in a fantastic giveaway over at Grits and Moxie, so go check it out and enter to win some fantastic prizes. I'm contributing a free large ad space for the rest of the Fall season and all the perks that come with large sponsorship and these lovely earrings:

I  want to take a minute to say that the shop has been doing amazing and I want to thank all you that have been ordering and stopping by my Facebook page! Remember I'm celebrating my six month anniversary so until the end of October you can use PROMO CODE SIXMO to get 16% off your order!
I will be adding more items shortly so keep your eye out!
I haven't shown some Etsy Love in awhile so here are some of my favorite Etsy shops this week! I need to make some orders because I'm in love with each of these shops/items! I hope you check out all of these fantastic shops!
