Hey Soul Sista, Playing Mister Mister on the Radio
First up, John Galliano has put up 10 pieces of graffitis throughout London as a special promotion for Elle's 25th birthday. There are clues, and the first person to find all 10 and tweets photos of themselves at the locations will have a chance to win a priceless JG creation and a subscription to Elle. Um, yeah.
Secondly, I'm really excited about how my fall decorating came out. I was envisioning a Japanese artisan scolding me for doing it all wrong as I was ironing the wax paper leaves for my bathroom window, but whatevs. Babyzilla asked me not to put up anything too scary, so I put up a cute little scarecrow guy in the garden next to Bobby Bones, who has a new spot every year. For a dead guy he sure does get around. I'm particularly fond of my little wooden decorations, I have no idea how old they are (I got them at an auction).
One of the things I love best about Halloween decorating is how my house just blends right in. Suddenly it's o.k. that the paint is peeling and the carpet is old, that stuff just adds to the appeal. It's the one time of year that I can feel totally at ease about my humble little hobbit house.
How is your fall decorating going? Are you inspired, or maybe you just want to hop a plane to London for a crack at John's contest.
