This is your Halloween Edition.
Here’s me being retired: undeterred by low income, I get “creative” with what I have, improvising whimsical décor and provisions. Hey all you once-a-year zombies on the street, where I live it’s Halloween all year. Or whatever holiday I say it is.
I spend a lot of time alone, keeping myself amused. Can you tell? I think I need to get out more.
I needed an earring tree, so I made one out of twisted decorative wire. It may not look Etsy-pro, but it works for me! My corvid cousins would be so envious. Here’s one now, eying the goods.
This Italian/Greek-style meal was super-easy to concoct with a small quantity of pasta, fresh and home-frozen veggies, homegrown fresh and dried herbs, and some Italian cheeses. With inexpensive red wine, it probably comes to a couple of dollars at most. I don’t know how The Skullies stay so thin!
When I had no fresh flowers for Diwali, I threaded together scraps of craft materials into a garland, and then added shiny sukkah remnants, so it’s all-inclusive. Hindu with a side of Sukkot. Maybe some Day of the Dead thrown in for good measure. Cover all the bases.
I’ve always been a little eccentric and fanciful. In case it’s not obvious. Maybe it’s all the sci-fi/fant/horror I’ve read.
So, yeah, not strictly minimalist, because I’m a corvid at heart. (Not featherbrained!)) I can’t resist the glittery stuff. It’s not exactly nesting; call it accessorizing.
