Happy New Year From Paris!!

No, I'm not in Paris for the New Year!  But it sounds beautiful!


Happy New Year in Paris - The place to be is the Champs-Elysees. Around 9pm, people gather at the famous street and start to count down to the New Year. Around midnight you can watch the Eiffel Tower’s light show. Montmartre is another fantastic place to ring in the New Year as it is elevated and has spectacular views of the entire Paris skyline. While Paris doesn’t typically have a fireworks show, there are still great parties and many people light off "personal" fireworks near the Champs-Elysees.

Creepystuff for Halloween and the Day of the Dead

So cool; so creepy! 

One of my favorite etsy shops is Creepystuff, which specializes in, well, creepy stuff-- Handmade creepy stuff, that is.  Creepystuff has great stuff for Halloween and Day of the Dead celebrations.

I wrote about Creepystuff a couple of years ago HERE, but shop owner Nan keeps adding new things. It might be a little late to order things for Halloween or Day of the Dead.. but not too late to add a few special items to your collection... for next year (on sale) or even sugar skull ornaments or voodoo wreaths for a unique Christmas.

One of a kind monster Halloween frame:

All of those monster faces are handmade.  Keep photo memories of your creepiest Halloween celebrations all year round.. or just during the Halloween season.

Day of the Dead Box:
