The five minute autumn wreath

Whew, it’s been a busy November! Full of new endeavors, like pursuing my real estate license, and new projects both here at home and the mountain house. Due to the long-term nature of these projects (painting the exterior of my house, winterizing the mountain house), I don’t know how many will turn into great blog posts, we’ll just have to wait and see. But, I definitely want to share this incredibly simple and inexpensive semi-DIY holiday wreath.

As the month of October marches on, as do my attempts at inexpensive DIY Halloween decor. And, what front yard is Halloween ready without spooky and pun-filled tombstones? That’s not a rhetorical question, no front yard is complete without these. Here’s how I made these tombstones for $7.

DIY Halloween {Spooky Steps}

Over the weekend, I started to get excited to decorate for Halloween, but with so many projects going on right now, I’m really trying not to spend much time or money on spookifying (hey, it could be a word) the house. To that end, here’s an easy and inexpensive way to let the neighborhood know you’re ready for trick-or-treaters using sidewalk chalk.

  Halloween Steps Before

I chose my back steps for this display for two reasons. 1) The steps are under the patio roof so the chalk won’t wash away the next time it rains and 2) due to our parking set up, it’s the way most people enter the house. Read more

Cha-Cha-Changes {social media + design}

I’m happy to share that as of yesterday, So Pretty is as Pretty Does is on Facebook. Come on by and visit if you’d like by clicking here or by using the Facebook box on the right side of this page.  Speaking of the right side of this page, that’s also new. This week, I made some design updates and changed the menu in an effort to create easier navigation. I’ve also included my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds so there are even more ways to connect.

I’d love to know what you think of the new design and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. So, feel free to comment, message or tweet me! And, thanks to everyone who has liked the Facebook page so far.

PS: I think it’s cruel for a post title to nod to David Bowie without providing an immediate method of listening to David Bowie. To that end…

Happy weekend!
