    Pug Light

    This sad-faced pug lamp is just the thing to add a little humor to a room. And as we learned from Jonathan Adler, decorating should be fun. $69 at Urban Outfitters.

    Stylish Halloween Round-Up

    I’m a big fan of multitasking. So I’m a big fan of Halloween decor that is classy enough to be used or displayed year round (depending on your tastes, of course). So here is a round up of some of my favorite spooky decor. Above, Halloween Medallion Plates, $31.95 at Williams Sonoma.

    Molded Resin Snake Box, $39.95 at Z Gallerie.

    Skull Vase, $42 at West Elm.

    Tutorial Time

    I’ve run across several fantastic tutorials on Pinterest this week – and with shorter, colder days on the way, it’s the perfect time to find some new indoor projects. Above, a retro diamond focal wall from Vintage Revivals.

    And while you’re cleaning out your sweater drawer, why not make an old sweater into a cross stitched pillow. Get the how-to over at A Beautiful Mess.

    And if you’re looking for a classy twist on fall decor, check out these decoupage pumpkins over at Poppytalk. Happy crafting.

    Make it a Double

    This beechwood coffee scoop pulls double duty as a bag clip. Which comes in handy since I recently learned I’m not supposed to be keeping my coffee beans in the freezer. $12 each.

    Coasting Along

    Coasters are meant to stop condensation from putting rings on your furniture. Which makes me wonder why most coasters are made of plastic, glass or ceramic. All three materials end up stuck to the bottom of a dripping glass. Maybe it’s time for me to order some of these leather gem coasters from Urban Outfitters. $45 for the set of 4.

    Spin Me a Yarn

    There’s something so charming and folksy about these Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles from Aunt Peaches. And that’s leaving out how amazingly fun it is to say “Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles.” All you need to make them is some colorful yarn and a few inexpensive bracelets. Get the how-to here.

    Etsy Find: I Saw the Sign

    I’ve always thought a subtle neon sign can add a pop of modern to more traditional decor. I’ve just never thought I’d find a neon sign that was even remotely affordable. That was until I ran across Marcus Conrad Poston’s Etsy shop. His signs aren’t exactly cheap, but they come in under $1000 each. Above, super awesome J’adore neon sign, $650. Poston also does custom jobs. Via PoppyTalk.
