This diamond in the rough is just down the road from me. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.
Wouldn’t this sweet wreath look fabulous on a pink vintage camper? I’d be tempted to splurge on one of these beauties, but Ms. Peachez sells out of them as quickly as she can post them. May be time to channel some Lazy Girl Crafts mojo and make my own.
Pam on her awesome blog, retro renovation, posted some DIY instructions on making your own vintage ornament wreath. Maybe if I start now I can make my own in time for next season. Here’s a sneak peak at their success. (I wish Pam were my neighbor.)
I love shopping on Etsy. What’s better than supporting crafty people and having one-of-a-kind artsy things from around the country? My favorite find this week is an adorable Shasta Christmas ornament from PinkPorches. Available in red, pink, or aqua, and only $14.95. I better get mine today before they’re gone.

More than one person has been on a road trip with me when I’ve veered off route to peek in an abandoned house, school, or factory (and a former mental health facility in one instance). Others have been stuck listening to my paranormal encounters, watching spooky movies, or going on goofy ghost walks with me. And now I totally want to visit a creepy campground I came across this week. You can read more about the ghosts of summer-camp-outs-past on the Brookhaven Condemned Campground site. I wanted to learn more about what happened to this community so I tried to contact the website’s owner. I haven’t had a response yet, but it sounds like shady developers sold illegal land in West Brookfield, Massachusetts, to unsuspecting buyers who were ultimately evicted by the state (for reasons I can’t quite understand).
These photos (© Brookhaven Associates, Inc.) of forgotten campers and decaying campsite playgrounds are lovely–and sad–and haunting. And they remind me that October is the time I like to celebrate another love of mine: bluegrass, folk, and old time music–especially murder ballads and ghostly songs. I’m a very peace-loving person, but I’m also drawn to poetic storytelling of life’s tragedies, not to mention that high lonesome sound.
If you’re like me and you love a good Hallowe’en-inspired music set, check out the PineCone Bluegrass live streaming Halloween special on Sunday, October 30 (6:00-9:00 p.m. EST), for a night of spooky songs and murder ballads. Or, listen to Seattle’s KEXP live streaming on Monday, October 31, as they play Halloween-themed songs all day. Do you have a favorite Halloween-themed song? Post it in the comments section. I’d love to discover some new tunes for my Halloween playlist this week. I’ve included some of my favorites below.
Spotted this VW bus rocking the red at last night’s NCSU game against Clemson. I was disappointed by the game’s outcome, but seeing this beauty on my way out of the stadium brightened my mood. Surely would like to roll up to future tailgates in this style!
