3 Scary Dolls for Halloween

3 Scary Dolls for Halloween | The World of Suzy Homemaker @SuzyHomemakerUK

I take no credit for the whole scary doll thing.

It was all Beloved's idea.

I simply executed it.

After all, who gets scared by a girl's toy?

Halloween DIY for Wayfair UK

Halloween Drago Eye Tutorial for Wayfair.co.uk by The World of Suzy Homemaker | @SuzyHomemakerUK

My quest to become The Queen of Halloween took a giant leap forward this week, when Wayfair.co.uk asked me to create a Halloween-themed DIY for their Inspiration site.

Wayfair is THE place for all things home, bringing together the largest selection of home furnishings and décor, across all styles. With a selection of more than seven million home items, from thousands of brands, Wayfair helps people find the perfect product at the right price.

I've long been a Wayfair fan, having lusted after several items on the site for quite some time.

So, to say I was thrilled to be asked to provide an exclusive article for their inspirational design and lifestyle pages would be an understatement.

Halloween Apothecary with 9 FREE potion bottle labels

Halloween Apothecary potion bottles by @SuzyHomemakerUK

So. It's September. According to the weatherman, that means Autumn's arrived. But anyone living in Blighty will know it's been Autumn for, oh... at least the LAST MONTH! Apparently, we've just had the wettest August on record. No, really? Any Brit could've told 'em that, just by looking out the window!

Sadly, it seems September isn't starting out any better and now it's even getting a bit nippy in the mornings and evenings. Marvellous. But on the bright side, September also means it's no longer too early to talk Halloween!

Yay!

As you know, I've had Halloween on the brain for weeks now, so I thought it was about time I revealed some of what's been bubbling in my cauldron. First up, it's potions and poisons... complete with 9 FREE bottle labels for you to download, so you can get started on Halloween yourself.

Halloween Shopping Haul

Halloween Shopping Haul | @SuzyHomemakerUK

When I left you last week, I was rambling on about managing the onset of SAD syndrome by making a start on this year's Halloween crafts. It wasn't my intention to get all deep and meaningful, but I guess if I'm going to write a blog about life on my planet, there's a very good chance the good will be joined by a little of the bad and the ugly!

Getting back to the fun stuff, I had a brilliant weekend. Crafting aside, women the world over will attest to that other magical cure for depression... retail therapy. Put 'em together and what have you got?

One HELL of a Halloween shopping haul!

I don't normally post round-ups, but I am SO excited about my shopping trip, I just had to share my spoils with you. That way, if you feel the urge to splurge, you'll have a head start on where to go for all things Halloween.

Crafting as a cure for depression

Halloween Apothecary | @SuzyHomemakerUK

Hello my lovelies. How's your week been? Me, I've been having a brilliant time! I've spent the last few days knee-deep in potions, powders bats and spiders.

The World of Suzy Homemaker is preparing for Halloween!

Yes, yes... I know it's only August. If truth be told, it's a little early for all things spooky even for me, but you know what? Day after day of wall-to-wall grey skies was killing me.

Remember how last week, I lamented the non-existence of summer so much that I decided to sell my Bon Jovi collection? Well, little improvement on the weather front and autumn looming far too close on the horizon, had me in need of a serious shot of excitement to stop me spiralling into a deep, dark hole.

Bon Jovi: The end of an era

Sue and Richie Sambora, backstage at Count Basie, New Jersey, 1994 | The World of Suzy Homemaker

Hello my lovelies. Are you enjoying the summer? What there's been of it, I mean.

Usually, come August, I like to take it easy. As in, total wind down. For a whole month, I normally relocate my office to the garden and do only what's necessary for my clients and very little else... all from the comfort of my sun lounger.

Bliss.

Well, yes... ordinarily. Only this year, the weather's been so abysmal, my lounger's practically gathering dust. I've had no choice but to find other ways to occupy my time.

Keep Calm and Ignore the Mess

Keep Calm and Ignore the Mess | The World of Suzy Homemaker

"You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette." So they say.

Well if that's the case we'd best get some ingredients in, because Beloved and I are going to be eating omelettes for months!

I'm suddenly reminded of that line in Forrest Gump. You know the one, where Bubba reels off everything he can do with shrimp? "Anyways, like I was sayin' there's all kinds a omelette. There's ham & cheese omelette, potato and bacon omelette, cheesy chicken omelette, mushroom omelette, salmon omelette, there's even omelettes in a bag..."

Now that's a lot of omelettes. Not unlike the amount of mess at OneandSeventy right now.
