It surprises a lot of folks that I don't enjoy dressing up for Halloween. Costumes are just not my thing. (Unless, of course, there's someone among you who might consider a new Tom Ford dress a costume?? If so, please step forward!) I much prefer to commemorate this holiday with knives - lots of tiny ones to use for pumpkin carving! That merits style points, no? This year I did Tinkerbell (above photo) and nearly lost my right hand poking out the "galaxy" with a bamboo skewer. I was 20 minutes in when it dawned on me that a drill would be much more efficient. And sure enough I was right. It pains my heart (as well as the phantom pain in my right hand) that she is beginning to wither because she turned out to be a pretty little thing!
