    Hard to believe since it's not even September yet, but Halloween is just around the corner. EEK! I can't help feeling excited as I think of all the decorating possibilities: the cute and creepy spiders, tombstones, and pumpkins. 

    We love all the fabulous Halloween ornaments we're seeing in catalogs right now. But if you're on a tight budget, you can still get some of the same looks without breaking the bank. You just have to be a little more clever and resourceful. 

    Here are a few ways to get a beautiful Pottery Barn-style Halloween look at dollar store prices.

    When most people think of candles, fragrant and warm vanilla, berry, or floral scents come to mind.

    What you don't expect, and may not want to smell, are some of the wacky aromas captured in wax we found that mimic some rather strong odors.

    Most people want their home to be a reflection of themselves -- but not literally! Yet that's exactly what London-based artist Gigi Barker had in mind when she designed a line of funky furniture that looks -- and smells -- just like its owners. Say what??

    In what seems like a super-human or super-weird undertaking, Barker, as part of her 'Body of Skin' project, has created chairs that mimic the look and feel of human skin. But that's not all -- their silicon-base fabric is infused with human pheromones and aftershave! And the matching footstools -- hope you're sitting down -- resemble human testicles!

    Fairies have invaded our home! Yes, it's true. We have various sprites who live in different areas of our house from the backyard to the hallway to underneath my daughter's bed. While they don't cause too much chaos, they do add a whole lot of whimsy to our everyday.

    My daughter loves that we embrace our household fairies. At 8 years old, my daughter is at the age where she knows that they are fictional characters, but she still loves to pretend that they are the ones who stole that missing sock or ate the last Snickerdoodle. We love the whole fairy thing so much that we are thinking of adding even more fairy-sized residences to our own. So how does one incorporate fairies into their home? Here are five ways!

    Okay married couples, what usually happens when you decide to paint a room? You both look at paint chips, tape them to the wall, discuss at length, and then one or both of you shows up at the paint store and purchases a mutually agreed-upon color. Right? I mean, that's how I always did it. But maybe there are some rogue husbands out there making unilateral paint color purchases. (HOWCOULDYOU?!?) Because someone found this hilarious sign at a hardware store reading: "Husbands MUST have a note from their wives before selecting colors."

    Really, hardware store? This is the kind of world we live in, now? Couples counseling at Home Depot! You have to wonder what those wives' notes are going to look like. And for that matter, you have to wonder if other stores ought to require notes from spouses before a purchase. I'm sure that wouldn't lead to any charges of sexism at all ...

    If you walk into your bathroom each morning and think to yourself, "Gee, I sure wish this space was a little bit more fresh and inviting," you most definitely aren't alone.

    Considering how much time we spend in there compared to the rest of our rooms, it's obviously a place we should feel happy and comfortable in. But as much as we'd all love to makeover our bathrooms so they resemble something in a magazine, most of us don't have the time or resources to do so.

    It's almost Easter! The family will be expecting at least two things. The first? A visit from the Easter bunny bearing all manner of tasty treats in baskets full of fake green grass. The second? That at least one afternoon will be spent doing this, the most hallowed of all Easter decorating projects: Dyeing Easter eggs

    Sure, you can always buy one of the decorating kits from your local grocery or drug store. Those will come out just fine. But if you want to spice up your routine and do something new with the kids, you've come to the right place.
