Somewhere in The Carolinas – Halloween is coming to life, especially out front on this porch. Here come the kitschy decorations, a couple of records and a portable turntable. Applying the faux spider webbing to the awning, brick pillars and leafy green hedges is one of my areas of decorative expertise. Such joy.

Somewhere in The Carolinas – The secondhand scores keep on rolling through in a slow and steady manner. There are so many neat things I would like to keep. Thing is I have this premonition that in a few years I may find myself living out of an Econoline van or some type of refurbished 70s vintage-boogie down rv and all of these goodies aren’t coming with. Well, except for the 70s vtg. Bare Trap wood base sandals and the crap art ceramic decorative dish [above].

Somewhere in The Carolinas – This never-ending summer continues as we enter the second or third day of autumn. Global warming has never lied. I am still snickering at those who think because Mabon is here, it will automatically drop to a crisp 63 degrees as crunchy leaves in gold, orange and red tickle their blankly optimistic faces with all falsely being calm. Absolutely ridiculous. Reality dictates autumn does not truly grab hold until the day after Halloween. Hello?!

Today’s “look” builds off of a 1950s style tropical print cotton blend sundress I’ve had in the closet for some time. Accessories I have paired with this dress should be familiar to those who follow these outfits I put together. Every thing…every piece of clothing and costume jewelry was scored off of Ali Express minus the 1940s vintage cuff bracelet with scarabs and Egyptian royalty.

My neck and head are sore. Symptoms of my post-stroke life. These joint aches and searing pains are related to nerve damage. I’m going to lay back and work on my late day snack game. Just a nib as there aren’t good things in these “treats”. I’ll mainly drink copious amounts of water and lounge in the sun. Good day, babies.
