On the one hand, I would love to see Stevie Nicks in concert.

On the other hand, I am not enough of a fan of hers* to pay a minimum of $135 + Ticketmaster/Live Nation/whatever ticket agency handling fees. I can count on ONE HAND the artists I would be willing to pay that much money to see, and she's not on that list.





*I'll be totally honest: while I admire the hell out of her, and I like a bunch of her music, I am much more a fan of her fashion than her voice.

Today was the group expedition to JoAnn Fabrics, Michael's, and Home Goods. There was much exclaiming over glittery skulls and whatnot. And by whatnot I mean glittery candy corn wreath. No, I didn't buy it. I knew I didn't really need it, and it wasn't the sort of front door -decorating Halloween wreath I was searching for. But I did have to put it on my hat.



While at Michael's, the sentence "Jilli! We found your sippy cup!" may have been called across the aisles.



I bought two of those.

---

Other Halloween loot included glittery black roses and leaves (decor for future hats); an elaborate wreath of black and red roses, silver leaves, and black feathers; a skull teacup with a spiderweb saucer; some spooky hand towels; glittery skull candles; and a black throw pillow with a large skull screenprinted on it. I successfully resisted all of the red velvet decorations; while I really want a red velvet flocked skull-onna-stand, I know it would be an instantaneous cat fur magnet.

I'm working on decorating the latest Enormous Gothy Sun Hat project.





I feel like it needs ~something~ else, but i don't know what. You would think a fluffy bow of sequined fabric AND a vintage millinery flower AND ridiculous veiling ("spooky fabric" from Value Village's Halloween decor section, whoo!) would be enough. But no. It looks unfinished to me. Hmmph.

I am full of "UGH DON'WANNA" about everything right now, including fun things and things which are good for me. Not that it matters, because I'll do everything I'm supposed to. But I won't be exactly filled with joy about it.

But last night involved a trip to the spa, which helped, and tomorrow night will be flopping and probably DOING NOTHING, which I desperately need at the moment.
I swear, my deadline stress and craziness for work can be charted to my musical selections.


  • Three weeks out from deadline: swirlygoth and witchy instrumental (there must be spells to fix this mess).

  • Two weeks out from deadline (NOW): a return to the Tragic Hair Metal Past (throw the horns!).

  • One week out from deadline, continuing until documentation is shipped: Bandom (Pete Wentz is not an emotional role model remix).


  • (And I haven't really had time to rest/recuperate from the Epic Yard Sale. I'm just pushing forward because things have to get done. Yes, I know, self-care, stuff, things. Ahahahaha. I think part of this coming weekend is going to involve some serious flopping.)

A little over a week ago, one of my favorite jewelry designers, Bloodmilk Jewels ran a pop-up shop called "Exquisite Corpse"; they collaborated with other interesting designers to make some limited edition candles, tote bags, aaaaaaand perfume from Black Phoenix Alchemy lab. (How limited edition? 3 scents, with only 45 bottles available for each.) I was ridiculously lucky, and managed to snag a bottle of the scent I wanted.

Owl Moon is breathtakingly lovely, and everything I hoped it would be. The darkest, richest patchouli that smells like midnight forest loam and bittersweet chocolate, wound through with glimmering golden honey. This ~may~ have dethroned Blood Popsicle as my favorite BPAL concoction. Time will tell.
