Bewitching Valentines

Instead of opting for the traditional store-bought Valentine, why not send your sweetie a Vintage Halloween Valentine?!

Haha, this one is a little creepy...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Human Heart Cupcakes

Why given a dozen roses when you can give a dozen Human Heart Cupcakes this Valentine's Day?! 

If you aren't the sentimental type and are tired of the sugared heart shapes and frilly flowers, why not go for something more realistic! 

Feed your inner Zombie!

Bloody Valentine Martini

In anticipation of Valentine's Day, I found the perfect cocktail for you! This Bloody Valentine Martini uses Blood Oranges, Absolute Mandarin Vodka and Campari.

I love the citrusy sweetness of Blood Oranges with that beautiful, deep crimson color! 

This would be a GREAT cocktail for your Halloween party as well!

My Latest Victims

I was looking for some furniture at my local thrift store, when I decided to check out the toy section. I came across a few baby dolls that would be perfect for my next victims to be "Zombified". 

I first saw this larger size baby doll, which will be perfect for a more realistic look once painted. Only $1.99 at the thrift store!

 I then saw this guy which is much smaller but so creepy looking on it's own! I think it's one of those Anne Geddes style dolls. I can't wait to paint this one with some darker colors and maybe change the butterfly wings to bat wings!

I'll post pictures of the dolls once I've finished painting and "Zombifying" them! These will be a perfect addition to my Zombie Nursery Halloween scene.
