Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a nice weekend? I had a lovely weekend. Saturday was my birthday, and while I’m not too thrilled about aging, I love birthdays! My husband and I don’t usually do big gifts, mostly because we’re always broke, but this year he got creative and got me two things. The first was practical, a new set of everyday drinking glasses since we’ve broken about 80% of the glasses we got for our wedding. He picked up a set of 12 pint glasses, which are much heavier and durable than our previous choices. I like them. My second gift was disguised as a box from the Gap, but was actually a small slip of paper from Sappington Shoe Repair. That little slip informed me that the 5 pairs of broken, worn down shoes I’ve been holding onto for upwards of 5 years have been FINALLY taken to the cobbler for fixing and will be returned to me this coming Friday, good as new! This is probably the best gift ever. I’ve been telling myself, and him, that I would take these shoes to the repair shop for ages. I’m notoriously hard on shoes, so I generally render them unwearable in a relatively short amount of time. As it’s usually just a heel cap or something easy like that, I don’t want to throw my cute shoes away, but I obviously kept forgetting to do something with them. Now, come Friday, I’m going to have 5 good as new pairs of shoes to wear! YAY!

Sunday I finished some Halloween projects and finally took pictures of all my Halloween crafting and decorating. So today’s Monday Pinning theme will be named after my newest Pinterest board, From Pin to Reality!

So, first, as I tutorialized here, I made the hanging ghost lights. I found these cuties at That’s What Che Said and had pinned them to make for myself.

After making another batch last night, my porch ghosts now look like this:

Yay for symmetry!

Another pin that I recreated for my own is also from Thats What Che Said. Behold, my witch hats!

For the full tutorial, check out on Cheryl’s very helpful instructions.

Next up is a Pin that I loved from Sassy Sanctuary for a darling Halloween fabric wreath. I used the same fabric that I bought for my Halloween Banner and whipped this guy up one Saturday night.

My final project I did yesterday was pinned from OhHowPosh.com and was so compelling that it inspired my big bush removal project. The inspiration?

The final re-creation?

I think it’s pretty awesome. I’m debating whether or not to add the exclamation point that is shown in the original inspiration. Any thoughts?

So that is it for my recreations of my favorite Halloween pins. I’ll be back tomorrow (or maybe the next day) with the full run down of my Halloween decor, which I think is done for the year. Whew!
