I must confess that I love decorating for just about every holiday.  Halloween is a personal favorite.  My bias is against overloading on tacky, mass produced decorations.  I like things that homemade, unique, and bit quirky.  I have a dress-form who changes clothes for each holiday. I change throw pillows and sofa blankets to coordinate with the seasons. I also have a wonderful old slate blackboard that I draw on to give the kitchen a bit of holiday pizzazz.  For this Halloween I went with a sexy little witch.  She may be my alter-ego; I don’t know for sure. I do know that I like having a little va-va-voom in my favorite room.  Happy Halloween. I wish you all a bewitching time.

Brain Hemorrhage Anyone?

TangoPango‘s Brain Hemorrhage cocktail:

  • 1/2 – 3/4 oz. Peach Schnapps
  • Float 1-2 Tbl. of Baileys on top
  • Drop 1 tsp of grenadine through the Baileys.

We haven’t tried it here, but the creator promises it “tastes like Peaches and Cream.”
