Weekend Links + The Slide

Our trip to Vermont signals the quick slide into the holiday season around here. It’s like we’re standing at the very top, looking down at that first curve — whoop! — to Thanksgiving (in Hawaii), then another curve takes us to Christmas and the new year, ending quite dramatically with a splash into the big pool of bubbles that is Alt Summit.

So this weekend, my goal is to soak it all in before the end-of-year whirlwind. We’ll be going to see a friend’s band play in Western Mass. We’ll take Kona for a long, leaf-collecting walk, and we’ll keep the windows open as late as we possibly can.

I hope you have a restful weekend and I can’t wait to meet you back here on Monday! Until then, here are five fascinating things for your weekend:

I love that Victoria is sharing her current reads, even if she’s embarrassed about one of them.

This is exactly why we love watching old TV series.

A glass house built with $500. (Or watch it above!)

Not into costumes but still feeling festive? These are for you.

Precisely why I consider moving to California (or back home) every year.

What are you up to this weekend?

DIY Watch Dog Halloween Costume

DIY Halloween Dog Costume: Watchdog

Kona isn’t much of a watchdog. She growls quietly if she hears noises in the hallway, but as soon as she meets the person making the noises it’s all puppy kisses and ear nibbles and happy-to-see-you dances. So we’re going with irony — and multiple puns — here by dressing her up as a “watch dog” for Halloween! We got the idea from MJ, who posts fantastic lunchbox note puns on her Instagram feed, one of which was about a watch-wearing dog.

This is possibly the simplest Halloween costume ever, so you can definitely whip it up at the last minute if you’re on the fence about dressing up your pooch. Especially if you have a human-child with tiny t-shirts that are no longer in use.

Supplies:

Baby T-shirt
Iron transfer paper
Printer
Iron

Find a drawing of a watch and set your printer to print its mirror image. Allow the ink to dry for at least half an hour, then cut around the illustration, leaving a thin white border around the edges so all the details remain in-tact.

Place the image face-down on the t-shirt and move your hot iron in circles over the transfer paper. Follow the instructions on your transfer paper packet. In general, you’ll want to use high heat and work on a hard surface (ie: not an ironing board), spending about 20 seconds on each part of the image. Wait until the paper is cool, then pull off the backing to reveal your design!

We may need to get Kona a slightly bigger t-shirt to accommodate for all her fluff. But for today, she seems to be okay sporting the muscle tee look. This face says: “Can I have more apples if I keep posing?”
