Before I go full on temporally-inappropriate-department-store-décor with the Christmas stuff, here are some shots of Halloween in our apartment.

|I am a Halloween nerd, so when 10/1 rolled around I finally clicked "buy" on my Amazon cart. Georgie is my fave.|
Cider was sipped, Hocus Pocus was watched. Now it's CHRISTMAS TIME, BABY. (The other occupant of this apartment may or may not agree with that sentiment...)
In non-Halloween news, we treated ourselves to the Nate Berkus for Target sculpted branch lamp. It immediately reminded me of old Hollywood Regency brass wheat lamps:

I have a lamp problem, but I'm getting better. We actually needed the light from this guy so it was a functional purchase. It love it, but I think the design of the base would have benefited from a fourth "branch" in the back. With the tripod base it looks great from the front, but flat in the back if viewed from the side. Here it is in action:

With the combination of our Red Debit Cards (5% off every purchase; cannot recommend this enough) and a 5% prescription rewards coupon, the base + shade came in at under $70. The subtitle for this post (and likely the majority of posts going forward) can be "I love Target." No, I do not work for them. Just who, exactly, I should work for is the big question of the moment...
