BOTB 10.23.15

By Kate Riley October 23, 2015

Well well well, just one week until Halloween, are you ready? We’re gearing up for the holiday and will likely “Boo” some friends this weekend to jump start the festivities.

I’m also working with my website designer on the final tweaks of the website makeover, much to do! If you spy anything strange happening over the weekend, note it’s all under control – the updated design is coming soon! Meanwhile, it’s time for another round of Best of the Blogosphere, enjoy these projects from some very talented peeps!

Many thanks to Amanda who always helps me roundup these projects, enjoy this beautiful fall weekend friends!


  1. Just an FYI – That’s not Dana’s makeover on House Tweaking, she just posted about it.

  2. Kate, I’ve been a fan of yours for a LONG time, and I can honestly say, your blog is my absolute favorite. Your attitude, your style, your projects, everything is just spot on to me.
    One thing I really appreciate about your blog is the speed with which I can scroll through it. Sometimes I get on a blog and I’m trying to scroll down only for everything to freeze for some time. I’m not saying I race through yours, but I’d like it to move when I’m trying to scroll down. Please keep this in mind as you work on your website makeover. PLEASE keep yours moving freely! Thank you.
