A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

Easy No-Bake Monster Cookies


These easy monster cookies are perfect for a kid's Halloween party or a monster-themed birthday party. When coming up with Halloween treat ideas, I really keep in mind that people already have a lot of other things to make for a party; it's not a time to make everything from scratch. These no-bake Halloween cookies start with store-bought Halloween Oreo's and are decorated with items most people have on hand this time of year, like marshmallows and candy corn. You could also make these monster cookies with sandwich cookies or whoopie pies. The one thing you may need to get from the grocery store is decorating icing. It's essential to making the marshmallow eyeballs and candy corn teeth stay on the cookies. I found it was very easy to make these using the Wilton white decorator icing in a tube with an attached icing tip. I was able to get each of those things at my local Walmart.

Supplies Needed


Instructions
  1. Start by turning the marshmallows into eyeballs using a dab of the black icing. Use a toothpick to help spread the icing into a circle.
  2. Place a dab of the decorating icing on the top of each cookie and affix a marshmallow. 
  3. Dab the white decorator icing on each piece of candy corn and affix two to each cookie.
  4. Let dry.
