October Wrap Up

Happy Halloween! It’s been a busy month here for us, traveling a lot! Here’s what we’ve been sharing on the blog:

In the Condo:

I celebrated the one year anniversary in my condo and shared an updated tour!

Upgraded Entertainment Center- Charleston Crafted

We majorly updated our living room by streamlining the media on the Hemnes entertainment center from Ikea. It is beautiful and makes me smile every time I watch tv! Plus, it was really fun to style!

Sprucing up a bookshelf - Charleston Crafted

Updating an old Bookshelf - Charleston Crafted

After updating our entertainment center, we took the 2 old bookshelves that used to hold DVDs with our TV and updated them to hold books in the master bedroom & dining room!

Update Your Front Door... With Masking Tape!

I updated the inside of our front door in a temporary way! I think it’s super fun and might change it out for the seasons!

Organize under the bathroom sink - charleston crafted

I got down & dirty and finally organized under our bathroom sink. It involved organizing cleaning supplies and medicine, as well. I think it makes it so much easier to find everything!

Installing a Porch Ceiling Fan - Charleston Crafted

Sean added a ceiling fan to our screened in porch – and it makes a HUGE difference! We are so excited to be able to comfortably eat out there now!


We updated our pantry – and can’t believe that we didn’t do it sooner. It was cheap, easy, and made a HUGE difference!

In the Kitchen:

Crock Pot Applesauce - Charleston Crafted

I discovered (and became obsessed with) how easy it is to make applesauce in the crock pot: spoiler alert- the only ingredient is apples!!

Pesto Spaghetti Squash - Charleston Crafted

We tried spaghetti squash…. and didn’t love it. However, we are considering taking a reader’s suggestion and trying it as a side dish!


I love Halloween and was excited to share some fun projects we did this year!

A Gruesome Dead Head Wreath - Charleston Crafted

I made a super creepy “headless” wreath using baby doll heads.

bloody cupcakes


I baked a graveyard cookie cake and “bloody” crime scene cupcakes!

pumpkin collage

We decorated pumpkins 5 different ways: carved, “murdered”, googly eyes, paw prints, and modge podged.

Old Jail Ghost Tour - Charleston Crafted

We took a spooky tour of Charleston’s haunted jail – it was awesome!

Charleston & Beyond:


I shared the first closet in my Cool Closets series! I LOVE it, don’t you?

Amicalola Falls Trip - Charleston Crafted

Amicalola Falls Trip - Charleston Crafted

We spent a long weekend in Amicalola Falls and had an AMAZING time! We went apple picking, wine tasting, and in a corn maze while we were there!

Consign Charleston

I went window shopping at Consign Charleston & saw a lot of great stuff! If you’re local, I totally recommend it!

Palmetto Islands County Park - Charleston Crafted

We visited a new county park – Palmetto Islands in Mt Pleasant. It was ok, but the highlight was definitely the overlook tower! What a great view!


I made a wrap up of some of my favorite clocks & watches in honor of the time change this weekend. While I’m not looking forward to the switch, having a few of these clocks might make it a little sweeter!

We both read the book Sharp Objects– and shared our opinions of it! I love when we have different takes on the same book – but both still liked it!


I surprised Sean with a “just because” gift. Sometimes it’s important to thank the people who are there to support you day in and day out 🙂

See you in November!
