DIY Spell and Potion Book Tutorial from Better After. This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, a glue gun, cardstock, paper towels etc… This DIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait until later to download it.
BRB, got work to do in the library.
Another to-read pile that got out of control.
One more reason that reading is dangerous. It gives people ideas and whatnot, and causes avalanches.

This awesome LEGO model of the Fawlty Towers hotel foyer was created by 21-year-old Cornell University student and LEGO builder Nathan Feist. It’s full of delightful details from the hysterical 1970s British sitcom about a dysfunctional little hotel in the seaside town of Torquay (on the ‘English Riviera’), written by and starring the inimitable John Cleese and his then-wife Connie Booth. Note the fire extinguisher, fire alarm, and the infamous moose head that hangs above the lobby desk (for now), complete with its broken antler.
Feist showed off his creation at BrickFair Virginia, but he says the model is actually still a work in progress:
'I plan to modify this and post another set of photos once I get some parts I don't yet own and will maybe even build the upstairs or exterior.'
Whatever you do, don’t go in there asking for a Waldorf salad.

Nicely done. Moose and fire extinguisher are featured in the episode “The Germans”, one of the best of the best.
I have made poor choices.
