'Curious Chili' chocolate ganache skull from D.L. & Co., purveyor of gorgeous gothic-baroque-victorian-art nouveau goods, edible and not. Their website is really beautiful too.
Dean & Deluca has teamed up with D.L. & Co. to exclusively carry a boxed set of three chocolate ganache skulls and these:
The candle is a good deal at half price ($45). Most of D.L. & Co.'s candles run $100 or more.

If you're like me you live in a pre-war apartment with ancient, noisy radiators and no control over when the heats turns on or off; windows are my thermostat. But whether you control your heat or not, it's worth reading Low Impact Living's article with suggestions for saving energy this winter.

There are many reasons to love Taschen Books. These 11 durable Hotels & More, Restaurants & More, and Shops & More guide books have great photos and maps, information, and a space for notes. Plus they have adorable silkscreened covers. Several of these titles are being released in November and December.

I love this simple way of making plain everyday flats look dressed up by tying a shiny satin ribbon around the foot. If you have shiny flats a matte silk ribbon would probably be just as nice. Courtesy of the November/December issue of Blueprint.
