Haunted horror-themed house in Seattle

This week's home tour is a my special Halloween gift to y'all — a haunted house in a de-commissioned B&B in Seattle. It's all decked out the way you'd hope a haunted house would be — antique child's coffin coffee table, antique Halloween goods, metaphysical library, "haunted" ventriloquist dolls, and even snakes abound in this house.


Tour a tiny loft with an elevated bed

My house feels too big! After three days in a minimalist loft in Seattle, I'm thinking it's time to hoist the bed and use some of the ideas this small space sent home with me.

The Empire gathers in Seattle NEXT MONTH for a huge party and Geek Girl Con

You guys, Geek Girl Con is just a month away and I am stoked. Most of the Offbeat Empire staff will convene in Seattle, WA, meaning — I'll get to meet my cohorts and even better, we'll get to meet readers! If you're even considering coming out, read all the details on Ariel's big bad Con post. We'll have a panel on Sunday at the Con AND — and I'm a little frightened for this — a mad party that Friday night featuring nerdy burlesque, cupcakes, and some crazy karaoke. Please note: I do a mean karaoke interpretive backup dance.

Read up and make plans. I can't wait!
