Heart-Shaped Hot Tubs, Pools and Other Romantic Backyard Destinations - A Picture Gallery of Heart-Shaped Hot Tubs and Romantic Pools
Maybe Jayne Mansfield and Mickey Hargitay ignited the concept with their heart-shaped swimming pool, which was custom-built in the backyard of their Beverly Hills home back in the 1950s. Novelty-shaped swimming pools became popular for those who could afford them (like movie stars) in the mid-20th Century. It was only natural that the wood-barrel hot tubs of the 1970s paved the way for an intimate experience. Ads for resorts in the Poconos featured heart-shaped hot tubs, and the rest is history.

Grandin Road Spooky Willow Halloween Tree | Spooky Willow Halloween Tree by Grandin Road | Review of Grandin Road Spooky Tree
If you had just one nice Halloween decoration to buy this year for your porch, patio, balcony or yard, what would it be? Scary flamingos? A screaming ghoul sure to knock the orange-and-black socks right off of you? An attractive Halloween-themed door mat?

Grandin Road Spider and Web Solar Tombstone - Review of Grandin Road Spider and Web Solar Tombstone
I've never been a big fan of tombstone props, maybe because I've seen so many bad ones, or perhaps because the idea is just a bit too morbid. Grandin Road's Spider and Web Solar Tombstone has more of a haunted Gothic mansion appeal to it than anything gross, gorey, ominous or depressing. I also don't have a lawn -- I have native California plants in my front yard, so I wasn't sure how a tombstone would look. But placed among the native grasses and coleus, this tombstone looks Halloweenish. Page 3.
