WELCOME!
OK.. so I'm a bit obsessed! Kari is hosting a halloween gathering, and I thought Id invite you all in as well.. some of these pictures youve seen.. but most you have not! so take a stroll through.. and have a peek into my halloween crazyness. My daughter Bethany told me this weekend that she thinks I have a "problem" and that I need an "intervention!" I dont see any problems do you? enjoy.. off to work I go now!

















































UH oh! I think I broke it.. it wont upload the rest of my pictures.. does anyone know what I need to do to fix it.. this is going to upset me terribly! !!!!!!!!!

You really have a large collection with so many unique pieces! Thanks for inviting us and come over to my blog. I too have much more, but didn't get it all out this year.

Let you daughter know that you are in good company. So many of us share the same {ahem} problem. LOL

I absolutely adore your skeletons with party hats. So very, very cool.

If you have a moment, swing by my harvest gathering. Don't forget to bring your pumpkin!

All your decorations are just beautiful !!! The outside is lovely. Truly in the spirit of an ~Autumn Gathering~. I am so glad to have stopped by. Happy Halloween.

inge said...

yes.. you need an intervention...

Maybe I can join you ? I felt welcome immediately when I heared the music of "nightmare before christmas"... I like your entrance door : the wreath is very beautiful with the orange berries on and your felted cat and other stuff is very nice !

greetings from Belgium

Fran said...

WOW!! Love all your Halloween decorations. It was nice of you to invite us in. What Fun!!
Your cat's eyes look great shinning. I have a big black cat and he goes to the door with me to hand out candy on Halloween. The kids love it, they are amazed at how big he is. :-) 27 1/2 lbs is a bit large.
Have Fun at your Halloween gathering.
Thank you for you nice comments about my Victoria Winter.
Hugs

jenneroni said...

No, I have to agree a little bit with Beth. An intervention might be in order. :-p How come you didn't tell me you made my favorite pumpkin cut out cookies??? They are my most favorite cookies in the world and I didn't know they were there! Will they be at Brenda's tonight? If so, I'm definitely coming.

I like that pumpkin-head pin cushion. Is he new? I never saw him. Very cute. The skeletons...well, you know what I think of those. :-p


Ps, the coffee shop opens at 6 and closes at 9, but keeps their lights (and internet) on until at least 9:30, so no way am I going to pay for internet when I can completely steal theirs. Haha!

Love, Jen :o)

howloween hugz!

Julie said...

You have an amazing collection. I love the standing pumpkin and your porch!

As for the Cinderella Pumpkin.. I used a foam one - so it was easy to cut and put the frame door into it. What I had a hard time with was the pumpkin wheels. The only ones I could find that were the right size - were made of resin so 2 of the 4 broke when I was drilling the holes in them for the dowel rod. The large pumpkin should be sitting up on the dowel rods with 4 pumpkin wheels - not 2..and so far I have not found any tiny white mice to place around it and I did find a princess - but she was a bit more $$ than I wanted to spend..so I will keep looking. The skelton you gave me makes a great door man though - don't you think!

Julie said...

..Oh - and I almost forgot.. I Have been working on the Santa and Mrs Santa and I am thrilled with how they came out. Since I am giving them to my daughter though - and she reads my blog - I cannot post a picture of them :0(
