Im back.. with LOTs of pictures!

me and kelly
And I had a lovely time with some of my favorite friends! 
sandy pie
of course everything was halloween themed.. we all brought tons of craft supplies, food and other goodies with us.  We probably could have stayed there for a week and never run out of  anything.
brenda pie
we even had cute halloween plates.. and witches teeth and glow in the dark skeleton heads!

We crafted, and ate and drank and just hung out.  Friday night we built a fire and sat outside chattering.

mmmm!snacking
friday night Sandy heard noises outside after we all went to bed.. which gave me the heebeejeebees and then I couldnt sleep!  there was nothing out there though.
spider creation
we made lots of stuff.. I didnt take many pictures as we were crafting for some reason!    but we all made witches hats and dressed up some skeletons  And we all made candy corn dolls and did some needle felting.  Kelly and I made spiders and I also worked on cutting out some wool pieces for a wool wall hanging that I want to make.

kellys creations! hello
 I made the pumkin with the kitty in it to go inside of this little cloche.  isnt that little cloche adorable?  We all bought them at Mckenzie childs farmhouse store on cayuga lake in Aurora ny.  about an hour from where we were staying.  OMG.. wait till you get to those pictures!  but isnt my little pumpkin guy cute in his little dome home!?  I have plans for that little cloche for every holiday!

On saturday morning we heading out for a litttle field trip to the Mackenzie Childs farmhouse.  We shopped and took a tour of the farm house.. OMG.. amazing.  I have been there before and knew the girls would love it there.  Such a whimsical place.  maybe a little too over the top to live in, but one sure can appreciate the awesomeness of it all! so here is a bunch of pics from there:

What a  fun place to visit!  can you imagine living in such a whimsical place?   You can buy all these furnishings from the store.. for ungodly amounts of money!  we saw a women buying two plant urns.. very beautiful ones.. at over 900.00 each!  can you imagine being able to just go out and spend 2000.00 on two little plant urns to put on your front porch?  though that women probably has no simple little front porch I would think... !

see that couch up there , the one with the checkered pattern?  yeah, only a mere 11,000.00.. I bought my whole living room set for less then 3000.00!!

You guys look like you were having fun for sure! I love all the crafts, but I'm really drawn to the needle felting, something I have not tried.

Wow that doll house has a nicer dining room than I do! I've got to make that adorable spider and mini jack-o-lantern buckets.
