Got Halloween??

Good morning

ok, I am sleepy (what else is new), but you've got to understand that I am a woman in need of lots and lots of sleep, I used to be able to survive on 4 or 5 hours, but that is no longer the case, is this old age?? Failing health???

who knows.

So, yeah...I'm tired, very tired because I stayed up late last night watching the world series, but it was worth is because the Red Sox slaughtered them.

This makes me miss New England even more, my homesickness is always strongest in the fall and until Christmas...but this in particular makes me ache for home, the baseball energy in the air.

I know, I know, I go on and on....but seriously I love the Red Sox.

le sigh.

So yesterday was a nice day, Keith and I worked in the morning and then went out in the afternoon for a short while to get much needed errands done, they were the most fun type of errands because they were all Halloween related.

yup, I got my costume....finally and I must say I love it. All the ideas I had before were thrown out the see I was going over lots and lots of vintage images (in preparation for the beginning of the binge of painting that will come before I get my prints made) and I realized what I am drawn to, every time, and that is the idea of the original party girls themselves...the flappers.

So that is what I went with, though I decided to opt out of the costume with the fringe and instead go for more of a silent film movie darling...more deco than anything else....lots of black and gold and low cut, fabulous little hat, fabby gloves and bling....

I will def post photos.

Keith will be Batman, he tried on his costume yesterday and he looked so sexy, then I felt odd for thinking that, but I guess I am just a sucker for a man in a mask and a cape.

We also got the beginnings of decorations for the party, including these wonderful blood spatters to put on our windows and walls...also some bloody hand prints.

Then it was off to the pumpkin sale in town where we got two lovely grown up pumpkins and 3 teeny tiny ones, including one "albino" pumpkin in honor of our good luck albino squirrel that roams the perimeter of the Chateau.

(I named the squirrel gustave, just so you know).

Once we got home we enjoyed an old timey horror movie, The House On Haunted Hill, a visit from my bff Steve and then well, baseball...duh.

So there you have it, it seems like nothing it was one of those days that ached just on the edge of perfection. for some news about the shop. Yesterday I listed my new mini blank note cards. Can I just tell you that they are wonderful beyond words, little cards and little envelopes.

the cards were all made by kittycrossbones for me and the little envelopes were made by moonparade and they were done with antique paper..I could just die.

They started to sell very quickly and the numbers of these are I do advise to get them now while you still can.

I also got another order of rings...which I have not listed yet, but they are hot...HOT!!!!! Email me if you want to see the designs before they go up.

ok, enough babble....the pictures today are of my mini cards which are available in my shop.

I love your mini cards! My grandmother made me some for a bday one year (long long ago!) that I still have. They are just about vintage now ;) Cute little ladies whose faces are made from antique buttons with wisps of fabric for hats...too cute!

The mini cards are wonderful!

Halloween sounds like it will be a blast at your house!

My daughter turns 15 tomorrow and she made me promise not to decorate for her party like Halloween (even though it is her favorite holiday!)

Can we discuss Joaquin some more? He was Leaf? His birthday is in 3 days, are you sending him a card? He was with River when he died? His sister is married to Casey Affleck? He's a strict vegan? He's very handsome.

oh man, I'm going to have to come up with a costume, and again, I'm not going to know what to do. I haven't even pulled last year's decorations out yet. Maybe next year...

The cards look wonderful...and the envelopes too! I am a little jealous that you have an albino squirrel (I did not know they came that way...although, I knew pumpkins did) I am excited to see you in all of your Halloween glory!
