a very quick good morning to you!

ohh.. blogland.. how I love you!   its all love and sunshine over here.  and when there are issues we deal with them sweetly among us don't we?  oh but then there is face book.  I had to run from there this morning.   tooo. much. political. bull. 
I'm so glad we keep that out of here.  or at least where I visit, there is none.   And I wont bring it here today. .  just saying that I'm grateful for my bloggy friends that keep it sweet and drama free!   xoxox!

Of course I'm over here surrounded by Halloween stuff.  lots and lots of it.  was thinking about what makes it all so special.  Most of my collection is handmade by myself or friends.   I do have a bunch of Bethany Lowe  and Lori Mitchel store bought stuff and some other trinkety store bought pieces.. but most of this crazy collection you cant find anywhere else.  I like that. 

Its the same for all my holiday collections of STUFF!  

speaking of other holidays...   there are only 9 weeks til Christmas!  5 paydays for me...  66 days!  but I'm not really thinking about that yet...     lol!  not until after Halloween.. then its full steam ahead!  lol!  OK.. just a quick stop in.. I have to get ready for work.  
have a happy happy day lovies! 
ps... thanksgiving..  cant forget about thanksgiving!  thats only 35 days from now.. just so you know.  heehee!

halloween trees

I've been wanting to get over here to put up a new post, but I've been sick.. AGAIN!  feeling better today, which is good, because I have a Halloween tea party here this afternoon.  I had contemplated cancelling it.. and truthfully, I probably should have, because I'm still not great.   but I shall disinfect every surface that any of my ghoul friends might come in contact with before they get here.  And all food will be made with a Mask on my face and hands scrubbed clean with disinfectant soup.  Seriously.  I don't want to share my germs!  I hope once this is completely out of my system that I will not get sick again this year!  No.. I don't get a flu shot.  I'm afraid of them......

I haven't been doing anything too crafty this past week.  I did pretty much nothing.   last weekend we had my birthday dinner and every one came over for  lasagna and cake.  All my little grand pies.. several of which had runny noses...  ( I think that's how I keep getting sick...!)  Though in fairness to them for that day.. I already had it.   Anyways..  that's just life in a big family..  we just share stuff!  lol!

I don't have much voice.. when ever I get stuff...   it almost always settles in my voice.  I am prone to laryngitis.  Some of my family members might appreciate that!  lol!  So, my guests today will have to do most of the talking and entertain me.  

Soo.. do you think I should condense and just buy one big Halloween tree or keep putting 5 smaller ones out every year?    Do you think I have too many?  I think I'm nuts..  5 Halloween trees??  really???   one on the mantel, one over the TV, one in the kitchen, one in my craft room and one on the porch..    Oh, whatever.. whats so nuts about that??  LOL! 

Its ok, I know the truth girls..  I know that I'm a little over the top.. I know that I get a little obsessed about certain things...    but in reality, I'm not hurting anyone and I'm happy..  right???   maybe I need some medicine! lol!
OK.. I need to go disinfect my house..  
have a great weekend.

skellie love

There's a party in my kitchen!  lol!  how funny to find Frannie sitting on Betty bonecrackers lap this morning!  I was immediately inspired to dress the picture up a bit ..  had to help them celebrate that its OCTOBER!   one of my favorite months.  

And in the living room Boney Neroni is taking a break from his presidential campaigning  to warm up by pumpkin glow!  lol!  

While Bonita enjoys a sunny break on the porch.   I really have considered buying another skellie to put in a chair outside.. but really... how many skeletons should a girl have?  LOL!!  

Heres last years pic of Boney.. perfect for election year!   I think hes quite qualified in comparison..
lol!!  though honestly.. nothing funny about this election...  :(  
anyways...  Im not thinking about it.. 
 gotta think of something fun to do today.   
have a great weekend!

oh the halloween cuteness!!

In this little house..

 In this little room..  with these little babies nearby....

This happen!

Lillianna grace...

Violet and Scarlet pies

Torry bat boy!

Marla pie!
 Scarlet cutie pie!

and Seraphina kitty cat!

such fun!!!
and did you notice these?  soo cute!   so simple!   seen on pinterest...

I had hubby cut the curves off two Shepard's hooks.  Then I cut 2 holes in each pumpkin, alternating sides.. slid them over the poles, and filled them with small mum plants!  then I cut holes in the bottom of two small plastic pumpkins and stuck them on top as finales!  I love them!  
okeedokie.. this was just a quick touch base.. I need to go take a shower so I can watch the debates.. 
should be painfully interesting as I cant stand either of them.
I'll be blog hopping in the morning!!
til then.. toodles!

a batty little quicky craft..

Something easy peasy and only takes a couple minutes.    I saw this on pinterest.. so I cant take credit for it.   But it looks so cool at night when the light is on!  

All you have to do is make a little bat pattern and cut it out of black paper.  I would have used construction paper if I had had some.   Then just cut them out, put some rolled tape on the front of them and stick them inside your lamp shades!

 I got carried away and put them on three shades in the living room..  might be cute to tie a thread to one and have it hanging below the shade!  I may have to do that myself, since I just thought of it now.  

Anyways...  that's all for now..  just wanted to share that with you.    and, yes.. I have Halloween out now.  Just inside.   I haven't done outside or the porch or my craft room yet either.   And, the skellies are still in their closet.  but I was thinking of bringing them out this weekend.  we'll see!  anyways.. have a great weekend bloggy friends!
