Wishing You A Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween to all you Pumpkin Loving Hearts!!!




Witches' hats and harvest moon
Ghosts that dance to a haunted tune,
Apples, goodies, food galore
Halloween has this and more.
Fairies, gnomes, and funny clowns
Watch as I go 'round the town
Cats and Pumpkins, friends to meet
Everyone says "trick or treat"!
Enjoy your celebrations and Have a Fun and Safe Halloween!!!

The Latest

Hello Lovelies!
Can you feel it?
Halloween is almost here!!!
It has been far too long since I last posted here on my little blog. So much has happened since we last visited.

Update on the latest...We sold my Dad's house, and are expected to move to our new digs at the end of November. Lots to do... packing, working on the new place.
The home to which we are moving to, is basically hideous. The whole thing needs to be re-done. And lucky for us, we enjoy challenges, so we have excepted the role of renovators and repair-ee's. Pretty much the entire house needs work. Slightly overwhelming... But, I do feel blessed though, that there is a place for us to start our new life.
It is bitter sweet, leaving here. So many fond childhood memories, and happy times with my Dad, have happened under this very roof. But, it is time, and necessary for us to rebuild and transform our lives. I am excited, and also scared, about the possibilities of this new chapter. 
It seems as though the days are running together sometimes, and there is a deadline, so work, work, work, we must.

Despite the fact that we are moving, I did, have to do a little decorating, because after all, this is my FAVORITE time of year. I usually have all kinds of things cooked up for celebrating Halloween by this time, but not this year. Too much going on. So simple celebrations, it is.
And that's ok.
Not a great deal of time for artsies this month either, but I did find the time to participate in Retro Café Art Gallery's Tombstone swap. You make 4 and get 4. These are the one's I made...
I went with a Vintage Vixen's theme this year, and of course, I HAD to have one, of Edgar Allen Poe.

And these are the lovely one's I received from the swap. Aren't they just adorable?
So much fun!
If have not ever visited Retro's page, I suggest you do, so many wonderful things to get your creative juices flowing. Indeed.
It is so dark and foggy here this morning as I write to you... Like the movie Sleepy Hollow. I just love that movie. Pretty much any Halloween movies, especially the one's with the Depster in them. Hee Hee.:)
We'll that's it for now, until next time. Have a lovely Day today. And hope you are inspired by the beauty of this wonderful season.
