WHO LET THE GHOSTS OUT?

chlbrd

My friend, Susie, made this “BOO” banner.  S-h-h-h-h.  Don’t tell her I told you this, but the first time she made it, the banner read, “OOB”, but she quickly figured it out, and rearranged the letters!

Susie also gave me this great Halloween pillow (yes, she’s a very generous friend),

and I placed it on my “new-to-me” sofa, that I purchased at half price on the last day of an estate sale.  My husband said I was the only person he knows who could take a trip to a Blues Festival and come home with a sofa from an estate sale.  He obviously doesn’t know all of my blogging friends!

I love my new sofa, and I love my new Halloween pillow.  Thanks Susie, and thanks to my sweetheart for getting my sofa loaded on the truck at the Blues Festival.  Susie also made me an “Autumn” banner.  Isn’t it cute?autumn

Kristen at Kristen’s Creations crafted this pretty “Welcome Fall” picture.

It was so nice of you to stop by for a visit.  Yes, I confess it was me.  I let the ghosts and goblins out!  Laurie

Thank you so much for coming by to get my “professional” advice about what to do on those days when you just can’t do a thing with your hair!  Laurie

THINGS GOT UGLY AT THE PARTY!

When I left for work the other day, I accidentally left a window open.  I came home to find a witch party in my house.  They had flown in the window, stolen my brooms, and were all over the house.

They even brought the musical group, Cool Cats, to play for their party!

I guess this old hag has lost her broom-riding powers, so she rode in on a pig-powered cart!

If I wanted to try their spread on a cracker, I had to steal one of the witch’s shoes.  I’m glad they thought about covering my “not for food” plate with saran wrap.  I would have hated to have a bunch of sick witches in my house!

These pumpkin heads must have been acting up, because they were imprisoned under glass.

I wanted to try some of their food.  After all, it is MY house.  But every time I reached for something, it began to spin around, and those witches just cackled at me!

They even turned my clown into a witch!

THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT

I'm linking this post of my Halloween decor to Fiberdoodles for Sharon's Halloween party. Of course, I never miss an opportunity to link to Little Red House for Mary's Mosaic Monday.











































Can you tell I've been having fun shopping in the Etsy stores? Let me tell y'all, everything I've ordered looks better in person than it did in the photos on Etsy. I ordered some things to give as gifts, but when I unwrapped them, I knew I was going to have trouble giving away any of these creations.
