Halloween Decor & Twins???
October is the month of Halloween...Is it not? After all, commercial establishments certainly think that this is true. We are inundated with merchandise long before the actual holiday arrives. In my case it means I eat far more candy than I ever should. And the WW (Weight Watcher) scale proves it. I am not one to buy a lot of silly knick knacks because I am in the downsizing phase of my life. However I do have a few items from years gone by. Frankie is my all-time favorite. He came to live with me from a thrift shop. I found him lying there with his foot showing signs of dog chewing...not too badly though. I gladly paid my $1 and I simply love Frankie!
I keep all my décor very simple. Nothing elegant and nothing over the top in order to keep Mr. C happier. He is not a fan of holidays or celebrations in general. Some childhood traumas that I honor.
I have been wanting to find a child's toy truck for decorating but am not interested in paying the high prices for rust and wear. Fortunately when doing the downstairs reno I discovered this perfect wooden truck we already have which was living in the library on a top shelf. What? I love this handmade rolling truck! It was a gift from friends long ago. Now I no longer need or want some overpriced rusty metal truck. It pays to shop our own homes.
I love everything I receive from creative friends and swaps I participate in and find it fun to display them for enjoyment each year. Thank you clever friends who gift me.
I am still sewing for Dress a Girl Around the World and participate in Donna's group Dressed in Joy. There are links to each of these if you just click on them. I wonder if there are any twins out there that would enjoy dressing alike? Two cute dresses for little girls to twirl in.
I am off to the Chamber once again and I will no doubt get those questions. We have not had the cold snap yet and the Fall colors are in stages of done, trying and not ready yet.
Lets call this Finish it Friday so I feel like I have accomplished something. My days are going faster and getting shorter in sunshine so I feel like I should be in bed and it is barely after 7 o'clock PM.
Creative Bliss as you enjoy your days making something wonderful...
