It’s All About Halloween

I know that many of you are eagerly awaiting some more photos and info from Market. Others of you want to know about new patterns.That's coming up next…

However, around here it has been all about Halloween since our plane touched down from Houston a few short days ago. All. About. Halloween. Just a few shots…





And of course, it was all about the Woodland Fairy! For those of you on faceebook, this is old news but… Gotta love how an orange leotard, some tulle, a bag full of fall foliage from Michael's can come together with my trusty glue gun! I had so much fun!!




And just to be clear…. I do have two teenage boys around here somewhere. One was a 60's hippie and escaped the camera to go to a Halloween party. The other was a zombie laying somewhere in the grass behind those pumpkins… trying to scare as many unsuspecting trick or treaters as possible. Gotta love him.

So as you can see, much fun was had by all. Happy the Day After Halloween to everybody!

    Decades ago, I dressed my son, who was about 5, in a hippie costume, long hair wig, beads, etc. when a lady opened the door, she called to her husband to “come see this cute little girl!” My son was mortified and yanked off his wig, while running home as quickly as he could 🙂

    What a great costume, neat idea! Please share with us the toile skirt, how did you do that, stitched onto the leotard? How big were the squares?
    I have two nieces that would love this!!

    Your daughter’s costume is awesome; she makes a great fairy. I love your decor too. Too bad we can’t see your sons. My sons were the same way too when they were growing up; they wanted nothing to do with cameras.

    Thanks so much for the comment on my blog the other day. I
    had to laugh out loud when you called her your little cashier— she
    so wants to be just like her brothers and believes that she can do
    anything they can do!

  16. Joanna | 5th Nov 13

    Yes, she might :-).

  17. Joanna | 5th Nov 13

    Thank you Shirley. She loves to dress up!


  18. Joanna | 5th Nov 13

    Okay. I wont.

    My boys go back and forth. Usually if it involves sports or something that they like, they are more than happy to pose. But not Halloween unfortunately.
