More images showing Halloween is on its merry way!



















Wanted to let ya know the little man is doing much better and went back to school yesterday. He has a little bit to catch up on but is back to himself. Thanks for all the well wishes!


Now I know you may be growing weary already of Halloween scenes..hmmm? I still have things to share so I apologize..right here and now. SO. SORRY. Sound sincere? Believe me I have not done near the things I wanted too....some will have to wait till next year. My mind is already thinking ahead...to Christmas...I know I know. Slap me now! I nestled some fake pumpkins in this old chicken feeder and put it in our kitchen window. I like the fact that this can be used up till Thanksgiving. My neighbor gave me the chicken feeder and of course those are pumpkins from Goodwill & Dollar tree..so all in all a whopping 4.00 was spent. Not bad. Than you have the hurkin long "jeepers creepers" banner......I made it soooo stinkin long I have no place to put it. I wanted it to hang from the top of the mirror...but nope TOOO long. I sprayed some jingle bells black and sparkled them up and added them to every other letter. The black cat Halloween greeetings is from a local store here called "The Outpost"....1.00 is all it was.. but I wanted it to look old so I took some brown shoe polish and went over it and than sanded the heck out of it. I think it looks more authentic now....more "Faux Old".... Miss. Shannon over at "Bless our Nest" inspired me with her little framed Halloween pumpkin so I found a thrift frame and did one myself. I used pop dots to make it 3d. Soooo it is looking a little more eerie here everyday! Hugs, cherry

So darling!!! I love it all! More! More! More!

I'm still at Disneyland but the boys are sleeping in this morning and I had a few quiet moments with my coffee and my laptop so I thought I check in and see what you've been up too.

Disney is decked out for Halloween and it's been so fun for ideas! Especially the Haunted Mansion/Nightmare Before Christmas.

I love the saying Jeepers Creepers. I think my porch is long enough for that saying!!! I'm putting it on my to do list.

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Oh soo much cuteness! Your banner is to die for! And your little pumpkins in the window look like they're just sitting there waiting to greet all who come to visit. You should work for a magazine Cherry. Love all you displays! I "borrowed" one of your ideas on my last post, but gave you the credit. : ) Thanks so much.

Our Complete Family said...

Hey there! I got your sweet comment! Thanks for saying such kind things about my kiddos! To answer your ?... I haven't scrapbooked for Bryce since he was 3. I am WAY BEHIND, aren't I? I keep telling myself that when Caroline is a tad older I will get caught up. I have a closet full of supplies. Now that is a photo I should post! I just need to carve out the time b/c I had so much fun doing that! Oh man~ I have my fingers crossed that you didn't take offense to my post today. I meant nothing bad about plumbers. It just cracks me up when baby pants always ride so low!!! Happy almost Friday girl! xo, Les

shabbyrose said...

I just HAVE to ask, what paper did you use for your banner? If it was scrapbook paper did you put in on thicker paper so it wouldn't curl. Really really wish you would make a tutorial on your banners. LOVE THAT BANNER! You rock!

Tausha said...

When I grow up, I want to be as popular as you! :)
Since you are the queen of glitter, I was wondering if you could give me some tips.
I really want to glitter up the witch shoes and I need some pointers. Tell me, what kind do you use, is there a better kind of glue than another. How much is glitter and where do you get yours? Is Marths' really the best, or does it not matter?
Ok, I thnk that I have asked you enough questions. Thanks for your help!

shabbyrose said...

I love your banner! It rocks! What paper did you use and how did you keep it from curling. Wish you would consider doing a tutorial!

Jill -Forever and Ever House said...

Love all of your halloween-y things!!

I have a question for you...I have loved your "blog wear" so much (ie., header etc), that I decided to go to Shabby Miss Jenn and buy a kit for myself. I was o.k. with the Photoshopping part. However, the installation is "over my head" (i.e, working with HTML codes)!! I have managed to loose all of my widgets ---i.e, blog list etc!! Sigh!!

At this point, I have reached the conclusion that I would like to pay someone to do it for me and I am wondering if you paid someone to set up your blog? If yes, would you mind sharing with me who it was and how much it cost?

Thanks so much!
Jill
