Happy Halloween

Boo to You!

Happier than a Pig in Mud had this picture on her bloggie this month. 
I made a Jack-O-Lantern and Frankie tree for the holiday.
I had all of this collected from different places and years.
Of course the Tree Topper Frankie has to have one to collect candy, right?

It is a very special party not to be forgotten..

I have to show ya'll something I saw last week at a local antique mart.  I almost fell out!!

Yes..count them...5 Tinsel Trees!!
Was someone hoarding them?  Where did they come from?  I have 1 only and feel blessed to have it.  I never got the story.

Here mine is from 2009 Christmas Card.  MIL gave it to me!

I love Christmas trees almost as much as Debbie Dabble Christmas!!  I have added a white tree and a 6' green tree to this season's plans.  I'll redecorate the 1 up top too..maybe with gingerbread and apples for my kitchie.

Sneak peek at the new place..
Can't wait to get it decored for Christmas.  I got a HUGE box of ornies at Home Depot on 1 of our many trips there.  I will use the 9 big ornies into a garland at the front door.  I got a set of HUGE plastic bells for the gate too.  Both of these were Martha Stewart's new line.  Our real-estate agent/friend did buy us that Nutcracker for the door too. :D

He'll be Regal and really cap off the look.

I'm joining some places:

Church Country Store Weekend

This tree is sooo nice. 
It would be great in the front room window of a home with that feature.  A dining room or library window so that at night it lit up for the drivers by to see.  They used floral picks and upholstery trim to fill this tree.  And, an olden Santa at the top to finish it off.  That is probably a yard of remnant fabric or a table cloth as the tree skirt.  I bet I could make this for myself or my momma's house with stuff we already have.
  I'm totally inspired!
Light bulb Snowmen!!
Great paint!
I am working on a University of Texas light bulb for my boys Game room tree. :)
Great way to recycle those diet coke with lime cans, huh. lol
I really enjoyed looking around this market at the projects these fine women of God had made.

3 or More Tuesday at The Gypsy's Corner.  She is showcasing her grandson's baby shower.  Never seen such an awesome diaper "cake" idea...ever!!
