my daughter Marina posted this darling image from her sketchbook of this little pumpkin guy~

perfect whimsy and fun, i couldn't resist making this little stuffed guy.  peter's twin...

he has a paper clay painted head and a painted fabric stuffed body.  just the right amount of 

two more Halloween images from Marina's sketchbook that i just loved!
lil bat girl

and lil pumpkin girl.

she loves halloween as much as i do. 

i have decided even though i spend a lot of time in the studio working on orders for the shop, i still need
time just for me to create whatever i feel like.  no strings attached kind of a thing.  

plus i just have pumpkins on the brain right now.  it is time to harvest our patch of ghost pumpkins we 
grew in the garden and there is a neighborhood chili and cobbler cook off this saturday with a pumpkin
carving contest!

halloween party time

i'm the one who woke up this morning for fall break and wanted to go to ihop for pancakes...
my kids wanted to sleep in....

instead i will plan my halloween party!  my second favorite holiday, i just wish october were a wee bit longer so i could celebrate.  not enough dark and spooky nights for me.

this fabulous tissue fan garland from Everlylanedesign would be perfect over the table.  i don't know why i can't get enough of these tissue fans lately.

here are the spooky eyes halloween lollipops from vintage confections i want for the table centerpiece~

and here is a new take on a witches costume for my witches night out~
from BatCakesCouture

my hand dyed trees are on page 17

now i just need a few fabulous creations from cat and fiddle studio for decorating
this great Nosferatu is in a vintage baking tin.
 and the sour pumpkins are wonderful fun.

happy fall break,

high tea at the little yellow couch~

the shop made the front page of the little yellow couch  today.  love the black and white theme for a tea party.  those are my vintage crepe paper ruffles No. 4     time for some spidery tea cakes don't you think~

these ghost pops from delish would do the trick, i love the fog in the photo....
or how about the black widow goat cheese log. not very appetizing since we found a black widow in the shower this week!

you could send out these fun vintage party invitations and you would be ready to go.
hope you are enjoying a wonderful fall evening,
