Still here....


Happy belated Halloween.... The cold I mentioned earlier this (now last) month turned into a nasty case of bronchitis. Also, it's craft show season so the studio has been in overdrive mode. Even my DH has been getting in on the pixie prepping action. Check back in a few days for photos :-) In the meanwhile, here's a little glimpse of our spooky decor. Our house was built over 100 years ago, so she dresses up well for all holidays, but especially Halloween! (iF you click on the mosaic below, it will pop up with a much better quality view... not sure why it looks so blurry in the one below) And for those of you have asked, yes those are Disneyland Haunted Mansion Portraits from the Streching room (reprints, of course). They used to sell them at a Disney-owned Art Gallery outside of the park, but we purchased them from ebay). We leave them up year round. They lend a sense of humour to an otherwise stuffy Victorian parlor. :-)

That was always my favorite part of visiting Disneyland as a kid, seeing those pictures as they stretched out in the Haunted Mansion. How cool that you have a set up year-round in your parlor. :-)
