This is Halloween!

What is it about Halloween that makes me ooze with creativity?  I just love it!  Even though we get exactly ZERO goblins who trick-or-treat, I enjoy costuming (I believe that's a word) the house.  Now that the "young" are really getting into Halloween, I am compelled to outdo myself.

I started with a wreath of sorts inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

Then came The Witch is Dead vignette...
 
And the Headless Man in the chair...
After Chuck retired, I thought I would never have to look at that ugly UVA sweater again.
Works well in October, I must say.
 
I monogrammed a pumpkin (love my Silhouette machine!):



And it all came together like this:

Our house color never photographs well.  It's more yellow than it appears here.
Hey, Chuck.  Let's paint it gray!
 
 Inside we have my new Witch on her Broom decal from Martha.  I love it!

She's huge!

And, returning once again this year, the mice running amok!
 Don't worry.  Fake candles only.
 
 After all that hard work, I think it's time for a Halloween cocktail! 
I'll try The Black Widow:
 
  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • 0.5 oz. triple sec
  • 0.5 oz Sour Puss Sour Raspberry
  • 2 oz. pomegranate juice
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with plastic spider.

    3. This is ahhhhhh-mazing! I especially love the decal. Reminds me of my crazy aunt who used to dress as the scariest of witches on Halloween... I was always totally spooked! ;)
