Happy Halloween

We fancy men are individuals, so are pumpkins; but every pumpkin in the field goes through every point in history.

I just loved these little pumpkin mushrooms and snails and so wanted to make them this year, but here we are Halloween evening and not a pumpkin mushroom to be found.

I've only got a few moments to spare because I've got to get Lydia ready for trick or treating and then we are off to a Halloween party. I'm sporting my spider earrings and Dino is going as an Italian guy (we're so lame).

Lydia decided to dress up 1980's style ~ aka Desperately Seeking Susan. Creating her costume has been so much fun. We've been looking back at some of my old photos (being a teen from the 80's) she keeps asking me questions like "What time did you have to get up to do your hair?" "Were you hot wearing all those accessories?" And the best "Did you dress like this everyday?" We did...the funkier the better. I was even able to find one of my old jackets....I believe its "vintage" now hee hee! What do you think???

Time for me to go tease some big hair on my girl. Wishing you all a safe and happy Halloween.

Have like a totally spooky evening.

xoxo Jenn

Sooooooo Funny Jenn...
I've had so many projects I've wanted to do and then the occasion just Magically seemed to go by!!! Maybe it's 'AGE'...
Anyway, the Pumpkin Mushrooms are a great idea...Just think, There's ALWAYS NEXT year!!!

Hope your 'Halloween' was ALL Treats...
