countdown to halloween...
Just stopping in to wish you a lovely Saturday. We'll be finishing up costumes, carving pumpkins, and baking cookies for the next couple of days. Hope you're having a great weekend filled with Halloween fun. Here are a few holiday links I wanted to share, just in case you don't already know about them:
The Crafty Crow: a huge line-up of wonderful children's crafts, sweets, and more for Halloween
one pretty thing's Halloween Round-ups: brimming with Halloween DIY and fun hand-made ideas
Green Halloween: an entire site (with a blog) dedicated to eco and alternative Halloween choices
family fun costumes: there's still time to make your own costume...here are some great ideas
Martha Stuart Quick and Easy supermarket costumes: just what the title says :)
I'll leave you with these pictures I took at the barn last week. These are my Grandfather's Halloween costumes from the early 1920's. Yes, we've saved them...wouldn't you!?
The one on the left is a mime or maybe a clown. The right is a Native American Indian with head dress. The vintage pumpkin on top of the rack seemed just right.
Thanks for all of your great feed back and enthusiasm about my sack ideas... I've got a bunch more! Next week I hope to share another tutorial, art project, recipe, and a little announcement. See you then!
