Tombstone Swap Event

Recently I participated in the 2nd Annual Tombstone Swap which Dani of Ambitions Design hosted and my partner was Jamie ofCreepy Creations. If you haven't met Jamie yet, you have to pop over to her blog and have a look at her wonderful creepy creations!

This is the tombstone that Jamie made for me! Her attention to the small details is awesome! I've given it a perfect place among my Halloween collectibles on the mantle and I'll be posting pictures of my vignettes soon.

And this is my tombstone which I created for Jamie. Knowing that she likes creepy, I went to my "dark side" and this creature came out of the clay.

It was unknown as to what species it was when it was buried and it refuses to R.I.P.! This is how I see creepy.

My FREE Halloween Tree

As a follow up to my tutorial on making yourself a free Halloween tree, I wanted to show how mine came out.

Just a couple of fallen tree branches and a vase to hold them and you have yourself a free tree to decorate with halloween ornaments. How easy is that!

Halloween is 15 days away and there are still some great spooky and sweet Halloween treats available to hang on your tree or create your own little vignette at SpookyTimeJingles! Come by and see what you can find!

October travel

This past weekend was spent traveling with my girlfriends to New England.

Along the highway we passed the Great Pumpkin headed to what we thought would be a pumpkin weigh in contest.

I grabbed my camera and shot this while the car was traveling on I-95! Pretty good picture!

We made a stop in Mystic, Ct. to have pizza at the infamous Mystic Pizza (as in the movie with Julie Roberts) and sunset at the harbour offered me this scene.

The sunset and the ships masts reflecting on the water is my favorite.

We were even treated to a beautiful rainbow as we stopped at Chucky's for coffee.

We were headed into Newport, RI to spend time with our girlfriend, Sue,and the Newport harbour is always a sight to see.

Great time with a great group of friends!
