happy halloween!

wow, is it halloween already??!  my poor pumpkins haven't had a thing done to them...i had hopes of making them look like these charlie brown ones.  taylor decided they needed stickers, i decided one needed a mask...tonight, i am getting out the black paint...i mean it's time, they look pitiful!

i did put out some decorations...well, i bought a mum and i found the box w/ our halloween stuff....

before i decorate, i have to take advantage of my dad being here.....finally i'm doing something to poor taylor's room and making this headboard.  it's taken long enough!

halloween weekend is always a lot of fun....both sets of grandparents come to see the kids trick or treat...we eat a lot, have a beverage or two, and play games (have you played apples to apples- fun stuff...especially if you have a beverage or two)...this is what's we are having tomorrow night: oysters and ina's coconut cake but we are making them into cupcakes.

sunday night we are trick or treating....taylor's going as a garden fairy...we practiced yesterday by trick or treating downtown.

walker didn't practice but he is going as a skeleton that glows in the dark like the bad boys on karate kid....classy i know :)

and that pretty much sums up how we are going to spend our halloween....i hope y'all have a fabulous weekend and that you get lots of yummy candy (i like to "share" taylor's reese cups and anything that is sour and gummy)!!  see you next week!

Firstly, your garden fairy is adorable and I'm sure you little skeleton will be very spooky (funny..my little girl is dressing up in a similar bouquet of flowers and my little 2 year old boy is also being a skeleton- great minds!) Also, can't wait to see the La Fiorentina headboard- I just happily scored 4 yards on ebay for $80- yippie! I am dying to see it on a headboard Have a great Halloween!!

Happy Halloween to you too!!!

I made that headboard last weekend. I added nailhead trim to mine. It takes awhile but I managed it by myself. You should have no problems with your dad helping.

Please remind me where you sourced the gorgeous fabric next to the headboard picture. I remember seeing it first in something Ruthie Somers did, but don't know where the fabric actually comes from. Thanks!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I too purchased a yellow mom plant as I felt the lack of fall decor outside - worked wonders.

I love your blog. Check out my new blog on home decor and other fun items - www.lovinthat.blogspot.com

How about a step by step to making that headboard?! Looks awesome!! Love your blog, just stumbled upon it from Little Green Notebook. I have that same la fiorenta fabric picked out to upholster my vintage chippendale faux bamboo armchairs!
