A Little Bit of "Spooky" Fun!

~ I'm a 'tad' late in posting for Vanessa's Halloween party as it was a busy weekend!
We had a blast at CA Adventures Halloween party and my costumes turned out great, but I forgot to take pics...I promise on Halloween!
We skipped going to Oak Glen on Saturday since we were all pooped from Friday night and plan on going the first weekend of November. We won't be so rushed then and can relax and have some country bumpkin fun!
Here are some pics of my deco's. I played around with photo shop a bit to make them a little extra spooky!


I can't wait to visit all the other blogs that played along with the party!




I just love this spooky sign! On top is my collection of Wish Bones.
I keep them on hand in the kitchen in case I need a extra wish or two!

I am extremely unhappy with the quality of spider web I found at 3 seperate stores! This was the best I could do. If you know where I can find high quality web for next year, do tell!

I actually think the spider web looks great!! Very spooky indeed!
No real advice except maybe finding a really large spider who'll work for you? ;) :D

Wow...what a party. So many party goers, so little time...sorry I'm late. I love all of your decorations, especially the bulletin board full of halloween goodness. Did you make the cute party hats and cones? They are lovely.

Thanks for sharing,

Happy Halloween! I'll never get thru the party list myself; I'm only up to the "F" section! Isn't this fun? I love your decorations; my mom has the exact same nut holder with the squirrel on top as you do. What a small world...

Very cool decor! Thanks for sharing! Our family is definately a big haunted mansion fans!

NanaBeth said...

I know the quality of spider web ahs certainly gone down hill. Did you try Target's? That's where I usually get mine.
You are no doubt the supreme Halloween Diva and I shall now "poof" you on the Fiskateer board. In fact you;re so good, I may have to hand my magic "poofing" wand over to you!

Julie O. said...

Wow...you HAVE been busy!!

Thanks for the Cosco tip. I will definitely be looking into that!

Donna said...

Love your blog! I adore the cat with the hat in the second picture!! I wish I lived in the California area - sounds like you had a blast !

Bejeweled said...

Oh, I completely forgot about this fun blog party! Your decorations are wonderfully spooky! I love the wish bones on top of your "bad to the bone" sign!!

Our spiderweb is pretty lame too - doesn't stick to anything and keeps gobbing up. I think yours looks good!

craftyhala said...

it all looks spooktacular!

MaryNSC said...

HOLY SPOOKS.. U done GREAT!!

Scrappy Rat said...

Is that the prisioner from the Haunted Mansion at Disney World? That is my favorite ride *ever*. I love the Manor Phantome at Paris Disney, too. The graveyard outside is incredible and you can actually walk around the outside of the house. Neat!

Danice said...

Boy oh boy! it all looks great! i grab a bag of mini choc bars and hand them at the door and thats the extent of my halloween! i love the spider web! plenty of time to breed your own trapdoor spiders to make it real for next year! otherwise you will have to keep eyes peeled in the halloween sales!

Tracee said...

Beautiful work!! Loving the cones. Perhaps Lilliput and I will attempt them this afternoon...if not, I'm feeling like a halloween garland.

Thanks!

MamaSheg said...

You have the most amazing collection of Halloween decorations!! BTW, I love the Halloween ATC card you made for the Fisk-a-teers swap. XOOXO

cindy said...
