Getting In The Mood

The weather is cooling down and the leaves are starting to turn different colors.  My fall decorations are slowly being worked into each room in the house. 
The best part is that HALLOWEEN is just around the corner and that means it is time for a

I found a new blog this week full of fun ideas and a new link party. 
 Being the party girl I thought I would join Wendy from Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland for Spooky Mondays.

After many years of wanting to have a Halloween party, I finally got my wish last year and it was SO worth it.  I would recomend hosting one if you have never done so.  There is a bonus, cob webs in the corners are acceptable, no dusting necessary.  Here are a few pictures from last years' HALLOWEEN.

Afraid of spiders?

Eyeballs anyone?

Story time.

Dinner by candlelight?

I have already been thinking of how I will deliver my invitations this year.  Last year we served up GHOSTLY severed fingers in a box.  Actually it was really funny, no one would open their doors to us because my sister and I hand delivered all the invitations IN COSTUME.  No one new who we were and it was broad daylight, the middle of October, would YOU open the door to the headless horseman?

If you are looking for ideas or just like Halloween then you don't want to miss visiting all of the blogs signed up for this party.  I stopped by a few from the past two weeks and I just can't wait to get to the craft store.



  1. I'm terrified of spiders!!!
    but I love it anyway!!
    Thanks for the heads up on the linky..Can't wait to check it out!

  2. I love it. thanks for sharing your spookness with us... I will back by said the ghostly voice.

  3. The idea of you delivering your invites dressed up made me giggle.

    It must have been a riot.
    Your decor, and enthusiasim must thrill your kids. How can they sleep at night waiting for the day when they can run wild begging for candy? It was hard enough as a kid, waiting, with no decorations to remind me....
    Just pure fun, Alaina.

  4. Alaina? Do you really have all this stuff out already? It is the middle of September!

  5. Any time I don't have to dust sounds great to me. Love all your spooky decor! Would have loved to see photos of you two dressed up.
