Elegant Ghost In The Yard

Ghostly White

The house looks so spooky at night with only orange lights,

I have wanted to make yard ghosts for a couple of years.
I originally found these ghosts.

Then I found these beauties.
I love how they look like they are dancing.

I found the youtube video by P. Allen Smith.

I made two of them with my sister.
We ran out of time and fabric for the third one.

I love how they turned out.
I did not add the heads, not sure if I will.
They have spot lights on them for now, 
but, on Halloween night we will put spooky lights on them.

Funny story; I was looking for cheap fabric because they would be outside.
I found pretty shantung fabric on sale for $3.00 a yard.
I knew I couldn't find cheaper, so I bought all of it.
They sales clerk asked what I was making with 9 yards of this fabric.
I hesitated because it is nice fabric.
She almost was not going to give me the fabric when she found out.
Yard Ghosts.
I showed her a picture of what I was making.
She seemed a little more satisfied.
She asked if I was going to at least recycle the fabric after Halloween.
Nope, just put them away with the skeletons and coffins.

They were not hard to make, but you want to have someone help you.
I could not have done it alone.

What other Ghost gets a couture dress.
The party is almost upon us.

The house is ready, now it is time to make lots of spooky food.

Thanks for stopping by.

And BOO To You Too!

I came to say


I can not stay long.
For the clock will strike MIDNIGHT!

I have not been playing hide and go seek.

I wanted to share some of my 
Halloween with you.

I was asked if I would PLEASE have a
Halloween party again.

You would think I had some kind of reputation or something.
Well, kind of.

It has been three years since I have had a party.
I think I may have out done myself this year.
I got creative.
Don't ask me where the energy came from.
Time, well I kind of had to start,
the 1st of October.

We hand delivered the invitations in costume.
This year we added some new friends to the mix.
It is always fun to see their faces when we show up,
in costume so early in October.

I may have an infestation or two.

There are plenty of rats.

Maybe a few crows,
just a few.

A few friends popped for a snack.  
Poor things, they were starving.

There has been so much going on I might go bonkers!

I found out that a picture from years past Halloween is being featured at
So Much Better With Age.
Thank you so much Jamie.

I can't wait to share more.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
