Happy Halloween 2012!




 {This Gorgeous Bohemian Candelabra is on my Christmas 'Wish List' now!}



{Placing our Love on Butterflies Wings for Departed Loved Ones and placing them upon a Dia de los Muertos Sacred Heart Altar to Honor & Remember those who have Passed... Princess T always likes her Costumes to be Exotic Dance Style so she can Dance for departed Grandpas and Great-Grandpas... the Intent is Beautiful & I know they must be Smiling down from Heaven...}
{'Scored' this pair of Goofus Glass Vases just before Halloween.}


 {My most recent Creepy Vintage Old Baby 'Score' before Halloween... only Five Bucks!}
 {The Son's Halloween Costume for Work... Cyborg Soldier.}

The Decor has been tweaked to Perfection... with Inspiration and Halloween Inspired Found Treasures Gleened from various Sources over the past couple of Months.  The Candy Dishes have been filled with favorite Treats.   The Pumpkins picked from the Harvest Festival Pumpkin Patches and carved into Jack~O'Lanterns.  Others 'Picked' from the Creations of Local Artisans who Crafted faux lucious Fabric ones.  The Dia de los Muertos Altars Honoring, Remembering and Celebrating Loved Ones who have passed from Time into Eternity are Lovingly Constructed and Ofrendas made & placed upon them by Family & Friends.  The Fresh Marigolds have been grown in the Garden that will Grace the Altar.  The Costumes are hanging ready for Tonight's Trick~Or~Treating rounds in the Neighborhood.  The Cult Classic Horror Movies and Fav Halloween Programs are ready to be Enjoyed afterwards as the Evening draws to a close and the Little Ones are finally tucked into bed with Sugar Blazes still coursing through their veins. *LOL*  This is the culmination of all of the Events leading up to Halloween Night... may it be a Memorable one for you too my Friends with Time Honored Traditions and Celebrations that are Meaningful to you all.
