blog #173 >> It's time for a Halloween Party!

Today is the day of Vanessa's Halloween Party, and I don't have anything ready yet! That's what I get for procrastinating. Well, you know what they say, "Procrastinators, the leaders of tomorrow... that is if we ever get around to it." I'll just start posting now and add more throughout the day.

(Please enter if you dare...)

I'm brewing up a very spookie party here. I've managed to get the house properly dusty and I even pulled the special cobwebs out of the basement and attic just the the occasion. And since no party is complete without prizes, I'll be doing a drawing for this garland. Just leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Monday and then the winner can send me their address.

Don't let the pictures bother you, they're always changing.

Here I'll light up the pumpkin lanterns for a nice eerie glow.

Help yourself to some treats, but no tricks please.

Even Vinnie got to come out of his cage for awhile.

Oh, it was too much party for me. I melted!

Come back again...

After you stopped by my place, I snuck out to drop in on your party. Love, love the decorations - the plant is so faublous, haven't seen one of those in a long time. And the treats were good too! It was so nice to meet you! Happy Halloween!

LOL! So sorry that you melted. Loved your party, wonderful caramels! : D


Theresa said...

Oh dear! The internet has been so blinky today I haven't even hardly made a dent in that guest list. This will have to be my project to the week. Wonderful blogs everyone! I just love seeing how different everyone's party is.

Tammy said...

Oh, I love the lanterns and the orange glow they create in the room. Yummy gumdrops and caramels. Thanks for having me. I enjoyed your frightful party.

Patricia said...

What a lovely tale, and expressive photos. I have enjoyed my visit very much. Happy Halloween.

You certainly know how to decorate for a good time. And I am sorry you melted. Hope it is a reversible condition. Medicine has come a long way since Dorothy's time. Also that whole Just-Say-No-to-Buckets-of-Water Campaign has worked wonders.

Happy Holloween!!!
