Haunted Vintage Harvest

We're throwing a SPOOKtacular party this Halloween...and YOU are invited as our special guest of honor!


Each year we like to choose a theme for our holiday spread. Sometimes it's a bit spooky (like these great vignettes we spotted on our last trip to Disneyland)...



And sometimes it's a little mad (like our tea party from last year). 


This year we decided to draw inspiration from our love of all things vintage...


It's a Haunted Vintage Harvest!


We used burlap, faux grain, and moss to give our homemade crafts that rustic, southern feel.



And we labeled our dishes with a few spooky tags, like "Eye of Newt" and "Snake Venom."



But don't be scared dear friends! These tasty treats were made with love to make you smile.


We're so happy you could join us for our annual Halloween party...and now it's time to eat, drink, and be scary!

I saw the thumbnail in my blog and thought "Oh, what is hapeening in the Alley?" ahahahah
Fun, it seems. And a party to die for with such delicacies to enjoy. Just don't let those two witches greet the people on entrance - they couldn't desguise the sweet and full of fun expression ahahahah. What a treat!!!

Happy Halloween, Lovely Family!

Thank you so much Sheri for attending the ballet and leaving such a sweet note! In answer to your question, I inserted a wire into the cording for the tail to allow her to stand on her own.
Blessings,
Penny

Good morning Sheri! I am not sure you will get this message, but I want to thank you for your loyalty and goodness! Your comment on my new post just embraces me as I am working hard on my art while trying to squeeze in some writing, but these days, my writing is focused just on blogging. I started a course last night on how to start your MEMOIRS so I hope I can start living the life of a writer: TO WRITE!

Much love my dear, Anita
