Come with me and Sara to the "BOO"-tique : )

Sara and I both needed some "down time" this afternoon, so we took off for one of our "happy places". We weren't disappointed!!
I absolutely LOVE it when you girls take lots of pics when visiting a favorite store or craft fair and such, so I thought I would return the favor. The store clerks were so gracious about us taking pictures, which I really appreciated. So enjoy!!!







SILLY SARA!
These glasses were hilarious!
Sara stole my camera from me for a few minutes to take all these Disney pictures.
So Fun!!!

And if you've seen Sara's room, you know she's crazy about Damask. : )
Next stop, a Scrapbook store that had this pumpkin on the counter. All I can say is WOW!!

Okay, onto the pendant/necklaces. These were SO FUN to make.



This one below cracks me up. I told Sara that I was going to put "Halloween costume" on the back and she suggested I make it "This is my Halloween costume". Smart girl. : )






These are sitting over in my Shop for $10.00 each if you would like one. Thanks for coming by today.

Hi ML,
How much fun these photos were to look at!!! I can never get over how BIG the Halloween business has become during our lifetime! The possibilities are endless!

I love your Halloween necklaces and I think they look darling hanging on your tree! If I were as talented as you are, I'd have a dozen hanging on the tree along with your other Halloween pretties.

Thank you for the email explaining LDS to me. I had held some not so uncommon misconceptions and I always, always, always want to learn more about other religions, cultures, etc because it's so very interesting to me! You're a peach to have taken the time!

Happy Weekend!!

That was the perfect shopping trip for me, I was in my pajamas and I didn't spend any money! Haha. :)

How come I can't find a halloween section of any store that doesn't have gross or scary things? Hmm.

Oh you have lots more pendants! I visited your shop last night and hearted one of them.

This shop looks like so much fun. I was especially drawn to the googley eye balls under the Trick or Treat in the first photo. I don't know why, but they just seemed so funny to me. The pendants are beautiful. I'm going to go take a look now. Loved your post!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Sounds and looks like you had a fun day. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Mary Lou,

My mom and I just did the same thing your daughter and you did!
We really enjoy shopping in creative stores together. She's my favorite shopping buddy.

I loved all the photos you took and your necklaces are adorable!
Hey, I wanted you to know that even though I don't comment all the time, I am still praying for your mom and your family!
Take Care Sweetie,
Robin~♥

That white pumpkin is gorgeous. I'd love to try to make one. Were those pins? or were they glued on? Love your little necklaces. Mimi

Love all the eye candy. I have some eye candy too straight from the backwoods of Montana. You have not lived, until you go to a live auction with a bunch of Montana cowboys. Happy Sunday to you, onward we blog!
