Thank You, Kind Blogger!

I recently came across this adorable idea from 'Stuff By Ash'. Thanks so much, "Ash"!




FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
"Ash" even went to the trouble of making this great "materials needed" chart!
HALLOWEEN, 2010:
Newest "member of the Gang". I couldn't resist this little guy after seeing yours last year, Joyce.





These cute little candy corns are actually gummi-candies from our local Hallmark store...and recently reduced to $2.97 a bag. : )
Still waiting on all the wedding photos. Can hardly wait!

Hi Mary Lou,
What a fabulous skelaton project for the little ones. I think I could manage that one with my kiddos! Not too much work to be done, especially with all the details spelt out so nicely! Love all your whimsical Halloween decorations. Wish I could ring your bell at trick or treating time. ;)

Oh those skeletons are so clever...the kiddos did a great job with their projects! Lori Mitchell...if I could, I'd have them all. I'm most attracted to the silliest ones...the wild hair ones. I will choose one for Christmas this year-last year I got Mrs. Claus and now I like some of the angels. Still hoping to find a Santos at a good price. Love your displays!

What a cute a clever project! Makes me wish I had little ones around to do it with. Don't think my big boys would be into it :o(

Love your spooky vignettes! You have the best collections, and quite a talent at displaying them.

Dear darling and cute Halloween friend! Those little skeltons and the medical part of it is awesome. A great learning tool all in the name of Halloween!

I'm waiting along with you for those wedding pictures. I know they take awhile. I went through this last eyar with my son but they are such a treasure to see.

Busy week up in my Fairyland world.
Boo to boo-tiful YOU!

This is "Ash", I have been getting a ton of hits from your site and hopped over to see why, I was pleasantly surprised. Your skeletons turned out so cute! Glad you enjoyed it so much!

Deb said...

Your decorations look like they're straight out of a Tim Burton movie...I love 'em!! Happy Halloween!

Mimi Sue said...

So adorable! The kids and the skeletons! Your house too. Do you have an empty nest? If so are you doing OK? Kind of a big change and maybe not all good. Thinking of you. Mimi

marie said...

What a funidea ~ and one that I'll definitely be saving to use with my grandbabies in a few years. The "materials chart" is a bit of art all by itself!
