Come As I Wasn't Ready Party

EEK is right! The time came for the devilishly, delightful Debra's VIF (featuring fun tablescapes) and I didn't stand a ghost of a chance having anything ready to post! (Note to self: F stands for Friday...Friday, self...not Saturday!) What's a body to do one might ponder other than offer up my Halloween decor of dust and cobwebs...OR...go back into my vault of Ghost Stories of Halloween Past. Delving into my bag o'tricks...these are what I pulled out!

SQUIRREL ALERT!!!

It was fun going back and reading the comments. I had just started blogging when I did these posts and while I didn't get a lot of commenting, the ones who started with me...are still with me (for the most part)...bless their hearts!

I'm adding a link under each photo for those of you who are new friends hoo-hoo'd like to take a trip in the Way Back Machine to read my early installments. I hope they tickle your funny bones! Trash Day Spooktacular

I'm not lazy y'all...I'm just doing a lot of prep work for the November window and the upcoming Christmas Open House at W&T's....(plus, I may need a new witch-watch)! Stay tuned for more on that later!

Don't forget to go to the broom closet...pick out a ride...and fly off the handle to Debra's for more table top dancing...I mean 'scaping!

Clearing Out Cobwebs
There is no rest for the wicked on Halloween...and I am the wickedest witch of the west!

A toast to Debra..."Bone Appetit"...and I'm off on my Hoover to Mindy's Open House!

Conjure me this...

Why do absent minded witches love Blogger?

SPELLCHECK!!!

BOOtiful photos! I enjoyed that meandering down spooky memory lane. I got spooked!

Please party for me at Mindy's! Get loud and rowdy and play like I'm there...ok? Wish it wasn't such a far drive or I would come. But, alas, fair witch, I am stuck down here in swamp land! Have a great day at Mindy's!

I'm always too late to the party. Its rare for me to get into a link party in time... A remix is a good idea, its nice to see pics from the past.

These are great. I did masks on some of my paintings, but I do love that harlequin on yours better!
