Skeleton Infusion

the bewitching hour is drawing near

did you find your way here okay? ......  was it easy to park your broom or 

if you are the modern sort.....your vacuum?

Well good!  .... just come on in my sweet and join the party.....sit a "spell" in the kitchen with me.......as I prepare something delicious for you......freshly sliced tart crisp apples with a dipping sauce of spider spit perhaps......    hee hee hee!

 I hope you didn't have to step over my neighbor as you came in......he's always just lying around somewhere.....

Just put your hat any ol' place......it's very pretty.....did you make it yourself?  Us bloggers love to fluff and make things ever so pretty!

Let me introduce you to some of our other guest.  Meet my old boss....She ever so kindly agreed to make the invitations for this soiree :)

Would you care for some libations?  I know you must be very thirsty traveling from so afar!  Some "Black Widow Wine" perhaps??? Hmmmm?

 Now please feel free to mingle and wander around this old house.  I hope you enjoy it, as I decorated with my guest in mind.  There's dancing on the porch...... the Monster Mash  ....I was working in the lab late one night when I came up with that song   :)

 Slime on a Slab,  Deadman's Dip,  Evil Ooze,  Moldy Carmelized Pear Torte,  Edible Eyeballs...............ahhhhh.....just some of our tempting tasties on the menu tonite 

 Sweet little Boo pumpkins everywhere

 I am so thrilled you ventured into to our frightful poor lost souls fest. For your long journey home, may I tempt you with a little treat favor?  Nothing too heavy.....just a little chocolate.....we all lovvvvvve chocolate, don't we????  Hee hee hee..     :)


I am thrilled to be hosting a ghostly gathering this weekend. I wish you all could come.  I have always wanted to have a Halloween party complete with a hayride.  This year it is finally happening.  And I want to thank Vanessa  of a Fanciful Twist for hosting her fabulous virtual Halloween party on Saturday and allowing me to be a part of it.  I hope you can click over and visit.  I know it's going to be amazing. 

 Particulars:  All the spooktacular items at my party are Dollar Store buys or yard sale finds, with the exception of the dapper skeleton in the dining room.  He was a splurge from Spirit Halloween.  Other decor was made by me, or found in my cupboards, such as the vintage silver pieces.   BEWARE mirror sign created with lipstick.  :)  Ruffled tablecloth was a shower curtain dyed with walnuts. Martha Stewart black spiders and other scary stuff. Black and orange chocolates from For The Love of Chocolate Store, Carytown, Richmond, Va.  Food, not shown yet, because .....well....because it's not made yet.  :)  by me and my sweet neighbor, Cindy. 

 And it's always a treat to hook up with these fun parties every week.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors, decorations and textures that you chose are so beautiful.

Perfectly Haunting and Very Scary! The skeletons and bones are just perfect with all the Beware signs. I love your creative and terrific Halloween decorations. I'm sure it is scary on Halloween night and kids and adults will love it. Do you play scary music and the Monster Mash outdoors for the Trick or Treaters?

Thanks, Pam
