The party is a mere handful of days away, or less, oh my!! Are your striped stockings in order? Broom in check? We have places to go, apples to bob for, magic to make!! But first, we prepare...
I am preparing my frock, sparkling up my bugs, blackening my flowers! I am polishing my boots, readying my spells, fluffing my cobwebs!
And most importantly, preparing this year's babies for their first fête...
I am collecting the punkins that are ready to go on with the next step in their lives, you know...
Pies, cakes, Jack-o-lanterns, and more!
I am whipping around my garden on my vintage Schwinn 3 wheel bike (which needs a trip to the bike doctor), collecting all the babes I grew, and watching others who are still growing. The harvest was mostly complete in July, I thought. But then, a whole new wave.
We have eaten and gifted many, but still, there are those that felt that they HAD to be at the party...
And so, I collect...
Calling all pumpkin head partiers!!! ;)
Ooo, babies still sleeping and growing...
Oh, I love you wee punkin' babe!! He loves you too ;)
Collect collect, vite vite, no time to waste. We have a party to whip up, pronto, on the double!
Oh, pumpkin holiday, here we come!
How did pumpkin time get here so soon? It is all a blur I tell you, a pure blur!
Now, let's go, we must get to the party area quick. Leaving the back garden, driving by the cottage, vroooom!
Waving at the baby twins!
Oops, lost one! Toss him back in carefully ;)
Dahlias smile, sunlight twinkles...
Shrubs of crimson marigolds, edged in mandarin orange, adorn the path...
Through the front garden...
And to the party site we go.
No time to waste, oh no! The party planner, that's me, is delayed. She has no plans, no way Jose. Fly off the seat of her broomstick, that is her motto!
But the pumpkin grower delivery girl is here with her goods (that's me too, phewey)!
And that is an important step indeed!
Next step, make pretty wearables!
Spray painting faux sunflowers and plastic insects, with a little flat black paint, is most crucial to our ensemble!
I spary paint my bugs and flowers, and sprinkle glitter on them while the paint is still wet. Glued and painted, all in one!
Yummms wickedness attire!
I choose the bracelet method...
I hot glued a sparkly insect to my flower, then hot glued that, to the center of my bracelet. Oh and, I tucked in some super orange leaves as well...
I like it, what do you think?
Not half bad for things I had in my house, no? Plastic bugs, fake flowers, cardboard, ribbon, glitter, spray paint and hot glue?
If you don't have proper witchy jewels, you best make one of these. It suits your darker side perfectly, I just know it ;)
It is madness around here I tell you! Must get back out and work on my party. I am such a last minute gal. I mean, witch.
(Thank goodness for my helpful Warlock, he brought lots of party treats)
SO much to do, I need a spell like, yesterday!
How are you doing? Getting ready to party?
Polish your eyeballs if you are a guest, and polish your crystal ball if your are a participant, we have some serious Halloween magic to conjure!!
Okay, I have to get to work, wish me luck!!
(Not to be confused with Brunhilda. And your name? Do share, please!)
