It has begun

The time for Halloween Decor is now official. I claim September 30th official OK to put up Halloween decor day, so pull out those Halloween boxes! I've been crafting out all kinds of neat new things this year, and I've already made use of the cheesecloth I scored last month at an estate sale. One of my favorite creations this year are these spooky floral arrangements. There are 2 of them, but this one is the second one I made is better :P (practice makes perfect?)
The vases used are from the spring collection at Michael's... weird, but awesome since they were a clearance item. I guess the trick is to buy non-halloween items to make things, it will be a lot cheaper. More posts to come.

I'd rather see a banana split?

Estate sales were pretty darn good this past weekend, besides the nasty humidity and rain.. yucks! Liz joined us again as we hit up 2 sales in Spring Valley.
The first one looked creepy from the outside, since the house was in an industrial area. I thought we had the wrong address- we were a lil
creeped out to go inside, but good thing we did! (junk city).
Keith scored a super pong tele-games system, which he then spent the rest of the weekend trying to get to work (we got it to work for like 1
minute, then it went dead). I got this super cool bowler-monkey picture- I'd like to think its an omen to how awesome I will be at bowling.
The second sale had all the cool vintage clothing. Liz got some cool sunglasses and this gold metallic jumpsuit, which fits her perfectly! I
got a turquoise rhinestone polyester dress, which I can't stop staring at, oh yeah and a beaded cardigan in perfect shape! I was a good Saturday!

we WILL get this to work!
