Halloween Open House Saturday and the Weird & Wonderful & Somewhere Inbetween!

Hello ,I joined in the Halloween Party that will be on Saturday to get myself going on my Halloween decorating, so come back then! Go to http://www.afancifultwist.typepad.com/for details and some awesome pictures to inspire!

A favorite Halloween postcard...


Here are a some 'Wonderful ETSY Stores' http://www.etsy.com for 'digital downloads' for your creative projects..


Aren't those cupcakes delightful?! and the picks are cute too! ha!



Time to get your Halloween groove on the days are flying by!


This postcard is definitely..'weird'..

This postcard is for Robert and his pug!

Wonderful china dolls... do you like blonds or brunettes?



This French beauty is to die for.. so precious...



And now.. the 'Weird and Creepy'.. a wax doll that will give you the he-be-jee-bees!


This poor lass should keep that veil on at all times! Well ,maybe off for Halloween..pretty dress and in Halloween colors too.

Yikes!! {you are welcome to use any of these pictures for your projects..}

Found this unusual orange Halloween cat on ebay.. Wonderful, huh?!

Anthropologie sweaters are the most interesting designs but the price tags will make you jump! Found this one on ebay and hope I will win..

While on ebay looking for old dolls I come across a few weird ones and here is one..eek!


This wonderful one I bid on but lost out ...the second photo of her is interesting in a 'weird way' the light is to show she has no hairline cracks in her porcelain....




A good old photo for a friendly witch...

Fall is my favorite time to bake and this ad from a old magazine says it all..
Another wonderful Anthropolgie Sweater..yes ,bidding on ebay again.. I have bought alot of clothes on ebay besides stuff I collect...



A cat cutout I'm bidding on kinda 'weird'..


A colorful weird Halloween crown.
A digital collage I made with 3 photos.

A wonderful magazine cover..
A colorful moon cutout...and this shawl/scarf is sooo wonderful...

Oohh Debra you definitely are the queen of gathering postcards and all kind of beautiful little weird stuff ( I mean the positive way). I'm looking forward to your post on saturday, but I won't be there then. I' m making a little trip with my cousin, starting tomorrow coming back Sunday night. I have my contribution already posted. When you don't know anything to do anymore just pop by! Have a great weekend and much fun at the Halloween party!
