Halloween Party ♥ 2012

Photobucket
~
Spooky Greetings, my friends!

(I just edited my post title so it would be easier to search for in the future.)

I finally finished the watercolor/Prismacolor painting

of my three kitties, Tallulah, Cyrus, and Leo, in their costumes (above)...

As much as I want to dress them up in actual costumes (yes, I really do),

I just don't think they would appreciate it...;^)
 
I'm so glad you dropped by to celebrate with us...Leo and I have been patiently waiting!
 
The other kitties decided to watch from the couch...
 
They'll come over to investigate after all the excitement is over, I'm sure... (Party Poopers!)
 
First, we want to thank Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for hosting this Halloween-y blog party ~ :^)
 
Step into our parlor if you please, and we'll have goodies...
 
A feast for the tummy and the eyes, we hope!

Miss Griselda is holding court at the treat table...
She can barely see the guests over her armload of marigolds, though!
~
Photobucket
~
Here she is a little closer, in all her ruffled finery!
~
Photobucket
~
How about beginning with a mug of hot cocoa with whipped cream and just a sprinkle of cinnamon?
 
And maybe just a couple of Jack O' Lantern sugar cookies? They are calorie-free, honest!
 
Just the thing for our just-turned-chilly day!
 
You can see that Mr. Frog is wondering if that's true about the calorie-free cookies...
 
He's looking at them with some concern...
 
(and longing, I think...)
~
Photobucket
~
Oh, buttercream!
Need I say more?
~
Photobucket
~
This cool brass spider (guarding some yummy pumpkin-spice almonds)
 
is from artist Dave Dardis of Makanda, Illinois...
 
a souvenir from Vulture Fest last weekend...
~
Photobucket
~
A couple of cute little ghosts that have been with me for years are guarding the cupcakes...:^)
~
Photobucket
~
Getting top billing here is my sweet little pumpkin that my Grandma Collier gave me
 
 on my second Halloween, in 1959...(I was born two minutes before Midnight, October 30th...

not quite Halloween, but still in the "Witching Hour"!)
 
 I thought that after 53 years, he deserved a place of honor under a pretty bell jar!
 
I'm thrilled I still have him ~ ♥

The lovely platter in the background is by Carolee Clark of King of Mice Studios .
~
Photobucket
~
There I am, and there he is, in the little photo...
~
Photobucket
~
Caramel apple, anyone?
~
Photobucket
~
Here is another sweet thing that I feel so fortunate to still have;
 
my little October Angel...
 
Grandma Collier got her for me, too.
~
Photobucket
~
Even the little silver creamer holding some marigolds has a spidery surprise!
~
Photobucket
~
An Etude music magazine from October 1944 is framed and sits amid pumpkins
 
on my hall table...
~
Photobucket
~
More marigolds and a sweet vintage Halloween greeting...
~
Photobucket
~
If we eat a healthy snack like this crisp Gala apple, it will counteract anything
 
sugary that we have consumed, isn't that correct?
 
Even with the caramel sauce for dipping?
~
Photobucket
~
Uh, oh....Leo finds it necessary to check out these strange new items...
~
Photobucket
~
"Mom, why are there marigolds in the chandelier?"
~
Photobucket
~
"These fellows have wide open mouths, but I don't hear 'em saying anything...
how curious!"
~
Photobucket
~
"All this stuff is just so intriguing...
 
Cyrus and Tallulah don't know what amazing new smells they're missing! "
~
Photobucket
~
I have been blessed with armloads of marigolds this year!
 
Leo tells me they aren't one of his favorite new fragrances...
~
Photobucket
~
Still fascinated with my "overhead" decor!
~
Photobucket
~
These sweeties were in a birthday~box of goodies I just received from my dear friend Elaine!

I love them!
~
Photobucket
~
Before you go, a nice cup of orange-spice tea would be just the thing...
~
Photobucket
~
I almost forgot!

I sold out of my little okra-pod Vultures last weekend, but when my daughter

Mandy told me she wished she'd asked me to save one for her, I made three more ~

one for Mandy, one for daughter Katie, and one to give away here...

A thank you for stopping by my little Halloween "Party in Pictures"...

Just leave me a comment and I will draw a name!

~
Photobucket

~
Don't forget to hop on by the other parties!

(You can get the whole list at A Fanciful Twist...(oooh, that rhymes!) ~ ;^)

Have a wonderful weekend!... Leo, Cyrus, Tallulah and I wish you

a purrrfectly spooktacular Halloween!!

P.S....Because I know it takes some time to visit all the parties (at least I know it will take a while for me) I will wait until Tuesday evening to draw a name for the Vulture...:^)

  23. Oh wow! I am in LOOOOOOOOOVE with your Halloween dining table decor...the beautiful lights hanging on the chandelier and their magical glow on the pumpkins...but what's even funnier is your cat, Leo - checking things out. I used to shelter/home seven cats and they are such beautiful creatures.

  31. What a festive occasion! Of course it is all intriguing to those precious felines!:)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I had to show Samson, who remarked that Leo is furrier than he. I told him he's much bigger, so in the end he's got the most fur. Anyway, we both enjoyed the party very much. The decorations are amazing, we loved every photo and that tea! Thanks for having us. Happy Halloween, from Samson and his mommy.

  33. I just love all your vintage goodness. Well...those cats are pretty fabulous too.

  37. Why have I not heard of this Vulture fest? I am fascinated by festivals of all sorts. And if you sold out of your creations it sounds like an intelligent and fun crowd!

    I am also intrigued by just the glimpse I saw of a hand with astrological symbols.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooh what a wonderful magical halloween party! I love the phrase "Ghouls just want to have fun", made me giggle! Grat cupcakes too. Thanks for having me:)

  39. Wowie Wow--so many things to comment on I don't even know where to begin. Seriously, from the background of your blogsite to the MOST GORGEOUS Halloween shot ever of Leo, facing away from us, under the sparkling chandelier, gazing at the pumpkins...that's just AWESOME. And then you start in about Vintage goodies--that pic of you with your prized pumpkin is soooo sweet, and looks so precious under glass with the ACTUAL pumpkin. Bravo! And that angel...sweet.
    Don't even get me started on spiced pumpkin seeds and cupcakes with those little pumpkin candies on top. I hope Leo likes company...
    WELL DONE!!

    Happy Halloween to you!

    What a wonderful party! Thank you for having me over. I loved the apples in the carmel and the tea was delicious!

  50. Dearest Anne,
    How enchanted. All the goodies were delightful, and I absolutely adore the little pumpkin treat your grandma gifted you. Oh, I almost forgot...Happy Birthday. May all your wishes come true. It was wonderful meeting your furry little companion. The painting of the three is so adorable. Have a wonderful Halloween!

    Thank you for the Wonderful party. I had a spooktacular good time. I would love for you to drop in to Wonderland for a Ghostly tale and a few Halloween treats. See ya there

  51. Hello Anne!
    What a fun and spooky party you have had here! I LOVE your little pumpkin from your childhood!!! I still have my Teddy, that my mother got for me before I was born, so sometime in 1961! The faces of so many things in the late 50's and early 60's were SO CUTE! And thank you for the orange-spice tea! It is one of my favorites! Have you ever warmed orange juice and added it? Add a bit of honey or agave and it's perfect!

    I hope you will have a chance to visit me at The Tearoom and see what is happening at The Dollhouse for Halloween!

  71. Anne, thank you so much for your replies- and yes of course, please use the Lorena music, it's from youtube so you can grab the code etc. And I totally understand about the fire....I used to think I was in the minority when in 2005 I lost everything in Hurricane Katrina, but the more time goes by, the more I see that almost everyone has suffered some great loss in some way similar...rebuilding has been difficult and I know how it feels to think on treasured things you once had but have no more. It happens everyday even though its been 8 years now. And now, as Sandy comes aground, I'm afraid there will be more stories to tell before it's all over. We're preparing here too. I'm beginning to thing I'm the hurricane queen! So, blessings to you for the trauma of the fire, which is of course, purification! I often remind myself how my losses were actually catalysts for change that long needed to happen. All things happen for the good, and I do believe that. hugs!

  82. How fun! You know how to dress the joint up! Everything is so beautiful. I'd love to be your neighbor with all those delish looking goodies! hahha... Too bad I missed the giveaway, I've got a thing for vultures. I have an old stuffed (like a toy, not the real thing) vulture I call my Studio Mascot in my art studio. I've had many people try to talk me out of it, but no way!

    Happy Belated Birthday Anne!

  83. WOW! What delightful eye candy! Your art work is beautiful. How funny--I also have a Miss Griselda and Mr. Frog--maybe you recognized them at my party. I LOVE your vultures. I'm sad I missed the give-away.

    I know I am rather late--I had company all last week.
    Thank you so much for visiting me and becoming a follower. I am also now following, and yes, I would love to be on your sidebar!

  85. I saw some of your vintage St. Patty's Postcards on Pinterest, so I came to check out this blog. I have been reading with fervent interest for about an hour, when I came to this spot. The things you make are so beautiful and creative, your writing is so engrossing, the pictures are beautiful, and the cats are gorgeous. Then, when I saw you have the same birthday as me, I just had to comment. I am totally going to follow your blog now. Thanks for the fun.
