I'm back with a little pumpkin love

I'm back. I can't seem to make myself do the housewifey things I'm supposed to be doing today, I just want to play and think about all things Halloweenie.

We pulled out more stuff from our holiday storage last night ... things are getting a wee bit spookier over here. I'm not very happy with it all so far, it needs a lot of tweaking - it looks like the storage boxes erupted and spewed their contents all over our living room right now. WAH!

It makes me all smiley as I write this though, to see my things from Pam, Lori and Stephanie! You guys have added so much to my life and my decor teehee. Thank you for your friendship!

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this - a blogger posted this darling black cat printable (I made a garland for my door with it), about three years ago (maybe more) and I can't find where I got it from and I can't find where I downloaded it on my computer. I wanted to make some ornaments for my Halloweenie tree with it. WAH! Do you know what blogger posted it by chance???

Do you know who my mommy is? Thanks for your help!

Since I'm already avoiding my housework hahahha, I thought I'd leave a few links for some darling pumpkin crafts.

Isn't this the cutest pincushion from The Long Thread, at Whip Up?!

  1. Aw, look at how cute those little guys look together. I am so happy to be a part of your celebrations there! :) That piece of pumpkin pie is too cute!! And I don't know who the cat blogger is, but maybe someone will turn up who knows. I hope I can get a couple of minutes to make ornies today. My tree looks a little bare, which is funny when you think about it! lol! Have a great day - xox!!

  2. I love the pumpkin pie. How cute is that! I am going for the tutorial. Thanks.

  3. Hi Sally, I thought of my Day of the Dead story when I admired your log cabin quilt. I love it! Yes, please feel free to use any of my photos any time you like. Thanks for sharing your border story. I can't imagine the fear of being a green card holder and hoping you will be allowed in one way or the other. Love all your pumpkins today! E

  4. Hi Sally, great links! So many cute ideas, so little time, tfs, Nan

  5. You just about blow me away on each of your post. I wish I could come up with goodies like you. I well remember Jack Benny and his shows.

  6. Ooooh I want a tree like that too! You are so festive for halloween, have have some pumpkin lights and THATS IT! I am inferior! :)

    I re-read Jonathon Kozol's books recently and remembered why I love him- he was a staple in college! Right now I'm reading The Lost City Of Z, the true story about the explorer Percy Faucett's adventure into the amazon searching for the fabled city of "Z". It has a slow start but I like non-fiction that reads like The devil In white City, did you ever read that?

  7. Love everything! And your skelly yoborobo painting is awesome! I am lucky to have one of her skellys too!
