These cooler temps sure get us ready to putz around our house and get things in order for fall - the best time of the year! Thursday night I started getting some things out for fall and will share pictures in a few days. But then I went to the shop on Friday...
and did we have fun! Had to get things in order for Witch's Nite Out (Oct. 1 from 5-9)! My friend and customer Fay came down to help and we worked all day. We put on the Halloween music (great cd by Manheim Steamroller) and went at it. My old houses on the side of the shop needed something a little spooky, so we put up black webbing, cheesecloth curtains, purple lights and more. Don't you love the old witch in the door?!
Thanks Fay - I couldn't have done it all without you!
The old witch scarecrow looks great with the cornstalks.
I love all the lights (especially when the overheads are turned off!)
"Someone" left this old suitcase in one of the "houses" and the crows and spiders have had a field day!
This ghost is watching me behind my desk!
See the old suitcase??
This is a view of the shop in the daylight...
...and here it is at night.
The old witch is waiting for you to come in and join us.
She has prepared her own witch's brew and has the table all set.
Her pet owl is standing guard.
And the crows have all gathered too.
Zanie Janie and I also did her windows to continue to "spirit" down the street. Our little corner looks so awesome after dark!
And then you walk around the corner and see her other window.
What a great day!
Mark your calendars for October 1st and come in to have some eerie fun, food, music and prizes. Don't forget to wear your best witch finery to get in on the specials. Then you can hop on your broom and fly over to Wren In The Willow for lots more fun. Information on our event will follow shortly.
Have a great weekend and hope you all are putzing with your own house!
Until next time...
