Halloween Party, WELCOME! October 18, 2008

Today is the day thought up by the lovely and twisted mind over at A Fanciful Twist.  There are tons of folks playing along, check out her blog to see the complete list!

Welcome, creeeeeeking the door open . My butler will take your coat (and he might give it back to you at the end of your visit!)

Not surprisingly, my house is not yet ready for the party so this will be a partial open house.  A less than grand opening!  I have more silhouettes to cut, wallpaper to hang and we have wooden people to paint but I wanted to participate in the party so come on in, we’ve been waiting for you!

We have comfortable spots for lounging…  This guest has been with us a while!!!

There are plenty of chances to mingle:

Not much in the way of nibbles, although there are plenty of creatures who would love a nibble of YOU!

You’re welcome to hang out some more but I am going to bust open the lovely box of wine you brought, and what a LOVELY hostess gift it was, and rest for a spell !!!!!!!!!!

A here is a link to the BEFORE shots of the thrifted dollhouse (this is a joint project between myself and my 6 year old son).

    That’s a very ghoulish house – the six year old’s choice of colors? I love the name of your blog. I raised four boys and a girl and the boys were just as all over crafting and quilting and sewing and cooking and other “girl stuff” as the lone sister in the bunch. Of course I’m all about loving “boy stuff” too. Well rounded, that’s us.

    How much fun was this post! I think it was
    very funny and the ghouse was very ghastly,
    any ghosts living there? Have a ghappy Ghalloween!
