M^..^M HAPPY HALLOWEEN ~^..^~

WHEN WITCHES GO RIDING AND BLACK CATS ARE SEEN, THE MOON LAUGHS AND WHISPERS, 'TIS NEAR HALLOWEEN…………… OH NO,ALMOST FORGOT TO MAKE A POST FOR THIS VERY SPECIAL NIGHT….TENDING TO THE TRICK OR TREATERS BUT ONLY 8 LITTLE TRICK OR TREATERS


~^..^~ HAPPY HALLOWEEN m^..^m
"Halloween Flight" by Annabellelee






These chairs ( bought at House of Lazarus ) are great for props and sometime in the near future I will refurbish them to their original .




Wolfs howling at the moon …I think M was thinking of her brother who is now working out west when she decided on making the wolfs ( he adores them) …nice work on this ….  m ^. M .^m

This is for you Ty m ^..^ m Happy Halloween


Tim Burton's  Skeleton? and Owl ….two of the pumpkins M made.












From inside our living-room window



And here Grace is kinda spooked by me when I was out in the garden by the window taking pics of the scream ghost












Like I said before I am a terrible photographer , I'm so bad that I make monsters appear…lol
Can you see the two pumpkin eyes, mouth and arm reaching for my witch's broom?







Bought these black candles at House and when I went to blow them out they would shut and light up again, not sure but I believe there are some trick candles like that around? Anyway, they really looked cool when I finally blew them out their smoke lingered in mid air and made the most beautiful delicate ribbon streams of soft grey;  I should have had the camera on hand but I had already put it away.



So early this morning I stepped out to buy some new craving knives for my daughter to cut out the designs she drew last night on four pumpkins I'd bought her. So glad she volunteered to do the pumpkins because I really wasn't much in the mood for designing them this year and besides, she did an awesome job! Anyway, while running the errand I stopped at our  Kemptville Tim Hortons and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a skeleton, a ballerina and a Hawaiian who served me my coffee but my mind was too busy thinking about visiting "House Of Lazarus", my favourite thrift shop in Mountain so I didn't stop to take their picture even though I had brought my camera along and I thought I would take their picture later on my way back home from House.

But by the time I arrived at House I realized for the second time that morning a golden opportunity had once again presented itself to me.
The gals at the House were all dressed up and already celebrating Halloween and since I am such a terrible photographer when I'm out in public, like it takes me forever to focus and click the shutter button, even when it's on auto so I had to ask Ashley to help out and take their pic, thanks Ashley : )



So here is some of the gang from my favourite Thrift Shop in Mountain…..






From back left ~ Clare the Medieval Barmaid, Pauline the Witch Doctor, Krystine the Witch ( purrfect witch's ensemble from head to toe and I adore her black velvet hooded Victorian cape which by the way she bought at House )
At front Pauline with the her cute devilish smile, and Pat  the scarecrow.
As you can see they are a Happy Group of Trick or Treaters only they somehow missed my house tonight…..only a dozen trick or treaters so far…wow not like before,
used run out of stuff by this time ; )




Thanks Krystine for the candy apples and treats.
p.s. If another one of those lovely Victorian capes comes in, hold onto it for me….please ; ) 
Luv to dress up as a witch one year since my son thinks I'm one already…..long story…read "about "
m ^..^m 




A VERY HAPPY GRAMA PAULINE ON HALLOWEEN WITH HER TWO GRANDCHILDREN JAXSON AND CHLOE



HAPPY HALLOWEEN GIRLS AND THANKS FOR THE PICS ASHLEY, MUCH APPRECIATED. M^..^M







Another couple of treasures I found at House….Jack and the two vintage chairs.













~^..^~ HAPPY HALLOWEEN M^..^M

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
