this witch's brew



Is this torture for a five-year-old boy? Why yes is it, but if ever there was an appropriate time for torture it would definitely be Halloween. And Halloween is in full swing at our abode. I spookified the house last Thursday. (Yes, that is a finger you see amongst the M&M's.) Here's a look.

Ye Ol' Mantle

My work station, or laboratory, if you will.

Our "Rare Halloween Pixie" which we keep on our kitchen table for observation.

I saw this idea on another blog, but I can't remember the address. She used an apothecary jar which looks really great too. Our "fairy" is really Thom at age two.

Thom was a little worried that I had made him look like a girl, no thanks to his father, but in the end he liked being a pixie.

Now go. Go and spread some ghoulish goodness throughout your house. Stuff like this is the spice of life. And if you haven't already, scroll on down and check out yesterday's give away. There are three monsters up for grabs and you have until Monday morning to enter.

Pam!? Is that you?

april said...

Okay Okay. That last comment. That was from my little brother. Pam is my mother. And yes, she is a major decorator for holidays and yes, I swore I'd never be the same. But as we all know, as you get older your parents habits have a way of sneaking into the way you do things. It's inevitable. Like the way my dad likes to say little sarcastic remarks. Similar to the one in the previous comment.

Wow - your blog is just beautiful!! I need to bookmark and return in the morning, it's well past midnight here in Sweden and I'm super tired. Glad I found you on Etsy! (I'm Irregulardesigns)

cute! And we are totally on the same wavelength. I JUST went today to buy some of those clear glass containers and have found some spooky yet yummy things to put inside. And did I tell you about the banner I made? I am turning into a regular crafting fiend. Would that it could look as cute as yours. Maybe someday!

Jennifer said...

So spookified! I love Tiny Tom! Also love your orange and black candles-source? Must have! I'm a Halloween junkie myself but you have outdone yourself.

Your lovely decorations have almost nudged me into unboxing our own Halloween goodies. But my youngest has informed me that he is now too old for trick-or-treating, and nobody wants to have a party :(

Maybe I'll dust off the ole punkinheads anyway. Maybe I can find a couple of little kids to borrow :)

I'm glad you found my blog so I could find yours.
