We hope everyone had a fun Halloween!
We sure did. Our annual party of four, but as I said before, we can be as silly as we want to be that way.


Mom (Twyla) was Little Red Riding Hood.



Jordan, my brother, was a troll.



Our friend Susan was a Geisha. She came in the door and said her name was Mai-Won Boob. (Many of you may remember her mastectomy.) She is a clever girl with a keen sense of humour.



Here she is doing her fan dance. Spencer was wanting to eat her fan.


We had more food than we could eat!


We have been in magazine heaven today! The premier issue of Where Women Create is wonderful. I wish you could have heard us in Border's. We were huddled together on a bench oohing and aahing over the luscious pictures. We tried to be quiet but one woman got up and moved to the end of the aisle.
I am feeling so inspired after reading the new Home Companion! The articles and colors fit my style so well!
Of course the Romantic Homes had beautiful pages and great ideas!



Meet Maureen. This was Mom's neat flea market find today! A Styrofoam head covered in vintage sheet music. She will be wonderful for displays.


A day of flea marketing just isn't complete without finding at least one new planter!

It's rare that we go to a flea market and don't find at least one vintage card to come home with! Here are the one's I found today.




These are my goodies from Hobby Lobby today. I hope to get some crafting with this cute paper done this week.




Deb of Garage Sale Gal tagged us. The rule is to take the 4th photo from the 4th file and share it.

This is a photo of a collage I made this Spring for Mom (Twyla). I was working on it to sell, but she fell in love with it while I was working on it and so I started adding colors and pieces that she would like and gave it to her.

Have a wonderful day! Lindsey and Twyla

Looks like fun. I'm thinking Barnes and Noble might be calling me pretty quickly. Hubby is out of town for the whole week!! Magazines are good medicine.
