'Ween Stitching and Bathroom!

As a few people have noted, yes, my favorite holiday ever is Halloween. It always has been, ever since I was a child. I have the most awesome little Halloween scrapbook album for my son. It's just 6x6, but each year is a picture of him in his costume and a little blurb of memories about the holiday. I am doing one for my sister's two boys as well. I'd give anything to have a pic of me in a Halloween costume, but I guess we just didn't take too many pictures during Halloween when I was a little girl.

Here are a couple older designs I have done. Man, I love my Halloween stitching. I really need to do a few more of the newer designs (don't remind me about my Halloween Fairy!) before next year. I so love seeing what everyone is stitching.


Hmmm, looks like I have yet another recently purchased Halloween design or two! I scored When Witches Go Riding, and a little tiny Trail Creek Farm Design. I picked up a LHN that was in the clearance bin. The floss is the red that is used in the Witches design.


Here's a couple more of my Meadowbrooke Gourds.


Here's my new bathroom. Before, it was all pink and floral and "cottage-y". I loved it, but it was hart to accessorize and frankly, these new colors go great with the rest of my house and I can easily change the theme with towels and art, etc. I just printed some stuff off the internet onto photo paper and framed it, lol. My husband painted, put a new floor down and freshened everything up. Ignore the deodorant, OK?





So that's it for now. Don't be surprised if I post LOTS more Halloween pics. We're having a get together tomorrow. It's supposed to rain and I'm really upset about that! I have a wonderful back deck and yard and that's where we usually congregate and have fun. The house is little and no room! ARGH! Wish me luck! Happy stitching!

I sure do love, love, love your bathroom! Love the decorating, love the color's. You did GOOD! And, I loved your idea of printing out the pictures and framing them...I've done that too, only with Americana type of scenes though.

I also happened to fall in love with your halloween stitches, the first one is one I've never seen before. Good job again to you, on the stashy finds at great prices. Wooo-hooo Gotta love that PS stuff.

Here's to hoping your get together was a fun, fun time! Can't wait to hear about it...can't wait to see even more of your Halloween pictures too.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Fun finishes, I just love the Fright Night one. Your bathroom looks great too. Have fun at the get together. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the weather cooperates so people can spend some of the time outside.

I gotta tell you - ALL I could look at was that DEODORANT!!! REALLY!! Now apart from THAT the bathroom is great. I love the magazine rack and I absolutely love the idea of decorating around the Halloween colors/theme and in such a tasteful way. It looks fabulous. I have a witch collection so I join you in this love of Halloween. You did a lovely job.
