“Paper” Chains

Oh, my goodness do I ever have a new LOVE!! I mean, seriously–just look at these cute little crocheted “paper” chains!!

Yeah, it started out innocently enough. I found the pattern for these red, white and blue ones and tweaked it in a few crucial places–as is my style–and we ended up with these pretties.

Then, try as I may, I couldn’t stop. They just kept coming and coming and coming. These “summer” ones looked more like Easter sooo, I finished them and put them downstairs in the box with all the baskets.

Then the quest for the perfect real Summer colors began and ended here. What do you think? I lovvvvve them. They just scream beaches, hot sun and ripe peaches.

Now, you would likely think that I’d be done by now but noooOOOooo. Considering my yarn stash is about nine miles wide–I have SUCH plans…

starting right here.

Heh, heh, heh.

For many years, my Halloween decorations had their traditional places in my house–this one on the window sill and that one on the piano. You know how it works.  Then life changed and we moved a ton–4 times in as many years. If I could even find the decorations–they went wherever they would fit and sometimes that meant leaving them in the storage tubs altogether.

But this October, it was pretty dang fun to sort through Halloween tubs and decide what was mine and what would be better off living somewhere else.  One by one the decorations came out.  As I unwrapped them, each thing seemed to know right where it belonged. This one on the window sill and that one on the book shelf.

Almost like they were just waiting to finally get to this cute little house and help make it truly…

mine. 

Those Silly Spooks

Our sweet little Halloween party has evolved into an event of huge proportions. So much so that we have to meet at a place that is bigger than any of our houses are.  Pretty fun to see that all those little spooks from years ago, are just great big even crazier spooks nowadays–with a whole new generation of littles coming right along behind.

Ooooh, I love these people.

Avatar Aang~ All Grown Up

Positively the best costume ever. Yesiree, now that cute little Avatar Aang is grown up and only seen in flashbacks and visions in the new series Legend of Korra, it only seemed fitting that The Bald Guy should pay just a bit of tribute to one of our favorite guys.

ang

I mean, he has the bald head for it, and the beard…well, he’s been working on that for awhile now.

Aang

It turned out pretty darn perfect–if I do say so myself.  And perfect enough to win First Place in the costume contest at Ebay.

Yeah…that’s dang good.

Good match, wouldn’t you say?

After all, a guy’s gotta have the right “get up” if he’s gonna save the world.

Heh, heh, heh.
