Sneak Peek at Halloween


Just thought you might like a little sneak peek at my Halloween extravaganza. I have been working for a couple of days now in order to get all of my indoor decorations set up. It was a bit overwhelming. I didn't realize how much I actually have.
Once I took everything out, I had to figure out the vignettes that I wanted to make. These are just a tiny peak. Hope you like it so far.






I was recently tagged by two bloggers, for the middle name game. I was tagged by Allison and Genevieve. I don't have a middle name, and I tried to come up with one that I would have wanted, but nothing sounded too great with Rosemary. I decided to use Mary, because it comes after Rose. It's sort of like a middle name. I guess you have to come up with something for each letter. M- Mother comes to mind. I love being a mother to my daughter Amanda. She has always been fun right from the start. She is smart, sweet and intelligent. She is fun to be around and has a great sense of humor. We are very much the same. We sometimes say the same things, at the exact same time.
A- I love art. I took many art classes when I was in school. I love to paint, draw,
decorate, craft etc.
R- Roses are my favorite flower. I love all varieties.
Y- Yellow is one of my favorite colors. You will see it incorporated in many rooms in my
home. I have always liked this color. My first new car was in 1978, it was a yellow
Toyota Celica.
Now I am suppose to tag as many people as letters in my faux middle name.
If you have already been tagged, I apologize. I am tagging Michelle Faerie Dust Dreams,
Jill Bailiwick Designs, Dolly From My Cherry Heart, and Robyn Happy House of Haas.
If you want to play, use your middle name to tell us about yourself using each letter, then tag as many people as letters in your middle name. If you do not have a middle name, choose one you would have wanted to have.
If you have not visited any of these bloggers, check them out. They are all on the left side of my blog, titled Great blogs to visit.
Have a great day!

Like it? Love it so far! Can't wait to see more. The name game is fun. We both like yellow. I saw an inerview recently with Nelly Furtado where she said "I like yellow and I'm loud" LOL! Do the two go together?!

Love your Halloween decor! That "witch is in" pumpkin is a hoot!

Saw an article in last month's Country Living about the Alameda flea market in California. I thought about you. I have no idea if it's anywhere near you, but I wondered if you've been.

Tick tock, tick tock, that wedding is gonna be here before you know it!

Well done on the name game, you were rather more challenged with the lack of a middle name but still did it.
