The Wonders of Halloween!!

Happy Wednesday All!!!

If you ever read Rebecca Ramsey's blog, Wonders Never Cease, you know that everyday she has a new wonder of the world!!

Today is Wonders of the World Wednesday, hosted by Rebecca. http://rebeccasramsey.blogspot.com/ Please visit her blog, she is a fabulous writer!!

My wonder of the World today is Halloween. Surprised aren't you?

Since I have been making a lot of Halloween related art lately, I thought you might like to see what I have been doing the last couple of days. Decorating my house for the season. I have so many decorations, I start early, so that I may enjoy my decorations for awhile.

I have been collecting vintage Halloween decorations since the early 90's. An article in the Oct. 1992 issue of Country Living started it all.

I like to mix the old with the new. I tend to do that with all of my decorating. Vintage is a big influence in my artwork too!! My pieces tend to look very vintage.
I think it's a wonder that some of these old books, and decorations have survived over the years.

I hope you enjoy the Pre Halloween wonders!! These are a fraction of my decorations. I'm sure I will post more as the holiday gets closer.

Have a wonderful day, and visit Rebecca's blog!

Rosemary, I'm a big Halloween lover. It's such a great holiday, and your artwork captures the spirit of what I like best about it--the playful, eerie, spooky fun. I love the whole season--the chill in the air, the pumpkins and gourds, the apple cider. I can't wait for Fall!

Thanks for joining in the party! I always enjoy your blog!

Yea for your photos! You know I love your decorations Rosemary, and I can't wait to get my beautiful creations from you! My witches hat box is a black, sparkly beauty. I want to leave it out all year. Have a great day my dear, and keep up the Halloween photos, they are eye candy for me!

It's all wonderful, but the little witch bird riding on the broom in her hat just takes the cake! What a lovely haven you have made of your home.
