~Six Nights till Halloween~and Goodies from Priscila~




Happy SaturdaybeforeHallowe'en!


Have you bought your candy?
Or
do you wait till the last day?

Do you buy chocolate?
or
do you buy candy that won't tempt you?

What about the children's costumes?
Did you purchase them last month?
or
will you throw caution to the wind and put something together the Night-of?


Here's what's up at the Shabby Ranchette,
We put the lights up and decor out midmonth.

The Hallowe'en candy was out at Walgreens early this October,
so I grabbed a ginormous bag of DumDums.
I do that otherwise I'll be stuck with:
"Don't forget to buy the Hallowe'en candy" playing over and over in my head,for the remainder of the month.
At home,the candy goes way up on the very top of the pantry.
It has to be hidden from the Sugar Monsters that live here.


Here's one of them.




Granted, it's me the other beasties around here that are more troublesome.
Especially concerning chocolate.

As for D-man's costume. He isn't trick or treating again this year,he's going to sit outside and hand out the candy with me again.He says that the neighbors set up their haunted graveyard again this year he can see all his friends that way.
Maybe when he see's everyone,he'll change his mind...

I will let you know afterwards!



Now I must show you the goodies that my sweet friend,
Priscila sent me this week!
This was a delightful Random Act of Kindness! A "just because" treat!
This young lady is a wife,mother and artist and lovely friend~and she has a sweet,fun and informative blog called
Casa Bella Chic.
I was thrilled when I opened the package and saw:
Cotton Candy!



Actually, it's the sofest pink woolly yarn made into a fun fair treat!
It sure does look good enough to eat!

Then~an adorably sweet, handmade and sewn, gift tag!




It's going on my Inspiration Board!
I love vintage children's greeting card images.
There's nothing cuter!

I was also given the Springy-est floral vintage gift wrap and aqua lace trim.
They're so pretty and I can't wait to use them in my creations!
You are so thoughtful,Priscila!



Also included were these original pages from children's books that were popular when I was a little girl~including The Ginger Bread Boy!
I'm in a Gingerbread Challenge right now!!!
How fun is that!!!







Heeheehee~adorable!

Hi, Tina!

I've had fun cruising your blog today. If you hadn't done any art since High school then I feel there's hope for me, too! I left you some comments on your flickr.
