We were prepared for a quiet evening ... even though we lit our doorstep with a carved pumpkin and tea lights in jam jars but I am glad to report that the early evening, between 5.30 and 7.30, was punctuated by the door bell ... 18 little folk called in total .... all dressed up as witches, zombies and skeletons. Some only ventured up to the door, while holding their mums hand tightly but all were polite and thanked us for the sweetie pokes we had prepared. The cutest two little witches sang us a special Halloween Song which tugged at the heart ....how I wish I had taken photos ...but I thought it might have upset parents.
I cant remember when I last carved a pumpkin ...it was such fun but Vicki did most of it ....I supervised lol. We didn't waste the pumpkin flesh that was scooped out either ...Pumpkin and Choc chip muffins are yummy.
I finally blogged my LO's on my FH blog with a little background but I thought I would pop a couple of close ups on hereThis is to show the texture of the distressed frames I hand cut and the lace I used as a trim
The lower one shows the masculine embellishment I created from a metal button ...not sure where they came from but I unearthed a bag full..... and a short piece of elastic that had a ruffled edge and was hidden at the bottom of my ...well if truth be told ...DD ribbon box.
