Ghoul's Night Out

If you haven't been here before, I've been putting up Halloween themed posts here and on Laume's Studio all month long. Feel free to browse back to see Halloween decorations, ghost towns, spooky art, and all manner of things seasonal. But today, we've been busy getting ready for the Bloglandia Halloween party. Busy, busy, busy.

We had a lot to do to get ready for tonight and of course, tomorrow. Shopping for costumes, scaring up food and drink. It was tiring and thirsty work. So, we stopped for afternoon tea before coming home and getting back to work.

While we were at the tea house we spied a pumpkin.

Peek-a-boo! Oh, wait! That's not a pumpkin, that's a Joli!

Eventually twilight arrived. The crows are restless.

Creatures of the night are roaming about.

The skies are stormy. The perfect night for the start of a party. Welcome! Come on in!

Pumpkins have gathered at the door to greet you.

One of the girls... er, ghouls have already arrived. It's not every day you see one dressed up in their ghostly pink party sheers! (She was a gift from my friend Shirley, isn't she cool!)

Would you like something to drink? I'd be happy to brew up a witchy pot of tea. Pumpkin spice flavor perhaps?

Or maybe you'd prefer something a bit stronger? Can you say "Midnight Margarita Party"? My daughter-in-law Lisa and I watched the movie practical Magic last night to get us in the mood. I found this great Dia de Los Muertos art label tequila and an appropriately colored mango margarita mixer.

Now, I'm off to check on some of the outside decor I've photographed for your enjoyment over on my studio blog. Please come on out there to take a look. And if you've stopped in early, come on by later tomorrow when we'll all be in costume!
