Get your best candy game on , we are moving into the perfect sweet storm. Imagine one day someone thought this up..let’s go to the neighbors and ask for candy. I love this tradition.  I love when my kids would comeback from the evening and count and recount and divide by likes and dislikes, trade with each other and of course the tantrums when they thought one was missing from their stash.  Oh those times. We had a great scheme to get rid of all the candy after a few days.  They could trade it with the candy witch and she would leave a movie for them..That always worked!!  Just didn’t like that enormous amount of candy in the house….like anyone does?  oh An old postcard glittered and some vintage wallpaper makes the best vignette.

Don’t forget raffle in previous post would hate for you to miss out.


Cast a Spell!

Some more Sis Boom Halloween ideas.  Black Spray Paint is your best bet for everything Halloween.  Silver Spray paint comes in handy as a base for silver glitter.  The rest is up to you.  I love old vintage finds and black festooning or crepe paper for adding the perfect touch.  Check out this cool basket with faux crow!!!  or this glittered star for your porch door.  Make it up.  Let our Halloween inspire yours.  We are watching , so show us your decorations we’d love to see.




Not so scary

I like to do things that are a bit funky for Halloween.  Spray paint a suitcase black and just go nuts on it!!  Makes a great backdrop for your bewitching table.  Then there is always a need to change up a party hat so you can have a rather ghoulish time doing that.  Have a party, a candy corn party and keep it light no need to be ultra scary for the wee ones.  Hey to all of you thanks for continually making my day. xo

The Good Witch

The Good witch has a sparkly hat with an old castoff buckle!!!  Take our ideas, enjoy them, show us yours in our flickr group!!! Oh and have a great day..xo
