monday musings

Yes, I’m back.  Yes, it’s been awhile.  And yes, once again, I have great plans.
I’ve primarily used this blog in the past to keep family & friends back east, in Uruguay and wherever else they may be abreast of our doings in California.  I will continue to do that ‘cuz it does maintain some memories and helps my journaling whenever I get back to scrapbooking.  You’ll know how important it is for all of us to tell our stories…..but I digress….
I’m hoping to start sharing more of my Vintage Creations craftiness here.  I love being a flea at Paris Flea Market and I’ve expanded my space to include a teeny, tiny bit of furniture.  Here are a few shots of this past weekend as we were all decked out in Halloween spooky sparkliness (yes, that’s a word – go ahead – look it up).
I’ve managed to decorate partially at home for the Halloween / fall season.  as soon as October 1st rolled around the kids had me heading up to the attic to retrieve the Halloween decorations.  I love how they love all the different holidays.  I love to decorate for them as it is, but their enthusiasm and help only makes it that much sweeter.  as soon as I’m done decorating around here I’ll get some snapshots and share.
Speaking about the kiddos, Lexi will be stepping out as “baterina” this Halloween.  That would be a ballerina w/ bat parents  ; ).  Picture black tutu, purple&black striped tights….  you get the picture.  It’s actually pretty cute.  She decided early, had me order it online promptly and it’s been sitting in wait for a couple weeks now. The other one on the other hand, keeps going from the joker, to the dark knight, back to the joker, to the scarecrow, and now back to the joker.  I think the joker is a fabulous idea, the problem is obtaining a costume that satisfies Sebastian quality demands and a reasonable budget.
Stay tuned…..
