Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
 A made this swag for Hanna.  Someone sent the fabric to me and I just can't remember who but thank you!  It is so cute.
I hung my Apple Core for the month.
Here are some of our other decorations.
 Hanna decorated a little tree with our glass Halloween ornaments.  The nail stickers are from TJMax.
Whew - the swap is complete and they are all on their way to the swappers.
 Here is a setting that I'm playing with with my solids.
Here's a real treat!  Have you seen this cake at the store?  I was sceptical but you use fresh eggs and fresh butter.  Hooray!!  I added a TBs of Kahlua to the cake mix and it added a lot of richness.  (I happened to make this on a Friday - hence the Margaritas, lol).
Hanna and I had some Halloween fun at the zoo.
 the sunglasses really make it, huh?  ha ha
Hope you have a Happy Halloween filled with fun and lots of Chocolate.

  1. And Boo to you too! Thanks for the cake idea. I haven't bought a mix in 20 years, butt hen I don't bake much any more so I think I will try it. With Kahlua of course!

  3. LOL!! So much Halloween fun!! Your Halloween tree is so awesome, I know I would have fun looking at each decoration on it. It's always a treat to see your apple core quilt, and what a great trick to add extra Kahlua to that delicious looking cake. I love what you're planning with your swap blocks.

  5. I hadn't seen this cake mix before, but will look for it. With just two people in the house it's too much to make a regular size cake. The Kahlua idea sounds great too!

  6. Fun decorations! Adding Kahlua sounds like a good idea - I'll have to try that. I bet it's fun to play with the swap blocks! I look forward to seeing what other people do with their blocks too :0)

  9. Your apple core quilt is so clever! Great decorating. I passed on spreading the cobwebs this year. Barely got the decorations out about a week ago.
    It must feel good to have the swap completed!
    Love the small cake. Very smart of someone to have come up with that.
    Great shots at the zoo--and yes, the sunglasses make all the difference! : )

  12. I don't think I have seen the Poisoned Apple quilt before. Good wording on it and fits the apple core shapes that are pieced together.

  18. Looks like you kids had a fun Halloween! You're so good to still decorate -- I gave up a few years after the kids were gone. I've saved everything though -- just in case little grandkids happen to be around some year. Love the cute new banner!

  22. All the decorations look great ; love those cobwebs on the chandy! :)

    I HAD seen that cake mix at the store ; had to laugh since in the last year or so the damn cake mix boxes shrunk in size and you need about 2 now to make a decent layer cake! :)
