Welcome, Foolish Mortals…



Welcome to our Halloween Celebration.  We have been expecting you.

Come inside and make yourself comfortable.  Hang up your cloak and park your broom…..hall_tree3

Don’t mess with Medusa or she’ll get very angry…. Oh No!!! I think she’s getting unhappy with us….We better be moving onpleasant_medusamean_medusa

Take a look around but excuse the housekeeping.  We’ve been very busy and things have gotten a bit disheveled.  Don’t mind the spiders, they seem to be taking over but we think they are harmless…..chandelier_2

Come into the “Living” Room and sit for a spell….



Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched?


On the mantle you can see some of our nutcracker collection….the wooden skull was carved by Brandon, the other two are vintage.


There is one of our felines, Leo, by a bust of our dear departed Uncle Vladamir…. Leo loved old Vlad but it looks like he has made a new friend.


Try not to pick up any hitchhikers from our home, but sometimes it is unavoidable.


Our Halloween tree is decorated with autumn colors and some hand crafted ornaments.




On the tree is the ornament I won earlier this year in a giveaway.  It was created by the wonderful artist, Laurie Hardin….


Come into the kitchen and have a bite before you have to run….

Maybe you’d like a scary Spider Cupcake and a tasty drink concoction…



Look at the time it is getting late…..batwingclock

Some Other News!!!

Last Wednesday our son heard something outside, he opened the front door and this is what was there….

This little guy apparently was dropped off by someone and he really wanted in the house.  He was climbing our screens and making himself be heard.  After spending a couple days looking for a home for him it started to really rain.   Brandon felt bad for him and put him in his shop thinking he could be a shop cat.  A couple days later, it got really cold and we decided that he is a super nice and lovey cat and that we could make room in our home for him.  I scheduled the vet appointment to make sure he was good and healthy and everything checked out so not we have a new kitty.


Only a few problems….Molly, our other black cat, is very sassy and doesn’t like any changes.  She will not take this well.  Leo, our gray cat, is trying to get along with kitty and I think in the end they will be good buddies.

Our other problem, we can use your help to name him.  We cannot decide on a name.  So please vote in our “Help Name our New Kitty Poll. Also, if you think he should be named something other than one of the names on the list, please enter it in the “Other” space.
