Halloween happiness!

My dear friend Renee (My Vintage Mending) shared earlier this week on her blog that she made me a special Halloween apron. When the package arrived, not only did it contain this sweet apron, it also contained so many other special goodies...

Just look at all these aprons!!
(I'm not loving myself in the pics, but the aprons are adorable)

Even Josie got a Wonder Woman apron!

Aside from all her homemade creations, she even tucked in this vintage apron!
(Which will be perfect for my apron wall in my craft room).

Aren't these the sweetest Halloween cookie cutters?

She knows I collect vintage party & craft books.

(I'm completely smitten with the images)

Linking up with:

She also made me this darling garland filled with tiny honeycomb lanterns. I have a craft room filled with vintage paper lanterns and I've never seen such delicate tiny lanterns before.

Too too sweet!
It will take a place of honor in my special room.

These Christmas ornaments will also be perfect on my feather tree.

I am sooo darn spoiled.
Thank you, Renee.

We're down to the wire with party preparations.

The next 24 hours will be spent setting up the carnival games and sorting prizes & preparing treats for Saturday night's BIG event.


I promise to attempt a video tour of our decor and party fun to share with all of you later.

Have a frightfully fabulous weekend!

love those paper lanterns! And that book looks so cute. I'd love to read about parties from that time period- much more fun than going to Chuck E. Cheese, I'd bet!

Wonderful friend to send so many gifts-but you certainly are deserving of surprises!
You make me feel like I can never live up to your party preparations-but I am determined to have fun!
Don't make yourself crazy-enjoy the weekend!
Think about a visit sometime after your party is over....
hugs!

Have a wonderful time at your party tomorrow!! Everything looks wonderful!! Aw, you gals look so cute in your aprons from Renee! She is so sweet. And those tiny little lanterns on the garland are adorable too. The vintage party book is so perfect for you! I'm going to have to join in on this little vintage book meme next time... that speaks to me.

What beautiful aprons. Those are just fabulous and Josie's is so sweet (in a superhero sort of way). That garland with lanterns is pretty amazing too.
