New/Old Halloween collections...

Did you have a good weekend? It always goes by so quickly.  We hit a couple of estate sales in between lots and lots of Halloween decorating.
We really do use our record player and I was happy to find a Halloween records. 
The backside of the records are just as much fun as the music.
 I also found a brittle devil mask and a few honeycombs to add to my collection.
 A few more gurley candles were also scooped up. 
Unfortunately, the weather was extremely cold and rainy this weekend (highs in the upper 40s).
 Not the perfect conditions for Josie's elementary school road run but they made the most of it (even when it hailed).
 The weather was didn't clear up in time for Emma's marching band competition to play outside, but we enjoyed their amazing sound indoors. Their band is so large, I didn't fit them all in my camera shot.
The highlight of the weekend was getting my sunroom decorated.
This is only the beginning!  

Have a wonderful week!

More of that sun room please.
Geez- crazy weather for Josie and those poor kids ran in hail and sleet and rain and ....well, they are preparing to work in the post office later in their careers, I guess! lol

Debby has that right- you and that Viv would be a scary pair working together. xo Diana

I think I remember that Casper record! I agree with Ms. Diana - we need much more of the sunroom. Much much more!
