I got a fun surprise today from my friend Alice Hyde. She made these ATCs for me on Halloween. It's almost the middle of November and I'm still getting Halloween happy mail! Aren't I lucky! Thanks so much Alice, I love them! ((HUGS))
Here are a couple of pictures of my quest room with my Log Cabin Halloween Quilt on the bed. If you visit in October, you get to sleep under this quilt. This is one of 5 Halloween quilts that I have made.
Here are a few pictures from our trip to New England last week. It was absolutely spectacular. This was my first trip to see the trees and it won't be my last. We went to 6 different states and most were at peak color.
This week's theme was open and since it's just a few days until Halloween I thought I'd do something spooky. You can see all the wonderful submissions this week at: http://wednesdaystamper.wordpress.com/
Please check out the above link to a flickr photostream by Winona Cookie. She does the most amazing Halloween and Gothic pieces. She also had an Etsy store where you can buy some of these treasures! I hope you will visit her site and ~Enjoy!~
This week the theme is "The Spooky Season". Since the Circus comes to Denver every October and most people think clowns are pretty creepy, I chose this group of vintage clowns for my submission. Please check out all the wonderful, spooky submissions at: http://thisthursday.wordpress.com/
My lighted case with antiques and collectibles....it changes seasonally! My 6" lighted Halloween Tree with my collection of Radko ornaments. This doesn't look very big but the opening is 10' x 3' x 2'. It's the perfect spot to hold my Dept. 56 Halloween Village. This twin-sized Halloween quilt was designed and pieced by me. Cool lampshade, eh? I found this at Dragonfly Design Studios
Welcome to Kris Dickinson's "A Nostalgic Halloween"
Thank you for visiting A Nostalgic Halloween. I have loved this holiday since I was a small child. I love the decorations, costumes, trick-or-treating, parties and all the joys of this wonderful, fall holiday. I've created this blog to showcase my original art, decorations, favorite sites and information about Halloween (nothing too scary, though!) I also post Halloween Ephemera to share. I hope you enjoy a trip back through yesteryear....Happy Haunting!
