House cleaning

I collect stuff during Halloween....cause I have a problem, I love the stuff, no matter how cheesy :)

So here is my final Halloween prize pack giveaway....think of it as my Christmas present to you.

I have a whole bunch of stuff here...including the pumpkin cat costume that was worn by "Hal" the famous Davis Graveyard mascot....he told me I have to get rid of it or die....I figured the hat was not worth it.

I will put this all in priority mail box and send it out on Friday....with any luck you will get it the day before Christmas....if not....well, it is a good after Christmas present.

There is pancake mix and cookies, and mirror stickers black and black gloves with orange stitching and scrubber and a backpack with skulls and one of my Etsy hairclips on it and I have thrown in a few frog items....because I am the frog queen.

Just put a comment on this post before midnight on Thursday, December 21, and I will draw a winner on Friday am.

And because I am in marketing and I have a great tendency for evil....I will give you and extra entry for posting on Facebook  twitter or your blog about my Etsy store sale.  Yeah, I am quite aware how low that is.....and I am evil, as you know, so you have to understand, that I am fine with that.

BTW- I am only shipping this box in the continental U.S. ...sorry, I am unemployed at the I am only committing to a fixed amount of shipping.

Sorry, this does not mean I do not love all you friends....

Good luck to one of you cool Halloween people!

I made 34 spiders

That is not something that you would normally expect me to say.

I was just as surprised as you.

Each Christmas I make a special card for my closest and coolest friends.  I have made decorated Christmas trees, fairies, gift boxes, books.....but this year I made spiders to go with this Christmas story:

A long, long time ago, a gentle mother was busily cleaning the house for Christmas Day. Not a speck of dust was left anywhere. Even the little spiders had been banished from their cozy corner high up on the ceiling. To avoid the housewife's busy cleaning, they finally fled to the farthest corner of the forgotten attic.

Finally, it was Christmas Eve. The tree was decorated and the children delighted. But the poor spiders were frantic, for they could not see the tree, nor be present for the magic of the season. The oldest and wisest spider suggested that perhaps they could wait until everyone had gone to bed and then sneak through the crack in the door to see the wonders of the tree. The little spiders silently   and carefully came down out of their attic corner and across the floor to wait in the crack on the threshold.

When all was quiet, so the spiders quickly crept into the room. The tree towered so high that they couldn't see the ornaments on top. In fact, the little spiders' eyes were so small that they could only see one ornament at a time. They all scurried up the trunk, out along each branch, filled with a happy wonder at the glittering beauty. The spiders loved the Christmas tree. All night long, they danced in the branches, and every place they went left a trail of dusty, gray web. When at last they had inspected every bit of the Christmas tree, it was shrouded in the dusty gray of spider webs.

Santa smiled as he thought of the happy spiders seeing the tree and how much they liked it, but he also thought of how sad the little mother would be over the dusty tree. He reached out his hand -- and just then the sun came through the window and touched the tree. All the webs started to sparkle and shine turning into shimmering, sparkling silver and gold. The tree glistened in greater beauty than ever before!

According to legend, ever since this happened, people have hung tinsel on their Christmas trees.

I left these up

My sister in law gave me some fake vines.....I painted them black and put them in on of my perennial pots....they are going to stay there until spring.  I am happy.  Wonder what they would look like if I left them there through the spring and planted sweet peas over the top of them :D

And of course the skull that is in a pot by the walk way to the front door is there all year....the pumpkin will stay as long as it can survive.....come on pumpkin.

Yes, this is what passes for "normal" at the Davis house :)

I know it is obvious

That all the Halloween decorations are down by now.....but just in case you were is what the yard looked like after take is still weird to have a normal looking house :D
