Friday evening was spent carving pumpkins

Mr Lucey carved these two

Mine's the bat in the middle,I think I should have made the bat smaller.

As it started to get dark I decorated outside the house and we had loads of kids visit us.

The pics arn't very good I should have looked at them, there's a garland of pumpkins along the gutter and we put a couple of pumpkins in the bushes at the front.

The kids had great outfits on,


Everyone enjoyed themselves


A scary time was had by all, happy halloween.

After much nagging my lovely son has been in the loft to get the Halloween decs down and this afternoon I collected some leaves bought some apples and filled the dish with sweets for the kiddies.

What a face eh???

If you look closely you'll see a squirel an owl and a little mouse,

Witches hat tea light holder

You can't see in this photo but the face and hat has coloured lights that flash on and off.

Some lovely card's

My sister Julie made us this card, she's always  full of good idea's.

These were the last two pumpkins in the shop but they're expecting a fresh delivery in the morning so I'll pop in before work for a couple of bigger one's, then Mr Lucey can work his magic on them with the carving set.
On Saturday when the pumpkin's are carved and I hunt out the broomstick, put up the garland and paper lantern I'll show you the pics.
Until then bye for now, Lucey xx

Brooches and buttons...

I sent for this brooch from Dotty daisies its made from layers of wool with a felt button in the middle and  it will go on the collar of my new coat this winter , I do have a thing for brooches...and I got this little bird free for being her first customer kind...

Next I ordered these gorgeous cupcake buttons,  I havn't decided what to do with them yet... maybe sew them onto a cardigan or

the bottom of a scarf or onto a pair of gloves... Also this Union Jack brooch ...For this I've got a notice board in mind....They were from country cottage chic...

Then I ordered these lovely green buttons from e bay, my fingers keep clicking and I'm buying allsorts haha , I havn't quite decided what to do with them yet.. but.. they remind me of wobbly jellies , I'll have to think about that one!!! I'm off to bed now to dream up some ideas well... I do get an extra hour tonight hehe  night all   Love Lucey x
