Rosiemoonbeams Halloween Party 2007

Check out all the photos from my last years Halloween Party. The Paper skull above was made by printing out 2 skull pictures, this one was an image I found online. In photoshop I flipped 1 of them, so that when printed and mounted on cardboard and cut out the image is two sided.

This is a graveyard wall mural I did on the wall as you come up the stairs from the front door. Go to Rosiemoonbeams Halloween Party Decorations to view more.
I am busy planning for Halloween Party 2008. I will be posting pictures of the props that I am working on so please check back.

Ghost Pumpkins from my urban garden!

Last spring I planted some flowers in my small urban garden. Some were from plants and some from seeds. But because of our early hot and dry season the seeds failed to sprout. I had added compost from my compost pile that I had started the summer before and tried to keep them watered. Although the seeds I planted failed, there were some surprises. I began to see plants coming up that looked like melon or cucumber leaves. They continued growing and I discovered that they were ornamental pumpkins. I had tossed ornamental pumpkins in the compost last fall after Halloween and Thanksgiving was over. I was happy to see the volunteer plants from the composted pumpkins. Here are my first three Ghost Pumpkins from these plants. There are a lot more of these little tiny 2 ½” white pumpkins growing in my garden and only one little orange pumpkin.

What's new with you!

Boy, did summer go by fast. Where did it go? What did I do? I found myself answering that last question with; a little bit of this and a little bit of that. As I thought about it, "a little bit of this and a little bit of that" pretty much describes what rosiemoonbeams is. Now that school has started I plan on getting my act together and organize things. I plan on opening an Ebay Store in time for Halloween and I have been listing some vintage items for sale at my Etsy Store. The photo below is a vintage clear plastic floral bracelet I have for sale. Check back often as I will be adding new items a couple of times a week.
