Last night was my witches brew party. Remember the invitations I posted earlier this month? You had to wear your own original witch hat to join the fun. A lantern lighted cemetary, complete with rod iron fence sections, welcomed all who dared to enter. I didn't take a picture of that either.
Here is Wendy. My husband took all of these great pictures against our living room wall and then added a little texture. Yes, I know that I am lucky to have such a wonderfully talented husband who is willing to do things for me.
Here is my daughter, Steph. This is her scary face.
Isn't she cute?
My sister-in-law, Shawn, won the award for the creepiest hat. Shawn's hat came complete with spooky sounds that she could turn on and off.
I had little voting cards that those who attended filled out to vote for their favorite in each category. The winners received either a ceramic pumpkin or cat, with a wire handle, filled with Halloween treats. Each one had their own little tag with the category listed in a Halloween font. Did I think to take a picture? No, even though they looked so cute lined up on top of my china cabinet (three black cats, and two pumpkin heads).
This is Margrett, my MIL. She came all decked out. Isn't she great! Black lace skirt, colorful scarves, striped stockings, silver shoes with lime green laces, Halloween bracelets, and even a lime green slip made out of netting. AWESOME! You gotta love it!
I love this picture. My husband asked us all to give out scariest face. This is great isn't it? (I hope she doesn't cast a spell on me for posting this but I couldn't resist. It's so good.)
She also won a prize..."Hat you are most likely to steal." She hand knitted this hat out of wool yarn and then felted it and added hand stitching. I told you she went all out.
Mischel had the best pose. She looks like you could put her right in to any Halloween movie. Look out...I think she is casting a spell on you.
Steph had a few of her friends from high school join us. Melinda crocheted all the flowers on her hat.
Another friend of Steph's. Mary Ann (Marnie) won: 'Most likely to belong to Glenda in the "Wizard of Oz."' These friends of Steph's are kind of like my kids. I get attached to the kids that spend time in my home. She even used my party invitation as a hat for her baby. (She knows how to follow ALL the rules. LOL)
Lynette, my SIL, came as "iron witch." Lynette truly competes in iron man contests. She attached to her hat all things you need to use in a race. She won the prize for the "Most Unique" hat.
OK, I wish I had only shown the back of my hat. I had little bats flying from wire on the top, a big bow in the back with a train, a feather boa around the edge, a feathered owl and vintage orange tinselly stuff loosely wired around the crown. I love my hat. I wore orange and black striped stockings and great witches shoes...pointy funny shoes.
My neighbor across the street, Kay. She is waaay too nice to be a witch.
Leslie was brave to come. She had never met any of us. Leslie is Brenna's mom and I was dying to meet her. She won for the "Most Ornate" hat.
She loves Halloween too. I hear her house is amazing this Halloween season. I'm going to make Brenna take me to visit and I'm bringing my camera so I can share pictures with all of you. Think they will let me?
This is our cute little Brenna. She is always smiling. If I had had a category for the sexiest hat, she would have won. Brenna is Eli's girlfriend.
I had a few late comers but didn't get their pictures. I had a good time. I think my friends did too.
Want to hear what else we did? If I get at least 10 comments, I'll tell you more. I might even take a picture of the back of my hat and also show you some Halloween decorations in my home. Come on I know you want to say hello and tell me what you are up to.
