 Hellooo Out there in Blogland! I've missed you guys! I finally got my computer back today. First it went to "Dell", only to find out that the screen was cracked and the repair wouldn't be covered by warranty. So back it came, and then it had to go to someone local because that would at least be cheaper. Anyway, Ernie (Angie's cocker spaniel) won't be allowed to watch his chipmunk videos on YouTube anymore. Pretty sure that's how the screen was broken.
 I made this wreath last week. Everything (except the white candy container) came from Michael's. I kept going back with my coupons, so the whole thing came to about $9.00. I got the candy container for a quarter at the flea market. This funny lady at the flea market started throwing all her things into a big box marked .25! She said "I want it all gone!"  LOL
 Good thing I took part in Deb and Sandy's Halloween Swap, because I didn't decorate this year! Just didn't have the energy. And I have to save it for Christmas Decorating, right??? lol

 Sandy was my partner, so I knew that I would be getting some very special things. Sandy just "gets me". We have similar souls I think ;)
She sent this adorable tag, above.
 And her cookie cutter couldn't be cuter!
 Of course there were lots of other fun things, packaged in pretty little bags and ribbons.
And because Sandy is so good to me, she even included these amazing Christmas paper graphics.
Of course I was thrilled to see some x-mas tucked in there!
Wasn't that just the best package ever? Oh! Not shown is the candy corn. Hmmmm where could that have gone? LOL Thank you Sandy! I'm lucky that we're friends!
 Deb, Tammy, and I went to the "October Afternoon Warehouse Sale" a few weeks ago. And then we had a "craft session" at Deb's house the next day. Deb was such a great hostess! Among other things, she gave us this sweet handmade candy bucket! Didn't she do a great job?
 I found a couple Gurley candles. The Ghost in the haunted house was at Goodwill.
 And these two pails were there too!
So that's it for Halloween this year.
But this girl is not Spooky! This is Xena! She was our last foster girl. She only stayed with us for three days, but she was such a sweetie! Her owner decided that they were done using her for making puppies (after 8 years) and so they put her on Craig's List for Free. They didn't even ask where she'd be going or anything...just dropped her off and drove away.  She's now with a long term foster (we just do emergency/short stays at our house), and waiting for her forever home.
Somebody will be really lucky to have her!
Talk to you again real soon, now that I have my computer!!!
Erica :)
