Ghouls, Gigs and Great Treasuries

Pumpkin hand carved by hubby

I have had a very busy day today which started this morning at 6:30am finishing making Grace's Halloween costume...what a gorgeous wee pumpkin she made. I made it from two white t-shirts sewn together, which I dyed orange. I then stuffed it with padding and used a stencil and black hair spray/dye (fab idea by sis) to do the face on the front. Grace's tights were adult ones, so they spent the whole day round her ankles! bless XX

Then.... 9am this morning Take That tickets went on sale so sis was on the Internet and I dialled the telephone numbers all the way to Glasgow on a half hour train ride with nae luck. But just as I was giving up hope I called sis and she was just in the process of buying two tickets to see them in Wembley Stadium, London!! We we are off on an adventure next July (so far away) and I'm thinking of making it a wee family holiday for all. Can't wait. This was all before I got to work...and work was pretty busy. No rest for the blessed so they say.
Grace had her Halloween party at nursery so we were all very tired by the end of the day...zzzz

As I said in my previous post that I was very excited to get myself my first Treasury on Etsy and here it is in all its glory. It runs out Saturday am, so check it out before it goes.

Very, very cute. This is an ingenious costume! She looks like she had a great time, too :)

I saw your Treasury while sitting in the airport lounge in Lagos Nigeria on Friday night and thought it was Fab, I read the comments so I was not the only one who liked it.

All my love,
