Halloween at Gigi's

Boo, Glitterinas!

Things don't get very scary here at Five Gables Farm for
Halloween.

I have always enjoyed the fun parts of Halloween,
 not the scary ones.....you know, 

the cute little witches,

 the smiling ghosts,

glittery black cats!

Oh, I almost forgot.....the yummy candy, too!



Let's look at some of the
fun Halloween decorations around the house.




I really enjoy seasonal decorating and 
fiddling around by moving this here
and that there.....

I also enjoy making decorations to use in our house.


The youngest grand~darling still thinks my pet ghost 
is real.....and that we have to be very quiet or we'll frighten 
it away!




Here is a little, framed Halloween collage
 and 
a picture of my two 
favorite trick or treaters from over twenty years ago!


Spooky!


This is about as scary as it gets at Gigi's.....







This is my new favorite piece for this year.

It's really more Autumn than Halloween, so it'll stay out until 
Christmas is ready to fill the house!

I wish I could get a better shot of it.....


When witches go riding


And black cats are seen


The moon laughs and whispers



Tis near Halloween!



I made these wooden spoon treats for my sweet,
Bunco friends!  They looked cute waiting on the 
dining room table to go to their new homes!




Do you have lots of ghosts and goblins who visit you
at Halloween?

Have you filled your candy bucket for them yet?


Thank you for taking time to visit me here at
Pink Glitter today.

Leave me a note so I'll know you stopped by.....



Booooo to you, Glitterinas,
Tammy

My Grand~Darlings Have Gone Batty!

Welcome to Pink Glitter!

Thank you for taking time to open up this post and share 
a moment with me!

Let's spend some time in the craft room today, Glitterinas!

I have a simple, quick and fun craft to share.

I'm making bats....cute, little, black, paper bats!

With a twist.....

Are you interested?

Let's get busy.....

The materials needed for this project are:

a bat template
(You can find many templates to choose from online. 
I have had this one for years....it could be from Martha Stewart.)



 black construction paper
(or a pink glitter bat might be fun, too)



and a picture to cut up.....here's the twist.....



My grand~darlings are going to be the bats!
Well, their faces are, anyway.....

Also needed:
scissors
glue
ribbon
glitter

Trace the template on folded paper and cut it out.




I made three bats.

Next, add the glitter, if you like.

Goodness, the paper looks brown, doesn't it?

Weird....


Then, I trimmed the faces that I'll be adding to the bats!


Glue the faces on the bat shapes....why did these 
make me laugh?



The girls got bows and little mister got a tie!


What do you think, Glitterinas?

Who would you like to turn into a bat?

Ummm, wait, did that come out right?



Now I just have to find the right place for these 
little Halloween bats to hang out!


Happy crafting, Glitterinas!

Give this little, easy project a try....and let me know how your 
bats turn out!


EEEEK!!

There are bats in my kitchen.......and the grands thought they were funny!










Hugs and glitter,
Tammy

A Family Wedding!

Welcome to Pink Glitter!

You've chosen a fun day to stop by.......
I'm sharing wedding pictures!

This wonderful couple got married!



Their vows to each other were so kind and so 
personal.

They both told about being so thankful that the Lord had 
put the other one into their life 
at just the perfect time.

God is good, isn't He?

His perfect planning and timing 
never cease to amaze me.


Our newest family in the clan.....

Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Pick.



The ceremony and reception were held in the same venue.

The decorations set just the right mood for a 
fun, family wedding.

Let me show you some of the cuteness, Glitterinas!



I really want this wheel barrow to roll right on
to my house!



This was a loving and thoughtful touch, Christy!


Boy, I would love for this door/shelf to join the wheel barrow and 
come right on over to my place!



My sweet, talented husband did all the floral pieces.....



This arrangement was fabulous!  It was my favorite.....





I helped tie a few bows, 

pick this up and put it over there,

find a place for this,

hang this here....

you know, helping with the last minute little things!

The groom's mom, Christy, put so much time 
(and a few sleepless nights) into this wedding.

It all paid off, Christy, it was great!

It is always so nice to have a family gathering 
because I love getting to see everyone.

I enjoy having a nice visit with family I don't get to see
as much as I'd like.


Here's my wonderful Father-in-Law!
Yes, he's the one with the barns full of crusty, rusty treasures!

Lookin' handsome, Papaw Jack!


Look who we have here.....the handsome groom 
with Cousin Debbie and Aunt Janet.

He was remarkably calm....hmmmm, wonder what 
he was drinking?!




Tah~dah....a lovely bridesmaid!

You look fabulous, Miss T!


I have no pictures to share of the gorgeous bride.....boo hiss....
I volunteered to video the ceremony, 
and then when the reception got rolling, I just forgot....
so.....my sincerest apologies, Glitterinas!

Anyone who got to see her would tell you 
she was an amazing bride!

A wonderful evening was enjoyed by everyone!

Love was all around, a delicious dinner and crazy dancing 
finished off the evening.....but the sweetest spot in the hall....


could have been.....


the S'mores Bar!



I'm toasting to a long, healthy, and happy life 
together for 
Susan and Josh Pick!



You know I love you both!

Hugs and glitter,
Aunt Tammy
