Yes, it’s Lame Post Friday. As regular readers know, however many foolish posts I make during the week, I always feel free to enjoy Lame Post Friday. I am sitting on my couch in Halloween pajama bottoms, bra off (don’t you DARE say TMI!), glass of wine beside me. There is an episode of 20/20 on the television that I would like to crochet and watch, but blog posts must be made (at least mine, by me). So where shall I start…
Since I had mentioned my Halloween pajama pants, I thought I’d grab my Tablet and take a quick picture. As we all know, the Halloween season begins the day after Labor Day. However, I like to celebrate the holiday all year long. To that end, we leave a few favored decorations out.
Steven bought me this lovely vampire at Aubuchon in Herkimer, now sadly closed. He is holding a Christmas ball in one hand and a bag of skulls in the other (I purchased the skulls for another purpose; he’s holding them for me). We also put the little stocking around his neck to make him even more appropriate as a Christmas decoration. I wonder if we ought to add a couple of accessories for Thanksgiving, Easter and the Fourth of July. Points to ponder.
This is one of our loveliest witches. We have quite a collection If we put them all out this year, perhaps I could make a witchy blog post with pictures. She did not come with the frog; he is part of Steven’s extensive collection of such amphibians.
Just to show you we are not complete Halloween maniacs, I include a picture of a couple of our year-round Christmas decorations. This is a Buyer’s Choice Caroler of Jacob Marley, which I purchased for Steven in 1989, after he had played the part of Jacob Marley in a production of A Christmas Carol. My, that WAS a long time ago! I cannot remember who gave Steven the nutcracker of Scrooge, but I believe it was my mother. That is a kaleidoscope in the foreground. We have a pretty cluttered knick-knack shelf.
