Halloween at my Sisters

My sister Julia is sooooooooo creative and loves Halloween. Julia has Halloween dinner for our immediate family (which is about 15) every year. It takes her forever to decorate and this is why....

This is Julias antique Hoosier decorated for the season...

 The main dinner table
 Side Buffet with desserts for after dinner (or before if you were brave enough to sneak them- I was)
 Some more desserts. I don't know if you can tell from the picture but this is a picture my sister got over 20 years ago and there are ghosts in the background- very spooky.
 This is the main table again with masks set for everybody...

 This is the little kids table- set a little more 'fun' rather then spooky

 Witch's cabinet with potions and spells etc.
 Witch's spell book
 Appetizers and beverages (the adult beverages are a little further down on the island)
Secondary table for the middle 'kids'
 Outside is set up with a graveyard
 Main entrance into the house- lots of candles, webs and spooky stuff
 Overall shot of the dining room with the 4 tables set
 Close up of one of the cloche's.

Our grandma- what an angel :)

 Felisha (Julia's oldest daughter)  ready for the party

 Chayton (Felisha's youngest) ready for the party

 Carter (Felisha's oldest) getting a bit of a sugar rush !

Me with my son Chance. I feel very short next to him at 5'7". He's 17 here.
  Julia does all this even without a team to prepare it with! Martha Stewart eat your heart out. To get a better look at all the detail - click on the pictures.

Saying goodbye in Long Sault

Three years ago this July 1st my sister Julia and I opened our booths at the Long Sault Antique store. Sadly, at the end of the month we will be no longer there. The owner of the store has decided to close the doors to pursue other options in his life. We have had a lot of fun buying and selling our antiques, re-purposing and finishing items that would have been thrown out otherwise. We are currently looking for another option to sell our stuff but at this time we haven't found anything. At the end of the month we will be gone so we have marked down most of our stuff for a quick sale. If you have been there already and seen something you liked then this is the time to go and get it. If you haven't been there yet then this is the time to go and check it out before the store closes for good. I am sure the other vendors will be having mark downs as well so there will be lots of treasures to get at a good price.

Because I haven't posted in forever

Just wanted to let you know that I am planning on having another bus trip to Vermont this year again (3rd year now) for the Vermont Quilt Festival. This year the show is during our Canadian long weekend (July 1st). The bus is scheduled for the Saturday on June 30th so this should not interfere with Canada day celebrations if you were planning on celebrating in town. Sorry..I can't do anything about the date for anybody that was planning on going away for the weekend for Canada day . The cost will be $60/person which includes the admission into the show. It's always a great time with lots of beautiful quilts and tons of vendors. We will do pick up and drop off in Brockville, Prescott and Cornwall again. Please let me know if you are interested in going. You can bring the cheque or money to me, mail a cheque or send me an email money transfer. Please let me know before you do an email money transfer so I can watch for it and give you a password to use.

PS.....Hope this makes you happy Maggie ;)
