Diane and Mike! Pure "vintage" Halloween!
Costumes were always simple and inexpensive. Diane is wearing a little dress/apron I made her and Mike his very Raggedy Andy cords and shirt. All that was needed - a couple of yarn wigs and a little work with eyebrow pencil!
(Mike hated the wig and nearly destroyed it before we plopped it on his head and grabbed this shot! Diane, of course, was MUCH better behaved.
I am wishing you all a Happy Halloween!

Almost 60 days until Christmas! And I am celebrating by baking a "old world" cookie that originated in central Europe sometime during the 1600's - Springerle!
Once Springerle is baked, the cookies must be stored in an airtight container for about 4 to 6 weeks prior to eating so baking them in celebration of "60 days until Christmas" makes sense! Right?

How to make table top ghosts - er - trick-or-treaters.
Note: My spooky friends are designed to haunt a table or mantle or peek out from a window sill rather than hang. The tallest is 16" and the littlest fellow is 6".
With care in packing, they can be saved from year to year. I still have two that are over 15 years old!
You will need:
Cheese cloth or gauze fabric
