Flowers in the house

I confess I have an undeveloped sense of Halloween fun.  I'm in awe of those Pumpkin Heads who love it more than Christmas. (my  recent driver, Ryan)  The first Halloween I worked in a flower shop, it was required that I wear a costume.  I balked, I resisted, I clenched my teeth. I was a Gypsy. Yes, I kind of got into it by the end of the day, but as soon as that red petticoat came off  when I went home, I was relieved.

I like helping customers achieve their Halloween visions.  We made a bouquet for the Bride of Dracula, and a wrist corsage for "Carrie".  I think I'm probably missing a great marketing opportunity with Halloween. O. Well.

Yesterday I dug into an old box to find a little creepiness for Jane's Flowers in the House Party.  Jane, I salute you today and every day hereafter. You are my hero!


Happy Halloween!

I thank you and I adore you for playing along.

I wish you'd blow that baby up so I could gaze into its eyes.

I'm not a costume wearer either. Don't even like Halloween parties so much.

But flowers, ah that's a different story.

Treats at your house today.

LOVE the hands!

I don't care for Halloween myself. I'll be hiding at home in the dark tonight.

Oh that is creepy! I am kind of with you on the Halloween thing. I go along with it for my daughter's sake, but I am much more into Christmas.
I hope you understood my ramblings about the Swedish Blinds? Happy Halloween! Love Linda x

I love the hands. And what a terrific bouquet. I'm with you on the whole costume thing, I prefer to see them on children. And I do enjoy that part—seeing the kiddies in their costumes come to the door begging for treats. Some of them even say thank you!
