Shining Stars...

have really peaked my interest this year!

Maroon stars that hang from the tree.

Sparkly silver stars in large and small.

Tinsel stars on a stem for that finishing touch on a gift package.

These lovelies will be available for purchase at...

Murder At Club HellFire

It all began with a reminder for Club HellFire guests to join us on Hallow's Eve!

But how did the Hollywood guests know each other?

Their names were made into these...

And pinned to each guest package...

As the evening approached guests were welcomed...

By the host or shall I say Frida's ghost?

The guests were forced to eat...

The guests list included actresses, reporters...

Actors, producers, detectives and such...

Do you recognize White Gold and Shock G?

It wouldn't be a murder mystery without the widow...

And a murderer (posed with Edward Cullen)...

Skits were acted out and voted upon...

The winners included (left to right) Jules Milton (Best of the evening), Crystal Beech (Best Actress), Les Tyran (Best Actor) and Ghana Moon (Best Producer)

The cops came...

And the evening came to a close...

Frida and her Lover are still recovering from a sucessful Halloween!

October Decor Recap

Since I didn't post at all in the month of October, I must recap my Halloween Decor!

What's Halloween without a glittered chandelier?

Did you get a Trick or a Treat this year?

Inspired by Wendy Addison's Carpe Diam Skeleton (pictured in the photo), I created the rest of them as Skellie Awards for my Murder Mystery party (more on next post).

I started to collect vintage silver pieces this year. I love the tarnished look of them!

Hope you didn't get "hung up" on Hallow's Eve, like I did!

I actually couldn't bring myself to pack away this birdcage (minus the cobwebs) from my book shelf.

The ants crawling out of the broken egg creep me out!

One of my favorite vingettes this year...yes that is a mold of my teeth.

I especially love this display at night

Off To The Theatre....

I consider myself very lucky to live decently close to The Theater of Dreams...

I attended Wendy Addison's Halloween open house last month (a bit late in posting, but well worth it)

As I approached the entrance, I knew it was going to be a special treat

The eye candy was amazing!

I LOVE how the glass magnifies the red branch!

The lighted skeleton is Mister Bones and he dances behind the screen!

Indeed! A magical place to visit and Wendy herself couldn't be nicer!
