My little Haunted Tree House
is ready to travel anywhere.
To give a special far-away friend,
a creepy little scare.
Each name was written down
and dropped in my aqua pot.
I wished every friend some luck,
because I adore you all a lot.
I stirred them all around
and shook them a little while,
when I finally drew a name
it was, ‘Quarter Acre Lifestyle’ !!
Wendy & Roger are Kiwi’s, living the “Good Life” frugally on a quarter acre parcel of land in New Zealand. Quarter Acre Lifestyle is their WordPress Blog and Tumble Downs is their on-line shop offering handmade natural soaps, dog sitting and at times, arts and crafts made by them. Crafts, gardening and doggies! Certainly sounds like the “Good-Life” to me. I’m looking forward to getting to know them better. Congratulation’s Wendy and Roger, please contact me here Boomdeeadda@gmail.com to arrange mailing!
Urban Spooktacular !
As I’ve bragged about often, I have the best job ever ! Working at Urban Scrapbook is always fun and inspiring. This past Saturday we had a Halloween Crop. To all you non-scrapbook folk, it’s where a whole bunch of creative people come get together to craft, gab, eat a yummy meal and win prizes!
Some of you may already know, I dressed as Amy Farrah Fowler. “She’s a girl, she’s a friend, but not a girlfriend” is how Sheldon would describe her on my favourite TV show, The Big Bang. I wore the jean skirt, nasty green sweater, icky tights and flat sensible shoes. Of course there was the trademark barets and purse too…hehehe. I even bought some drugstore glasses that seemed Amyish.
Then, one of the fab owners of the shop, Lori, dressed as Flo the Progressive Insurance lady. Lori even dyed her converse sneakers to match! Hmmmmm, remind you of anybody?
Oh! Guess how many kids we got at our new house? We figure it was around 150. We went out for more candy twice. That’s sure a change from our home in the country where we’d get maybe 6 kids on a busy year, LOL. So until next year, all you Halloween enthusiasts stay creepy. Looks like it was another successful year of monsters, haunters and winners.
