Rockin' Around the Halloween Tree

Good Friday Morning!  T.G.I.F!!!

What a long week!  I think after you have had a holiday week with only working 4 days, the next week with 5 days, seems like forever...

Last weekend I put up our Halloween tree!.  This is a new tree that I just got that is black and silver with orange lights and I just love it.

Don't you just love all the orange and black and purple colors of Halloween? 

This little ornament is several years old.  I made this from the top of a cardboard box that a necklace came in.

This happy witch was a paper doll that I downloaded and then I just made her dress with different colored scrapbook paper.

This funny fellow is new this year.  I love making those medallion ornaments.

Then there is some of my friends left over from my girlhood who still visit each Halloween and sit under the tree.  Don't you just love that little owl?

Do you have a Dollar Tree in your area?  Our Dollar Tree has these adorable little houses that I have filled with pumpkin shaped Peppermint Patties.

What a cute Frankie!

This is my latest craft.  I've seen several "decorated" crows around pinterest and when I unpacked my Halloween things I found this crow and decided to give him a fancy collar and a party hat. 

He feels so dressed up now! 

Tomorrow, Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, I am heading just up the road to an old time auction.  It's been a while since there has been an auction held on site in our area.  Dear Husband and I used to go to auctions almost every weekend when we were first married.  This one is extra special because we knew the people who owned the items being auctioned off.  I have my eye on a Brownie drink bottle!  Remember those??

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love that tree and all the ornaments! Halloween crafts do give us a chance to use new and different colors. Hope you get to that auction!

Hi Linda,
What a sweet Halloween tree, and a wonderful tradition. I must get into the Halloween mode soon. Today was the first cool day here in Texas in a dog's age, so I'm almost feeling the approach of Autumn. Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh you do Halloween big my pal! I love seeing the many years of tree ornaments you have made. I can just imagine you with The Monster Mash playing while you decorate!

Ohmygosh, I thought I was the only one who had a Halloween tree. Mine is a regular green tree adorned with orange ribbons and Halloween ornaments and lights. I love it. So glad to see I'm not the only one!
