Halloween Spirit


Been in a ghouly and silly mood for weeks after seeing the musical WICKED while in London in August which by the way is JUST AWESOME!!! Couldn’t resist joining a Hauntingly Halloweenfest A Fancicul Twist is hosting in Blogland today. Set up my Halloween decoration after getting back from Portland. I was so surprised to find stylish and cool Halloween deco from Martha Stewart. And thought I’d get out my digi beginner knowledge and added a chanedlier here, spider webs there, bats here … if it just didn’t take so long. But I certainly had fun.  Haven’t really done more than deco so far, but paint will follow eventually.

Bin seit Wochen in einer makabren und verrückten Stimmung, seit ich im August in London das Musical WICKED gesehen hab, das so nebenbei einfach nur SUPER ist!!! Mußte also das Halloweenfest, von A Fancicul Twist heute im Blogland veranstaltet. Gleich als ich von Portland zurückkam hab ich meine Halloweendeko rausgekramt und Neues aufgestellt. War angenehm überrascht zu sehen, wie cool und stylich manche Halloweendeko in den USA dieses Jahr ist, besonders Martha Stewart hat sich ins Zeug gelegt. Und hab mal wieder etwas digital gearbeite und hier einen Kronleuchter, da eine Spinne, da eine Fledermaus …. angefügt, würde alles nicht so lange dauern. Auf jeden Fall hatte ich Spass. Mehr als Deko hab ich leider noch nicht gemacht gekommen. Aber kommt noch.


Skeleton hands are creeping up from everywhere, welcoming curious observers. Watch out!


Skeletthände kriechen aus allen Löchern und begrüßen vorwitzige Beobachter. Gib acht! 


Mice are not the only ones interested in Halloween M&Ms, I’m wondering how long they will last anyway!
Nicht nur Mäuse interessieren sich für die Halloween M&Ms, ich frag mich sowieso, wie lange die Schale noch voll ist!


Even Wilton is going contempo and I couldn’t resist this skull cupcake stand, way cool.  No time for making cupcakes, so I offer dark Hershey kisses, and I’m blowing one right at ya! 


Sogar die Firma Wilton (bekannt für traditionelles Kuchenzubehör u.a.) hat zeitgenössisches und ich konnte diesem Totenkopf-Muffinständer nicht widertehen, viel zu cool! Anstelle Muffins, hab ich ihn erstmals mit Hershey-Schokoküssen in Zartbitter (und deshalb lila) ausgestattet. Hier ist ein dunkler Kuss für Dich!
