The Fanciful Twist Halloween Party

Some men see pumpkins as they are and ask why,
I dream pumpkins that never were and ask "Why not"?
U.S. President John F. Kennedy dreaming
about a 1500 pounder in the oval office one January.
Today is the Halloween Party hosted by http://www.afancifultwist.typepad/. This is an awesome blog...extremely creative, and a pleasure to read and be inspired. I am participating in her Halloween Party today. Vanessa, the creator of this fabulous site has assembled a small gathering of 75+/- blogging friends to post some interesting seasonal pictures to inspire our upcoming holiday! Be sure and go to A Fanciful Twist to be inspired by all the blogging creativity! A favorite crafting revival of mine...remember my affection for the plastic beaded fruit? Well, this is my version of the plastic beaded jack-o-lantern!

Yes, this is a fantastic green suitcase. I painted these pumpkins on this a few years ago, and has now become a standard decoration on our front porch. For the Christmas season...I just turn it around and there is a snowman scene on the other side. You will get to see that later.... All my porch pillows are tied with seasonal colored ribbons...just a simple little decorating touch to remind us of the season.

Hope you stop be and see all the Fall/Halloween photos at http://www.thefancifultwist.typepad/. Much inspiration to be found! Enjoy!
