Tomorrow night we will have a group of giggly teenage girls for a sleep-over party. They will watch scary movies and feast on the candies in these little witches broom favors. Thanks to Martha for that idea. I cut all the sticks last week and left them in a little pile on the porch and a sneaky golden retriever (who we all know and love) thought they were her hors d'oeuvres.... had to cut a whole new batch!
My dining room with those ladderback chairs that we bought before we were married. I think I am going to paint them black. I do love that mantle though. I think it was built in the 1950's even though our house dates back to 1849. I painted the brick which used to be bright red. There have been many alterations to this old house.
