Ready to Harvest
Pumpkin Progress, a photo by dragonflydesignstudio on Flickr.
The over 95 degree weather for a week brought out the powdery mildew. This patch has it bad. Going to harvest this patch next week. Give them a dilute bleach wash to kill bacteria and store in a cool dry place until October. There is a too big for me to lift one in this patch for a total of 6 good sized pumpkins. The lower bed will have 4 or maybe 5.

Double Feature Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein
Turner Classic movies has been celebrating 100 yeas of Universal movies with showings of classic movies on the big Screen. In September you can catch Hitchcock's The Birds and in October a double feature of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. For times and participating theaters go here. My personal favorite To Kill a Mocking Bird will be out on November 15th. These are limited one night showings so don't miss a chance to see these great movies on the big screen.

The Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkin changing color
Originally uploaded by dragonflydesignstudio
The weather has been in the 90s now for several days. The pumpkins started showing a bit of orange! This patch has 6 that are good sized with a classic look. The lower bed has at least 4 that will be fine pumpkins. Yay!

Review of Martha Stewart Halloween Goodies
Who loves a carnival? All of the items featured in this entry were ordered from The Vintage Halloween Store.
Halloween at Horchow
Horchow. So far nothing you can't find at other retail shops. My hope is they will still offer a few exclusive ceramic skull signature pieces. If you like the Steampunk Skull and the glitter skulls the entire line from Katherine's Collection is called Moonlight Sonata.

Haunt in a Hurry!
Wow...retail space with a 5000 sq ft basement wants the college theater department to put on a haunt. My scenic designer spouse just called to tell me this and that they want a haunt this year!!! There will be much discussion about this tonight. Not much time to pull something off but it could be interesting.

Glow in the Dark eyes!
Found here. This lace piece is similar to the skull lampshade, valance, or mantel piece all in one that Heritage Lace still offers. The beauty is you can string multiple pieces with a ribbon to hang just about anywhere. I think they would be cute gathered around a chair seat for the dining room.
