Halloween Past and Present
I actually love this coat!!! Fall colors and all.
Guess who's Mom was not the most creative on the block??? Notice the snarky grin rather than a smile! Geez Mom, did we have a shawl or something...a blue turtleneck...really
Some one's Mom was more creative than mine. I was so envious of those boots and cape I almost cried!
In the "What the Heck Were You Thinking" Category...I can't believe I actually went out in public dressed as a deranged sugar plum fairy or something. I am so not sure what look I was going for that night. It was the late seventies...what can I say?
No money, no problem...grab some nighties, slippers, hair curlers and nets...ta dah...costume!!!
Notice older child looks like she is thinking...just wait until we pick out your nursing home!
And the "What should have been a costume but really IS NOT" category.....
Back yard view of my Mother's childhood home in Germany...my aunt still lives there...pretty creepy looking...huh...note wooden shed not to be confused with wooden outhouse in rear of yard. In one of my previous posts I mentioned the outhouse and the creepy cellar. Members of our family have lived in this house for 80+ years. That cellar gave me nightmares...one section was for beer and lemonade (kept it cold) it was delivered weekly in crates...one section held fire wood...one section was for storage and the infamous bathing section and laundry area...this place is perfect for a Halloween Scarefest. So whatever you do or don't celebrate today...have a great one! Happy Halloween! Excuse me, I hear the candy dish calling my name...
