Happy November

Why am I up?? I don't know. I couldn't sleep, so I am up and just made a pot of tea. I love this teacup! I got it at the thrift store in Westport for only $1. I love it!! I have these Cath Kidston fabrics displayed on my bakers rack. I painted it blue about 12 years ago and it is very chippy now, as you can see in the photos.
Well, it is officially November. I hope your Halloween was spooktacular! If the Candy is Free, It's the candy for me! That's what my ten year old son decided when we were leaving to go trick or treating.He comes out with the funniest stuff.

Here are my goblins all dressed up. My 16 year old is too old to dress up, so he says. He actually stopped at an early age. When he was 9 or 10 he didn't want to dress for Halloween any more. He thinks the rubber rat is funny though. I really can't believe it, he will be 17 in just a few months. WOW!! Time does fly by.

I wish I brought my camera with me trick or treating. We can't trick or treat up here by my house. The houses are all too far apart. Plus the roads are too narrow and dangerous to walk on with children. So instead, we went down to the Guilford Green. This town really gets into Halloween. All the houses were decorated, people all dressed up. There were even guys in scary monster costumes hiding in the bushes and behind trees waiting to scare us as we walked by. Several of the houses had smoke machines. Alex had the best time ever. Actually we all had such a good time. It was quintessential New England. We walked along in the crunchy leaves in perfect weather. It was very mild, just a sweatshirt was comfortable.
I have been working on another project. This is the before photo. I will have the after photo in just a couple of days. I can't wait to show you. It is totally different. I went bold with the colors too. Usually I use shabby pinks and whites, but this piece wanted a bright, bold look!!

I have created a facebook page for Belle Maison. Please join me on Facebook if you want. I put all my specials up and lots of pretty photos of the new items I have for sale in my shop.
