Freebie Friday- unhappily married photo

This is the strange wedding photo I found.  It looks like they just signed a merger.  She looks like a zombie and he looks like a deer caught in the headlights.  I wonder how it all went....did they fall in love or was it years of drudgery?  I hope it was good! 
Have a Happy Halloween this Sunday!

Growing up!

Here is my daughter Selina 3 years ago with her sister- Trix (tricks or treats is her nickname).  They love each other so much!  The cats love it when she plays outside...they play too.

Now Selina is growing up!! Here she is with her daddy and my hubby- greenbluff.....where it is a madhouse this month.  Everyone and their brother must be up there each weekend!  She likes more grownup things now, but still loves to play with her cats.  Her middle school softball team won the tournament!!

Great for using specialty fabrics for center of pincushions. You can also stamps on muslin for the top of the pincushion. Makes great gifts, friendship swaps, and craft show sales.

The old days- back in the 60's & 70's

Remember these guys....the munsters?  How about the Adam's family tv show (not the movies)?  I loved Dark Shadows, although I had to watch them as repeats....since I was born in the latter part of the 60's.  These were great come they never play them anymore?  I try to tell my 13 year old about them and the style of the times....she is very interested.  I still have my dark shadows game and we like to play it...very spooky...but a bit like candy  I wanted to be Lily munster, because she was pretty (in her way) and she was way smarter than anyone  I always wondered in Herman could get any dumber....and oh yeah, he could!  I much prefer all the older hokier scarier movies the new slasher, blood and killings of todays scary movies.  I will watch a vincent price or peter cushing movie any day....rather than the newer stuff.  But I must admit, I liked "the ring".  :)
