Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt

Last weekend, while shopping in my favorite Halloween store, I found the perfect set of plates. They even match my soup tureens and most of the other dishes. They may not be for every one, which is fine, because now their mine! (there I go rhyming again! It must be a curse, or something worse!) The best part is, they were cheap. I swear, every year we find the best Halloween stuff at Ross. They are now my go-to Halloween party store.
I guess this means I'm having a Halloween party. I do this every year, never sure if I'm having a party, then I found something and my mind gets changed. But the party is now on!
We even found a few crystal skulls. Some were goblets and are as big as the plates, not sure what their function is.
But look how well the play together! It was meant to be.
Funny thing was, I found one of each skull while shopping in Sacramento. Cousin Linda and I went into the Ross next to Ikea and I found them. Hubby liked skulls and keeps them on display all year. When this special season starts, I raid his office and "borrow" a bunch of cool stuff.
Last week Hubby and I went into our local Ross and found 3 of each skull. It was like they spilt them up and we found them and made them into a family again. Aaahhh! It's that serendipity?
Maybe today I actually get some quilting done. I have been seriously slacking. I remove some bad stitches and than do nothing. I'm a bad girl! Our Quilt Show is a month away and I really only have until the 6th to have my quilts done and what am I doing? Slacking!
I also started something new. I know, bad girl! I really must have ADD or something! No I'm procrastinating and whining. So to get back to work!

Take care, Brandie

Those are entirely too much fun. Party!! I love Ross, ours is usually kinda messy, but you can find some of the best stuff there. I love their baskets and boxes personally.
