Starting another new month...

Here we are into October already. Seems like we just changed the calendars for September and where did it go? The days just fly by so fast. Why is that? My mother used to tell me when I was young that "the older you get, the faster the time goes". I remember her saying that many times and wondering how that could be. Well, here I am and I find it's true. I'm pretty old and yes, the time does go by very fast. That's life, I guess.

I wanted to show you my Halloween Spice Rack that I made last year. I did not think this up, I saw it in a magazine (Somerset, I believe), and I used what I had on hand to make it. I love it and can't wait to set it up when I decorate for Halloween next week. My grand kids all loved it and I think I will make one for them this year. I've been saving some jars and bottles all year so that I can do this. So here are some pics of the project:

The Halloween Spice Rack with ingredients to create and potions and spells......


Beast Heart, Evil Dust and Belladonna. The little basket has snake eggs in it.....
Ground Chicken Claws, Powdered Snake, and Crow Feathers.....
Powdered Bat Heart, Scales of Dragon.....

Dried Lark Eyes, Salted Owl and Things that go bump in the night..... I actually took the pics before I put it away in the attic last year, which doesn't seem so long ago. Haha. I had a lot of fun with this, if you want further instruction on this project, let me know and I will be happy to give further information on how I did some of the jars and what is in them. 'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
