Getting in the mood for Halloween ...and a nomination .

The weather is STILL hot here in Big D,but the local weather peeps promise cooler days ahead. That is enough for me to plunge head first into the holiday decorating pool,because you do know ,Halloween marks a collision course with the December holidays!!! Please don't get me wrong. I am a crazed Christmas junkie,you have but to glance at the number of posts in my December archives,to glean that little morsel about me....but in the here and now ,its all about the Samhain season! So without further adieu.... its time to get OOKIFIED !!!!
In my Youtube travels I found this version of one of my favorite songs,coincidentally done by a couple of my favorite Broadway stars! Why yes,as a matter of fact Carol Burnett was a Broadway star before her iconic television show. ...and Miss Chita Rivera...well she IS the original Spiderwoman after all! As a bonus we even get to see The Sultan of Samhain himself....Boris Karloff !! Heavens to Halloween I love Youtube!!!!

Time for another round of Fantasy Google Image Fashion Stylist!
I do wish to remind everyone I own none of these fabulous items. Even my magic closet cannot contain the wealth of the entire web ,its merely ,all about the google!!! I invite you to play along on your own site!
This time I began with a vintage dress from the 1930's covered in a Jac-O-Lantern print.
Cloaked myself in an amazing fringed shawl.
Added a DEE-lite-ful necklace from the DEE-licious Etsy shop Doll Disaster Design,
...slung a bat wing purse over my shoulder....
...and finished the ensem with these DEE-lectable shoes from the fall collection at Irregular Choice.
I am in the process of ookie-i-fying up The Pagoda,results to follow shortly. I bid on and naturally lost both the above die cut of the saucy little witch...
...and this rather atomic cutie. Dang!!! Those die cuts go for the price of an exotic but wacky vacation!

A Nomination

This week I was nominated for a Leon Rabin Award(the Dallas equivalent of the Tony's) for best supporting actress in a musical,for my work in the tribal rock musical Hair.I was quit DEE-lightfully surprised and quite honored.

congrats! That is superbly cool. I am in awe of your talent.

I love the bat wing bag and the shoes, I would so wear them all winter long. Who says bats and black and evilness only needs to come out once a year ;-)
