Orange Cupcake Toppers

Don't you love Halloween?


It's so much fun to make Halloween decorations.


A little clay, paint, pipe cleaners, crepe paper and hot glue.


I made these pumpkins a couple of years ago with Styrofoam balls covered with Paper Perfect, then painted.











Rubber stamps are fun and easy. Stamps are from http://www.redlead.typepad.com/
They are my favorite shop for papercraft supplies.


And look what sweet Erica at http://goldeneggvintage.blogspot.com/ sent to me to cheer me up after my knee surgery! She knows I love Mary Englebreit!



I just love my blogging friends. Thank you Erica.




Check out these scary Halloween books to read in October.
They are sure to scare you--and good!

Wilma is trying to pick out the cutest costume to wear this year. She says she wants to scare Huey!

Happy Haunting,
from me and Ms. Wilma

Halloween is not a "grown" tradition here in Germany, but has only been really picked up maybe 10 or 15 years ago by merchants to promote their business, and therefore, I am not participating in any of it, but looking at your cute decoration almost makes me wish it were different over here!

Hello Dorothy,
Thank you for visiting and following Red Rose Alley. I see you are ready for Fall with all your lovely decorations. The cake toppers are sweet. Fall is my favorite season, and while I was browsing, I noticed so many cute ideas on here. I read that you have four sons?.... how blessed you are! My son is so special to me. It's nice to meet new friends. Have a wonderful week, and I hope you visit again soon.
