Halloween fun !!

Honestly, I’m not a fan of Halloween “trick or treat,” etc.  But it is fun to dress up “silly” once or twice a year. Remember when I dressed up in a lion costume??

For many years, I wore a “generic Halloween costume” (as a witch). This year I’m adding a mink shoulder wrap to the ensemble. The beautiful mink wrap was in a pillowcase that ended up at my tables prior to the CARE garage sale. With an eye for value (because I’m a thrift shop “junkie”) I “rescued” the adorable little critters because “too valuable” for our twenty-five cent, fifty cent, and one dollar bargain tables!! (I think our most expensive item was a new large crock pot priced at $20.00. I believe the same item sells for about $60.00.)

I’ve been doing research, on the Internet, and have a treasure trove of valuable information. “Minky” will eventually find a new home and the money will be added to the proceeds from the CARE garage sale. This article was especially helpful –and interesting reading!! Here’s a professional view of a similar mink wrap.

Burr, it's coldPostscript, 8:20 PM: Changed my mind. The fur just didn’t belong with this outfit!! (There was major conflict with the long gray hair!!) ~~ I came home before the festivities ended. I was (am) cold!!
