Re: Candy Cane Reindeer

A few of my friends came over to help me make candy cane reindeer for the children's choir that will be performing at our clubhouse on Dec. 10th.


Here are a few of the photos that I took...

Re: Styrofoam Cone and Coffee Filter Christmas Trees

Our ladies group will be making Christmas trees next Tuesday.  Here's an example of a tree that I made recently.

I used a 6 inch styrofoam cone and regular size coffee filters.  I cut the center out of each coffee filter and wrapped it around the cone all the way up.  At the top, I made a cone from the cut out center.  I glued a star to the top and placed pink bows and pearls all over the tree.

Here are some photos that I took of the tree.  The base of the tree is a candle holder that my grandfather made for me years ago.

Re: Happy Halloween


I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the mash, he did the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
He did the mash, it caught on in a flash
He did the mash, he did the monster mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

They did the mash, they did the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
They did the mash, it caught on in a flash
They did the mash, they did the monster mash

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolfman,
Dracula, and his son

The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, 'The Crypt-Kicker Five'

They played the mash, they played the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
They played the mash, it caught on in a flash
They played the mash, they played the monster mash

Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
Opened the lid and shook his fist and said
"Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist? "

It's now the mash, it's now the monster mash
The monster mash, it was graveyard smash
It's now the mash, it caught on in a flash
It's now the mash, it's now the monster mash

Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
And my Monster Mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you


The witch and the ghost were made from kits at the 99 cents store...

Re: Remembrance for Irene

Our dear friend Irene passed away a couple of weeks ago.

On October 12th we had an afternoon of remembrance for her.

Here are the gorgeous table decorations and photos of some of the delectable snacks
and desserts that were presented...

The tables were set with white tablecloths, lavender placemats, a colorful plate and lavendar napkin and fork.  In the center of each plate was a decorated lavender and white candy cup.
