Even if I haven’t exactly been ‘living it large’ here at Nicole’s House as of late; I’ve certainly been having some ‘fun’ even though I have been busy with moving furniture and shifting plant pots while packing away the toys and putting the cherished family photographs into temporary storage.
And the reason for this interior upheaval?
As today is All Hallows Eve and I’ve long wanted to host a spooky soirée here at Nicole’s House; I thought it would be a great idea to ‘brighten’ up the place with terracotta pots of gnarled tree branches, lashings of cobwebs, an colony of spiders, bats and other fantasy folk, an abundance of peevish pumpkins and with enough candy and cake in which to sink a ship, 12th scale or otherwise!
As Nicole was known throughout her life as a devoted and loving mother who loved nothing more than to decorate her home for a party – I like to think that I’ve managed to capture just a ‘little’ of her creative spirit this All Hallows Eve.
Now, where did I put my plate of cake?
