halloween door hang

My sister came to help me out this past week and brought a really nice door hang that she  made on her embroidery machine....

 Although the door hang is cute on it's own it was hard to see on my white front door, so I got to work adding a bit of color to let it stand out!

 I took a piece of orange foam and cut out a pumpkin shape and hot glued the embroidered hanging to it.. then added a few fall silk flowers.

 Went around the edges of the shape with my black sharpie.

 Amazing what a few silk flowers can do...

 Then I needed to add a bit more contrast,  the word "BOO" seemed appropriate.  Again I used my black sharpie and simply cut it out then hot glued to the pumpkin.

 A ghost is needed.. what is Halloween without a ghost! I used some scrap batting for this. 

 I could add a few more things but did not want it too busy.. besides this complex where I live never has trick or treat'ers come by... it's just for us to enjoy!

"Flight Night"

For all of you that sent me best wishes this past week, I wanted to add an update to this post...  I am doing great after the 11 days since my heart surgery.. feeling good and even happier to have had the bandage and stitches out yesterday!  I can itch it now!  And I can drive.. so it's off to do lunch with my really wonderful sister!
Thanks to everyone for your concern! 
I'm feeling great!

"Happy Fall"

Sandy, how wonderful that you are feeling better and can itch! I think of you every day and you're in my prayers. I absolutely love what you did to the cute Halloween decoration, it was lovely on its own, but the additions were just right!

How wonderful to have a sister--I am envious, but very happy for you, what a special relationship.
