Pink-a-Boo! Let the Magic Begin!


Happy October 1st!

As some of you may know, I operate a Halloween boutique called "Black Crow Boutique." This year we are putting operations on hold so that we can spend lots of quality family time with Chilly. I still have loads of spooktacular ideas for you, and will
be sharing them throughout the month!

Chilly has finally returned to work. (Thank Heavens...oops! I mean, Hooray!) I drive him as it will be a few more months before he can manage that on his own. The important thing is that he is back in the office and feeling productive. He is using a cane to help him get around, but overall seems to be doing much better. I hope that now I can get back to blogstalking! I have missed visiting all of you!! I honestly can't believe it's already October 1! It seems like Chilly just came home from the hospital!

Recently, Irish Dancer Girl spotted this little goody at Target. She completely went bonkers and decided her Halloween was going to be a pink one!


I'm always open to creative ideas, so off we went in search of pink Halloween goodies. Here's a bit of what we found....


A pink skelly....

(these make terrific vampire fangs! www.orientialtrading.com)

We even found some pink-a-ween treats for your bath!

(Chilly and I think these pink brain soaps are a riot! I know...we are twisted people considering he just had a stroke..We are buying them for our bathroom!)


Halloween isn't complete without a few ghouls and goblins!

Some wicked wearables....


I am also putting up Irish Dancer Girl's small white Christmas tree, adding black and pink polka dot bows, black crows, black cats and other assorted pink & black ornaments. We're going to paint a few craft pumpkins pink and glitter them up too!

(Don't worry...I'm still sticking with the traditional orange and black in the rest of the house! lol!)

And while we're on the subject of a pink October, don't forget to check your BOO-bies! It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Wishing you a delightful October!

xoxo




ps...Please email me if you want the info on any of these items:) I didn't have enough time to do all of the linky stuff...I'd be happy to link you up with the vendors!

My three year old has taken to Halloween and I am so super excited about it. (and then I thought about you and your store and your love for it too)

She's gonna be a witch and we bought her 3 Halloween plates and 2 shaky Halloween cups from Target and a lighted pumpkin. She's in heaven. :)

:satisfied sigh: just wanted to share. And I do love that witches hat!! I would look better than the one that came with her costume.

So glad Chilly is feeling better and getting up and around.

My girls would be completely in heaven for a pink sparkly Halloween.

Congrats on getting your Chilly back to work. We are still praying for him regularly.

First off, Thank God , Chilly is doing so much better!!

You are a girl after my own heart...pink is my favorite color, Halloween is my favorite holiday/time of the year. Last night I was decorating and telling my husband that I just can't put all my pink away that I need to blend it into my Halloween decor and your post is just giving me lots of great ideas!!!

I just launched my new site, we did it all over, stop by if you have time, we are doing a $50 giveaway

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
