Fast forward...lots of years.
Halloween has become our favorite holiday. We do a lot of decorating outside with a graveyard and ghosts but I have never done much inside. This morning I got this grand idea that I would decorate the inside of the house as a witches kitchen. I wanted to create specimen jars to sit on the opening between the kitchen and living room. My mind started going into overdrive, I had all sorts of ideas. Larry, Logan, and I went hunting for specimens and jars. We hit the D.I. for jars and bottles and the Dollar Store for specimens. I think we found a few good things. When we got home Logan and I were pretty excited to start playing with the combinations. He had fun adding food coloring to the jars and was pretty excited about the heart, brain, and cockroaches. Now that we have the specimen/jar combinations worked out all I have to do is finish off the bottles with creepy mesh and rope and come up with creative labels for the Eyeballs, Shrunken Unicorn Horns, Werewolf Fur, Dragons Blood, Mermaid Hair, Sand from Dead Man's Hill, Brain, Cockroaches, Crow Feathers, Face Parts, and a Rat. Here's a preview of my project...
