october 2004, my old garden, one of my cats (buddy) and the mantle.
october 2005 ~ soooo glad this pic doesn't come out too well! that's me in my old garden.
NOTE: i've actually been decorating for fall & halloween since 1995 BUT i have no pic's or anything from prior to 2004 (just a few scraps) since that ex(boyfriend) i've mentioned in a couple of the previous posts stole and/or threw out nearly everything i've ever owned in my entire life when i kicked his sorry butt to the curb in 05/04! (broke into the apt & the storage unit). but, i've made peace with all of that ~ i wanted to start over from scratch!
(though for every item he stole and/or threw away, may his head of fake hair fall off at the most public of moments (bald of a freakin' cue ball!) and may he have 1 year of "what goes around comes around" karma for every item and...)
