Halloween Re-Ment

My new hobby- Re-ment- very fun to display in dioramas and collect. I have joined a fun Flickr group- Rement addicts. I have enjoyed putting together my first few photos. I will be blogging more about this, as well as some of my vintage toy collections this fall/winter holiday season. Toys are such a fun part of the holidays- and I really enjoy them. Here is a halloween Re-ment dispaly- the Halloween cake in the center is Re-ment, the spooky figures on the sides are part of a vinyl toy collection by Nathan Jurevicius called Treedweller & Ghostsquid.

My Halloween Home

Halloween was fun this year. We had a nice relaxing evening passing out treats to all the cute costumed kids, watching some of our fave Halloween specials, and enjoying our traditional Halloween appetizer buffet. I have taken a bunch of pictures of our fun Halloween decor, as well as our yummy appetizers. Our appetizers this year were- Green Bean crisp's with ranch dip ( a new family fave from Safeway), classic l'il smokey wraps w/ mustard, pizza rolls, buffalo chicken sticks w/ blue cheese dip, sweet & sour meatballs, and for dessert Orange Ooze (cream cheese filled) chocolate cupcakes. To drink, I made mulled hot cider in my crock pot, served with caramel syrup & whipped cream, and had everything out for Cherry & Raspberry Italian Sodas. Everything was tasty- and was nice to snack on through out the evening. Halloween 2010 was great and was the perfect kick off to the holiday season.
