October 2012 - Victoria Elizabeth Barnes

Dear Studio 54 – your legend pales in my shadow.

I had planned to do at least twenty blog posts leading up to Halloween.
Maybe twenty-five, if I could find the time– I have that much to say about it.

That didn’t work out at all, but at least I can show you my Halloween porch.

Decorating our Victorian porch for Halloween… I used mason jars with tea lights and made a DISCO chandelier.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

You know what’s rare? When you inadvertently avoid making an ass of yourself.

I love Halloween like other people love Valentine’s Day.  Or their Birthday.  Or any day when people give you gifts and profess undying love.

I love Halloween because you get to wear costumes.  Fake hair.  Fake eyelashes.  Fake glasses.  Fake teeth.  Sparkles, tulle, cowboy hats, crowns, hoop skirts, eye-patches, alien heads… whatever.

So when I found out there was a WordPress blogging camp in Philadelphia?  AND it was Halloween themed?   I absolutely planned to wear a costume.
Because costumes are awesome.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
