Monsters, mummies and friendship!
I have a friend, her name is Yvette. She is crazy, she is fiercely loyal and she makes my work days bearable because she is my office-mate. We have lots in common: we both laugh at the dumbest things, we enjoy performing various Broadway musical numbers (in character) and we share an affection for Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.
We are very different as well. While I enjoy the changing of the season and love the themes of Harvest and Thanksgiving, my good friend enjoys the morbid and the scariness that is Halloween. Because I love her and because she saw a terra cotta pot at the 99cent Store, I obliged her affections and painted her a little something to make her smile.
I'd like to introduce you to Frank...that's Frankenstein to those who don't know him. Take a pot, in this case it was a dollar, paint it, and you have a very affordable, totally adorable Halloween planter.
I couldn't stop there and since I had several small planters in the garage, I had an idea. Last year, I wrapped chocolate candy bars in white party streamers, added a few googly eyes and gave my friends mummy candy for Halloween. I figured, why not do the same to a small pot and make it a terrible two-some...Frankenstein and the Mummy! Both simple, but equally adorable and both entirely capable of bringing a smile to a friend who deserves it!
Happy Halloween Yvette!!!
