ARE YOU ready to be spooked, wicked and inspired...ON DAY 1 of our Wicked Blog hop?



This is on our front door...  put it up yesterday...
Halloween has always been a very special day for my
DH and I... We met on Halloween and 10 years later
after numerous proposals...we married on Halloween...
Many would be very surprised at that...
It has been shared by many they thought we would marry on Valentines
day or Thanksgiving, very special days for us too...

HOWEVER the story is... Halloween is our DAY! 

The day we were married it was the warmest Halloween
on record, on our front door my dear friends
 found this groom and his bride...
We married in our home...
Every year since, it adorns our front door...

 Many of our neighbours have remarked
they think we are pretty wicked in a nice way...

I like to think we are still  WICKED IN LOVE!

Now who of thought we would begin WICKED
with a love story....? :)

WELL here we are ...
Wicked WENDYhas been waiting for this
day for months..let's not keep her waiting any longer...
She is our cheerleader in residence...
She has been responsible for gathering you all 
and keeping you inspired and organized...

The whole schedule can be found on our side bar
it will link you to Wendy's blog....you have got 
to read all she has up there in preparation of WICKED...




LOOOK who is up on very first day of our 
Wicked Blog HOP.
If you are new to us welcome...
if you are known to us...welcome...
I think you are all in for a wicked time...


Monday, October 22nd




























This was a difficult day to choose...there were
so many wonderful projects..but what stood out are the
following..

our top 2 




This one almost looked like a painting...well it is in fact...using hues of oranges
and golds look at the placement of these amazing strips of fabric...
and by golly a gorgeous pumpkin to boot...



and take a peak at the detail here.. her fabric choices were perfect..the stones,
the trees, a lovely block indeed...she made others that were equally 
impressive...YES my dear you got Wicked even in your country ...wink..



and most honourable mention for outstanding project...



And really what would be Wicked without some of this family....
Don't you just love the pink border and the black...lovely quilted 
to boot...oh yes indeed wicked...any room at that table...?


Link here to see all 46 PINS already today...our first day!
