My Refrigerator

This is my refrigerator (notice the Frigidaire in the upper left corner).  These are foam stickers I got from Michael's about three years ago.  I put them on and my husband wanted to know if I planned to take them down after Halloween.  Why would I take them down?  And that explains the three years later.  :)

Olia Pishchanska

This is one of my favorite images, made by Olia Pishchanska.  Check out more of her work here.

I do love me some Meatyard

I think this one is my favorite.

Love the vacant eyes...

How freaky is this peeling paint?

This one is nightmare-worthy.
Technically, I don't know if ALL of these are the work of Ralph Eugene Meatyard.  Some I know are definitely, but others I can't guarantee, so if anyone knows that they are the work of someone else, please let me know.  Basically, I was Googling him for weird images to print for last year's Halloween party and these are some that I downloaded.
Anyway, I absolutely love this man's work.  I just find his images to be captivating.  I plan on doing an homage to him this fall.  He's so inspirational to me!
You can look into him further here.
Oh, and I'd like to point out that he was from Normal, Illinois.  How fabulous is it that his work is so non-normal?  And "Meatyard"?  That name rocks.
Many other people have been inspired by his work as well.  Here's one I also love:

Weird stuff I've found on the internet...

Just a few weird photos I've found perusing the internet.  Sorry I have no one attribute them to.

Last year's decorations...

Catching up on posts...

After last Halloween's party, for SO many reasons, I just didn't get around to posting any photos or blogging about the party.  However, I'm in revved-up Halloween mode so I'm going to try to play a little catch-up now.  These photos are of the cake I had a friend make.  Isn't it cool?  I also had two dozen cupcakes, and then a guest brought a Cold Stone Creamery cake, so this one didn't even get cut two days later.  Not that I'm complaining; I LIVE for cake with buttercream icing!
