Saturday, I went to Piddlestixs in Lafayette, NJ owned by Lisa Kettell.  This was soooo much fun and I went with my girlfriend, Geralyn from Greetings from Geralyn in celebration of our birthdays.   I will give you a tour of Piddlestixs:

Love these doll faces that Lisa hand paints.  Ok, on to the party!  We started the party creating our own witches hats:

IMG_1095 IMG_1068 I would love to share with you the wonderful Adam’s Family dinner we had but my battery in my camera had die by now… I’m sure you’re glad it did…lol  sorry this is so long!  But, I had such a great time and I’ll leave you with the goodie bags Lisa and Diana where so generous to give us. 

IMG_1047 Pink pumpkins, how cool where they!  We  made our way through historic Lafayette listing to tales of an eerie past, walking with our hats and lanterns to the home of David Messineo, Publisher/Executive Editor of Sensations Magazine and The Six Centuries Club, who recently received a 2009 New Jersey State Jefferson Award for Public Service.  He finish the night with tales of a dark history filled with stories of Salem and several poems written by David.
