Spiders Under Glass Table


Beaulah and her witchy friends
and I have cooked up 
more Halloween fun than ever this year
in the kitchen and around the house

and today she invited her spider
friends to join us.

Eek, they are everywhere!!
It must be that time of year
when spiders come into the house seeking warmth.

My icky spider plates come
from Home Goods a few years ago.
They really are creepy!

Truth is, I despise real spiders so
why are fake spiders kind of fun!

Maybe because I am not scared of those kinds
and I can even eat some of them.

We even are serving 
Spiders Under Glass
at our spider table.

These horrible spiders carry their
black eggs on their backs.
But their bodies are soft
and deliciously chocolatey.

Oooh, give me the shivers!!

And how about trying to eat
with these boney utensils?

These spooky green spidery 
napkins were made from a runner that
I cut apart and serged the edges
and each one has a different spider
ring as a napkin ring.

 They add a little glitz and glam
to the table.

This spider web piece of fabric
was the inspiration for our
creepy crawly spider table.  I just
purchased 3 yards and had it run from
floor to floor across the table.  It is a
beautiful cutwork piece that I found at
Joann Fabric.  It will be great another year
on the island or the mantel.

Black and green are the color scheme
so I chose my trusty bubble glasses
for the table.

Those spiders have been busy settling
in for the winter winding their web
around my candelabra 

and laying their
eggs in my creepy talon bowls.

They even laid more eggs in the
green glass candle holders.

I just hope spiders don't
come down into our hair
while we are eating!  

They are leaving imprints and
inviting their friends everywhere.

But - - at night is when they really like
to come out and play.

Just hoping that these are the only
spiders that invade my house!

Have a fun-filled Halloween 
this Friday Night.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
