By now you may know that I love decor with a personal touch. Especially for Halloween. With Macy staying overnight at Grandma and Grandpa's, all I needed this morning was a photo of relatives, my Mac, and an ice cold Diet Coke with Lime... heee heee heeee.....
I was inspired by Jane's spooky vintage cabinet card. BUT, since the only item I had to work with was the pant hanger that I got free at a garage sale a few weeks ago... I had to improvise.
This is what it really looks like with out the PicMonkey Macabre Tarnish and darkened edges. Seated is my great-grandmother Mary Emma, and behind her, (which is where you'll see I got my love of BIG HAIR) are my great aunts Eva, Emma, Carrie and Sophronia. I found some lovely Salem style millinery on the web and gave them a little Halloween twist. They lived in Oak Gulch, South Dakota in the early 1890's before moving to Wisconsin -- thus the inspiration for the title.
I was hoping to find a vintage 5x7 mat in my stash to spook up but when I didn't have that I came up with my own idea. I used on hand digital paper and elements, printed them on matte photo paper and covered a plain 5x7 mat. Voila. My newest Halloween decor.

We are just getting started with our Halloween decorating and must be ready for Macy's annual party on Friday. Now where's my magic wand when I need it?
Thanks for visiting!
