Gnome Sweet Gnome

GNOME 6776

Tonight, Missy and I started putting together our HALLOWEEN COSTUMES...we tossed around a buncha costume ideas, but finally settled on being a pair of GARDEN GNOMES. Our first stop was Old Navy where we purchased black pants and blue tops. Afterwards, we headed over to Target to buy matching boots. We planned on buying matching WELLIES there, but they were totally sold out. Even the Payless Shoe Source next door were totally sold out of rain boots. All the recent rainstorms had caused a run on Wellingtons...soooooo, we ended up buying matching faux suede WOMEN'S DRESS BOOTS instead...turns out that I can fit into a women's size 11...

After Target, we headed over to Joann Fabrics. We bought a couple yards of RED FELT to make our hats, some BLACK ELASTIC to make wide belts, and YELLOW FUN FOAM to make our belt buckles...

At Target, I also picked up this PUMPKIN DECORATING KIT because the little wooden mallet that came with it kinda looked like a CORN COB PIPE...

Finally, we pulled out some white FUN FUR from our craft supplies that we are going to use to make beards...
