I am feeling compelled to post a costume from my past for Halloween evening! There are way less trick or treaters in our neighborhood than I thought so here I am with candy and wine and cats. So I figured, let me post photos of my brother and I's first two Halloweens together. I was at first a pumpkin, him a cowboy. The next year we had two homemade costumes that my grandmother stitched for us: Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and  a Tyrannosaurus Rex! Kind of amazing, huh?
And here are photos from my attempt to dress up my brothers kitties for Halloween. The black cat, Kai, was supposed to be a bat for Halloween! But he was having none of that costume. I'd much rather cuddle with him than have him run away from me! 
Here is Bonsai, the girl kitty who is a cowgirl for Halloween. She is so very calm, cool, and collected so she allowed me to put her hat on, for a photo only. She posed, fussed, then asked to be paid for this modeling shoot.
The two kitties, who I have grown to adore as my own. I love that when I come home from work, they both stretch out on the floor waiting to be pet. I also adore that I found a new toy for them. I was completing a DIY fall decor piece that included twine and the both of them wanted to play with it! So instead, I found an old ball of yarn, humored them for a little, and left to find that they are able to play with each other with this yarn! It seems so classic. Halloween, a black cat, and a ball of yarn. What other cliches will I encounter tonight?
Here's a portrait of the black cat, Kai for everyone to enjoy tonight! Does this mean we're all cursed? Oops! 
Lastly, I created a Facebook page for Yelle Events. Not sure how many bloggers out there use Facebook as a way to track blog posts, but I know I used to before I had my own blog! Check it out + happy Halloween!
Salut, Yelle

  3. your costumes were so cute! i do have a FB for my bog/shop but i really never love using it. i guess i just don't have a connection to it? i feel like if i use it too much it's annoying but if i don't use it very often then it's weird when i do. i don't know?? but i also feel like you kinda sorta have to have it so i do. well, none of that probably made any sense! xo

  4. Love the kid costumes! I too went as Dorothy one year. My parents had a lot of fun using spray adhesive and a ton of red glitter on my shoes, haha. Your bro looks like a good older brother! Your cats are adorable. That black cat is definitely bad luck, but it's November 1st so I think we're safe from the curse ;)
