Ghastlie Friday Fright Night

Well, it's my time to reveal to you the lurgy that has plagued so many of us with this Ghastlie flu ....

I'm afraid I just couldn't resist them when I saw them...

and had to order just a little to satisfy my Ghastlie desire ...


I needed a sewing machine cover ...


My Berni needs to be tucked up overnight  ...



I hope it's not too frightened! 

It's been half term here and my Ghastlie plans have been scuppered, this Ghastlie flu has sent my mojo into hiding ...  still, there's still plenty more Ghastlie inspiration to be seen ...

Make sure you check out all my Sista's who are blogging their own Ghastlie stories today :

ME

And a full list of all my Ghastlie Sista's can be found here!

Make sure you leave a comment, (just the one comment per person, and make sure I can contact you either through your blogger profile or by e-mail)  there are some great prizes and a name is selected from each blog and sent to Madame Ghastlie who will pick a Grand prize winner each day.  Make sure you visit all the blogs and leave comments for maximum chances to win! 

I'll be back tomorrow (evening, cos I've escaped the Diva) to announce the Grand Prize winner :)

Here's to a frightful weekend!
