#throwbackthursday: Halloween Tree

Happy #tbt!  Who's excited for Halloween tomorrow? I AM!

I think this picture is circa the early 90's!  I'm the one in the middle dressed as a tree!  I distinctly remember making that tree costume: gathering real leaves to trace from the maple across the street, cutting them out of felt and sewing them onto an old turtleneck shirt. The stitches were not pretty, but they lasted all night! I even sewed felt leaves to my shoes as if some had fallen to the ground! In retrospect I should have totally made leaf gloves, too... but I made it all by myself! You know, in the days before store-bought costumes! :-)

Special shout-out to Mrs. L who found this picture and shared it with me earlier today!
