Nancy Drew Silhouette Pumpkin

Nancy Drew Sleuth member Mary G. created this spiffy Nancy Drew silhouette pumpkin for Halloween and we used it on the cover of our latest issue of The Sleuth. I just love it. I'm inspired to create some using faux white pumpkins for The Secret in the Old Attic Halloween Display this year which will mostly be black and white decor with a hint of orange here and there.

I'll be reusing this neat silhouette in the window--from a past year and featured in a past Blog column here.

My attic theme involves bringing out the spooky elements of the Old Attic book including making the front porch into the attic from the book, silhouettes in the windows, and treat sacks filled with candies and Fipp's skeleton from the book and bookmarks. Boys will get Hardy Boys bags with the Skull Mountain theme.

I'm also hosting a Nancy Drew Halloween costume party the night before for local Nancy Drew collectors using the same theme. Will post updates on the party and pictures after the party.
