The Halloween Giveaway Straight from Salem


Ok...this is a tough one. I want to keep it!!! But I am giving it away in the spirit of Halloween....a Halloween sacrifice if you will. I bought this in Salem on my recent trip. This is a very well made apron and witch hat. The apron comes with it's own towel which is attached to the apron with a button. I have included a Salem dish towel.


You can use this all year long. The daughter is not included in the giveaway at this time. However, that could change at any moment.



And to complete the outfit, I am also including this pair of vintage looking earrings. So, to enter the giveaway, join as a follower. If you are already a follower, mention the giveaway on your blog or add the button on your sidebar. Also, leave a comment naming the scariest movie you have ever seen. Mine is "Don't Look Now". I will draw the winner using a random number draw on Wednesday morning at 9:00am. Good Luck!


The winner of the Fall trip basket is: The Frog Queen

Congrats and leave a comment telling me how to contact you!
It was really fun hearing about your favorite small towns and now I have a list of new places to visit.


I thought you might enjoy seeing the view from my kitchen window.

Also, if you are interested in a killer salsa recipe, check the next post.

The Traveler said...

it is so sweet of you to be giving this away. I popped the button up on my page :http://lostinastralspace.blogspot.com/

My scariest movie was Dead Silence. I really really don't like dolls! possessed dolls = nightmares for me!

pj said...

Sorry no blog but I find yours so fun! I hope I ccan enter the contest. The scariest movie I have ever seen is Exorcist. I hated it and had nightmares forever. Will never see it again. Thanks for such a fun giveaway. pj

Autumnforest said...

Can I live in your kitchen? (sigh). I'll mention your giveaway on my blog.

magikalseasons said...

Congrats to Frog Queen! I'd have to say what still scares me is Nosferatu. I slept with the covers pulled over my neck for a long time after first seeing it. For a movie made in 1922 it is still a scary classic. I don't remember seeing Dead Silence I'll have to look for that one. :)

Pricilla said...

Yay to the frog queen!

Bummer to me!

Scariest movie: oooh, I am not much of a movie watcher and with my brain issues....hmmmm, Jaws? It's all I can think of right now.

I will figure out how to get your button up on my blog but I am a computer bobo. I need techs like you have....

Pricilla said...

YeeHaaa! I did it! It's up on Pricilla's blog!

PhoenixWitch said...

I am already a follower! I can't remember the name of scariest movie that I ever saw but I remember I was around 10 and it was about a scarecrow that came to life and murdered people. My cousin and I watched it and were so freaked out that when it was over we watched "The Muppet Christmas Carol" just to try and forget about that scarecrow!

Suzie said...

A big congratulations to the Frog Queen! I'm sure that she's doing a Happy Dance about now!

And I love your kitchen, and your view! I'm properly envious! lol

As for scary movies, I've never been a big fan. I'm too easily scared I guess, and it isn't fun for me. Each time I've thought, "It's only a movie, I'm a big girl now", I've had nightmares for weeks. I think that the scariest at the time, was Psycho.

I've put your drawing button on my sidebar and am going to link you in my blog!

The trip was wonderful, beyond words, but it is good to have you home again!

Hugs!

October blessing!

TMCPhoto said...

I don't really watch a lot of scary movies but my Husband and I both thought Titanic was pretty scary; all those peoplesicles bobbing up and down in the water.

I did watch Room 1409 the other day and thought it had a few shriek worthy moments

Divaeva said...

oooo - I almost forgot - my scariest movie is...*laughs* that is indeed a tough one because (as my friends say) I am warped - I love having the crap scared out of me...so much so that it's tough to do it! I like horror that could possibly happen...Devils Rejects with seriously sick and twisted people! Or something like that...

Jo said...

The Frog Queen is on a roll! She won a book on my blog!

Scariest movie...? The original Amityville Horror.

Mother's Moon's Message said...

goodness you are too sweet to your followers... scariest movie? um... For me it was when I was a young kid and first saw Halloween... scared me to death... will post your button on my sidebar to let others know about this great giveaway...And Frog Queen way to go girl... enjoy your prize

Marie S said...

Congratulations Frog Queen!
I love the apron and hat!

favorite movie (mini series)-harper's island

D.Suplicki said...

What a beautiful giveaway! The view from your kitchen window is gorgeous!!

The scariest movie I've ever seen is the Hills Have Eyes. The original one was so very creepy and the new one was quite gross and disturbing, so I can't pick which one was scarier for me.

Wendy the (Very) Good Witch said...

This is an awesome giva away! And as I was watching our video from our trip the other night, I even commented when we were filming the store with these great pieces in Salem. I told my husband that I was mad at myself for not buy one while I was there. I say it every year. Next year...I will own one of these dang it. LOVE that store!

Have a great weekend!

clairedulalune said...

Oh, I love the apron and hat! I will put your button on my blog! Your view is lovely!

Birgit said...

Hi there,

Oh wow -- that apron and witch hat and those earrings... Awesome! Thanks for this great chance. :)

My favorite scary movie? Now that's a tough choice... I found all three "Scream" movies pretty scary, but the movie "Silent Hill" based on the horror game series is even scarier.

Happy Halloween,
Birgit

Laura said...

What a great giveaway! I can see why you'd want to keep it. :-)

Congrats to the Frog Queen on the fall giveaway win.
Scariest movie to me is a three way tie for me:
Event Horizon, The Grudge and The Ring. All three scared me so bad I couldn't sleep for days after watching them. :-)

Oh and I blogged about your giveaway...

Hi Jaz....Ive been keeping up...Girl your busy busy busy. I posted a button to my blog for ya...

Scariest movie..... "The Shining"....I was 9 and my Dad was watching it on TV and I remember sneaking down the stairs. Getting right up behind his recliner and peaking around from the back to watch. It got the part with the lil girls and I stared got so freaked out by the music, eerie lil girls, and the whole way it was filmed...Up the stairs I went..Had nightmares for a week. And I was 9....but that movie freaked out my imagination to the point I never watched that movie again(except for that small clip) till I was 40 years old which was almost 2 years ago. I am a scorpio born the week of Halloween Nov 4th the end of the festivals. I feel vibes, instincts and things around me. I follow my gut all the time. Thats my scariest story, movie and nightmare...and the movie still freaks me out.

xoxoxo Sonia

Judith said...

I mentioned and posted about your give away, and as for the movie.... gotta say Night of the living dead, the first one. Ohhhhh, I don't think I ever got past them finding the eyeball on the stairs. giggle

~*~Aria~*~ said...

That apron is *WICKED*, I absolutely love it. It's perfect for a kitchen witch*crosses fingers* I made a post about it at my blog :3

I actually avoid scary movies, they tend to do weird things to me! The Child's Play movies always left me edgy though.

Sherry Byrum said...

The Captain said...

You have me so inspired to visit Salem, we've never been. Your blog is great.

The one movie that really messed with my head was the The Exorcist. When I was a kid I would plug my ears with my thumbs and cover my eyes with my fingers whenever the commercial came on. I didn't see it until they re released it a few years back, and it freaked me out. I just gave myself goosebumps thinking about it!

I'm trying to win your giveaway for my wife, she would love it. She's signing up for info about Salem on her computer as I type this.

I put your button on my blog

Touchatou said...

I could take the daughter too, if you'd like ! ;)

I tried the button but could not make it work...

Those earings are absolutely gorgoeus, dear !

Blyn said...

What a cute givaway! The scariest movie I have ever seen was "Phantasm" I don't know if it is still scary but I laid in the floorboard at a drive in with my ears plugged while my husband about ripped out the steering wheel...pretty scary at the time...but sometimes old movies aren't what you remember.

mrsb said...

The scariest movie I ever saw (at the time) was Nightmare on Elm Street! All the other movies, you could avoid the bad thing - don't go in the basement, don't swim where there are sharks, don't go to Camp Crystal Lake. But sooner or later, you HAVE to go to sleep!

I am a follower and I'll be pointing people this way in a few minutes!

The Lazy Peacock said...

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

What a fabulous giveaway and I love your view from the kitchen!

The scariest for me was Poltergeist - I still get freaked out by the clowns...

Thanks for entering me in your great drawing..

CelticDragonfly said...

im a follower and the scariest movie ever for me is killer clowns from outerspace..if you are scared of the clown from it the ones from this movie will give you nitemares ...im blogging this now and posting the button ..will post link when done

Crafty's Cuppa Coffee said...

Oh WOW! Talk about a divine apron. And the earrings are pretty spectacular too. (But YOU gotta keep the daughter. I have enough trouble with my own!LOL!)

As for the scariest movie- I was pretty freaked out after I watched the Saw & Cube movies. Twisted stuff for certain!.

Your trip looked amazing, and your home is beautiful. Thanks 4 the giveaway.

Already following you :) here is the giveaway posted in my blog htpp://thriftjunk.blogspot.com/2009/10/salem-giveaway-from-octoberfarm.html
scariest movie i know is killer klowns from outerspace ...it will make you not want cotton candy (shudders)

motheralice said...

Congrats to the Frog Queen!

I would love to be entered for this one too, I already follow. Blogged about it, now just need to sort out the button.

My scariest movie would be 'An American Werewolf in London'. My aunt let me watch it when I was about 9, and I didn't get much except the guy was freaking out and deforming.

That or Children of the Corn. That movie is just freaky.

Sabrina@goddessaday.com said...

I'm following, and I posted about this fantastic contest. Scariest movie? Does a miniseries count? Stephen King's The Stand really freaked me out, especially the scenes at the beginning with all the people wiped out by the plague.

Marie Antionette said...

A beautiful view, that is some beautiful things offered and congrats to Frog Queen.
This is a lovely blog.
XXOO Marie Antionette

motheralice said...

Ok. I'm apparently button stupid. If it's not compleatly obvious, I can't work it.

Or, it's too late in the evening and I've had too much wine. *chuckles*

Anyway, I blogged about it.
Cheers.

Chicken Herder from Westville said...

The scariest movie I have ever seen is *The Last House on the Left*. It was in the 70's at the drive in, I am 53 years old and have had nightmares ever since! Still! It was that disturbing!

Beautiful apron! I would love to win!

Aewynne Redwolf said...

I Have been a follower for some time. The scariest movie i've ever seen was Ju-on, the Japanese version of the grudge. If you have never seen a japanese horror flick- I suggest you do, they are much more twisted than we are! A tale of two sisters was terrifying as well!

Crafty's Cuppa Coffee said...

Hello Again! I blgged about the giveaway here:

ELLIE said...

what a great giveaway - i am a follower of your blog - and the scariest movie is a tie between halloween and exorcist - both aged me - will never even see them again - (shivers hitting spine as I type)!

Magickal Enchantments said...

Wow, great apron and I loved the comment about your daughter! I have two girls myself, one being 16 so I understand...:)
I tweeted about your blog and am now a follower.
The scariest movie is....
Nightmare on Elm St. due to the creepy jump rope song.."one two Freddy's coming for you, three four, better lock your door"
aaagggg, I scared myself, lol.

http://zenwitchmommy.blogspot.com/2009/10/october-25-pumpkiny-goodness.html

Scariest movie? The problem is, I'm a scaredy cat and avoid horror movies at all costs! But I'd have to say that "Scream" got me because it wasn't about the undead or the dream realm... It was about a real human being as a serial killer. :::shudder:::

peppylady (Dora) said...

Please put my name in the hat for your drawing and I'll have it post later on blog.

Coffee is on.

Cats and Witches said...

I'm a regular follower and love your pictures from the most recent trip....especially Salem, one of my favorite places. The scariest movie would be the 1950's version of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers..when I saw it in the 50's. I still remember how scared I was after.

Spyrit Dancer said...

Hi I'm following your blog, what a cool giveaway! And the view out your window is awesome. I live in the desert of NV, and I really miss fall colors. We get some yellows here, but no bright reds like we got in MI where I grew up. :) I've also always wanted to go to Salem, it would be great to have a little piece of it.

Nydia said...

Of course I had to join the fun! Such a cool apron with etra gifts, awesome! :o)

The scariest movie Ive ever seen was, no doubt, The Exorcist". I'l never ever watch this movie again in my life! Brr...!

As I'm already a follower, I just added your giveaway button to my right sidebar. Fingers and toes crossed!

Thanks for this generous giveaway!

Kisses from Nydia & Lucas.

Rose Pressey said...

I just became a follower. I love the apron and hat. And the earrings are so cute.

Rose Pressey said...

I just saw the movie Paranormal Activity. It was scary.

Kath said...

Great giveaway Diva Eva! Since I live in Salem this makes me very proud. My favorite part of Halloween is people watching and strolling through downtown Salem - it's a beautiful old city, just made for this time of year! Love ya!

Carapace said...

Oh, yes, I'm following! Your blog is fun!

The scariest movie..Pan's Labyrinth. It's got your choice of nightmares! But for me the Pale Man was the worst of the lot. Gorgeous, deeply moving film. All kinds of mythical power. And then the Pale Man shows up, and I lose my sanity and weep like a child. Those *hands*....

Leathra said...

Hello! I discovered your blog thanks to Goddess A Day making a post about this contest on her blog. And I'm so glad she did! I've been having fun exploring around here. Snagging your button, hope you don't mind. ^_^ Oh, and I have also become a follower. Look forward to hearing more!

The scariest movie I have ever watched...well i avoid scary movies for just that reason. I scare too easily. >.< I've heard that Paranormal Activity, in the theaters now, is absolutely terrifying. I would watch it with my boyfriend, but he refuses to because HE would be too scared. Umm...I saw exorcist for the first time last year on television, so it was cut. I was more apt to yell at the stupidity of the priest than anything. I saw Poltergeist on tv the year before, and that was rather scary...but while i lived under my parent's roof my viewing experience was limited to PG ratings and Disney. Oh, I've got it! Shaun of the Dead. Laugh at me if you like, but I'm personally terrified of zombies and a parody was the closest I could get--and even that made me scream bloody murder!

karisma said...

Hi, we popped over from Wendy's place..she described your blog as "wicked pissah", how could we resist? LOL! What a great outfit, love the earrings! Funny we were just choosing an outfit to make and ds1 wants to make a hat just like that for Halloween.

I really love your background leaves, just gorgeous and the kids are in love with your scarecrow! He is the cutest scarecrow we have ever seen. The kids reckon he won't scare the crows away though! He is too adorable! LOL

We also had a giggle at you not giving away the daughter "yet". ds1 rolled his eyes. Anyway we shall be following you from now on! Love your sense of humour!

Kelli Bear Haven said...

I really love your blog and you are such a generous person. It would be hard for me to giveaway such a wonderful present like that too. I am now a follower and I am going to put you on my Favorite Halloween Blog list on my blog. I hope you have a great Halloween.

Kelli Bear Haven said...

If you get a repeat post I am sorry, I think it did not go through. I just wanted to tell you that I really love your blog.. I am now a follower and I am also going to put your blog on my favorite Halloween blog list too. You are such a generous person and it would be hard to giveaway such a wonderful give as the witch's hat, apron, and ear rings.

Have a great Halloween!!

Caroline said...

Scariest movie I can remember right off would be when Nightmare on Elm Street first came out, now it's kind of dumb!
Great giveaway too-please enter me and thanks!
:)

Marjorie said...

Hello Jaz, I would love to be in your giveaway. And I know I've said it before but your photography is great! I started watching scary movies at about age 6 so I'm pretty hard to scare, but I saw the Exorcist in college and actually got so freaked out that had to leave the theatre, so that's my #1 pick. The Ring is pretty creepy too.

Yart said...

It use to be Phantasm but it has been replaced with any of the new zombie movies.... They aren't suppose to move that fast... they are suppose to be really slow so you can out run them... LOL!

Sadie said...

The scariest movie I have seen to date is "The Connecticut Haunting" that movie is just plain creepy.

Illustrated Ink said...

What wonderful goodies! I just recently visited Salem, and I loved it. I'm already a follower and I posted your button on my blog! ;)
http://illustratedink.blogspot.com/

"The Ring" scared the crap out of me. I kept looking in my backseat on the drive home after the movie. Little girl + Japanese horror = me terrified!

J.Zeigler said...

I'm following your blog and I posted about your giveaway!!

My scariest movie is The Leprechaun! My parents and older brother were watching it in the living watching it and I was in the bedroom since they wouldn't let me watch it. Well, I kept sneaking in to ask my mom *important* questions so that I could see some of it. Later, I was in my room and my brother creeped up behind me. "All I want's me gold!" he wispered. Scared the crap out of me!! I've never wanted to see that movie again!!!
