Happy Halloween

 Happy Halloween to everyone!!!  Now I have another whole year to wait for it to happen again.

 I got my Halloween bracelets out.

 The squirrels have not eaten my Indian corn yet.

 I bought lots of pumpkins.

 The wall in my garage...I"m still adding to it.

 Thank goodness the pool is covered.

 Autumn cushions on the chairs.

 A carpet of colors everywhere.

 More Halloween candy.  I've made hundreds of treat bags to pass out.

 Teddy is enjoying the crisp weather.

 A Halloween moon.

 Halloween shoes.

 Pumpkins on the roof.

 I've been making lots of Halloween food.  My kids love Halloween pizzas.

 Baked brain (baked brie).

Fall....I'm not ready for you to be over yet.

Halloween at My House

 I made this with a thrift store candelabra....1.95!

 There are touches of Halloween everywhere throughout my house. 

 Even in my cookware.

 Some Halloween signs.

 Hand carved figures.

 A human skull from my days in dentistry.

 Cookbooks and corkscrews.  Click on any pic to enlarge.

 Witch bookends holding up a first edition set of The Equinox by Aleister Crowley and a Victorian Era witch tambourine.

 I always have Halloween candy available.

 I used to read these to my kids when they were small.

 As opposed to this one....

 I found this at a thrift store a few years ago.  These two are really terrifying.

 A cauldron waiting to be filled with candy.

Are you ready for Halloween?

 Halloween is on Monday and it is a love/hate time for me.  I love it so much and I hate it when it's over.

 This year I have made it a point to enjoy every minute of Fall.

 I build a fire almost every evening and open all of my doors and windows.

 I've visited every local farm market and stocked up on pumpkins.

 Teddy is enjoying her pumpkin pack.

 The Blog Tech and his wife (tee hee...I so love having a married Blog Tech)  are going to a Halloween party and she is dressing up as a witch.  I told you she is the perfect DIL!  She is wearing a witch hat I made for her which reminded me that I made a lot of witch hats last year.  This is one of them.

 Here is another.

 I think this one went to Canada.

 Some of them had ravens on them.

 I customized them to match personalities.

 Click any pic for a closer look.
 Some had spiders.

 As usual, I got a bit carried away.  I must have made  a dozen of them.

 Even Teddy got a hat.

A 'good witch' hat!  Good thing we don't need too many of them.  BTW...The Blog Tech is dressing up as a woolly caterpillar.  I'll try to get pics.  I am making Halloween food today for them to take to the party and I'll show you what I made tomorrow.
