I have been without my computer for 4 days, took it in for an update and I am just figuring everything out now but here is my Halloween post.

No corner was spared this Halloween.  The farmhouse was decked out in spooky style with some kid friendly pieces added for the little Halloween Party we had for the grand babies and their little second cousins.  My newest pieces this season are the pumpkin snow globe with the lovely raven inside seen on the lit display and the adorable White Witch.  When we bought her and got her home I looked at her tag and was surprised to see her name was Bella which is what the babies call me , it was meant to be.

I made some cute Halloween pillows from tea towels and decided to keep the Halloween Paintings from my Etsy Shop.  The looked so good on the shutter display we made for the Art Show that now they will be a permanent Halloween fixture in the farmhouse.

Everyone gets a mask even the lamps and my red pig.  The vintage pumpkin and cat are my favourites I cannot find things like that anymore.  I painted the Midnight. Moonlight and Magic sign, I adore it and would leave it out all year.

The Party was a great success.  I had lots of crafts for the kids , I did learn a valuable lesson, never use glitter with 2 to 5 year olds.  I mad bat and witch hat cookies and spooky cupcakes.  I found these adorable Patience Brewster paper plates and lots of goodies from the Dollar Store.  It was a really fun day seeing the kids in their costumes enjoying themselves.  My sweet little granddaughter was Posie from Little Charmers, my great niece was Omelette from PJ Mask and my grandson and great nephew were Catboy.  It was a blast.

I am off now to see the kids in Toronto for Halloween.  Love it.  When we come home I will have my Samhain Blessing.  I wish you all a safe and Spookily amazing Halloween and to my fellow Wiccans Blessed Samhain.

Yes, I know, I have not posted in quite a while, very busy.  We are doing some renovations on the house and getting ready for winter but I just cannot miss my favourite time of the year post.....Halloween!

I have always been fascinated with Halloween.  When I was 10 years old and my father was looking for a house, he found a really reasonable one, the only problem was it was an old groundskeepers house in a graveyard.  I was thrilled, oh how cool was that.  I would have loved to walk amongst the tombstones day or night hoping to see a friendly spirit or two.  Well, dad and I were the only ones who wanted to live amongst the dear departed so it did not happen.

As you all know, I go all out for Halloween.  I am almost finished decorating.  I am having a little Halloween Party for our grandbabies and their cousins on Saturday the 29th. .  I have unspooked a bit and made the kitchen "kid friendly".  My little granddaughter is as macabre as her Bella, but my grandson gets spooked.

Now these dinner parties are the parties of my dreams ( nightmares?).  I would love to be invited to any of these.

I will post some photos later of the farmhouse.   I just adore these witches and the chairs with the pumpkins are divine, I would have those hung all year.

What fabulous wreaths!  I love them all but those ravens just are my style completely.

I must try this.  Every witch could use a new pair of shoes and would these ever look great on Hallows Eve as I stir the cauldron.

Now this is Halloween Decor to the max.  What an amazing set up.

I must leave my hats and brooms out all year.  This looks fab.  Well, whatever you are doing to get ready for the big night I hope it is Spookily Spectacular!
