Two More Days!!

Halloween excitement is building here, and while part of me can't wait for the big day, another part of me doesn't want it to end.... Much like Christmas, it's the whole season I enjoy, and the anticipation is as much fun as the main event. I'm off to the market this afternoon to pick up candy (LOTS of candy, hehe!) We typically get anywhere from 100 to 200 kids through our neighborhood, and I like to have enough for a couple of pieces each, and always let the little ones help themselves. I'm also big on what we used to call "the good candy"; snickers bars, m&ms, reeses peanut butter cups and so on. Was anyone else disappointed as a kid when someone would hand you a piece of gum or some tiny generic candy? I remember it as if it were yesterday.....nevermind that all "the good candy" went straight to my hips, where it remains to this day. ;)

Apologies for not having anything listed on eBay at the moment, but I'm dividing my time between listings and commissions this week (new work is coming SOON, I promise!) My last Halloween chair of the year is still alone over at Etsy, so I hope to have new listings there soon as well...

Oh! And I'll also have a new playlist after Halloween (Christmas and Solstice music -yay!!) so if you like the autumn stuff, give a listen while you can. ;)

That's about it for today...The EHAG giveaway is still in full swing (see the previous post) so remember drop by there too, if you haven't already!

Happy Haunting!!

I can't wait either. We have a new six-foot tall Dracula standing in our dining room awaiting Halloween night. The pumpkins, tombstones and Gargoyle inflatable are already in the front yard. The music will be playing and the fog from a rental machine will again make our yard "the neatest" as all the little goblins say. This year I'm getting in on the fun by dressing as a witch to give out candy. Love the holidays!!!

I agree the excitement is building, especially since we have our grandson here to share Halloween with this year. Save some candy for me Carolee!
