Closer It Comes

It's that time of year again. An October autumn. Here, the trees are almost finished their fabulous display of colors. Gazillions of leaves on the ground, flying through the air, fluttering along the streets.

Just a few days to go before the Big Night. Samhain/Halloween. Closer it comes, step by step.
Here's a few things from my Halloween collection to get this blog in the mood; the mood for howl-a-ween.








Today's newspaper is filled with listings for festivals, carnivals, trails of terror, haunted houses, pumpkin parties, diabolical cornfield mazes. The works. Scary, frolicky fun.

And it is time for the annual viewing of my favorite Halloween time movie.
Love this movie, the wonderful actresses who play three scary/nutty witches and the fun plot. This will perk up your "spirits" definitely.

Gotta love this time of year, dontcha?

Have fun preparing for creepy things crawling out of the woodwork. Got ghosts? Noticing funny bite marks on your neck? Are zombies reeking up the neighborhood? Don't worry. It's just Halloween.

So many adorable decorations! Love the Gathering of Ghosts. Too cute! What do the Kittens think of all the Decorations?
Have plans to watch my annual Movie Collection (Hocus Pocus, Practical Magic, and a couple Vincent Price films)next week - after I get done with some baking.
I hope you're feeling better! You've been in my thoughts of late! {{hugs}} ♥

I love your decorations; so cute! I don't really have movies I watch every Halloween but there is music I find appropriate and/or fun for this time of year.

Hope you're feeling better!

Love those candles and your decorations. I just love this time of year. Unfortunately, this year the holiday will fall on my late day at work, but I'll still have some time for some solitary celebrating.

Your decorations are beautiful! Love the candy corn candles!!! This is such a busy time of year, I have not been as frequent as I'd like to be.....

I've read that Halloween slowly is getting more popular over here so soon we too might see pumpkins and Halloween stuff around our homes :-)

But today it would blow away, it's storm winds outside and it snows heavily right now.

Have a great day!

Those Candycorn Candles are so cute - I need to find myself some of those for Next year! :)


Hocas Pocas is my FAVORITE Halloween movie. Is it sad that I've already watched it 5 times this month...oops! :) It doesn't get old though - really!

That is a great movie - used to watch it with my kids alot. Love your decorations, especially the black kitty on the chair. Ann

Hocus Pocus was the movie that motivated me to keep salt in my purse. I still do! I change it out every now and then - never sure how to tell if it's fresh or not. Would that matter? My favorite Halloween movie is Practical Magic, also, one of my favorite movies, but I would love any witchy movie that makes us look good.

O.K., I may be officially crazy. I kept staring on the candy corn trying to figure out how you got three of them to stand up so nicely... I've got to get out more. Nice candles.
