Happy Halloween!


In the past week in spite of packing and painting my new house and moving and working two jobs and reading and watching movies and going to a Solid Color Party where I dressed all in silver…I still miraculously (it was like I had Hermione Granger’s time-turning necklace!) found time to make a batch of 24 assorted Halloween cards to send and give to friends and family – and now to all of you, my readers and online friends and fellow blogging adventurers!

I hope your All-Hallows-Even is freakishly fantastic, that things go bump in the night for you, that your costumes trick the visiting spirits into leaving you at peace, and that as we venture into the dark half of the year there will be plenty of fun and festivity to brighten things up for you.

In proper Samhain tradition I’ll be taking a break from my frantic activity to have one last bonfire at my summer cabin before biding it and the summer farewell. 🙂


  1. You’re doing all that and still blogging? I’m in awe.

    • I’ll own up to some pre-scheduled posts…! 🙂 And I’m currently grabbing a moment on the computer while waiting for the oil to be changed in my car. Take it when you can!

  2. Have a lovely bonfire! We will be lighting lots of candles and thinking good thoughts.

    • Snow actually canceled my bonfire…! But the snow was kind of cool. And I ended up moving into my new house a night early because of it – almost finished painting my living room. Love your candle idea – I thank I’ll adopt the idea for next year.

  3. Happy Halloween, Sarah! We’re being totally low-key this year & just greeting the little trick or treaters over at my folks’ house, but it will still be fun. Enjoy that bonfire!

    • No bonfire in the end, the weather wasn’t cooperating… But I did give a bit of candy out to the few trick-or-treaters who ventured onto the dark porch of my new home. Next year I’ll go all-out. 🙂

  4. I love the cards–and especially how your photo of them looks like a quilt!

    • Thanks! I actually looked at them and thought, “Gosh that would make a fun quilt!” I saved my patterns – maybe it’ll be next autumn’s project. 🙂
