My decorating usually includes a faux cemetery scene in the living room, as you can see from the photo below of Phoebe playing her role as the "Graveyard Cat".
We also had a nice trickle of trick-or-treaters come to the door again this year and the kids all seemed pleased with the little treat bags I had prepared for them.
Yvonne of the Winter Moon blog celebrated Neil Gaiman's All Hallows Read (an initiative with the purpose of encouraging the giving of spooky books at Halloween) by generously gifting a number of her buddies here in Blogland with packages that not only contained a delightfully dark novel, but other charmingly macabre goodies. I was the lucky recipient of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, plus a cornucopia of bats, snakes, spiders, creepy chocolates, vintage horror movie postcards and Jessie Larson art cards.
Puddleduck Grange and Easel & Quill blogs sent me one of her beautiful, original paintings.
Thank you both so much lovely ladies! ❤
While we're still on the subject of Yvonne, she has just started selling some of her beautiful photography and artwork as prints and homewares on the Society6 website. She has some fabulous designs, like the ones below, in her Winter Moon shop there.
It seems that Blogland is bursting with excitement and activity at the moment because gorgeous friend Magaly Guerrero released her latest book, Blooming Howls. I have only recently come into possession of a hand-me-down iPad (from sister to parents to me), and Magaly's Blooming Howls was my first ever digital book purchase.
I hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween! And now it is time to brace ourselves for the onslaught of the Yuletide season.
I'll leave you with a cartoon of my beloved Addams Family by Charles "Chas" Addams.
