Happy Halloween! Samhain Blessings!


Welcome, my pretties, to our haunted mansion! Bwahahaha!

While this fabulously decorated house is (unfortunately) just a photo from teh interwebz and not our real home, I can assure you that the following pumpkins were actually carved by my Rare One and me last Halloween to decorate our front steps.

I chose to carve a bubbling cauldron of witchy goodness . . .


. . . while my Rare One went for a celestial look featuring a lovely translucent Crone Moon with completely cut out stars!


Here's a shot of our pumpkins together. Alas, it's too dark to see our black rubber rats (Cardinal Ratzinger and Archbishop Fang) but I assure you they're there too.


Don't be scared by any rustling or yowling you may hear as you walk up our sidewalk . . .


. . . because our cat, Her Royal Highness, will protect you. Either that, or kill you and eat your eyeballs with her ghoulish friends. We'll see how it goes.

Welcome back, Debra! Your pumpkins are gorgeous. I don't think I'd have the skill to create magickal ones like those. My "girls" have told me they plan on flying on over on their own private broomsticks tonight to visit Her Royal Higness. Wishing you a blessed Samhain.

I love the pumpkins! I haven't tried anything beyond the plain vanilla gap-toothed grin, but yours are fantastic. You're so talented.

Your eerily delightful pumpkins have set the mood for my day, as they have taken over my thoughts, where surely they will stay! Thank~yous be yours! And O what I would not give for a room to the ceiling with Candy Corns!

Happy Halloween! May all good things come to you today, especially chocolate!

Merry Spirit Night!

You are talented! I'm hoping to get a shot of our 4 very sad little jack-o-lanterns tonight after dark, but they definitely won't look as good as yours. Happy Halloween!

this is the first year that I can remember that I didn't decorate or carve a pumpkin or make something for trick or treaters..but then? everything is in boxes and kids don't come here to trick or treat..and to top it off I forgot to go and take pictures..sigh*
your pumpkins are wonderful.

Sadly we don't celebrate All Hallow's here and because Laurent is away this year we didn't do our usual pumpkins.

Thanks for letting me share in your All Hallows feast.
