Custom orders are pouring in and the Kiddo is going to spend a few days with the Grandparents, so this evening after work, I’m going to pick up enough Diet Coke to launch me through the weekend, throw on the comfy pants and set the sewing machine on fire. Not literally on fire. On fire with my hawt sewing skillz.
This past weekend, I took a small break in between orders to whip out this awesome Halloween Stocking. I love Halloween, I love this time of year, which you already know about me from my previous posts. So I made this. You can stuff candy and other treats in it and give it to someone special. I’m going to give one to my poor kiddo who is now offically too old to dress up like a psychopath and beg strangers for candy.
You can order one for yourself HERE.
“From ghoulies and ghosties
and long leggety beasties
and things that go bump in the night,
May the Good Lord, deliver us!”
It’s almost Autumn. The beginning of my favorite time of year is peeking at me from around the corner. Yeah, it may be 96 degrees here today, but Sunday it will be 84. Then later, 82…then cooler and cooler it will get until the sweatshirts get unpacked and stripy kneesocks unfurl. Leaves will turn, the trees will fall gently asleep. I can almost feel the crisp breeze. Hear the leaves falling. Crunching. Smell the woodsmoke.
And while many Etsians are already peddling their Christmas wares, myself included, my other favorite holiday is creeping up also. Halloween!!! (Samhain for some of my friends) I love being outside on an Autumn night, with a big harvest moon overhead.
This all reminds me of sitting around listening to spooky stories told by my uncle. He loves the spooky, the creepy and the bizarre. That must be where I get it. He taught me the poem at the beginning of this post. He would read to us the stories of the Brothers’ Grimm and International Folk Tales from Collier’s. They were not nice with pretty endings like bedtime stories today. There was no Elmo. There was a witch in a gingerbread house who would cook children. There was no Barbie. There were the Hobyas that came out of the woods and ate the Woodcutter and his Wife after Little Dog Toby tried his best to warn them. They were creepy and frightening and just plain awful. How I love them all!
So, in honor of the creepy and eerie and a good old haunting, I present some of my Halloween Etsy faves…
Enjoy or I’ll TP your monitor.
From the eye of JacqleenBleu we have a scene that is surely haunted..
This drawing makes me wonder if KellieDrawsPictures has a big nightlight…
Look out! A witch lives here! But a very cool LilWitchy, she is…
