It is Halloween! (halloween! halloween!)

Oh, man, it's hit me hard: Halloween. I get so excited - the costumes, the decorations, the candy!

Luckily, I am not the only one:

Elsie from A Beautiful Mess is having a Halloween blog celebration (with guests!) - including crafts, recipies & giveaways! A lot of giveaways! My favorites so far are these cute ghosties:

And these yummy looking Spiced Caramel Buttons:

More yummy treats - Pumpkin Bread Pudding from Emma at From Scratch.

And Meringue Bones made by Amy of Angry Chicken.

Adorable costumes are popping up already, including this Ever After giveaway from Kathleen at Grosgrain:

Yes, she is giving this away!

Mena from Sew Weekly turned her daughther, Penelope, into a miniature Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice. 

And Emily Martin of The Black Apple has been working on some awesome costume-inspired prints. I like this one - "Arrow Head." 

We are having a party on Saturday, and there is much to do before then: finish costumes, make delicious treats & carve pumpkins!

  1. That Elizabeth Bennet costume is too freaking cute! My kids are going to HATE me!

  2. Allyson - I know - Me too! Apparently that little girl WANTED to be Elizabeth Bennet! I love it!


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
