Halloween is my favourite holiday. It's been a while since I've dressed up and actually done anything, but I just love all the creepy decorations, the scary movies, the treats, and that spooky eerie feeling. I'm really excited about Halloween this year because we should actually get Trick or Treaters to our house! Since I've lived on my own, I have always lived in apartment buildings with few/no kids, so I've never had the fun of dressing up and handing out candy.
In August, Dan and I started Brainstorming ideas for costumes. I love period costumes, so we had this great idea to make Late Victorian / Early Edwardian era costumes entirely out of ghostly muslin and cheesecloth, powder up our hair and faces and go as old-timey ghosts. Halloween seems to be approaching a little too fast this year to pull that off... but maybe next year. Any excuse to make a corset and a bustle!
I have to admit, I've spent a lot of my spare time lately browsing Etsy and Pinterest for Halloween goodies. I've got a good little wishlist going on...

In time for Halloween, we seem to be having some 'ghostly' phenomenon going on at the house, with our kitchen light being 'mysteriously' on when we wake up. Most likely, my dear husband is forgetting to turn the darn thing out before he goes up to bed... but I love nothing more than creeping myself out, so I've let my imagination run wild in the spirit of the season! In truth, I am the biggest skeptic, but there is a part of me that wants to believe in aliens (yeah, the grey kind), bigfoot, and ghost stories.
And, with that, it's time for me to go! It's freezing outside and I'm trying to put off my walk to work... which I can't do much longer.
Have a great weekend everyone! I'm finishing up a big custom order this weekend and I can't wait to show pictures.
