Hallowe'en Tidbits





I have been busy finishing up a couple of commissions for this week and also working on my ADO Challenge piece, which I hope to have completed tomorrow or Thursday. I'll post pics as soon as she is done. I'm also working on my swap piece for the Monsters Under the Bed swap (that has to be done first week in Nov). Yikes! Time flies!

For many, Hallowe'en is a much beloved time of year that has its roots going back thousands of years. The video below offers a short and concise history of this holiday.










Witches, pumpkins, black cats, ghosts, ghouls......quite an assortment of beings/items commemorate all Hallows Eve!


These old gals look so authentic! Love this pic!










(I never thought a lamb costume would look kind of scarey)

I'll end this post with a favorite Hallowe'en song from a favorite movie:

Happy Halloween Sue! Haha, I love historical halloween. The old witch dames are a hoot and yes, the lamb is scarey--though you have seemed to find the personification in all I love: farming AND Halloween ;)

BTW: I'm embarrassed to say I haven't started my Monsters Under the Bed Doll, either--DOH! :)
