The month of Halloween

http://severalreal.com/2018/08 lening maximaal duo As much as I don’t like the weather getting colder, I must admit that I love October. Mainly because it contains all things Halloween. I love having an excuse to dress up. Some years I put my costume together at the last minute, but this year I decided to be ahead of the game. My living room is currently covered in scraps of muslin and batting:

I have just enough sewing skills to put together a pillow, hem pants, or alter an already existing dress. I was worried that I didn’t have a pattern, but then I realized I could project it up onto my tv screen and trace it onto the muslin. It was cheaper to buy 10 yards of batting (that giant roll in the photo), so now I have about 7 yards of the stuff. I’m going to have to take up quilting or something (riiight).

And then there was a hailstorm as soon as I passed into Wilmette from Evanston, but luckily the hailstones were small. Oh, Chicago. You’re so strange. But the sunset was amazing! (Taken with a cameraphone, so this doesn’t adequately represent how beautiful it was.)

kart over abra havn go I bought a pumpkin last year for Halloween. Didn’t carve it, just put it in the corner of my dining room. I threw it out 6 months later, it looked as perfect as the day I bought it. I think it was possessed or something. Creepy pumpkin.

We’re still pretty green here, but southern Wisconsin has started changing and I hope to go there soon with my camera. Last year was lovely at Starved Rock, but it was raining so it was hard to get some of the shots I wanted. We’ll see how it goes this year!

  1. haus kopersand juist check It’s amazing how well pumpkins keep sometimes. I read this book to my nephew last year about a mouse making a home in a pumpkin, so since then we resolved to throw our pumpkins and jack’o’lanterns into the woods so they will be potential field mice homes. He thinks of it as housing homeless animals. It’s sweet and thoughtful. I don’t know if they serve as anything more than compost, but there is circle of life feel to the ritual. Halloween is hands down my favorite main stream culture holiday.
