The Bewitching Hour......


 
The wind is howling outside my door as if mischievous witches are having a wild, ladies night out.  The tall, crooked, old trees bend in the gusts of the cold, chilly wind and are silhouetted against the moon's glow of the blackened night sky.   It gives you a bone-chilling feeling, doesn't it?

Halloween is fast approaching.  Along with its creepiness, Halloween means so much more for me.  Halloween reminds me of all of those fun and cherished moments at this time of year, including high school homecoming parades, football games, garden harvests, baking pumpkin breads from homemade roasted pumpkin puree, burning MacIntosh Apple scented candles, carving pumpkins for the front porch and, of course, the sweet memories of the children enjoying each year's trick or treat. Those treasured memories, now long in the past, will always be held close to my heart even though the children are now grown adults.

So in remembrance of those wonderful heart-warming celebrations,  I continue the tradition of Halloween by crafting a whimsical Halloween tablescape.  I know it still appeals to many who are still children at heart.  I hope you and your entire family have a fun and magical Halloween.

  2. That pumpkin with the buggy eyes made me smile :)

    Halloween, in many ways, is one of my favorite holidays. We always had such a blast dressing up,but unfortunately that's been curtailed as of late. Also, no one trick or treats here because it's so rural, so it's definitely not what it used to be. This year, though, there's a gathering at the clubhouse and we are definitely dressing up, even if we are the only ones! :/
