Kids Are Awesome

Saw this on my Saturday morning walk. I didn't think that my grin could get any bigger until I noticed that the dialogue bubble next to the "body" said, "BRAINS". Kids excited about Halloween are awesome!!

Fall Cookies

I love baking cookies. This was an order that I did for a photographer friend of mine who was doing a Fall photo shoot. Every kid got a free cookie. How cool is that? I felt so happy, Halloweenie, and at ease decorating this beautiful mix of cookies. They're the very essense of Fall. I'm so happy with the way that they came out.

The Great Pumpkin

I'm pretty sure that I bought the Great Pumpkin this weekend. Here he is sitting in a Home Depot basket. I smile everytime I pass him in the living room :)I know carving him will be quite a chore, but oh the grin I'm imaging will be glorious >=)

New Fall Oreo Flavors

Oreo has done it again! These beauties are hitting store shelves TODAY! I'm going on a quest to find them, of course. I'll give a full report on flavor after I've devoured... uh... acquired them ;=)

In early September, I found what I thought was going to replace Oreo's Candy Corn cookies this season, Caramel Apple Oreos. I was a little, ok, a LOT apprehensive about these, but oh my great pumpkin, are they good! If you like apple, you're going to dig right into these.
It's still yet to be seen if the popular Candy Corn Oreo will be released for a thrid season in a row. Let me know what you think about these new Fall flavors! Delectable or disastrous? Happy Fall Flavors!

American Horror Story Season 4: Freak Show

Although NBC cancelled Dracula, my beloved American Horror Story is still going strong, heading into it's 4th season this October. All of the speculation leading up to this season's reveil proved to be accurate. Fan made posters featuring the theme of a Freak Show started popping up after season 3's finale.

Not long after, producer Ryan Murphy confirmed the theme. Bringing fandom to the next level, a group of AHS fans/film students (including a fellow haunter, the talented Mr. Chicken), created thier own teaser trailer, convincing many that it was the real deal :) AHS: Freak Show Fan Made Teaser FINALLY, the official extended trailer dropped last week and it looks amazing. I cannot wait to see what the twisted, creative minds behind this series will do under this theme!

Porch JOL

I stumbled upon this happy find when I stopped at the grocery store this weekend. There were a whole bunch of them, but this one was by far the coolest. $24.99 for 19 inches of grinning terra cotta. I think this guy may become a part of my year round decor.

Wind or Windless

Normally, I dread wind on Halloween because of the foggers. But I have to admit, wind does have a way of animating props that were meant to be static :)

NBC Series 'Dracula' Cancelled

I'm so bummed. I really enjoyed this series. I loved the scenes that portrayed old medical practices being performed in the surgery 'theatre', paning through shelves of bottles of tonics and specimens as wells as old medical tools. Did I mention that I'm also REALLY going to miss Jonathan Rhys Meyers beautiful face? Damn you NBC!

Don't Fear the Reaper...

He means no harm...unless you intend to cause harm, pain or destruction. Sounds like a vigilantly reaper to me :) Read about him here: Albuquerque Reaper

Halloween 2004

Before I had my own house :) Back then, I NEVER would have dreamed that my display would have morphed into what it is now. Thanks to the talented, supportive, and willing-to-share Halloween community I've come a long way since my humbled beginnings.This picture makes me smile. Yes, those are real cow bones.
On the other hand, our costumes were a lot more elaborate then!!!
Happy Almost Halloweenie Season my friends!!!
