    Mary you are the hands down Halloween Queen! There are so many ideas, recipes and things to absorb here, it would take until next Halloween to explore them all! I tried and tried to pick my very favorite thing, but that was impossible! I do think your finger sandwiches are beyond creepsville, but I do love what you do with the sweets! Every photo is a masterpiece of eye candy! Happy Halloween!
