Scary Hand Pies

I decided to scare up some hand pies with October’s arrival and in anticipation of Halloween! Some scary hands reached out and grabbed me when I was creeping along the aisles of Target, one of my favorite Haunts, last October~ Now these sinister skeletal hands have some pies in their evil clutches. . . Literal eye candy in the form of Wilton Candy Eyeballs were also watching me from the…

A Surplus of Candy Corn

I have a surplus of candy corn from my candy jars.  Despite the fact that it’s the poster-child-candy for Fall & Halloween, easily substituted for Bat Fangs used in potion stirring spoons~  I have to confess~ I am not a fan of the flavor or texture. . .   { insert gasp here } . . . blasphemous,…

Her Fearful Symmetry

The past couple of weeks I’ve offered up Halloween Treats & practiced my potions stirring up some Witches’ Brew in anticipation of Halloween. This week I’m digging up some literary inspiration for a table from a ghostly tale set at Highgate Cemetery in London. . . Her Fearful Symmetry ***  by Audrey Niffenegger “Her Fearful Symmetry, a haunting tale about the complications of love,…

Halloween Treats Tablescape

  I have a case of Halloween Fever curable only with table full of treats! Since Target is one of my favorite Haunts, I’ve been creeping along the aisles for several weeks now, exercising caution & restraint~ until recently. . . When these Scary Skeletal Hands reached out and grabbed me~ fortunately they prefer to hold a munchkin pumpkin in their…

Giving Thanks

I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday~ I set a table for two outside taking advantage a serene lake in the background, with most of the recreational boaters having put away their boats for the season. I am thankful for so many things but this past weekend, I was thankful for crisp fall weather, a Carolina Blue…
