All In The Name Of Hallow Fun

 October has been full of Halloween fun. Here is a re-cap of the past week celebratory fun. Every time we went into Walmart me went down the Halloween isles and played dress up.

 Pumpkins were carved on a day of rain and sun to spooky tunes of Pandora's Halloween Party station.

 Many theatrical song and dance were performed along the viewings of our favorite Halloween movies, and art was inspired.

Costumes and trick or treating at school to raise funds for my daughters 6th grade end of year trip was a hit.

My {M} turned the big 6 yesterday. We went to John's Incredible Pizza, the skating rink, and then cake and ice cream at home.

I hope this Halloween season was celebrated in many ways that brought you bliss! Today's celebrations will commence with taking the teens to see a scary movie since they have the day off (how lucky for them). Trick or treating will take place in the rain, but I'm equipped with a large black umbrella trimmed with red roses that can also serve as a method of protection in case any clowns get out of hand. Take time to reflect and renew, it is the Witches New Year after all.

~ Brightest Blessings to you all, and to all a good fright ~

Releasing The Power Of Gen 7

Come, sit close, warm your bones by the fire, what I whisper to you is of need and desire. The curious child sits and  listens intently to Abuelas teaching,  you must respect your elders and their message their preaching.

Mother Earth is bountiful with her provisions
but life will halt with human decisions

Tenderness to her must be made by all  nations
so your 3 stages will ripple into the next 7 generations

As above, so below
the ancestors knew, but will the future know?


What's up my witches! I hope you enjoyed this contribution to Witches In Fiction 2016, the art below is a magical portal to the hostess's wicked domain so click and transport.

Make No Bones About It

Art from my Llywellyn's Witches Calender

Now that I got your attention with a straight forward quote "Happy Humpday & October". How is this month treating your skeleton so far? The mornings here in the valley are chilly with warm afternoons and then crisp evenings. It is still to soon to pack away the summer wares which is also making the Halloween transitioning so hard, I like to move things out before moving things in and rearranging. Later today I'm taking the decorations out of storage and getting prepped to decorate. I have a few skeletons lying around to show you, and hopefully next week I'll have more to show.

I bought this piece at Ross last year and love the vintage washed look. I have it hung over the dining table in the living room {I threw out my couches that were so dingy one day and haven't replaced them so I put the table in there}. The art hangs on the wall throughout Thanksgiving as a reminder to be thankful to our ancestors who have provided instinct and culture in our lineage and have since past over.

One of the many projects I have my fingers on are these guys & gals. I used nail glue and nail jewels to add some sparkle to those desolate eye sockets. They may have whole outfits or just some Dia de Los Muertos flare. These skeletons come in a garland of four at the Dollar Tree.

 Heart jewels upside down make the perfect nose. This one has stars in his eyes and a gleam in his smile. Maybe it's those lovely set of hips near the fruit bowl that has his bones rattling.

 This season can be hectic so try not to become a basket case and lose your head. Whether it be pure Autumnal fun, Witchy, or scary Halloween bliss, enjoy what the season holds and remember magic is all around when your eyes and heart are open!
