“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

It's Time!

Welcome to the very first

Glad you could make it!!
I'd like to start off this post by showing you some amazing
Halloween creations.
This adorable hat tag is from Marcia.

the back

These amazing tags are from Cindy Adkins

look at this little guy Norma made!
He looks like a crow,

Joann created this beautiful necklace

Is there a creepy house in your neighborhood?
There's a few around here, not just one...
in fact ours is one of them.
Our property and our next door neighbors' used  to be the town graveyard!
When it got too...full, the city had it moved to a larger area.
I know it was a long time ago, but I'm afraid to 
go out into the backyard alone at night :)
Gather round...I have a very short spooky tale to tell.

There was a lady that lived down the street from us.
with about 100 cats.
Allegedly, she fell off a table and passed away...then her cats....well, they were
hungry and...they carried her away.
 on windy nights you can (supposedly) hear cats
 screeching if you stand by the window of her abandoned house 
 (sounds like a gruesome urban legend to me)
why she was on a table is pretty puzzling too.

I hear something tapping at the window as I write...

uh oh! It's one of the fairy guardians!
Guess it's time to go.
Remember, if you'd like to share
just leave a comment on this post 
with a link back to your blog.

Hope you enjoyed this kick-start to the Halloween season:)
I'm off to have cocoa and popcorn.

see you soon!

    Is that story about your house sitting on an old graveyard true?? What if they didn't get up all the corpses?!
