Happy Halloween and/or Happy Fall
I made this little watercolor card for my girlfriend...then copied it and printed out copies for my adult children, grand children and brother and mailed them off! I think they are getting them tomorrow. Oh well, it's the thought that counts! I used the letter stamps I bought at Art and Soul for the first time too. Consider it your card too okay? Happy, happy fall holiday! Will you go to a costume party? Will you dress up? Or will you like me turn off the lights and hide from the revelers and lay low? I have many wonderful memories of fun Halloweens when I was a kid. My girlfriend Patty's mom, (across the street) would put on a party for all the neighborhood kids in their rumpus room downstairs. We'd bob for apples in a silver tub of water; some years she'd hang the apples on strings from the ceilings and we'd have to try to bite into one with our hands behind our backs; she made carmel apples and popcorn balls. And she, the mom, would dress up as a witch with a big green nose! She was scary. Remember those orange and yellow and white triangle candies called candy corn. I think they still sell that. What are your childhood memories of Halloween? We could have a party here! Perhaps post a costume on your blog that you would be wearing when you come to my party!
