Happy Halloween!



Hi! The snow storm raged...but then it was gone, now the beach is just expecting early frost on the pumpkins. Brrr! instead of Boo!



Some fun stuff from around my little beach cottage...
Hearts of course!



A spooky greeting...


and more beach weeds...



My best cheddar quilt!


Bowls of pumpkins...



large.....




small.....



And stripey!
This one's from a favorite vendor at my farmers market. I just loved the yellow and orange  stripes, the wartiness, the red and green "freckles"...I try to find a unique pumpkin every year.


He's gonna stay for Thanksgiving, not be a jack o'lantern...


This is a new folkart piece I've been working on for---years! He's a bobble doll, a nodder. The spring and base are beachcombed finds...

 .

...and here's an old favorite, made when my kids were very small. (their papier mache ''jacks'' ---uh---didn't survive!)...




Happy Halloween!




love
