Halloween Beach

Hello, everyone!

Despite the warm and balmy weather, it is Halloween.

Anyone who ever waxed poetic about crisp fall nights and frost on the pumpkin did not live near here. I for one am still wearing shorts...

This doesn't stop me from having Halloween fun though. [Slip me a bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and I'm happy til Christmas!]

Tomorrow we are carving our real pumpkins...but for now I have beachcombed ancient wooden nail keg-lid jack-o-lanterns...

papier mache funny faces...

black cats...

orange cats...

Many cats...

and more cheddar quilts...

Plus special "treats" for grown-up girls.....

Lavender-cinnamon hearts....


and another gorgeous sunset!



gone to the beach....
