"Something Wicked This way Comes..."

When witches go riding & black cats are seen,
the Moon laughs and whispers,
          "Tis soon Halloween...." 

Happy Halloween, my friends! As October's final days draw near, my blue and white home is being not-so-subtly taken over by  cheddar yellow, pumpkin orange; silver and brown. I used to do a much bigger change, using different cushions and brown transferware, but over the years [as I no longer host Thanksgiving or a Halloween party] I have come to enjoy the garish yet charming brief visit of Everything Orange. Then as November arrives and takes over, I'll probably switch to neutral quilts, before ending the beach year with holiday red/ white/ and dill pickle green. It's a bit melancholy but who knows, maybe someday my Turkey plates will appear again? And who could be sad with such happy Fall displays?

"Do I hear treats?"

"I would like a treat, mommy!"

"But I'm a very good boy. I LOOOVE chocolate."

[no chocolate for Mo. Pumpkin treats from TJ's]



gone to the beach....

PS we had our first of the winter nor'easter yesterday. It wasn't much, but the waves were huge. Almost on the 6th anniversary of H Sandy. And here we are still. Again.
