I really love Halloween. I liken myself to Claire in the Halloween episode of Modern Family, except instead of actually acting on my love with elaborate costumes or decorations it's all in my imagination. That is why I am always so enamored by the Halloween goodies and crafts that pop up this time of year online and in catalogues and magazines.
Here are some of my favorites:
"Too cute to be creepy" Salem Owls
A mini-paperclay Halloween Jack O Lantern
Bone and teeth Halloween Bottle Openers
I fantasize about having a reason to indulge in these, like a big festive Halloween party or creating a spooky trick or treat experience for the kids in our neighborhood, but I can never seem to justify the expense. However, this year we had a few gift cards left over from our wedding so I decided to indulge in this and am currently drinking my coffee in this.
Halloween rituals start with making everything spooky!
