This will be the first time -- I think ever -- that I won't be dressing up for Halloween. It's also the first time in many years that my house is not the most creepily decked-out for Halloween on our street. Sure, I put out the life-size mummy on the porch and the giant eighty-foot tall witch at the edge of the driveway, but where are the ghosts, the gravestones, the skeletons, spider webs and rats? Oh, and the bats! I have a few giant bats I hang every year, and then there's the fifty or so little bats that I made out of pom poms, felt and pipe cleaners about fifteen years ago. Oh yeah, and I managed to get a couple of nice pumpkins, but I didn't have time to carve them into Jack-o-lanterns. How sad is that?
Well, I will miss all that fun Halloween stuff, but there's always next year! For now, I couldn't be more excited to be heading to Chicago to sell my Zazzy Peacock felted jewelry at Vogue Knitting Live. Do you think I could at least wear some vampire fangs on the airplane? Happy Halloween! Here's a glimpse of some of my favorite Halloweens past:
