|Vampire Bat Necklace by MCStoneworks on Etsy|
Crisp mornings, advertisements featuring cuddly sweaters, and yellow school buses herald the approaching change of seasons. This is a beautiful time of year in the Northeastern United States. Soon our trees will be bright with shades from gold to scarlet, asters will be blooming and the smell of wood fires will once again become part of our environment. All of these things signal to me that Halloween is near. Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays. It brings out the silly child in me. I love the decorations, the costumes and of course the treats!

It even comes with a burned red rose bouquet and black lace mantilla style veil decorated with more red roses of course.
|Handmade leather mask by Ken Osborne|
Kennosborne represents a husband (Ken) and wife (Becky) team of artists whose favorite materials include "anything we can get our hands on."
|Skeleton arm warmers by LadyLotus|
Wear "dem bones" on the outside with these funky arm warmers/fingerless gloves by LadyLotus. These arm warmers are made from recycled T shirt fabric, projects that didn't turn out the way the Lady wanted them to. What a great use of material!
Jewelry is a delightful way to add a little scary to your otherwise sedate work attire.
Vampire bats in black, antiqued brass and verdigris roost in the shop of MCStoneworks on etsy. Michelle offers an entire verdigris collection that has a dark and mysterious air.
Marvin the Marvelous mummy resides at Fireball Beads by Islandgirl on etsy. He has friends there too. I found tiny ghost beads and a beautiful black cat there too.
Scary or funky, sexy or bold costumes are a delightful way to celebrate the season.
