What a wonderful time of year and oh how I love the fall season! Halloween will be here in a little over three weeks. Time to get ready with the tricks and treats and Halloween sweets...

Wikipedia says that "The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays dates back to the Middle Ages. Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval practice of souling, when poor folk would go door to door on Hallomas (November 1), receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day (November 2). It originated in Ireland and Britain, although similar practices for the souls of the dead were found as far south as Italy. The custom of wearing costumes and masks at Halloween goes back to Celtic traditions of attempting to copy the evil spirits or placate them."

However it all began, it's a tradition that I look forward to every year!


So it's the perfect time to buy your candy for your Halloween guests and DECORATE your home to welcome your visitors!

This year you can currently find two of my new designs on flags for your garden at Lowe's Home & Garden centers.

Please let me know if you decorate with one of my new flags and send me a photo. I would love to post a photo of you with my flag on this blog. If you (or your children) would like to be in the photo with the flag and you are dressed in your Halloween costume, that would be even better! Pet photos that include your animal dressed for Halloween are welcome too!

Thanks so much and Happy Haunting!
