Papertrey October Blog Hop
And I'm looking forward to the Papertrey blog hop tonight. Its always inspiring to see what other PTI addicts have been making and of course I want to join in and offer my treats - especially the pumpkins ones! The lunch box die is perfect as a treat holder and I purchased some fun-size (don't know why they call them fun size - a larger size would be much more fun!) chocolate buttons and bars that fitted in nicely.
Theresa is currently holding a Halloween blog party with a giveaway and she wants to know our favourite Halloween memories. Well, as I said, we don't really have a tradition of celebrating on Halloween here in the UK but I do have a little pottery witch I bring out every October. She sits on my mantelpiece until its time to put up the Christmas decorations, so to me she is the very beginning of the Christmas crafty season. I remember buying her at one of those bargain basement stores many years ago. When my son was small he and I used to go with my Mum and Dad on Saturday shopping trips and on this trip Mum and I both bought a witch - Dad thought we were daft, but I've loved her ever since. She has decorated my October mantelpiece for at least the last 35 years and is a happy reminder of long ago shopping trips with my parents.
Oh, and I've two blog posts today. If you are curious to find out what constitutes a good Sunday afternoon outing here in Wales, scroll down and take a look!
