Well, hello best month of the year and Happy October! Can you actually believe it’s Halloween month again already? OK, so 2020 may go down as one of the shittiest years on record, and surely the worst of a generation, but there is no way Covid is cancelling MY Halloween!
The Rule of 6 might have put paid to a physical Halloween Open House this year and Trick or Treating may just be a haunting memory, but I’ve been quietly plotting, planning and RE-planning.
Even if there’s another lockdown, Hagatha and I will STILL be decorating!
And we won’t be alone.
This year, I’m helping to organise a socially-distanced Halloween Trail in our village. Residents are being invited to Halloweenify their homes for all to see. Whether it’s a window scene, spooky porch, pumpkin plant pot, or a full-on display with all the bells and whistles (guess who?!), everyone gets to celebrate Halloween. Even if that celebration does end up being at a distance during a daily quota of exercise.
As an incentive to get people involved, Beloved and I are also offering something skullalicious from my collection. I can only imagine what our unsuspecting neighbours will make of that!
Talking of prizes, I’ve just launched a Halloween Giveaway on Instagram to celebrate reaching 3,000 followers. So make sure you head over and record your entry.
Up for grabs is a trio of terrific treats, including not one but TWO HomeSense Halloween collectibles, as well as one of my very own Framed Miniature Ouija Boards.
Not only will this BOOtiful bundle give you a head start on your own Halloween decorating, but each item will warm your little Halloween heart all year round.
Are you excited for Halloween month? I know I am!
Said decorating commences in The School House TODAY! So expect to see progress photos and more curious creations appearing here on the Blog and also over on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest in the coming weeks.
I can’t wait to share it all with you.
A hui hou,
