Happiest, of most happy Halloweeens, to you!
There is an Elfin party in the garden, of the Halloween variety!
Pumpkin heads arrive on time, for a scrumptious pumpkin holiday celebration...
Elves and I, up to our favorite shenanigans. Sweet, salty, sparkly, twinkly and fun, that is our motto ;)
Fairies flutter, owls hoot, gnomes peek about...
Elves from all over the enchanted garden come together, miniature deer too, of course...
For a once a year party, with merriment enough, to collect tales a plenty!
So glad you are here at the pumpkin cottage!
The elves are on their 2nd cottage this season ;)
They insisted on fresh pumpkins to live in throughout autumn, so, I must oblige of course!
The scents and the colors, the crisp autumn air, reminds us to run about, with butterflies in our hair!!
Fix your bow tie, lace up your bloomers!
The party never ends around here, I thought you knew that?
Nightfall brings magic, and song, and spooky tales...
Haunted mushroom groves and scary trolls, witch's flight and goblin's toes!
Let's all huddle and tell our tales, mushroom nog is flowing, and marshmallow surprise is baking!
Please stay a while, kick off your pointy shoes!
Oh, let's soak it all in!!!
I can't get enough, and now I know why. Halloween gives us permission to be, who we really are. Oh yes it does. Cackles and costumes, and decorations and lights. Wacky and crazy and perfect delights!
The gift of the season is, a brain filled with reason. Reason being the fact that, the joy and life that exudes from us during this most magical time of the year, never has to go away. We can bring it out, for a day to day soiree.
Light the candle, and never blow it out, we say!!
Let's hold on tight, elfin hand to elfin hand!
Whimsy and fanciful frivolities unite!!!
Off we go, in a swirl of Halloween, to keep it alive...
And remind ourselves, to always believe in the dream!!!
ps: Halloween baking for our Halloween Feast ensues!! I will have flour up to my elbows today! Tip-toe into my kitchen with your magical powers, and help me out! What are you up to today?? Ooooo, I love Halloween!
pss: I have danced so much this morning, I need another spell!
Now, watch your ear drums! Eeehehehehehehehehahahaaaaa!!
My Mombie wanted my cackle on tape, so, there she goes ;)
psss: Witch Fingers & Witch Toes, yumms!
I just finished making these. Before they were baked, I mixed edible gold and silver dust into my food coloring and painted it onto the almond nails once they were on the fingers.
After they were baked, I took more of the edible sparkle dust and brushed it all over the baked fingers....
They are sooo super sparkly in person, mmmm!
And quite tasty!
What is a proper Halloween feast without baked witch fingers and toes, I ask?
(I wish you could see the amazing sparkle of gold dust on the fingers)
On a whim, I used this recipe. It was great! One change I made is that, I used salted butter (instead of unsalted), and therefore omitted the "pinch of salt" from the recipe.
My mom makes a savory version of these. Must try those next year. Alas, I didn't plan these until this morning. Back to my cauldron I go!
