I got this book when I was probably about 11 years old and 20-some-odd years later, I still have the same copy. It was the book I brought with me to all my childhood slumber parties. I know I read it to my younger sisters many a time and I was recently reminded by a younger cousin that I read it to him several times as well. I loved this book with all it creepiness. You should see it now. Pages falling out, corners ripped and scuffed. It’s what Halloween is made of. Scary creepy stories. I am saving it for my boys when they are much, much older. I couldn’t handle the thought of giving them nightmares!

I also have been decorating a bit. Made some gauzy ghosts to hang out, with lights and jack-o-laterns. Unfortunatley it poured the other night, soaking my little ghosts into drippy, limp and sad little strings of hanging gauze. I just happened to take a picture of them before the rain. I hadn’t finished the other decorations at the time, so you can’t see them in all their glory.
I also took out my halloween dessert dishes (which I usually forget to do).
I love this time of year! Hope everyone has a safe and haunting weekend.
