Haunted Humpday

I'm back again for Haunted Humpday. Can you believe it's already October next week? Fall has a habit of suddenly sneaking up on us, embracing us in a whirl of crunchy leaves and pumpkin glitter. Then just like that, softly, quietly and oh so sadly, it disappears for another year.
 
So take a deep crispy apple toasty breath and enjoy the season.

Believe it or not this mini ghost pumpkin is from last Fall. I kept it by the kitchen sink next to a potted plant and it made it through the whole year. Isn't this giant mug spooky fabulous? It came all the way from Arizona :)
 
 
I stopped by my local Target store on my way home from the animal shelter earlier. I was so excited to see all their Halloween goodies finally out. It's a yearly ritual for me, checking and waiting for those aisles to fill up with bags of candy and spooky paper and trim.
 
Got your witchy hat on? Let's do some window shopping!
 
 
I love this year's black bird tree and skull theme. I've used vinyl tablecloths before as a backdrop or curtain and I think this one might be great for my Broomsticks on the Bayou party post.
 
 
This pillar candle and holder has a great New Orleans voodoo feel to it. Just add strands of beads or hang a poppet or two.
 
 
I can't remember if this lights up. I love the cage but I think I can get the same look with stuff I already have. I love the shape though.
 
 
Too cute! I'd use it year round.
 
 
How about gingerbread skeleton cookies? Perfect for a voodoo party.
 
So if you haven't had the chance to check out the Halloween collection at your Target go in and see if it's already up before everyone else gets their hands on it and they all disappear.
 
Now you probably already know that Isis and I will be in a costume parade next month to support Pit Bull Awareness Day. Isis thought she would show off a few more pieces from her fabulous haunted wardrobe. What do you think?
 
 
Bat wings (with a yet to be crafted black tutu)?
 
 
 Or sweet pittie pumpkin?

Hope you're having a fantastic Haunted Humpday.

Now go visit Marfi at Incipient Wings for more spooky bliss.

I vote for Bat Wings and tutu!
She will be a winner no matter what.

Our target is slowly putting things out and Walmart is a little quicker. I am finding I can do almost as well at the dollar store but you know my favorite haunts are the second hand stores.

I love your ghost pumpkin and that lovely pillar candle.

Speaking of Broomsticks on the Bayou; have you read about this season's American Horror Story? It's about witches, set in New Orleans and has a character molded off Marie Laveau! Was that where you guys got the idea..?
