jack-o-lanterns

Woohoo! It's actually cool outside, and has been for the last couple of days. Sure it was very grey and rainy all weekend, but it's cool! So to celebrate the first day of October and the fact that it looks like Fall may actually be arriving, it seemed time play around with a new header. Something fun, a Halloween theme this time. You know, I'm not terribly fond of orange but pumpkins are the exception.

For more October goodness, Lisa's Halloween poppets are on sale. She'll apparently be adding even more creations over the next few days to tempt us with! I have a feeling Violette and Kiara were just the beginning as I've decided that I just must have a rat. A Trick or Treat Rat to be specific. I know. I know. But since I was born on Halloween in the Year of the Rat, I figure it's meant to be! Happy October everyone!

  1. I totally fell in love with that rat, too! But just not in the budget, I'm afraid. But you're right...there is NO way that you can pass that up! It almost seems as if she made it with you in mind, don't you think?

  2. Debi,
    LOL. Thanks for approving! :)
    I'm very glad it was one of the mid-range price ones and not a one-of-a-kind ones! 2008 is the Year of the Rat, I wonder if she'll do something special for it next year.

  3. Love the new header! The orange looks especially nice with the black background. I'm glad it's beginning to cool off for you! We've been up and down with our temps. It was 84 on Sunday, but a cold front came through (along with a tornado watch!) and dropped the temp down to 60 within minutes. This is the time of year I never know what to wear to work. Cold in the morning, but hot in the afternoon. But I'll take it over the frigid temps of winter.

  4. Thanks Les. It's just for fun! I realised I shouldn't say I dislike orange entirely, it's bright orange that I'm not crazy about but dark or burnt orange is nice.
    The weather here is still a bit weird too. The daytime is still pretty warm as it's still quite humid. blah! But the nights are cool now which makes sleeping much nicer.

  6. Thanks Iliana. You should definitely get one or two..or ten! :P
    I didn't even know what poppets were last year. It's the power of the blog! Happy October to you too!
