Halloween Is On The Horizon

Ohhhhhh it's nearly that time again! I adore the month of October and Halloween, particularly the hazy days, wonderful country smells of woodsmoke around my home, tasty foods; Pumpkin Soup, Butternut Squash and all things Autumnal.

Here are a few Halloween pieces from the past and present to get you ready for the Witching Hour!
My boys are already talking about making their Pumpkin Lanterns for Halloween and decorating the house in readiness. I am hoping for a clear but chilly evening so that we can go out and look at the stars after dark and then return to our living room to light our first fire of the season.
Although I am always sad to say goodbye to the Summer, I do look forward to Autumn, it is one of my favourite seasons.
The Autumn colours in my garden and surrounding countryside always make me smile and think warm cosy thoughts. And as the nights draw in I love nothing more than curling up in front of the fire with a warm drink and a copy of my favourite Magazine... Somerset Studio, of course!

HI
I guess you're getting in the mood for fall and I need inspiration so thank you your Halloween pcs are great!
I have been decorating the shop and trying to get inspired -- we have had such a cool summer it is hard to say good bye to it.

Wonderful artwork! I don't know which one is my favorite. They are so much fun to create. We're having wonderful autumn weather here and I can't wait for the leaves to begin changing colors.
