Hello Hall.OH.ween in 2017

One might say that I am a bit sPUNky at Halloween. No BONES about it…

This particular set is in Sister Bay, WI , participating in the GoBo cookie sale  (funds used in the fight against childhood cancer). Massive quantities of good looking sugar. October 13-15.  If you are near by, please consider supporting the cause!

Happy MEOWoween

Oh my, all the PAWSibilities when it comes to black cats and halloween.  It’s a FURmiliar TAIL of word play and topic.  This one is LITTERally PURRfect.  Hope your Halloween is full of wonFURful treats and CLAWver treasures.

Bone Dry

Maybe this isn’t Arizona but Colorado has been pretty, darned dry lately.  The only plants that seem to be thriving are the cacti.  Continuing in my skeleton groove, I thought it only fair to bring these bad-to-the-bone cactus to Halloween life.  Even the orange and black/terra cotta pots kept it hauntingly festive.  I can definitely say that the one on the right is a spiny cactus. Hope they tickle your funny bone…

Cookie cutters were from BobbisCookieCutters, SheyBCookieCutters, and TrulyMadPlastics.

Skeleton Keys

Another play on words??? So shocking.  Let me know if you are getting tired of them. Apparently I never do.  And I am kinda pleased with the random mermaid skeleton.   Do I even have to say that my mind works in weird ways???

Halloween GoBo 2016

Dear Halloween:  I get it.  You’re spooky. All that creaking and moaning is very expressive.  But I am just not that into the scary vibe.  I’d rather flaunt my haunt with a flavor of fun. Turning word play possibilities into probabilities. Hope we can still be friends.  My best, MMB

Here are the cookies that went out to the GoBoBakeSale this year (fundraiser for ALS).

Folk Art Halloween

I love the folk art scene.  Wish I was gifted in that arena.  Until I discover some (really wish) unseen, hidden talent, I took inspiration from the uber.sensational Johanna Parker (based in Denver, I believe.  Happy birthday Johanna!) and the catalog designers from Olive and Cocoa.

Please, no Samhainophobia today! May your candy buckets be full of joyful treats (Almond Joy?)!

Halloween Menu

I play with my food like I play with my words.  Wrap (like a mummy) your head around these notions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner this Halloween.  They’re the kind of ‘trick’ to which I like to treat myself.
