I love October for many reasons. Fall is in full swing, and Halloween is just around the corner. I have always made my daughter's costumes, but with a new job and school still dragging on, thins year I did it a bit differently. She told me what she wanted to be, and I put together a costume. It's not a pre-packaged outfit, and I'm even sewing some elements of it. The hard part comes when she wants me to dress up with her. I haven't had time to think of how I'm going to do that.
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. It doesn't have obligation attached to it, and it is creative and fun. Vintage Halloween items are particularly admired items, such as the postcards I've posted here. Maybe I will channel a bit of vintage charm when designing my costume. What will you be for Halloween?
