Autumn is coming!

This little treasure is for sale at our local farmer's market. It makes me think of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos and fall.

I also liked his partner and would have brought them both home in a minute, if the old budget had allowed. Sadly, it did not.

Autumn and Halloween merchandise is showing up all over the place, and I love it! I've already purchased a seasonal beer collection and a bag of candy corn at the grocery store. I love the wire bins bursting with cheerful scarecrows sitting on the sidewalk in front of the dollar store. The bookstore where I work is getting in all sorts of books and gifts for the season. There will be tables merchandised with books by authors like Poe and Lovecraft, gift items inspired by Tim Burton books and horror films, and craft/cook books filled with ideas for party recipes and decorations. Everywhere you go, you see evidence of the approach of Autumn.

What signs of the season are showing up where you live?


  1. It's so good to read that someone else has Halloween Fever besides my self. I came across your blog while hopping from Dragonfly J.
    The stores around here are slowly putting out Halloween merchandise, all that Black and Orange just makes me smile and feel good. Does it do that to you too?

    1. It does indeed! I plan to post more about this in the next week or so.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  2. I try to avoid Halloween, but sadly can't. France has gone Halloween crazy (all in the name of COMMERCE).
