Now that the seasons have changed and we’ve entered the slow dark months, I’ve found there’s more time for reading and other slow pursuits. Especially when Andy’s out of town for work, I like to have a stack of reading material to keep me occupied. Because of my work with Birdie’s Hallowe’en, I’ve been doing lots of reading on the subject and history of Hallowe’en. I came across a few new favorite books that I’m sharing below, and even created a little Hallowe’en vignette using one of my new finds on our dining room table. For me, there’s so much inspiration to be found this time of year!
“October, the golden month, when Nature having reaped a
wonder harvest of beauty, wastes it like a spendthrift for our
joy! What hostess can fail of success in entertaining this
month when there are autumn leaves, flowers, ‘golden glorious,’
and vines flushing with crimson, to bedeck the table.”
~~The Housekeeper, October 1910
If you’re looking for some fun books on the subject, I’ve linked to some of my favorite books on Hallowe’en below:

As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
