The Search for My Perfect Halloween Begins...

In my previous post I talked about the kind of Halloween I do and don't like. I'm going to search the web, blogland and the outside world to find the prefect Halloween and share what I find here on my blog. I'm not sure what I'll find or come up with but, I'm excited! I for sure will not be heading to the commercial Halloween stores as that's what started this search. To my joy, last week, there was one open already near my house. I got sooo excited and then I was very disappointed with overload the "sexy" costumes - sexy witch, sexy vampire, sexy Alice in Wonderland - geez when did Halloween get sexy? There was a lot of gore stuff too. I like a little blood during Halloween but, some of it just seemed gross.

Of course Hallween means different things to different people so when I say perfect, it's what perfect is to me. So let's begin with one of my favorite artists that caputures the spirit of the perfect little witch....

This is Darcie by Paulina Cassidy. She is for sale on her website, the link is on my side bar. Paulina has also created these...

It's a lovely little 1x1 inch brooch. And, it's only $7 on her site. Sooo cute!

Thank you to all that have shared your suggestions for shops to check out. I can't wait to see what awaits there!


  1. Will be looking forward to seeing what things tickle your lil' Halloween Fancy Miss Joane! And since I adore Paulina's work too, I can only assume you have great taste...ha! :o) Enjoy the hunt!

  2. Ohh that brooch is ADORABLE! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the perfect Halloween.
