From Ghoulies and Ghosties and long leggedy Beasties and things that go bump in the night...
It was a dark and stormy night.....
Well, not really ~ but that's how all the spooky stories start right?
There I was in the fading evening light... admiring my hardly little marigolds....
My Morning glories have drooped into sad little ghostly shapes.The Zinnias have wizzled and mostly have fizzled ~ from the chillin' they got from the frost.
I heard a rustle; and turn to see a blurry apparition behind me.
Hmmmmm I thought, must be my eyes playing tricks.
But I got the feeling SOMETHING was watching me...
with a cold glassy eyed stare.
He looked pretty happy, but I decided I better go inside anyway.
and like after watching a tense scary movie, my nerves were a little on edge.... so I peep under my art table before I sat down, just in case....
plus, I'd recently heard about another lovely artist girl who found out she wasn't alone!
...you can go see what she found here --> Catherine Constance
Low and behold.... I WASN'T alone.
And what to my wondering eyes did appear you ask?
This Raggle Taggle band of Halloween Merry Makers!
This is Burble....
(his Mother was a Marshmallow Peep, and his Father was a Circus Peanut)
What a happy fellow his is ~ Gives great big soft hugs!
(he wears a belt bag, cuz he has no pockets to hold is Candy Corn.)
Pirate Pete was there next to him...
He wears a tennis ball on the end of his peg leg so he doesn't clomp so much when he walks.
And, one of his ears is a bit oversized... a side effect of wearing that big heavy gold earring for so long. But his best mate Soot the cat doesn't mind, and loves him anyway!
And then there's Wallace, he's a distant cousin to Sasquatch ~ but he's not as shy.
He always wears his fancy socks with the pom poms on when the weather turns cold.
He never goes anyplace with out Louisa the Mouse ~ best of friends they are.
(he named her after Louisa on Doc Martin, his favorite show from BBC)
He's a bit of a nervous fellow... and he's afraid of the dark.
So he carries a flashlight in his pocket to shed a little light in the dark corners.
I felt so much better after meeting them... that I decided to go have one more look around outside.
and sure enough.... there in the underbrush....
She raised her Pumpkin Lantern in greeting.
Wonderful things can happen sometimes, given the chance,
and a little bit of bravery...
|Scary stories make me clutch my heart in fright... glad this one had a happy ending!|

and P.S ~ though I'm not into sports,
I would give two thumbs up to our Red Sox baseball team for winning the World Series!!
