It's time for Haunted Humpday III! Burt and Ivy are joining Marfi at Incipient Wings for a bit of scary fun leading up to Halloween. Hopefully, the skeleton crew will make it all the way to the end!
This week it's time for some serious Halloween shopping! Since it was a beautiful day Burt and Ivy decided to go to the farmers' market and then check out the latest displays of Halloween decorations before they are pulled off the shelves and replaced with Christmas ornaments!
The first stop was the garden center where they found a good selection of pumpkins.
Just as they were thinking about how retailers seem to devote much less time and effort into Halloween they ran into quite a group of old friends, but they didn't want to hang around too long . . .
so they went back outside to check out this a giant witch jack o' lantern chiminea . . .
. . . as well as lots of cool purple flowers and some cute ghosts.
Big decorations are all well and good but sometimes it's the little things that are the most fun.
It's hard to pass up a pumpkin scented candle, especially when there's a good pun on the label.
Burt decided this Trick or Treat banner that lights up was a necessity for the front door, plus there's a black cat riding on the Witch's broom so it was destined to be added to the collection.
He also spied this miniature version of himself so it had to come home, too.
After all that shopping a stop at the liquor store was inevitable and they found some tequila with the most fabulous labels. It was too hard to decide which one they liked best so they got both!
Cheers to Halloween shopping and a Happy Haunted Humpday to all!
