a happy halloween

hadley's first trick-or-treating adventure was a success (no surprise there!).

her bag of candy was 'too heavy to carry' after only two blocks (avoiding the houses with the 'scary wool' aka fake spiderwebs) - and after sorting thru her loot - she only wanted the smarties + lollipops.

i learned too late of the 'halloween fairy' (the child leaves their candy out for the fairy who visits during the night and exchanges the candy for a toy). next year.

** update: i told hadley about the halloween fairy. she looked at me skeptically while i explained the details and then replied: "well ... i'd NEVER do that! i love candy too much!" and then polished off a box of nerds. **

earlier in the month, we traveled to the pumpkin patch.

like last year, the combination of muck + mushy pumpkins made hadley retch - so i grabbed some pumpkins and we hightailed it to the snack bar for mini-donuts + hot chocolate.

with halloween behind us, i am hard at work preparing for three upcoming local christmas markets at hycroft, dunbar community centre + heritage hall.

new in my shop - rosso - is a oneofakind dress in vintage cotton which features bold 'painterly' colour blocks of brick red, dark rose + olive on natural background.
