This big old scrap book is my Halloween diary. I have been recording for many years pictures of Halloween celebrations, trick-or-treaters as well as a tally of how many trick or treaters we've had each year. Our greatest take was always in our old house in West Linn, Oregon's historic district, Willamette. We usually got a little over a hundred trick or treaters. In this big house where we now dwell, we seldom get any, and this year was as a bumper in that we got all of 16. But I still buy BIG Costco sized packs of the standard, American chocolate candies as in M&M's, Snickers, Milky Way, Twix, Kit Kat and so on. I gave it out in handfuls so that we wouldn't have a lot left over in which to temp us.
We always doodle in the book, pictures of cats, witches, pumpkins, skeletons and so on.
I just finished loading a lot of items onto my Etsy Shop. The following pictures are some of the items. If you are interested in seeing the many dolls I've loaded up, they're there too. I haven't done paintings in a long time, so I'm pleased to share three of them below. But there is a secret about two of them with their descriptions. The data on them is on Etsy.
