No room service,No concierge,No house keeping service... well except for that of the houseboys... BUT yet this is still my favorite place to be... my pied de terre… to be precise, my favorite cozy-corner sofa by the window. It is always my favorite place in my apartment and where I read my blogs and usually post from. It generally takes me some time to adjust to summer ending, but once I do embrace autumn...I'm ready for it. And since fall has arrived I have been enjoying the fall scent candles and the spices for mulled cider scenting the home when preparing. Nothing like it. And let it not be said I don't like my Halloween décor. My favorite of holidays.
Not that Im bat shit crazy, but I enjoy the fun side of Halloween, but also I too embrace the true meaning of Samhain.If you’re new to the pagan tradition, I think it's a great time to remember loved ones of the past.... and like an altar in place, you can easily set up a table or console table and leave it in place. Decorate the altar with symbols of late fall, such as: skeletons, grave rubbings, harvest food such as pumpkins, squash, root vegetables, nuts and berries, dried leaves and acorns , or a cornucopia filled with an abundance of fruit.A time to embrace the dead.
A favorite light up that was my grandmothers from when I was a child
My alter of sorts. And my regular readers know I love me my candles!
A collection of crepe pumpkins from the Dame.
Of course these spirits are nice too!!!!
Apothecary filled with gourds, pumpkins, acorns, pine cones and dried berries.
I love white pumpkins. How cute is that real little one?
More candle is the boudoir. In total I light around 20 candles at night. Looks like a séance.
With exception to two Halloween parties, with one more yet, it was a good weekend to be home and with rain, wind, and cold, it was time for a great Pot Roast dinner...with some red wine.
Friends say aren't you crazy for tempting with the dead and such, and celebrating them? Hell no, I even walk the neighboring cemetery Halloween night usually. Not to worry, my minions have guard over me.
Where's your favorite 'corner'
