The magical light of October calls for a celebration. Since we're on the cusp of All Hallows Eve, my thoughts turned playful. Why not serve something mystical? A tiny feast with spells and spirits. I set up a wine and cheese bar on the porch, complete with a resident ghost. If you don't blink, you can see him floating over the table, peering into the orange wine glasses.
Actually, the ghost is a tin sign. Too cute! And he daren't go bump in the night. (Because I won't leave him propped up on the screen!)
Mary, from Home Is Where the Boat Is, sent me a darling set of skeleton salad servers, and they add a spooky, humorous touch to the table.
I'm still working on the sitting area for the porch. I'd started spray painting the wicker a glossy black, but the fumes set off an asthma attack. Bandwidth has been painting items when I bug him.
I will probably bug him this weekend.
Just a few more days to savor October. I'm enjoying every minute.
