A Spooky Interlude

This is my absolute favorite month of the year. The weather is great. It's not too warm, not too cool. The air is crisp, but the Sun is out. The days are still pretty long, there are still some flowers, and everything feels downright cozy. Not to mention that my birthday is in October.

But I also love all the spookiness that comes with October. My house is full of skulls, and bats, and ghosts and all manner of creepy cuteness. I mean, more than usual. 
Late last night I found two things that made me squee, and knew I had to share them here. 


First up, Cake Wrecks featured Tim Burton inspired cakes yesterday in their Sunday Sweets feature. These are my favorites, though I love them all:

 

Then I found this blog post about spirit photography from the late 1800sThe low tech shenanigans of these pictures crack me up. But kudos to them for being the forerunners for Photoshop trolls!
