Cinnamon Stick Santa Pins

I've been spending time working on ideas for Christmas. These cute little santa pins are a favorite of mine. I use to make them when my sister and I had our little Herb shop here in Denver. Christmas time was a favorite of mine back then, with all the natural scents, gift baskets full of herbal pleasures and small little gifts to fill your stockings. I've put some of these cinnamon stick santa pins up for sale on Etsy along with some other holiday gifts.

Trick or Treat

I meant to post some pictures from Halloween night that I took when we were out trick or treating. I was so busy over the weekend and the weather here in Colorado was so nice, in the mid 70s. So we spent Saturday at my sister's house and had our lunch at the park. Below are a few photos I took Halloween night.
My son went as an evil jester, here's the makeup I did on his face.
This is a jack o'lantern that my sister inlaw did, she got the idea from Martha Stewart. There are 160 light in this pumpkin, the holes were drilled and the lights were poked through.

So there were lots of carved pumpkins.

Lighted skeletons and bones.

And then there was Hannibal Lecter who was peering at us as we approached the bowl of candy awaiting trick or treaters. Even as we approached the house we were unsure if he was real or not.
This photo taken of a 2 foot skull is a little dark, but spooky. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves this year, I will be posting all my other Halloween photos and will include a link when I do.
