I’ll try to cool it on the extended Halloween posts and get back to standard SWS spooky material, but first…check out Haunted Swamp Designs’ painted gourds.

As a child with, for better or worse, an exaggerated sense of empathy, I remember asking my mother if pumpkins felt pain when we carved them. She reassured me they did not (though fascinating plant studies have emerged to indicate otherwise, at least with plants still growing in soil).
Here we have 3 whimsical jack o’lanterns that are appropriately irked by having their insides scooped out.
The octopus is, in my opinion, perhaps the most magnificent creature on earth. Smart, mercurial…capable of crushing a jack o’ lantern in its own tentacles. Observe this lovely cephalopod celebrating Halloween.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween! I spent mine thoroughly “stoned” (with kidney stones, that is), though despite being doubled over in pain it was still a very special day (thank you, CP!).
Crafts were limited this year due to illness, but my space was adorned with cheesy effigies to my cats (The resemblance is rather striking):
Although I’ll get back to posting some regular SWS material, I adore Spooky Moon’s idea to prolong the Halloween spirit with HALLOWVEMBER! Who says Halloween has to end on the 31st? Rubbish! You may see some ghostly posts pop up here.
What did you guys do for Halloween?
Sadly, my countdown got derailed for a day. On top of my plentiful standard health problems, I got walloped with three kidney stones that have left me curled up on the bed and unable to concentrate.
But it turns out there are some cool creatures living in my body, as evidenced by my CT scan results. For example, check out this bat!
I have no idea what I’ll be feeling like tomorrow, so if I don’t make it on here…HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And thank you all so much for reading.
