Halloween/Day of the Dead Blog Hop

I miss my kiddos being little and trick-or-treating. I miss the dreaming of who or what they would want to be, the layering of the bits and pieces of their costumes and the rummaging through the treasure of candy at the end. So I made my own little trick-or-treaters ... aliens for my earlobes. They're sweet yet sugar free! ;-) The green and orange "body" is a glass art bead by Robert Jennick.

Happy Halloween!

Hi:
I like the ' Orange Glass Dead Body' very much:-) Your earrings' colors remind me of the pumpkin too:-))
Wonderful idea for Halloween-ideal addition to the fine costume.
There is no tradition of Halloween here,in Sweden,but the similar 'Festelawn' in early Spring-in all Scandinavia instead.But on Halloween night I always prepare a small decoration,with the 'witch'-I have made myself,´the brush-her flying attribute,the glass ball,some pumpkin lanterns,the black cat and the sack:-)
Happy Halloween to You:-))
-Warm Greetings-
