~ All Hallows Eve ~

Merry Halloween!
A Blessed Samhain to you all!!

Tonight the winds will stir memories of our beloved folks 
who have passed on before us ~
Light a candle in their honor
and...set a place at your dinner table tonight for them 
while the veil is thin between their world and ours.

Welcome them home once again...

Here are a few of my very favorite antique postcards and photographs
of my very favorite 'holiday' ~

the photo below is so clever ~ 
but that child's face is telling another story altogether!

 and although the photo below is slightly creepy,
I love their dresses, basket and the clothesline behind them!

and here are a few favorite quotes for you too:

On Halloween, what bothers some
      About these witches, is how come
      In sailing, through the air, like bats
      They never seem, to lose their hats?
Hitchhiking owls, as we have seen,
      Ride nicely on this queer machine...
Another thing: if brooms can fly,
      Do witches keep them handy-by
      To sweep the kitchen floor with, say?
      Or do they have them locked away
      For private passage through the sky?
~David McCord (1897–1997), "Witch's Broom Notes"

 A gypsy fire is on the hearth,
Sign of the carnival of mirth;
Through the dun fields and from the glade
Flash merry folk in masquerade,
For this is Hallowe'en!
~Author unknown

They that are born on Halloween shall see more than other folk. 
~Saying of unknown origin

You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.
~Carolyn Wells


Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!
~Elizabeth Akers Allen

Blessings from the Farm
