Beautiful October

I love October!

It's one of the best months! It's the one true Autumn month, the one which shows you the leaves turning, darker nights and, if you're lucky, those Silent Hill-ish foggy evenings. I don't even particularly care for all the pumpkin-flavored things that are everywhere, but once they start popping up on the coffee shop menus, you know things are about to get good.

Fall is my favorite season (Duh! Obviously, I'm pretty sure you could tell already), but you know what the absolute best part of October is, right?

That's right, kids*, it's Halloween!

Pumpkin Carving Halloween kicks all the other holidays ass. (Well, Christmas is up there too)

To celebrate this awesomemest of holidays, I am doing my first ever Halloween theme month here at Brinner! There will be a few Halloween tutorials, some Halloween related posts, there will be an opportunity to get some Halloween mail from me... Oh yes, it'll be glorious!

I'm working on some of the plans as we speak, but now you have an opportunity as well to ask for any Halloween related posts, tutorials or ideas. Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to read about, history of Halloween, costume ideas, how to carve a pumpkin, decorations, etc, etc...

The floor is yours, please leave any and all comments below. (Even if it's just saying how awesome Halloween is!)

*) Did you say that in a Ted Mosby voice? 'Cuz I totally did.


  1. oh, mä haluaisin niin joskus viettää Halloweenia Pohjois-Amerikassa. Täällä se Halloweenin viettäminen on niin teennäistä, koska eihän se ole mikään Pohjoismaiden holiday ..

    1. Ma itseasiassa venailen Halloweenia tana vuonna ihan erityisesti koska taalla englanninkielisen kanadan puolella ilmeisesti juhlitaan ihan eri tavalla kuin Quebecissa. Montrealissa ma oon asunut vaan keskustassa, joten en samalla tavalla nahnyt halloween juttuja. Nyt asutaan edelleen kaupungissa, mutta aluella jossa asuu enemman lapsia, joten Halloweenia kuulemma juhlitaan enemman. Yritan nappailla kuvia kun paastaan lahemmas.

  2. Halloween IS awesome! And so is your Etsy shop. I've favorited a few things so I can come back to them later. You're so creative!

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely words! Totally made my day! (Sorry for the late reply, I had hundreds of spam comments to delete)
