Halloween Pencils

I always manage to accumulate a nice collection of Halloween pencils each year, so it was neat to find a blog called Pencil Revolution (dealing in matters of pencil philosophy) which happened to have a really neat photo of a bunch of seasonal pencils.

Parts of a Halloween Party



Found this cool appetizer recipe on canarygirl.com for what I'm assuming would be the world's coolest Halloween party.

Ingredients:
8 ounces orange cheese (I used aged cheddar last year, but it was pretty crumbly, so I’d recommend a softer cheese)10 pretzel sticks (about)parsley leaves for decoration

Preparation:
Form cheese into “pumpkin” shapes and arrange on a plate.Just before serving, insert pretzel stick pieces into the pumpkins for stems, and garnish with parsley leaves.

Something about folk art really really appeals to me. I'm digging the style of these decorations (I refuse to call them 'dolls'). The site offers both completed items or patterns, so you can make your own. Here are a few of my favorites:
