When I was growing up, we walked around our little neighborhood which had all of four streets. There weren't even any street lights back then. As the sun was setting, the neighborhood kids, decked out in dime store costumes, took to the streets toting their bags or plastic jack-o-lanterns hoping for the "good" candy. Yeah, baby, I'm talking CHOCOLATE!
The pictures below shows the bag (front and back) that my Mom painted for me one Halloween. Did I mention that she was creative and talented? This bag is one of my treasures.
Who wouldn't want a custom made, hand painted Halloween treat bag?
Fast forward to adulthood, and living on a busy road that isn't suitable for trick or treaters. Upside? I get to eat ALL the candy.
Now we come to my artistic talents. I painted some treat bags a few years ago when Ashley's kids were here. Below we have a witch with some bats and a ghost. Scary, huh?
And here we have a very spooky tree, a full moon and a black cat - all essentials for Halloween.
I'd love to hear about your Halloween memories.
