It's no secret that I've always been a little suspect of Halloween. Partly because of the ghouls and what have you, partly because it's a holiday that revolves around food (if Reese cups can be called food) instead of stuff. I'm told that after my first time trick-or-treating, I lined up my candy instead of eating it. Which sounds about right, considering that whenever I got a goody bag at the end of a birthday party, I was more excited about the stickers than the Tootsie roll pops. Still, I decided to trick Tammy out in this pumpkin pail on the heels of this Halloween weekend. The husband was kind enough to slice out the bottom (almost as if he were carving a real pumpkin!), making for a much better fit. My first round of pictures, which featured the intact pumpkin awkwardly perched on top of Tammy's neck instead of around it, were downright frightening, and not in the good way.
Speaking of treat bags (which I was, albeit a paragraph ago), A. C. Moore is now packaging jewelry supply purchases in fancy pink and black shopping bags, complete with pink tissue paper. A far cry from the standard Thank You for Shopping-style white plastic bags that they used to give you, and in fact still do at the rest of the registers (the jewelry register is now sequestered from the other checkouts, giving the jewelry department an exclusive, boutique-y feel), it's just the sort of "carrier bag" that Confessions of a Shopaholic's Rebecca Bloomwood would have displayed on the back of her bedroom door. Although I haven't gone that far, I still have mine, just waiting to fill it with something awesome. Like maybe some beads shaped like candy.
