Have a Hideous Halloween

* Edward Gorey was a brilliantly talented American artist-illustrator who might appreciate me using the term: RIP (1925-2000).

What happened to your pretty blog? Is it possessed? Ellen

Kate said...

Hey, ellen; Long time, no see. Is it too much?

Kate said...

Hi, KC!
Well, this is all your fault. Remember last Friday when you told me to start teaching myself flash programming and all that jazz?

You've created a monster. (pun intended.)

I shall miss you tomorrow, too. Though I've got a grand idea for next Friday!

Uh huh a bit much. What about people you don't know who visit your blog? - E

Kate said...

Oh, Ellen... that is so you to think that anyone, any where actually reads this silly blog!

Would you like to be my marketing director? It doesn't pay very well... i.e. nothing. But wouldn't it be fun to work together?

You should have your people call my people...!

Hi, Wisconsin Gardener!

My Haralson apple trees are alive and well. Moving at a snails pace but they seem happy. I would have thought they'd be taller by now... :(

jan said...

Very fun! I love the Gorey Show!

Kate said...

Thanks, Jan :)

Iron Needles said...

I love that book! Happy Halloween. Even though it seems a bit more like Christmas here...

Kate said...

It's a favorite of mine, too. I hope your snow melts. Too early for that stuff!

Sandy said...

Love the blog. I am going to show the pics to our art teacher in case she isn't familiar with them, they'd be great for our students. I've even added the Gorey book to my book list, what an appropriate last name. Luna is sitting next to me and freaked out with the scary noises, especially the cats. Very fun!

Kate said...

Thanks, Sandy! Those sound effects scared Bad Dog, too. :)

Kate said...

Thanks, Joy!

YOU were my inspiration. I visited your blog and saw those lovely Vintage Halloween cards and thought: hmmm... I wanna get in the Halloween spirit...

fairegarden said...

Hi Kate, I came via Joy and was thrilled with your Hallowe'en look! Love every single thing about it. The Gory work was brilliant! I believe we have Peetie Pie's sister, Hazle living with us too. :-)

Kate said...

Wow, thanks Frances. That is very sweet of you to say! I was inspired by Joy and her love of Halloween! It's been fun...

Rose said...

Thoroughly spooky! Gorey was aptly named. Have a spooktacular Halloween!

joey said...

Flew over on my broom from Joy's ... a delightfully spooky post, perfect for this fun day. Happy Halloween!

Kate said...

Kate said...

Thanks, Rosey;
Cleaning up my blog after decking it out for Halloween was as much work as cleaning up after a real world house party. Even so, it was lots of fun to do.

Kate said...

PS to Rosey;
And I have YOU to thank for teaching me how to add sound effects to the blog. thx, again.
