Mondays, Ugh.

Well, its the start of another least that means we're one more week closer to Halloween! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Enjoy your week as well!

I found this image on the All Hallow's Eve Facebook page. If you get a chance, hop on over there and give them a LIKE!

Jack-O-Lantern Face Swaps (Volume II)

Yeah, so face swapping isn't really that big of a thing anymore...but its still pretty hilarious, especially when it involves MY favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN! Last year, it was predicted that face swapping with Jack-o-Lanterns was going to be the next big thing. However, that phenomena never really took off....perhaps it was just too creepy? Anyway, it was difficult, but I managed to find a few more examples to add to last year's collection. I hope you enjoy the horror...and if you're so inclined, send me your own Jack-o-Lantern face swap photos. I'd love to feature them here!

Pumpkin the Python

Meet Pumpkin! Pumpkin is a pied (pie bald) ball python whose picture recently caused quite a stir when it was shared on the Zoo Creatures Facebook page. The pet store, located in New Hampshire, is offering Pumpkin up for sale, but don't bet on this lil' cutie being available for too long. With that adorable jack-o-lantern marking and the close proximity to Halloween, someone is sure to give this the unique reptile a new home sooner rather than later.

1958 Halloween Poem

It's let's have a little throwback! This image, with the accompanying poem by Alice Swaim entitled Night for Pretending, was found on the Doo Wacka Doodles blog. The date given was 1958.

Haunted Halloween Farm

I have a confession. I used to hate the color orange. I still loved Halloween, but my aesthetic definitely left out anything pumpkin-colored. But, as I've gotten older, my tastes have definitely changed. I have found myself falling in love with absolutely anything featuring black and dark burnt orange. There is just something so vintage and nostalgic about this color combination---I honestly cannot get enough of it! 

A beautiful example of such is this painting by Ryta (rytaray) entitled Haunted Halloween Farm. At one time, prints were available of this visually stunning piece of art, but unfortunately do not seem to be available at this time. However, go check her out on eBay and maybe you can get lucky! She has a wonderful collection of similar vintage images in her shop.

Ghost Hug!

Hello, everyone! I know its only September 11th, but I'm already so excited for Halloween. Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year, so I tend to go a little overboard in the celebrations. September 1st generally marks the first day of the Halloween season for me! 

However, today the celebration is a little subdued. Today marks the 16th anniversary of the tragic 9/11 attacks. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused so much damage to the southern part of our country. Mexico was recently rocked with an extremely large earthquake. All over the world, countless people are hurting for various reasons. So, today, I'm sending out a ghost hug to any and all who need it. Feel free to pass it on!

Halloween Glow in the Dark Vodka Ghosts

It's another Foodie Friday here at Theresa's Halloween Wonderland and today I'm sharing a really fun idea that would make a great addition to any ADULT Halloween party:  Glowing Ghost Jello Shots!

With a little tonic water (you need the quinine to react under the black light), some booze, gelatin, and a ghost mold, you can make some pretty cute alcoholic treats for you and your guests! This video comes from Tipsy Bartender. Make sure you check below the video for a link to an ice cube mold...and happy haunting!
