The picture above is a perfect depiction of halloween…somewhat spooky, somewhat intriguing, somewhat cozy. It’s from Jacek Yerka’s collection of artwork. I love this kind of thing: odd, fantastical, extremely detailed, fantasy, subconscious, symbolic…it takes quite a while to notice everything that’s in the picture, and you’re never quite sure what it means, but somehow it’s like your own dreamscape, and it feels like it makes sense.

Hostess with the Mostess has a few posts on a bunch of halloween goodies for entertaining in the spirit of the holiday…I especially like the ceramic pumpkin lanterns…the ghost tealight holders…the cookies and chocolates…the black twig candles…and the various plates…

Martha Stewart also has a really neat alternative idea to silly jack-o-lanterns: lace-carved pumpkins. Beautiful! (But somewhat ridiculous! There’s no way those of us who have normal lives could afford the time it would take to make one of these…Damn you, Martha!)

Feeling a little hungry? How about some snacks?

And check out this cute little guy!
