I've always liked witches. (Good witches of course...) Happy Halloween my pretties!

This piece was inspired by my French Bulldog Sophie. Her first Halloween I bought her a pair of monarch wings to wear. In protest, when we weren't looking she ripped them off & quickly destroyed them. The next year I tried to dress her up as a bumble bee. (I guess I like the idea of something so dense & sturdy being able to fly?.?) The result was the same. We've given up on trying to dress her up & respect that it's not her thing. That said... she does happily rock a bandana a couple days of the week.
I love the month of October! There's still some warmth in the air, the season starts to shift & I pay a little more attention to nature. (like I do at the start of spring) The earlier nights feel like permission to retreat & the drudgery of winter is still a ways off. I also enjoy semi- scary ghost stories. Anything too terrifying will keep me up all night!
