boooo...hoooo...

happy halloween....to all.. boooo hooooo says my ceramic carved pumpkin to you..


we don't celebrate Halloween here.. only in some shopping centers.. just as an activation.. but it seems so fun.. for the kids especilly..that I wish we had..
last year we had a Halloween Party at home though.. did I ever mention that my niece.. who is now living in London..is married to an american whom she met there while studying at LSC.. ..
well their mother.. had decided to move in Istanbul.. she didnot want to go across the ocean each time she wanted to see her children.. thought of somewhere in central europe first..never about England as the weather did not suit her rheumatisms she said.. but when she came and stayed here sometime.. she decided to settle down .. in Istanbul.. last year Halloween was on a Sunday.. and my son said he wants to try to carve one of these pumpkin faces.. so while we were chatting and carving..we thought of Barbara.. and invited her to a Halloween Party.. which she accepted..
and we had so much fun.. she was so happy.. but no kid came and asked candies..
=(
well we shared a memory.. she is not here just now.. so no party for us this year..
enjoy.. Halloween..

It is no tradition here either, but it is starting to come. I just lit my lantern outside the main door and am waiting for ther first kids to come for sweets.

Well, you could eat lots of candy and get a stomachache!! That is how we celebrate here in Chicago, Illinois!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog, but I think I did not write my message very clearly. My Mom is still alive! Thank goodness. She just could not go with me to a postcard show last weekend. But guess what? We are going this weekend. I know I am a lucky girl.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
love,laura

Happy Halloween to You !

Did you carve a pumpkin this year ?

Any Trick or Treater's come by for candy?

You should have a lovely Halloween, anyway.

Sometimes apples are used here instead of candy.

Enjoy your day.
