I’m probably stretching it by using the word porch, but I’m definitely not exaggerating about the thrifty part. […]

Salem witch museum and a visit to Salem Massachusetts on Halloween of 2014

Postcards from Salem Massachusetts on Halloween

Last fall at this time, my son and I were in Salem Massachusetts on Halloween.  I never imagined I’d visit this town, let alone on the one day of the year where the town’s claim to fame plays a primary role in the day’s celebrations.  Ken, my husband, didn’t get to go, so these are […]

If, If, If and the Very Scary Basement

Classic, Cute or Creepy Halloween Ideas

Teen Project: Pumpkin Patch Goes Graffiti
