I wanted to make the drawing for my first ever giveaway special, with little papers with names and a video, but, alas, the time flew by today and the darkness came so I had to trust technology to choose the winner of the little house.
So random.org decided that the winning comment was…
and that’s Elizabeth!
Congratulations! I will get in touch with you shortly to get your address.
I hope everybody is having a great weekend !
Have you ever heard about the Halloween Planet? The planet shaped like a pumpkin and lightened by the jack o’ lantern moon? No? Well, here it is!
Now let’s take a closer look…
Oh, we can go closer than that to see better!
Now..maybe that’s too close We don’t want to disturb whoever is living in this houses. Yes, the planet is full of orange and black little houses. Some are haunted by mischievous little ghosties, some are the homes of witches and other mysterious creatures.
On the Halloween Planet everybody knows that the best houses are the ones in the vicinity of the giant mushrooms. Or even better, on top of one. These mushrooms are very rare indeed.
Usually the witches are the ones living in the mushroom houses, because having a poisonous mushroom nearby comes in very handy for a serious witch.
Here ends our tour on the Halloween Planet. Maybe next year we will even meet some of the mysterious inhabitants of this world, but for now I was happy to show you where they live.
By the way, did you liked their little houses? I know it wouldn’t be very convenient for you to live here, but I bet I can have one of this houses delivered to you. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name next Saturday (the 23rd of October) and one of this little houses may be yours!
PS: Don’t forget to visit A Fanciful Twist for more Halloween party fun!
Last April, as we prepared for the move across the country, I tried to find things to be excited about near our new home. Well, living close to Paris was something to be happy about, but one other thing I was looking forward to was visiting La Cueillette du Plessis, a farm nearby and also getting their weekly “basket” of fruits and vegetables. (I’m very thankful to Croque Camille for posting about this farm at just the right moment!)
Since the spring, we made many visits to the farm and I can honestly say it’s the next best thing to having your own garden. I just love picking my own vegetables and fruits and they are as fresh as it gets. The supermarkets look like a sad place to shop now…
