Thanks for the chance of winning! Overhere in Holland we don't celebrate Halloween like you do. It is getting more popular every year and we can buy "scary things" in the shops now but there is no trick or treat and children visiting our houses. Perhaps in a few more years it is here to stay just like Valentine :-))
Have a great Halloween party!! Hugs, Marianne MW from http://Mariannesblogje.blogspot.com

Thanks for the giveaway chance Rose - this set looks so versatile!
We don't celebrate Halloween in our house... it's not such a tradition here in the UK, but I love to celebrate autumn, and all the yummy seasonal cooking that goes with it!!

Hello Rose,
As Marianne wrote, Halloween is not that populair here in The Netherlands. But I think that Halloween isn't a thing I would celebrate anyway.
But I like pumpkins, especially pumpkin-soup, hmmm (-;
Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful stamp set.
Have a great evening,
greetings Judith

Hi Rose first thank you for all you share on your blog. You are such an artist. Halloween is my favorite time-I enjoy decorating and seeing all the cute costumes on such adorable children. I love their smiles. I remember as a child my sister would take me "Trick or Treating" she was so nice to help me enjoy this time. Have a Happy Halloween and would love to see pictures of your day.

Oh my goodness, when I clicked on your blog to leave a comment Frank Sinatra was singing (The Way You Look Tonight) I love that type of music. I grew up in the psychedelic
era but, I loved this style of music.Made me smile. My favorite Halloween memory was when I was in the 3rd grade. I was in the hospital that day having my tonsils taken out so, no Trick or Treating for me. Much to my surprise after I got home a few days later I found out that my little sister (we didn't always get along) had gone Trick or Treating and told everyone that was giving out candy that, they had to give her 2 pieces of candy cause her sister was in the hospital and couldn't go out to Trick or Treat. Of course they gave it to her. So it turned out to be a good Halloween after all, thanks to my little sister.
Thank you for the chance to win that adorable stamp set.

I don't have any favorite memories of Halloween because when I was a kid we didn't really celebrate it.
Hope your son enjoys his 1st Halloween!

Rose, Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us...it is so inspirational. My favorite thing about Halloween has always been making the costumes for my kids and then seeing their faces light up when they put them on.

Kathy Mc said...

Love this stamp set ~ the flower-filled vase and coffee cups would fill a definite void in my stamping arsenal. Always remember trick or treating door-to-door with friends in my small hometown where we knew everyone so it was safe. Kids can't do that now without parents tagging along. Love Fall and seeing what kids are dressed as now. Sometimes it's hard to figure them out. Thanks for the chance to win your FF giveaway!

Romaine said...

Have fun with Denver and his "firsts". It has been 13 years since my eldest's Halloween was a first!
Thanks for the chance! :0)

Hi Rose, we don't have a Halloween tradition in Belgium. We only have pumpkins as decoration, but no 'trick or treat' or scary clothing. Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings, Annelies

My happiest Halloween memories are of trick or treating in our very rural community when I was a little girl. We drove from home to home, and only went to 10 or 12 places, just relatives and close friends. But each home offered a different homemade treat: popcorn balls, carameled apples, hot apple cider, cupcake....the list goes on. It was almost like a progressive dinner! Everyone looked forward to us coming, and we usually went in to visit for a while.

here in Germany we don't celebrate Halloween. It's a pity because I like spook and to make Halloween projects.

Thanks for the chance at winning the stamp set, one that I don't have yet. My memories of Halloween were my older cousin and husband taking my brothers and I trick or treating to neighboring farms and them trying to guess who we were. We would park down the road and walk to their house so they couldn't recognize the car.
Can't wait to see the pictures of Denver's first Halloween.

Halloween is FUN!
We especially enjoy the challenge to make the jack-o-lantern matches dd's Halloween costume. I suggested Emerald City to go with her Dorothy costume this year, but my DH has a different idea, so we will see : )

As Regina said, Halloween is not celebrated in Germany. Well, some supermarkets have offers of special candy and you can buy some skelettons or so, but nothing real scary. In some clubs, there are halloween parties where people dress up and a year ago some kids tried trick or treat at my door but I wasn't prepared.
On one hand I think this is a pity as I love scary things and the good old horror movies, but on the other hand I think that halloween is an American holiday which is only adapted for commercial reasons without people understanding. But it's so much fun.
In southern Germany you can find some real scary traditions around New Years Eve and Fasnacht, where people dressed like devils and demons march through the villages. That really creeped me out when I was a little kid.

Luanne said...

Hi Rose! Glad to be here and I am your new follower. Halloween is not a popular event in the Philippines, houses don't decorate or have trick/treats, but we have them in my company, we decorate our department and have 1 person to be in costume and employee children come visit each dept for trick/treat.

I'm not a big fan of Halloween but this will be my grandson's 1st real Halloween this year so I'm kind of excited about it! He is 1 1/2 years old and will be in a little solder's costume. His dad is about to deploy to Afghanistan and everytime he sees camo he says "da-da"! Thanks for the chance to win blog candy and I enjoy looking at your lovely work.

Keep up the beautiful work and thank you for sharing !
