I am happy to report, it was a very good little Hallowe’en in our new town.
I got Dave to take a picture before it got too dark, but was dark enough that you could see all my fun stuff lit up. And here’s a close up of my fantastic hat…
I absolutely adore it and I might wear it all year round – lol!
The night was great, it was chilly, but not too cold. I was warm enough with just my Lestrange cardigan on over my black dress. Next year I’m going to try to get a nice, big cloak to wear instead).
It was cloudy, and we were worried about rain, but happily, it held off until the trick-or-treaters were done. All tolled, we probably got about 80 kids, which is far better than we ever had at the townhouse. I bought enough candy for about 200, so Dave and I have a whole cauldron left to snack on still.
Now everything is packed away, but we have bigger, and better plans for next year! I can’t wait!

So glad you got so many trick-or-treaters! We only had one group come to the door and that was it! Love your hat!
Love your entire costume, especially the hat! And the Lestrange cardigan is perfect. Is it like the one worn in the movies?
At the end of the night we still had a big fat zero trick or treaters. About 10:00 Mom had somebody pound on her door and take off. She was terrified as it woke her out of a sound sleep. Just teenagers out causing havoc I guess.
Take care my friend.
How wonderful! I’m glad you and Dave had fun. I haven’t seen any trick or treaters in years, so I don’t buy candy anymore for Halloween. Your hat is fabulous!
You looked positively bewitching!
You looked great!! That is a nice witch hat. I used to have a good one but I have no idea what I did with it.
I love your costume and decorations! That hat is just so awesome and I can understand why it is a favorite. How wonderful that the trick or treaters showed up in good numbers. When I walked this morning, there was no evidence of trick or treating. Two years ago, there would have been candy wrappers, costume accessories, etc. dropped on the sidewalk.
That is a seriously wonderful hat!
I’m so glad you had fun–you look fantastic !
Ah yes a cloak! You need one …lined in red! Love the hat, looks like you had fun and that is what counts!!
