This is for the etsy bloggers' team carnival--
Halloween -- What are you doing to celebrate this year?  Share about your etsy shop, traditions/plans with your family and friends, or even home decor.  
(This carnival will be published on Monday (10/26) on A Keeper's Jackpot's BLOG.)

This year, we will be handing out candy (yes, I did try non-sugar items in the past) to little beggars of the goblin and witch variety.  I love to see the neighbor kids dressed up in creative costumes.

Here are a couple items from my shop that  would be great for this time of year:

Here are 2 customers in their costumes:

Aren't they cute?!

Find these items in my Splendid Little Stars SHOP.
JACK (pumpkin shirt above)
SWIRL SHIRT  (both children's and adult's, and long and short sleeve are available) 

Here are 2 little witches I love.  An artist friend who owned the gift shop with me, made these a few years ago.  One of them sits on a yellow wooden moon that then hangs on the wall.

    As for me on Halloween, I now live a bit too far off the beaten path and don't really expect any little goblins this year, but I think I'll go to my Mom's and help pass out candy there, as well as ooohhh and aaahhh over all of the cute little ones and their costumes.
