A little History on Halloween
We all now call October 31st Halloween that is what we have known it as for years & years,but have you ever thought about if it was always called Halloween or how it all started? It wasn't always about costumes & candy, Halloween has origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain.The festival of Samhain celebrates the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half",& is sometimes regarded as the "Celtic New Year" The celebration has some elements of a festival of the dead. The ancient Gaels believed that the border between this world & the Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through.The family's ancestors were honored & invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes & masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit & thus avoid harm.Bonfires were a large part in celebration during this time,building two bonfires next to each other & then walking between the two was believed to "cleanse" you.

Now onto a bit of Halloween fun,I am in a lovely BNR (Click here to visit) Where we play games,have scavenger hunts & More. Recently we did a Halloween version of Secret Santa called "Secret Ghouls" where those who wanted to be part of it signed up & got assigned a partner to send a gift to. I received Mine yesterday from my BNR member PnsNNedls.etsy.com I received this very cute hand painted Skull
If you would like to join in the fun & get some awesome gifts join our BNR by clicking the link above.

Pumpkin Carving:
he American tradition of carving pumpkins preceded the Great Famine period of Irish immigration & was originally associated with harvest time in general, not becoming specifically associated with Halloween until the mid-to-late 1800s.It is also said the Jack o lantern was carved & placed on door steps to light the way home for parted loved ones,whos spirit could visit home on All Hallows Eve

My family & I went out this week & bought our pumpkins for carving This is how they turned out:

From Left to right: My Daughters (we carved it for her this is her first Halloween),My fiances, & Mine
If you think these are cute then you should check out my Adorable Halloween Magnet set which can be found on Sale in my Etsy store

Today I will be Doing a Double Whammy! As usual haha,Prepare to have your eyes fall in love with your new favorite items this time this review is on Nature & Candles. First I will be reviewing DakorahGardens.etsy.com She makes Moss gardens & sells Succulents,Peppers & Cacti

Here is what I got to review:



I actually reviewed one very similar to this but due to my camera not doing what I would like it to,I am using a photo of one of her other Moss gardens.Package arrived in two days,& was packaged neatly with a little note on top,The jar had plenty of bubble wrap around it,it has its own little military defense system,The moss garden itself looks great I have always loved the way moss felt & looked so this review truly tickled my heart,I have one with a cute little Japanese bridge in it.Love plants? Is it hard for you to keep your plants alive? I would Highly suggest buying one of these it only needs to be watered once every 2-3 weeks & grows best in indirect sunlight, Her moss gardens are inexpensive & a unique gift.

Second I will be reviewing jennuinecandles.etsy.com She makes amazing scented candles that are 100% Palm wax

Here is what I got to review:


Package arrived within two days,it was packaged nicely so that the candle would not break during the shipment.Package right away smelled amazing.Candle looked great,the wax looks pretty & crystallized,upon opening I was hit with a wonderful berry explosion smell.When lit candle fills your home with its unique & wonderful scent,Instead of being like normal candles that tend to look nasty once you burn them it goes back to how it originally look which is a major plus for being a living room candle. All candle lovers should check out this shop & its wonderful candles available in many scents,shapes & colors.

-Notice: If you are waiting to be featured on the gift guide please be patient there is a small line I only post every 2-3 days to make sure everyone gets the same amount of exposure.
