I'm still working on a couple of Eccentrics for Halloween. I have finished this scholarly little pumpkin head. Magnus is only about 6" tall, but full of enthusiasm. His school uniform includes shorts and suspenders, although the suspenders have fallen to the side.
He has a little plastic ring sewn on his back
so that I can hang him downstairs
when October arrives.
I purchased the tiny book last year,
but it was too small for the Eccentric witch I had in mind.
She preferred her little dog, anyway.
Which was fine with Magnus,
who loves a little bedtime reading.
My Reading: Still trying to catch up on reviews over at A Garden Carried in the Pocket. One fun book lately was The Spiritglass Charade by Colleen Gleason. Perfect for the approach to Halloween as it has spiritualism and vampires and Bram Stoker's sister and Sherlock Holmes' niece investigating dastardly crimes. Light, fun, YA novel--I enjoyed it. Review is in progress.
I finished and reviewed Failing Our Brightest Kids; it was certainly an eye-opener and gave me a lot to think about.
Found this on Facebook:
Have a great weekend, y'all.
