Halloween Movie Countdown...

Hocus Pocus...
First on the list,
I love this movie, I watch it every year. I first watched it when I was a teenager, but it scared me! ha,ha But I still loved it then too! around the week before Halloween I begin watching all those movies that tell me Halloween is nearly here... and if truth be told, it wouldn't feel like Halloween without them!

I will be counting down until Halloween the movies to look out for, when they are on...or what to buy or rent....

And so we begin with 'Hocus Pocus'
Here is a synopsis from the web..
'A teenager living in Salem breaks into a spooky house on Halloween, and accidentally resurrects three witches who were executed 300 years ago. The trio are soon causing chaos while seeking a suitable sacrifice for a ritual to give them everlasting youth. However, an old foe, a boy they turned into a cat, is on hand to help stop their mischief. Supernatural Disney comedy, starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy'

'Come Sisters'.... I do love the costumes the witches wear!

Winnie....... 'We Fly'..... 'On What' ??

' It's Just a bunch of Hocus Pocus'.... says Max Dennison before he lights the Black Flame candle .... that brings the Witches back to life!
The Sanderson House... now who would want to stumble across this on Halloween Night??....
I hope if you see this movie you enjoy it as much as I do, one day I hope to visit Salem, Its always been somewhere I wished to go. I know some of this movie was filmed there too.The old style buildings are beautiful...

I will leave you now as I am going to get some cocoa and snuggle down to watch the movie.....

Happy Halloween Movie watching everyone!

If you live in the uk you can buy this DVD at Morrison's and Asda... and

Halloween Stitching...

Hi Everyone, I hope you are having a good week.... I have been feeling rather crafty lately and have a few projects on the go and in the pipeline. I have been turning the tv off and stitching and crafting away into the wee early hours.....This is what I am working on at the moment

Bountiful Kitties - Mill Hill Kit

I am stitching the design on 16 count Aida rather than the perforated paper that came in the kit, I may stitch on that another time. I think I will frame the finished piece and add it to my Fall/Halloween decor...

I just love the designs that Mill Hill do, they have some cute Halloween and Christmas kits, I may just treat myself to a Christmas design 'before' Christmas...he,he

I bought mine from a website called 'Sew and So'..... here is the link

See you again soon

Books...Autumn Reading and Reviews

I have once again been collecting books from the library, some I ordered in advance the others I picked up of the shelves...

No Clue at The Inn - Kate Kingsbury I look forward to trying this new author, a lucky Library find

The Osiris Ritual - George Mann A library find.

The Solstice Of Stonewylde - Kitt Berry I have read the first in this series 'Magus Of Stonewylde', nearly finished the second, this is the third.


A Catered Halloween - Isis Crawford

I have been waiting to get my hands on A catered Halloween for about a year! I ordered it from the library as soon as it came in....... Then my mum surprised me with a gift! Mum had also bought me the book as she knew I had it on my Wish List on Amazon! ha,ha So now both mum and I have a copy to enjoy! I am keeping my gift and mums reading the library copy....

Here is the Synopsis from Fantastic Fiction

'With the promise of a hefty commission and some valuable word-of-mouth for their catering business, A Little Taste of Heaven, sisters Bernadette and Libby Simmons agree to cater the charity haunted house being staged at the old Peabody School. But when wealthy socialite Amethyst Applegate is found dead in the haunted house, Bernie and Libby wonder if a murderer might also be lurking about Peabody's gloomy halls...While almost everyone Amethyst ever met might have a motive for killing her, not everyone had access to the Peabody School. All Bernie and Libby know is if they don't solve this mystery soon, they might become the next stars in a real-life horror flick'...

Reading Update - reviews

I finished reading Frill Kill I mentioned in my last post. -

I enjoyed the book set in New Orleans around the Halloween season. Great descriptions, and interesting characters. Although I would of liked a bit more to the story, at times the pacing was slow...and the conclusion to the murder and 'who done it' was over very quickly! A nice light read, if like me you enjoy reading books set at Halloween.... but rather weak in other areas.

I also began reading Ghouls Just want to have fun...Unfortunately I read half of the book and gave up, this book moved far far to slow for my liking and the characters were becoming extremely annoying, they were fun and cute for a while, the main character reminding me of 'Buffy' the vampire slayer, sassy, witty.... but no storyline was developing and I became tired of the nonsense dribble of conversation between the two main characters... I wanted to like this more than I did, but I don't feel bad I gave up reading as there are more books to read and enjoy!

I am off now to finish reading 'Moondance of Stonewylde' the second book in the Stonewylde series. I have enjoyed the first two and will be reading the third soon...

See you again soon
