Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Hello there Ghouls and Goblins!

I hope that everyone had a spooktacular Halloween and that everyone woke up from their candy comatose without a hitch today.   I have to admit, I'm still excited about this years Halloween because I actually had 3 trick-or-treaters!  You have to understand, I have lived in the new neighborhood out in the "country" for 3 Halloween's now, and I have yet to have a little ghoulish fright visit my door for trick-or-treating, and last night, I managed to have 3!!!  Thank goodness I had the "good stuff" on hand.  :-D  

At any rate, now that Halloween has come and gone, AND since it is the Day of the Dead, I thought it might be a good time to share some thoughts with all of you, my faithful companions of Halloween and all thinks dark and sinister.   But, before I share what is on my mind though, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of those that stopped by and paid me a visit and made purchases from me at the Spirits in Sanford Halloween show at the beginning of the month.  I am happy to report that the show was a great success!  For those of you who were unable to attend, do not fear, I still have items left that are now available in my Etsy store and website   

Anyway, after much thought, and too, with the way this year has gone for me in my personal life, I have decided that trying to keep up 2 blogs with "separate identities; i.e. Coven of Crones" has been a bit much for me.  As a result, I have decided to keep everything under "The Pixie Knoll" name, which from here on out will be "The Pixie Knoll Halloween" for my Halloween goodies.  That is to say, I am NOT discontinuing the Halloween themed art by any means.  It just means that I am keeping it all in one place to make it easier for me to manage.   If you disagree, feel free to send me a message saying so, but, unless I have a mad, angry mob with pitch forks and fire beating down my front door, this is how it will have to be from here on out.  Yes, I admit, I think the Coven of Crones title was a lot of fun, but, it was good while it lasted and in truth, we don't need a bewitching title to have spooky fun. So, from this day forward, my post will be under "The Pixie Knoll" blog......just with a slight twist.  :-D   I do hope that all of you understand my decisions behind this.  It just simplifies things a bit for me.  Especially since I was double-posting all of my Halloween themed items anyway.  This will free up some time and permit me to do the thing that is most important....creating wonderful items for you, the collector!  So, as titled, "Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust"  Perfect for the Day of the Dead. 

And, for this final good-bye for the Coven of Crones blog, I leave with some pics of items that are still available on my website and Etsy store, along with a few items that I had with me at the Spirits in Sanford show this year.  And, remember, this isn't "The End" as in gone for's the fiery phoenix out of the ashes....rebuilding into something better for all!  The Pixie Knoll: Halloween!  Thanks for understanding my dear friends.  And, now...the photos!  Enjoy!
