@JoScho I went to my old apt because I needed something (is that an excuse?🤔probably) and look what I found! Books full of secrets and poisons and horror and mystery! Books that every witch needs which means me!👻🖤🖤🖤🖤Let see what is inside ##NightmareSwap @LibrarianRyan

JoScho Yay yay yay!!!! 3w

My favorite treat during the Fall but especially for Halloween. Didn‘t have time to get the icing just right but can improve later today.
Pumpkin cookies recipe: 2 cups flour, 1tsp baking powder, 1tsp baking soda, 1tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt
Mix & set aside
1cup sugar, 1/2 tsp shortening, 1 can pumpkin -cream together
1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla—add in
Mix in dry mixture. Chill to roll or drop directly on baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 min 👇

Scochrane26 Icing-8 oz cream cheese, 1 lb box of powdered sugar, 1 stick butter add food coloring if you want. @Clwojick #scarathlon #teamslaughter 3w
Bklover Thanks for the recipe! I think I‘ll mix up a batch a bit later today. 🧡 3w
Bklover Just verifying - it‘s only 1/2 tsp shortening? 3w
Scochrane26 @Bklover yes, I know it‘s weird. 3w

1. I can‘t eat holiday themed candy, like Reese‘s pumpkins, etc. but my fav candy is Reese‘s pieces, peanut m&ms, and toblerone. Basically anything chocolate with nuts.
2. Cute spooky. I‘m kind of a big wimp.
3. Nope.
4. Fav Witch - Book Ginny Weasley; Eric from Trueblood series; Damon from Vampire Diaries;
In general, I like vampires, werewolves and witches for creatures. I don‘t like zombies!

#screamathon

Catsandbooks How did I forget about True blood?! 🤦🏼‍♀️ Love Eric! 🙌🏼 3mo

I'm also sending out this belated #Litsyswapoween package to a Litten who didn't receive thier box on Halloween... it was a little harder than I thought to put together as every store in my city seems to have flipped from Halloween to Xmas on Nov. 1. 🙄 BUT I like to shop 😉, so I think did ok. 🎃

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!
