I love creepy things in October

I have loved strange, creepy, spooky and macabre things since childhood, especially in October. I love ghost stories and psychologically scary movies like The Turn of the Screw, The Birds, The Blair Witch Project and The Others. October is my favorite month and the beginning of my favorite season, autumn. 

Most people think of autumn as the time when the leaves change color and the pumpkins get plump. How quaint.

To me, October is the approach to Halloween, the Day of the Dead, and All Souls Day. It is a time to consider the darker side, even though we live in the lighter side. To me October is full of mystery, graveyards, ghosts and an Alfred Hitchcock-like view of things. 

When you are sweet with a dark side like I am, you can see anything and find some strangeness in it. Looking at my etsy shop, things look completely normal, until you look at them with my October point of view.....

we start on a moonlit night, but the sky is very, very black. Why are the color so neon bright on such a dark night....very strange.....

Creepy moonlit night
....and what exactly happens when the moon is full? Those animals look somewhat malevolent.....

Look- some mysterious Gothic gates. They look a little foreboding----what could be behind them?

An abandoned cloister? What strange stained glass windows....they look like mirrors.

Oh- the cloister is not quite deserted....but that nun looks a little.....strange.....glassy eyed.....demented?!? Ahhhhh!

Run away! Run away! Look- it's an unoccupied mustache- never good!

Come on- let's hide in this nearby swamp- it's safe, right? Wait----what in the world are those? They look slimy and extremely threatening.....

Run into the forest. We should be safe here. Wait a minute.....arghhhhh! That bird definitely looks menacing, and a little decayed.....
