Halloween, Not Really

Halloween is not really enjoyed

here. When I was growing up

we only ever saw images

of Halloween through American

TV series.

Somehow Halloween doesn`t

seem right in Spring, maybe 

that`s why it hasn`t really

caught on here.

We now see supermarkets

trying to promote it, 

with related products,

not big sellers I`m sure.

So no wonderful costume

ideas from me,my

black and white was

the order of the day.

I added a burnt

orange wrap for

a nod to traditional

Autumn tones.

Maybe one day

I will experience

a true Halloween .

On another note

I would like to

introduce the

newest addition 

to our family,

this little white

fluffball named


Joining the clever

Rosie and Sacramento

for Share-in-Style

and admiring all

the Halloween ideas.

    We don't really celebrate Halloween, either. We call it All Saints Day, and it's just a day to light candles on the graves of your loved ones, not very uplifting… But Raffy is cute… it must be wonderful to have such an adorable pet. And you look very stylish walking him / her.

      Tiina, you All Saints Day, though as you say not really uplifting is a gentle way to remember your loved ones.Raffy is an adorable little boy and has fitted in very well in this family.

    It's a great outfit in b&w with the orange scarf as a highlight.You are right: Halloween must be an autumnal holiday, for me it is unthinkable in spring too…Raffy is so cute, have a nice time with him 🙂

    Raffy is just precious and goes so well with your lovely black and white outfit!Halloween in the States has become an excuse to dress up in ridiculous outfits – which, let's fact it, can be quite fun. It was nice of you to add the autumnal orange in deference to those of currently experiencing Fall.Aliciaspashionista.com

    Oh Raffy is adorable!! Lots of mischief I assume? :)I LOVE your outfit! The lacy vest is gorgeous, and I love how you pared it with the ruffled blouse, and your accessories are icing on the cake! Wonderful whimsical look, as you do so beautifully, Jill!

    Hallween is not traditional in Italy . And I remember there were no celebrations when I was young. Then little by little Italians discovered it…You have many very cute hats, and the one you are wearing today is so beautiful! Your black and white look is great!p.s.What a lovable puppy! He will bring a lot of joy in your home…the dogs are sweet, very sensitive animals!

      I had wondered if Halloween is celebrated in Europe, sounds a little like here, for some it is an excuse for a celebration. I know you are a dog person , they add so much joy to life don`t they.

    I never really thought about Halloween in other countries, I guess it would be a bit odd in Spring! Tbh, in UK we generally do celebrate Halloween but nowhere near as much as in America! I guess it's all the horror movies over there! Have a good weekend!
