A Wondrous Week of Halloween Earrings

I don't know about you, but throughout the month of October, I like to wear a different pair of Halloween earrings each day.  And yes, this is easier for me, since I like to MAKE Halloween earrings.  So I'm going to take you to the Magical Land where Halloween earrings live when they're not with you, where they belong.

I found them on their break (as usual).  Good thing they don't have a sign that says HALLOWEEN EARRINGS AT WORK" or people would drive by and point and mock them.

Though they were on a break, they were more than willing to chat... as long as I plied them with wine and headpins.

The ghouls, as it turns out, were using their down time to practice their karaoke.  In case you didn't know, ghouls LOVE karaoke and can often be found elbowing their way into karaoke competitions, especially when there are prizes involved.  I left them working on the bridge to "Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun."

Even more communicative were the skull and bones crew ~ skulls carved from, well, bones.  They sounded a bit like Huey, Dewey, and Louie... if Huey, Dewey, and Louie were Huey, Dewey, and Louie and Huey, Dewey, and Louie.  Everything they commented on was repeated, and repeated, and repeated.

The candy corns were posing.  They're apparently working on a campaign to have them included as a food group on the food pyramid.

The goblins were writing the charter for the Goblin Anti-Defamation League.  They insisted that goblins do not eat rancid flesh.  Well, it's flesh, but it's not really rancid.  I believe "well-aged" was the term they preferred.  And that stuff about hiding in chimneys and woodpiles?  Largely exaggerated.

The Día de los Muertos  skulls were counting the days until the Día de los Muertos, looking forward to the feasting and feting they so richly deserved.  But they were unsure how to calculate how many days there still were.  I gave them a complex formula (take Halloween and add 2) and left them working on the math.

The crystal skulls were reminiscing about their days with Indiana Jones, and didn't have time to talk to me.

By the time I reached the bats, they said they were done hanging out.  They turned themselves upright and life returned to normal in the Land of Halloween Charms.

You can purchase the whole set of Halloween earrings for $100.  But they'll probably deny having the conversations we had today.
