Leftover Halloween Eye Candy November 15, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Home & Garden, Humor.

During a pre-Halloween visit to the mall, we enjoyed Halloween treats . . .

Holiday Eye Candy in assorted wrappers . . .

Great gaping ghoulish grins . . .

And anemic models . . .

Sporting toothy smiles that only a dentist would love . . .

At Cauldron & Brooms, we made our big (albeit little) purchase for the day ~> the perfect candy cauldron for my witch . . .

Aah . . . that’s better!

I realize we are a full 2 weeks post-Halloween . . . but if we have to listen to political ads in August and maneuver around Christmas store decor in October, why not enjoy leftover Halloween Eye Candy mid-November?

Love your little witch, Nancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

My mom gave her to me years ago ~ most years she’s our only Halloween decoration.

Now she’s got a cauldron to keep her company!

2. L. Marie - November 15, 2017

I greatly prefer your eye candy to all of the political ads! Thank you giving us a break from all of the hot air!

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

Thanks, Marie. Christmas ads are ramping up ~> last night we saw 4 in a row. ACK! Betwixt and between beribboned boxes, bags, and bows, the message came through loud and clear:

You witch looks like a nun I had in school. Confirms what I always thought.

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

Haha! They are sisters of a sort, eh?

Kate Crimmins - November 15, 2017

Not saying….lightning will strike me.

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

I understand, Kate. Best remain mum about the nun.

I still have a lot of Halloween candy left over in my house. There are probably enough Three Musketeers, Milky Way, and Snickers to have for dessert until Thanksgiving. I’ve read that chocolate isn’t just junk food; but it’s actually good nutritionally. It may be a coincidence, but since I’ve been eating these leftovers, I’ve noticed that my health has improved a bit. Maybe I should make them a permanent part of my diet?

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

Some of the studies showing the benefit of dark chocolate were funded by chocolate manufacturers . . . so they are suspect. That said, eating chocolate does increase endorphins in the brain, sending us a jolt of “happy.”

A small jolt of “happy” each day is GOOD!

I’ll go for the jolt of happy! Eye candy here means something quite other! Thought your blog was taking a different turn! ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

Here it means . . . “Something purely aesthetically pleasing, that is, pleasing to the senses. Can be a person, a film, a sunset, a flower, or anything else you can see.”

6. Ally Bean - November 15, 2017

Agreed. Live by your own timeline. Love the little fellow in the second photo.

nrhatch - November 15, 2017

He’s sweet!

7. Debra - November 17, 2017

It’s never the wrong time for a candy break! ๐Ÿ™‚ What unusual and FUN candy dispensers! I really like Dracula. And your little witch is adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - November 17, 2017

I got a kick out of these “sugar bowls” ~> despite missing the Halloween “deadline,” I couldn’t wait 12 mos. before sharing them.

My witch is very pleased with the addition to her “wardrobe.”

8. Behind the Story - November 18, 2017

There’s something very sweet about your little witch. The merchants in my little town had a Halloween scarecrow contest. Some of the entries were very creative. I voted for the entry from my favorite ladies apparel store. She was a dolled-up white manikin called Sugar Crow meant to represent a Mexican sugar skull, and she won. Too bad I didn’t take any photos.

nrhatch - November 18, 2017

Maybe Sugar Crow will make a reprise appearance next year. ๐Ÿ˜€

These days, even if my camera is handy, I often forget to snap that “perfect pic.”

9. Joanne Sisco - November 19, 2017

No argument from me on that one, Nancy. I suspect many people still have uneaten Hallowe’en candy!

nrhatch - November 19, 2017

But I bet all the “good stuff” is long gone. ๐Ÿ˜€

Joanne Sisco - November 22, 2017

This year I didn’t buy any chocolate or liquorice – my kryptonite.
Instead I bought small bags of chips which don’t represent a risk for me. I feel so smart ๐Ÿ˜‰

nrhatch - November 22, 2017

You IZ smart . . . and if you have any chips you don’t want, send them to ME!
