Halloween DIY Round-Up

Hello dear little blog and blog readers…oh how I have missed you.  This last month has been one giant to-do list and blogging sadly ended up near the bottom and then the longer I have been away, the harder it has been to get back in.  So today, inspired by watching Julie & Julia (delightful movie),  I decided to dive right back in, starting with a post on Halloween.
Unless I had blinkers on, I don’t remember Halloween being something we really celebrated here in South Africa but over the past few years dress-up parties have been springing up all over the place.  We don’t seem to have bought into the trick-or-treating or the pranking but an excuse for a party and dress-up never hurt anyone.  So I thought I would put together a bunch of ideas, inspirations and recipes for all of your Halloween needs….
