Halloween Glitterville Giveaway



I'm a Halloween fan. Love the pumpkins, love the candy and love the fun dressing up. My dressing up days are long past, but the memories are very dear. We moved when I was seven and had the good fortune to live next door to two girls who became my best childhood friends. Diane was my age and Laurie was a year older. We spent infinite hours together and one of our favorite days was Halloween. The three of us would go out together to collect our treats. It was a different universe then and we safely roamed the two blocks surrounding our houses, without an adult with us. The neighbors knew us and the older kids on the block kept an eye on us, and yes, we had the best time!

At BookExpo I had the wonderful fortune of winning the Glitterville Halloween collection bag pictured above. Glitterville has the most amazing fun holiday and celebration decorations imaginable. This was in June. At the time I thought it would make a great blog giveaway. I put it away and almost forgot I had it until just a few days ago. Happily I remembered it and it's the second of three October giveaways.

The entry rules are simple. Please post who the lucky winning trick-or-treater will be and please be a follower of Buttercup's. Easy Peasy! The contest closes at 11:59 on Tuesday, October 16 and I will post the winner on Wednesday, October 17. I'm so glad I can share my good fortune with the citizens of Buttercupland.  

Life in Buttercupland is sweet. This morning's rain turned to a perfect autumn afternoon and I'm feeling a spurt of energy. Here's to autumn in New York and autumn cheer everywhere.
