Last Minute Halloween

We can't depend on the Wicked Witch of the West to come down the chimney....
and make it a perfect Halloween...but
I found some great last minute ideas for Halloween on Pinterest 
that will add to your Halloween festivities.
Martha always does the best Halloween stuff.
How about a quick cut up of a black or white t-shirt to turn it into a special Halloween top?
Just some kisses and cookies make these cute witch's hat cookies.
Add a Peep Ghost to any hot drink and you've got a Halloween party in a cup.
cellophane bags of marshmellows become instant ghosts.

Pier 1 has marked all their Halloween down 50%.
These are some of my favorites that are still available.
There are still lots of good things.

Like this cute witch's apron.
A fabulous witch's hat

cute sparkly owl
magical vine pumpkins

And now I'm going to go make pumpkin muffins for a friend.

Have you tried this recipe? I got it a couple of years ago from 

This is my kind of recipe...super simple.

Preheat oven to 425

1 box spice cake mix and 1 can of pumpkin.
Mix together put in cupcake liners in a cupcake pan.
The dough will be very stiff.
That is fine.
Cook 18 minutes.

That's it!

They are so good. 

I can imagine they'd be great with chocolate chips mixed in or nuts and with 
a cinnamon vanilla icing on top. But I like them just plain.
