What can you do with two paper bags?




Some people might think that our mother thought we were ugly and made us wear paper bags over our faces. They would be wrong.






We were quite fetching as children.




See? A little Opie boy and a little Curlylocks girl.


Nope, we were making masks...and then we put them on... and then my Angel Mom who took pictures of everything we did...took a picture and she still does...takes pictures of everything we do.


I hope you see many masked goblins this Halloween. I hope they are friendly ones of course.

ooowaaa! (ghost talk)

Did you have a favorite Halloween getup as child?

  4. Hi!

    Trick-or-treating!:)

    I dropped by on Tuğçe's blog. Unfortunately we don't celebrate Halloween but have another one resembling to Halloween. We call it Şeker Bayramı( Candy Bairam). Children visit many houses and collect candies.

    Pics are amazingly cute.

    Have a nice Halloween and share your pics with us.

  5. Those types of paper bag costumes have more charm than the fancy store-bought ones. They really transport you to a simpler time, don't they? Happy Halloween!

    Tugce, Thanks for checking in. I thought the photos was worthy of sharing.

    Lesley, It is interesting to find out how other people around the world live and celebrate.

    Yagmur, Welcome!! I will say it again, that I am thrilled to hear about the customs lived around the world. Come back again.

    Joanne, It was simpler. And just because they were brown paper bags, doesn't make it any less amusing.

    Have a great weekend, Everyone!
