This is Halloween (Halloween, HALLOWEEN)

Happy happy Halloween ladies and gentleman! 

Last night when I got off the tube, the sky was full of fast moving, orange-tinged clouds against a black back drop - it probably/definitely was London pollution but it looked incredible and reminded me of how much I love this time of year. Cold, crisp, dry and with Autumn leaves in abundance, it's my favourite season.  

I also particularly enjoy Halloween, so to celebrate this all hallows eve you can get a 15% discount on your entire Wallpaper Rose order today using the discount code 'LOCKSHOCKANDBARREL' (Nightmare Before Christmas is the only film for me at this time of year) - valid until midnight, tonight.

Above is an illustration from one of my favourite children's book - The Thorn Witch, I always wanted the spider costume for Halloween - maybe if I actually have plans next year I'll try to make it. (In an aside, when trying to locate that image I discovered the illustrators blog, which is wildly exciting. I will be all over that once I've finished writing this) 

And to conclude, my annual Halloween photo - kindly photoshopped for me too many years ago to count, I've not ever had a costume to rival it, so each year it worms it's way into public view.

Happy Halloween everyone!
