Happy Halloween! | How About Orange

Happy Halloween!

If you like Halloween, I'm pretty sure you'll need to immediately download some wallpaper and get your computer looking festive. Pick from this big gallery at Smashing Magazine, or grab Eleanor Grosch's latest creations.

And then if you need a last minute card, download this freebie designed by Emily at Inside a Black Apple.

I saw this article on washingtonpost.com and thought of you.

A quote from the article which sums everything up: Orange is the ultimate anti-depressant," says Jonathan Adler, the potter, decorator and shop owner. "It's the color of sunshine. It's crisp and refreshing. It will always be my go-to color for a jolt of happiness."

I love that idea for carving pumpkins. It seems like every year carving pumpkins just sneaks up on me and I never feel prepared enough to try something new. This seems simple and yet has a very cool effect! Thanks!

I like the holey pumpkins. Especially the zig zag one - it reminds me of Charlie Brown's shirt.

I've got something orange for you (first pic, of course...)
I thought of you (I'm a frequent lurker on your blog) and thought I'd show you. I took the pics in my home area.
I'm sorry it's mostly in German, but then pics are beyond language borders ;-)

Halloween must be your favorite because of the abundance of orange!
