Welcome to Kris Dickinson's "A Nostalgic Halloween"
Thank you for visiting A Nostalgic Halloween. I have loved this holiday since I was a small child. I love the decorations, costumes, trick-or-treating, parties and all the joys of this wonderful, fall holiday. I've created this blog to showcase my original art, decorations, favorite sites and information about Halloween (nothing too scary, though!) I also post Halloween Ephemera to share. I hope you enjoy a trip back through yesteryear....Happy Haunting!

Oh, I love all those tiny drops of blood. The small metal frame would make a gorgeous necklace. She's very scary indeed!
Love the raven and the bat wings. She looks so sweet and innocent at first glance.
This is really beautiful. I love the juxtaposition of the gothic niche that made Poe so popular with the beautiful little cherub looking girl.
