Pierrine Follow Friday – Week 11: Halloween Theme

Pierrine’s Follow Friday is normally when I pick a few of my fav followers on Twitter from @PierrineJewels and then mention them in a tweet and here on Pierrine’s Blog, but I started something different on Week 7 which had a good response using a theme.

This week I have chosen a HALLOWEEN THEME.
This is for several reasons: Halloween will soon be upon us and I don’t normally get into the whole spirit but I am trying a bit harder this year. I also write a blog for The Best of Guernsey and recently posted a blog on Pumpkin Carving Tips which has got me in the mood and feeling a little bit orange (well more than usual as I am ginger!). Hope these inspire you to decorate your garden, fireplace, party venue etc.

Not all the Folksy Folk are on twitter and therefore I have linked directly to some of them on Folksy.

Cranberry Charms – Mini Pumpkin Wreath

This really gorgeous rustic country wreath consists of mini pumpkins and bay leaves. It is finished with jute string to hang and a homespun bow. This will look stunning placed on a front door welcoming your guests or trick or treaters.

Diomo Glass – Halloween Spiders

Several of these dark brown/black glass nugget Halloween spiders dotted around your house will really bring an atmosphere. They enjoy sitting around and need minimal care!

Silver Birch Crafts – Happy Halloween Bunting

This bunting will make any room more spooky and really bring halloween inside. Alternatively this could be used to decorate a door way to welcome any visitors to your door!

Mud Meddling – Hanging Ghostly Decorations

Halloween just isn’t Halloween without some ghosts. I love these cute and spooky clay hanging ghost decorations. These dinky little Halloween ghost ornaments are the perfect addition to your spooky decorations, or to give as a quirky little gift.

Janine Basil – Cobweb Hat with Glitter and Hanging Spider

Stunning hat to wear to that special Halloween party. You will be the talk of the party with this fun, glittery cobweb and spider on a black straw base, held on with a comb.

Well enjoy all the Halloween celebrations and if you can’t be nice, be naughty!



Julie and Julia

So I’ve just finished watching the film ‘Julie and Julia’ and really feel inspired. If you haven’t heard of the film it is about a cook called Julia Chick and a blogger called Julie Powell. Julie loved cooking and writing and decided to set herself a challenge and blog about her idol’s cook book. She gave herself one year to try out all the recipes in the book and blog about them. It ended up becoming so successful her story was made into a book and now a film. A truly inspirational story to all writers and bloggers I think.

It has made me stop and think about what I blog about in Pierrine’s Blog and I definitely feel I want to put more effort into it and put more of me and my personality into it. I love writing and was always quite good at writing stories at school and even won a prize once for a story I wrote about a deaf girl. What makes me want to write more is that my Granny was a great cook, an artist and a writer. She wrote a column for the Manchester News which included her drawings and a story about a certain family each week. She based it on her own family – herself, her husband, her daughter and her son (my father).
