Just finished the October issue, which is Martha’s annual chance to get even weirder.
The recipe volume seems to be increasing lately, which keeps me from wasting all that time pretending like I’m going to write angry letters, and then there’s the usual cheerfully deranged decorations. And no October issue of Living would be complete without Martha in Halloween Drag (this one’s from an ad for the Halloween Handbook)…
Yes, the particularly odd* holiday that is Martha Halloween is here, and its spirit can be summed up in this quote from the Collecting section:
And that, after all, is reason enough to be charmed by witch balls.
*Odd but endearing. ODD BUT ENDEARING, MARTHA. Put down those eyes of newt and don’t hex me please.
