Our Winner is…..
Krista from Missouri
We had a VERY CLOSE second place entry. Only 3/10ths of a point separated them!
Here is the breakdown of the top-ten (based on three judges, independently scoring… and, avering the scores):
We had such a blast reading the stories, posts, and book recommendations! For those who participated, we really appreciate it!
Krista, our grand prize winner, will win the HALLOWEEN BASKET O’ FUN!

TWO GIVE-A-WAYS… ONE MINE & ONE IS FROM ANOTHER…
Now, I must BRAG BRAG BRAG…
I am a total GIVEAWAY FREAK! I just love doing Thursday’s Thoughts and making things for winners! I just sent Alyce and Trisha some handmade book-floss book marks and hope they like them.
But, the award for the Halloween Haunt… this piece d’ resistance will definitely be LARGE, OVERFLOWING, FUN, AND TOTALLY COOL! The basket will be sent to only ONE LUCKY WINNER of The Halloween Haunt. Because there are cool decorations for your house, I want to allow for enough shipping time for the basket to arrive. Because of this, I have to have the enteries in by the 22nd… that’s SIX DAYS FOLKS!
For the giveaway, all you need to do is submit a Halloween story (it can be a creative story or a true one), some words about your favorite scariest book, scary memories… or whatever tale you think will fit in the “Scary Halloween” Genre. Or, have your kids write a Halloween story and submit theirs! You can post about it on your blog and put the link in the comments section, or, you can just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post it for you. You don’t want to miss out, trust me on that one! I’d want this basket! Also, if you post a badge on your site… I’ll enter you for a “Second Chance Drawing.” The prize for that is a secret, but you won’t be disappointed! Boo!
Here are the badges… plenty to chose from!

For the other GIVEAWAY…. the quilt. This is not mine… this is from Pigtails and Snails. It’s radically gorgeous! I’m entering~! Here’s the juice:
