- The Frame Shop
I'm originally from New England so Halloween is a big thing for me, I'm absolutely baffled by the lack of engagement in the Midwest about it, except that autumn here is absolutely pathetic. (If you're lucky you get a week of somewhat nice leaves, then a wind storm comes along and rips them all off and then it's dreary until spring) Still, I can't help myself, so I decorate the shop's windows with Halloween stuff. I've found some antique prints that are pretty fun, the first one is from some kind of short story about children chasing a bagpiper Scot with turnip jack o' lanterns (they were what was used before pumpkins) which I just find hysterical. The second piece is a musical booklet from some show, unfortunately the music itself is for a song called "When the Cows Come Home" but the cover art is wonderful.
